Hyundai Tucson Spied Ahead New York Debut

Displayed for the first time 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 the 2018 Hyundai Tucson facelift on the highway with the final design, while its set to debut at New York Autoshow in a few days. 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, a 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 that has been confirmed.
