updates Hyundai Tucson tested in Europe and it doesn’t look like it will have a radical refactoring.
While Elantra/car i30 And sonata Hyundai has rolled out major styling changes to the front and rear of both sedans, but the revised Tucson looks like it will keep the same overall design as today’s car, at least up front. .
Despite the dense camouflage, we can see the updated Tucson still has a split headlight treatment, with the main and high beams hidden in the housing towards the outer edge of the front bumper.
Again, there appears to be a grille that covers the crossover’s steering lights. The grille insert looks new and reminds us of the Santa Cruz ute available in North America.
We expect detailed changes to the front bumper.
There are even more panels on the back of this prototype, so we can’t see what changes Hyundai is planning for the back of the Tuscon.
The only parts that we can recognize are the familiar red stripe across the entire width of the car and reverse lights integrated in the lower part of the bumper.
Unfortunately, our spy photography agency was unable to capture a picture of the updated Tucson’s interior, so we don’t know if the Korean automaker is planning stronger overhaul to the crossover’s dashboard and cabin or not.
The prototype is a short wheelbase model, likely to be produced at the company’s plant in Czechia. The SWB variant is sold primarily in Europe and there’s a small chance it will get a different mid-life update than the long-wheelbase version for Australia and much of the world.
With a wheelbase of 2755mm, the LWB model has an extra 75mm between the front and rear axles. The partially lengthened wheelbase helps the LWB variant add 130mm to the overall length to about 4630mm.
