2021 Hyundai Tucson
The Hyundai Tucson is one of those bread and butter vehicles for Hyundai. It’s essential the Tucson gets refreshed, but equally crucial for Hyundai not to screw it up. For 2021, Hyundai has taken a transformers approach similar to the new 2022 Hyundai Kona. Unlike the new Kona, the Tucson looks wicked from every angle.
Before we get into the design, Hyundai just pulled off an industry first, the Tucson comes in both a short and long wheelbase. That is unheard of for this segment, but Hyundai claims it is to meet diverse markets’ needs.
2021 Hyundai Tucson Exterior
Aside from that, I believe the headlights and taillights are the most striking aspects of the new Tucson. The headlights are known as “Parametric Hidden Lights.” It certainly looks like nothing else on the road, and I’m curious if this is even a production model because those lights don’t look like they meet any regulations, and the interior is still just a sketch. I hope it is production-ready because no one will claim Hyundai is copying other brands now.
The all-new Tucson features a larger and wider body than the previous generation. Hyundai is going for an angular, aggressive look, and I think this will certainly differentiate itself from the competitors as Hyundai seems to have no chill nowadays.
2021 Hyundai Tucson Interior
The interior is merely a sketch; the real interior has not gotten fully revealed. However, Hyundai states it wants the Tucson interior to resemble a modern boutique hotel. That’s nice, I suppose. Hyundai also says that technology and information are to intersect harmoniously, but all I'm seeing is a big slab of screen in the middle. I really hope Hyundai doesn't pull a Tesla on us, I hope there's some buttons or dials or something for the climate control.
2021 Hyundai Tucson Conclusion
The 2021 Hyundai Tucson should be fully unveiled on September 15, 2020. I am excited about this because the new Kona certainly looks good, but the rear end was virtually unchanged. Not so with the Tucson, but please let me know your thoughts below about the newly teased Tucson.
