Hyundai Tucson Spied in South Korea

Hyundai Tucson Spied Facelift (2)

Displayed at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the last generation of South Korean carmaker mid-size SUV, the Hyundai Tucson, has enjoyed an excellent level of sales locally and overseas, from US to Europe.

At this time, we have caught, thanks to our friend SHM Studio the 2018 Hyundai Tucson facelift on a parking lot in South Korea with a high level of camouflage. What we can expect for this refreshed SUV?

Following Hyundai latest design identity for SUV’s, used for the first time on the Hyundai Kona (next-generation Santa Fe will follow) it is very probably that Hyundai uses this facelift to include some of this idea on the Tucson, specially in the front-end, with separated headlights, LED Daytime Running Lights, etc…

Improved interior, with the latest safety & technology systems will apply on this facelift. Full LED headlights, smart cruise control & autonomous emergency brake, new tablet-type touchscreen, alloy wheels, colours, etc…

An updated powertrain will follow exterior & interior features. For example, in Europe Hyundai needs to replace the old 1.6 GDi naturally aspirated engine, for the new 1.4 Turbo GDi engine (140hp). We don’t expect hybrid variants for now, but we can expect a N version as has been confirmed.
