The currently running Hyundai Tucson itself is one of the most aesthetic representatives of the compact recreational vehicle genre with its embodied public taste, with its distinctly harmonious, attractive lines.

Roaring with this conformism, the successor breaks, which will then be fully introduced by Hyundai on September 15th. Based on pre-published photos, the Tucson is moving from harmonic to radical: its nose design is inspired by the triangular façade of the new Elantra, which is complemented here by a special daylight solution: the extreme elements of the grille hide LEDs. The main light sources were probably located in recesses that seemed to be air inlets – both light solutions are shockingly different from what we have seen anywhere so far.

The tail is much less unique, although the light bar connecting the luminaires evoking Honda and Peugeot makes it look characteristic. Then we would rather highlight the polygonal inserts that adorn the wheel arches, the D-pillar, and the corners of the rear bumper; and the character line running from the nose to the tail, drawing a definite edge, is not stenciled either – of course we could only say for sure under normal lighting.

In the cabin, for sure, for sure, Hyundai follows the minimalist premium approach represented by Mercedes; the digital instrument panel sits deep in front of the driver without a frame, the center console as if it had flowed from the top of the instrument panel – undoubtedly the preliminary promises exciting solutions.
