Hyundai has unveiled the first images of the next-generation Tucson SUV.
The carmaker says that the model is larger than its predecessor, and features the carmaker’s “Sensuous Sportiness” design identity.
The unique lighting design of the new Hyundai Tucson’s front and rear express what Hyundai designers refer to as Parametric Dynamics. Parametric Dynamics uses “lines, faces, angles and shapes to create kinetic jewel-like surface details through digital data…”
The Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) are “hidden” within the jewel-like grille, and are only revealed once they are switched on.
A LARGER SUV
The new Hyundai Tucson is bigger and wider than previous generation models. It has a long bonnet, short overhands and a stretched wheelbase, which Hyundai says gives it a “slinky coupé-like character.”
The chiselled surfaces aim to create a contrast between a sleek silhouette and masculine wedge, suggesting forward motion even when standing still.
Hyundai refers to the Tucson’s interior as an “Interspace” and describes it as like “entering a neatly organised room where everyday concerns disappear.”
The image shows a new digital instrument panel located lower than the previous gauge cluster. The broad ridge of the dashboard blends seamlessly with the doors, wrapping around front occupants like a deep gorge.
Meanwhile, the vertically oriented forms of the integrated centre fascia are inspired by waterfalls. The new dual cockpit layout is intuitively optimised for a high-tech user experience.
