The new generation Hyundai Tucson is running a test with extremely dense frequency …
Immediately after testing in Europe last week, the Korean SUV continued to return to its original position but this time with a more sparse camouflage, enough to see the front of the car with a new design. Previously, the area was covered by a black cloth almost entirely but now no more, revealing that Hyundai is testing a quite strange direction for mid-sized SUVs.
As can be seen in the photo, the front lights on the new Tucson are split into two parts with the main lighting unit located low on both sides of the heat sink while the auxiliary light is high and connected to this equipment. The lamp interface is somewhat similar to Mercedes-Benz’s electric car line is EQC while the overall nose of the car seems to be inspired by Hyundai’s hydrogen fuel product line, Nexo.
The front bumper looks sharper and has a fairly large opening underneath the radiator. The remaining changes are located in the wheels to support more aerodynamics. The body and side of the car are still well disguised, so it is unclear how to upgrade it.
The new Tucson size is expected to increase slightly to support the 3-row 7-seat configuration in some markets such as India. The car shares the same chassis with the upcoming Hyundai Santa Cruz pickup and so there’s the same engine options with the 2.5L Theta3 (both regular and turbocharged) certainly present, usually with an automatic transmission 8 levels.
