It is no secret that Hyundai is working on the next generation Tucson SUV, which is expected to make global debut sometime in 2020. In fact, Hyundai has started testing the new Tucson on foreign soil. The new spy images reveal new details about the production ready front design of the next Hyundai Tucson.
The next generation Hyundai Tucson features the brand’s new “waterfall” design philosophy, which is visible in the front design. It gets huge prominent front grille, which seems identical to the one offered in the Grandmaster concept. The split headlamp set-up is also on offer. While the thin LED lights are positioned on the upper flanks, the main headlamps are placed lower on the bumper. Similar design was seen on the latest Hyundai Kona and the Palisade. The front design looks completely different from the current Tucson.
Hyundai is reportedly working on the long wheelbase version of the Tucson as well. In fact, the regular Hyundai Tucson will be longer and wider than the outgoing model. The long wheelbase version will offer 3 row of seats with captain or bench-type seats for the second row. The new model will also receive completely new and luxurious interior. The SUV will come equipped with larger alloys, more comfort and convenience features along with advanced telematics.
In India, the next Hyundai Tucson will sit one segment above and will take the Santa Fe’s position. It will challenge the likes of the Honda CR-V, Skoda Kodiaq and others in the category. The new model is expected to be launched in the Indian market in 2021.
