Hyundai recently unveiled the Tucson facelift at the 2018 New York International Auto Show. The carmaker has updated the SUV with a tweaked exterior, redesigned interior and new engine options. After its global debut in New York, the car will go up on sale in Europe this summer. Take a look at the re-engineered vehicle which takes luxury and comfort to the next level.
Exterior styling updates include a hexagonal 'cascading grille' with four chrome slats. These are flanked by full LED headlights with new integrated L-shaped LED DRLs.
The front bumper now features a new skid plate and revised fog lamp pods. Furthermore, the vehicle now rides on new 18-inch alloy wheels with a striking new design pattern.
At the back, the Tucson sports a new bumper and redesigned tail lamps. The reflectors are now positioned closer to the tail lamp clusters and have got slimmer.
The changes in the cabin include a redesigned dual-tone dashboard. The layout is still the same with a three-spoke, multi-functional steering wheel carried over from the previous model.
However, the major update is in the form of an 8.0-inch floating touchscreen infotainment system. It supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity as well as 3D maps.
Globally, the new Tucson gets a choice of petrol and diesel engine options. The specification differs according to the market with the choice of automatic/manual variants and front- or four-wheel drive.
