      I know this definitely won't be to everyone's liking, but Hyundai/Kia continue to kill it with their onslaught of new and/or improved vehicles. This makes everything in the segment look 1-2 generations behind IMO.


      PRESS RELEASE:

      -The all-new Hyundai Tucson is the first C-SUV in its class to be available in both short and long wheelbases, depending on the region, to meet diverse market needs

      -Tucson’s ‘Parametric Dynamics’ exterior design theme features bold, angular surfaces and cutting-edge illumination

      -The new dual cockpit layout is intuitively optimized for a high-tech user experience


      SEOUL, September 2, 2020– Hyundai Motor Company today revealed the first images of its all-new Tucson. New design highlights include the latest evolution of Hyundai’s signature headlamp architecture called ‘Parametric Hidden Lights’ and a dual cockpit layout that offers personalized space intuitively optimized for a high-tech user experience. The images hint at innovative features befitting Tucson’s signature boldness and pioneering spirit.

      The all-new Tucson’s world premiere press conference will be streamed online around the world on September 15th*at 9:30 a.m. KST. The livestream, a teaser video and images are available at hyundai.com and Hyundai’s social media channels.

      For its fourth generation, Hyundai took the all-new Tucson to the next level of automotive design, making it the first C-SUV in its class to be available in two different dimensions, while sharing the same name.

      “The mission of ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ is to elevate the emotional qualities of automotive design. We want our customers to feel moved. With the all-new Tucson, we are introducing its ultimate evolution and a definitive statement about Hyundai’s unstoppable forward momentum,” said SangYup Lee, Senior Vice President and Head of Hyundai Global Design Center. “Tucson’s advanced, experimental design is true to its pioneering spirit and raises the game in the industry’s most competitive segment.”

      Hyundai’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design identity, first introduced on the new Elantra, brings an emotional punch to Tucson’s avant-garde ‘Parametric Dynamics’ design theme.

      The ‘Parametric Dynamics’ exterior that makes a strong first impression

      The all-new Tucson’s advanced exterior styling expresses what Hyundai designers call ‘Parametric Dynamics’ with kinetic jewel-like surface details that will have people doing a double take. Parametric Hidden Lights provide a strong first impression. These signature DRLs (daytime running lights) are seamlessly integrated into the jewel-like grille, only revealed when turned on.

      Overall, the new Tucson’s body is bigger and wider than previous generation models, offering a long hood and short overhangs on a stretched wheelbase that give it a slinky coupé-like character. From the side, angular body panels offer yet another interpretation of parametric design. Chiseled surfaces create a striking contrast between sleek silhouette and masculine wedge, suggesting forward motion even when standing still. Taut athletic shapes seamlessly merge into angular wheel arches where alloy wheels provide a powerful and dynamic stance.

      An ‘INTERSPACE’ with an integrated interface

      Getting into the all-new Tucson’s spacious interior, or INTERSPACE, is like entering a neatly organized room where everyday concerns disappear, not unlike the feeling of a modern boutique hotel where your comfort and convenience are the utmost priority. In the new Tucson, space, technology and information intersect harmoniously.

      The evolution of Tucson’s interior layout led to a lower instrument display and removal of the gauge cluster housing for a decluttered surface. Layered, sensuous forms reinforce the feeling of openness. The broad ridge of the dashboard blends seamlessly with the doors, wrapping around front occupants like a deep gorge. The vertically oriented, fully integrated center fascia descends to the console like a mighty waterfall. Twin silver garnish lines streaming from the center fascia to the rear doors harmonize neatly layered premium surface materials in complementary neutral tones.

      Is the Tiguan not a C-SUV available in two wheelbases, depending on region, to meet diverse market needs? Not sure

      This looks interesting. Very curious to see what happens with the Sportage.

      Tiguan and Rogue (although it goes by two different names: X-Trial and Qashqai outside North America).

      And I'd argue Mazda CX-5 and CX-8 is another one (identical until the B-pillar) but CX-8 is only sold in JDM and a few other places.

      I hope it drives itself. Otherwise you are going to crash it trying to turn on the climate control. That console looks like capacitive touch hell. I like the exterior though.

      I really like the exterior. I'm not a fan of the current styling with the DRL slits at the top of the nose with headlights located in the bumper.

      Wouldn't be the first time Hyundai claimed an incorrect "first". Maybe ice4life can email the FTC about this.

      Sure, the 1st and 2nd gen 2 door had short wheelbase but that's not exactly what Hyundai is saying. However, the 3rd gen RAV4 was sold with two different wheelbases depending on market, preceding Tiguan, Rogue, CX-5/8, and Tucson by a decade.

      Hyundai doesn't always the best styling evolution (2019 Elantra front-end and Venue), but the new Sonata and now this are on the right track.

      Ford sold the Explorer in two lengths beginning in 1990 (MY 1991). It probably was not the first SUV to do so.

      I'm pretty sure all the Lotus stuff bolts on. Lot of final drive options too. There were like 4 days I was thinking about an old Camry V6

      Not that I like it, but it looks like Hyundai is getting close to Tesla with that interior. Either way, Tucson is a nice city, can't really say the same about the meh though.
      You can’t take advantage of “record low” gas prices when you have nowhere to drive. And it’s not really more affordable if you don’t have a paycheck to buy it with.

      The second generation Tracker/Vitara also sold in multiple wheelbases, although I can’t recall off the top of my head if it was unibody or BoF.

      Hybrid and PHEV (may not see the PHEV hete, at least not at first).

      Doubt that there will be a full electric as that's what the Ioniq sub-brand is for (thus far, 2 planned CUVs).

      Think it's been a mixed bag, esp. for Hyundai.

      While should be commended for going back to taking risks and making their lineup more distinctive, a lot of times such endeavors don't work out for the best.

      Oddly enough, think the Hyundai model with the best design (inside and out) is one that is no longer available here (the FL Grandeur - formerly known here as the Azera).

      Modern and futuristic looking (making it look distinctive in a sea of mundane sedans) without being overly weird or awkward.

      But something like the Sonata, the catfish grille for the turbo variants ruins what is otherwise a decent design; and the Palisade is just a bit too busy/weird all around.

      The new Elantra has too much going on at its side, but still better than the outgoing FL model which is simply horrendous (the pre-FL was so much better).

      More so than for sheet metal, where Hyundai has stepped up its game is in the designs for its dashes/interiors.

      Why you wouldn’t (buy an Optima SX):

      Because you have your eyes on the Frigidaire Limited Edition Camry that you saw last weekend at the neighborhood Autoplex

      Yeah I wouldn't really call the Rogue and Rogue Sport the same car with different wheelbases. Engines also differ. This is more so the same as the LWB Tiguan in North America and the SWB Tiguan in Europe.

      Also FYI the Rogue Sport is called the Qashqai in Canada...so it's only outside of the US.
