Hyundai has released the first photos of the all-new 2016 Tucson SUV ahead of its debut next month at the 2015 Geneva motor Show. The new Tucson adopts Hyundai’s latest design language and even though it now looks even more like an SUV, Hyundai says that its designers worked hard to “ensure a sleek and agile look.”
On the outside the 2016 Tucson now looks like a scaled down version of the larger Santa Fe and is also more refined and aggressive looking than the current Tucson.
“Design expresses our progressive spirit and passion, and it is transforming our brand. The All-New Tucson has a bold and athletic presence achieved through refined, flowing surfaces, bold proportions, sharp lines and most importantly, our newest generation hexagonal grille – our brand signature,” said Peter Schreyer, President and Chief Design Officer at Hyundai Motor Group.
Inside the 2016 Tucson’s interior gets new soft-touch materials that are higher quality than before. New convenience features offered with the All-New Tucson include heated and ventilated front seats, a smart powered tailgate (which opens at the approach of the key-holder) and Smart Parking Assist System with parallel and bay parking function both increase everyday usability.
