The new fourth-generation Hyundai Tucson 2021 is officially unveiled. Previously, there were a lot of versions about what the new product will be. It was reliably known that the Hyundai Tucson 2021 will be completely new and in no way similar to other models of the company. Now the novelty is fully disclosed, both externally and internally. The basis for the Hyundai Tucson 2021 was the previously presented Vision T concept, which was finalized only in certain details. The interior of the Hyundai Tucson 2021 will largely depend on the configuration (basic or top-end). According to the manufacturer, under the hood of the new Hyundai Tucson, there may be a gasoline, diesel, or hybrid engine.
Price and configuration Hyundai Tucson 2021-2022
Since the car Hyundai Tucson 2021 is only officially presented, it is too early to talk about a specific cost or trim level. Nevertheless, according to the manufacturer, in South Korea, the start of sales is expected at the end of September 2020.
In the home market, the new Hyundai Tucson 2021 will cost $ 20,600. How much the top-end configuration of the crossover will cost has not yet been announced. It is known that there will be differences between the basic and top-end options, in particular the interior, equipment, and exterior details.
Exterior Hyundai Tucson 2021-2022
The design of the new Hyundai Tucson 2021 really turned out to be futuristic and not quite as familiar as for most cars. The front and rear of the car are the most eye-catching. In front, the Hyundai Tucson 2021 crossover received an unusual radiator grill, made in a V-shape, with curly inserts. On the side of the radiator grille, LED optics were hidden, made to fit the shape of the inserts, and generally like a boomerang.
If you look at the car during the day, it is almost impossible to distinguish the optics from the main part of the grille. Another detail that was not disclosed until the last moment is the company’s logo. According to various sources, the manufacturer wanted to install a new emblem on the new Hyundai Tucson 2021. In fact, the emblem was left the same, without modifications and minor changes.
The austerity of the front end is emphasized by the bumper. The central part was decorated with an additional radiator grill, with a classic mesh insert. Additional optics were placed on the sides, it also serves as a high beam and partly as fog lights. The last two front-end parts of the Hyundai Tucson 2021 are the hood and windshield. The hood of the crossover has received several bends, the central part is pressed down, in the same way as the side ones, and the middle part of the hood is slightly raised. As for the windshield, according to the manufacturer, starting from the basic configuration, it comes with full heating and light tint.
From the side, the Hyundai Tucson 2021 crossover looks no less modern. As many have already noted, it even somewhat resembles the latest generation Toyota RAV4. Rough wheel arches, plastic protection along the perimeter of the lower part, and pronounced lines along the body.
As conceived by the designers, the front and rear fenders received a convex, sharp shape, which makes them stand out from the side of the main body. On the front doors, the bulge intersects with a sharp line that extends to the hind feet. Plus, the door handles remain classic, not hidden, and without unnecessary sensors. Another plus is that the designers of the Hyundai Tucson 2021 left the side mirrors in the corner of the glass, thereby adding severity to the crossover. The set of mirrors includes an electric adjustment drive, automatic folding, LED turn signal repeaters, and memory.
Not the last role in the strict style of the body was played by the coloring of the Hyundai Tucson 2021. The buyer was offered a choice of 9 shades, each combined with a certain shade of the roof:
- silver (rich black roof);
- gray (black roof);
- blue-green (black roof);
- black (rich black roof);
- white (black roof);
- red (black roof);
- rose-red (black roof);
- bronze (black roof);
- deep black (black roof).
According to the manufacturer, this is just the beginning, in the future, the roof of the new Hyundai Tucson can be painted in red, white, silver, brown, or blue. It is possible that other shades of the roof will appear over time. As for the basis of the crossover, there are differences, according to the information in the basic version of the Hyundai Tucson there will be 17 “steel or light-alloy wheels. Ascending configurations will offer 18” or 19 “light-alloy wheels.
Consider the new 2021 Hyundai Tucson from the back. Unlike the 3rd generation, the new product has changed beyond recognition. The feet stand out the most, with a full-width horizontal LED line. The location of the Hyundai Tucson 2021 emblem turned out to be unusual, in the new crossover it was located at the place of the wiper attachment, but the wiper itself was hidden under a massive spoiler in the upper part.
The end part of the trunk lid is not particularly surprising, the model badge and the recess for the license plates. The rear part of the novelty is emphasized by a modern bumper, with a raised insert, rear foglights on the sides, and a diffuser in the center. One point is the absence of a notch for the exhaust system in the lower part of the bumper. Most likely it was hidden behind the bumper so as not to spoil the overall look of the crossover.
The final exterior detail of the new 2021 Hyundai Tucson is the roof. Like discs, depending on the configuration, there can be a completely solid roof, with a sunroof or a panoramic roof. Roof rails have been added to the sides of the roof for attaching an additional rack, and the rear is decorated with a small antenna in the form of a shark fin. As already mentioned, the roof can be painted not only in body color but also in other shades. The first modifications will receive dark options, but the subsequent release may be offered with bright shades of the roof.
Generally speaking, about the new Hyundai Tucson 2021, the 4th generation is significantly different from its predecessors and is made in a futuristic style. Most striking is the radiator grille, which was borrowed from the Sonatas. It seems that the body has become smaller, but in fact, the wheelbase has grown, thereby adding free space in the cabin.
Interior Hyundai Tucson 2021
Following the exterior, the interior of Hyundai Tucson 2021 turned out to be very much redrawn. The front panel is not completely familiar, but stylishly. Depending on the configuration, its filling will also change. In the top-end configuration, which was presented for the premiere, the central part of the console looks rich and without mechanical buttons. The very top was taken under a couple of air ducts, a little lower, a 10.25 “color display with support for Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The whole set ends with a 3-zone climate control panel, with touch buttons and a small touch panel for controlling the audio system.
The basic configuration will look a little poorer, they will install an 8 “display, the climate control touch panel will be replaced by mechanical control, similarly, mechanical buttons will receive an audio system panel. Completing the center console is a small notch, with a USB port for charging, audio input, and wireless charging for gadgets.
No less interesting is the central tunnel of the Hyundai Tucson 2021, between the front seats. At the very beginning there is a control panel for security and comfort systems, then a paddle for shifting gears (in the case of a manual transmission, a gearshift lever will be installed), an electromechanical parking brake button, and a pair of cup holders. The central tunnel ends with a massive armrest and a pair of air ducts with a control panel for second-row passengers. The main disadvantage is the black glossy cover, on which fingerprints remain almost immediately, and eventually, micro-scratches will appear.
Now about the interior of Hyundai Tucson 2021, regardless of the configuration, it will be designed for only 5 seats. Although earlier it was said about the possible appearance of a 7-seater modification. Also, the interior trim depends on the configuration, it can be both fabric and artificial leather. In terms of color, the choice is small, the buyer was offered:
- the black;
- black with a pattern;
In addition to the material and colors, the buyer of the Hyundai Tucson 2021 is offered to choose the shade of the inserts along the perimeter of the interior, as well as minor comfort functions (heated cup holders, trimming small decorative elements, etc.).
As already mentioned, the interior of the new Hyundai Tucson 2021 is designed for 5 seats according to the 2 + 3 formula. The front seats, starting with the basic modification, received an electric adjustment, a high backrest, and massive lateral support. The second row of seats can freely accommodate three passengers, while there will be plenty of free space for everyone. On a pleasant note, it is worth noting the heating and air cooling of the seats of the first row, and the second row will receive only heating. Additionally, LED lighting is installed along the perimeter of the interior, which looks very harmonious with the new futuristic interior.
The last and no less important detail of the Hyundai Tucson 2021 interior is the driver’s seat. If the steering wheel is borrowed from the Hyundai Sonata and looks modern, then the dashboard is not quite standard. According to available information, the basic configuration will be analog-digital tidy, with a large color display of the onboard computer.
Top modifications will receive a fully digital dashboard, based on a 10.25 “color display, made in the form of a tablet, which is not very convenient for perception. The driver is offered several options for the arrangement of instruments, as well as information output at will. The steering wheel of the new Hyundai Tucson comfortable in its own way, heating is installed along the contour, the gearshift paddles are behind the wheel, and the function buttons are on the two upper spokes. Looking at the exterior of the crossover, one gets the impression that the interior is not practical, but in fact, the opposite is true. panel and without unnecessary details, for which you would have to overpay.
Safety and comfort systems
A modern car has modern technologies, this is exactly what happened in Hyundai Tucson 2021. The list of safety and comfort systems of the new crossover is large and as the date of the start of sales approaches, the manufacturer will open up more and more new opportunities. While it is reliably known about such a list:
