Hyundai Tucson 2021: New Look & New Tech

The Hyundai Tucson 2021 is officially released shortly. We are used to seeing long generations of vehicles that, as a general rule, last 7 or 8 years in time.

However, this is not going to be Hyundai’s modus operandi, at least with the Tucson: its third generation saw the light in 2015, but next year the fourth will arrive, which will give rise to the Hyundai Tucson 2021. The SUV has already been hunted repeatedly and this is all you know about him so far.

Until now it has only been seen camouflaged to various degrees, offering in recent weeks somewhat less covered images that reveal certain features. On the front, the grille has a structure of triangular pieces and is finished in matt black, it gives the impression that the optical groups are quite thin and in the central area of ​​the bumper there is a large air intake.

In the side view, you can see a slightly ascending waistline, a roof with a smooth drop that is topped by a spoiler and some wheel arches with a fairly straightforward design. The rear is the least you can talk about because the drivers are barely noticeable, quite compact.

Of this aspect there is no official information, but, logically, a revised range of engines is presented that, yes, will keep in its offer both gasoline and diesel options that will go from 115 to 200 HP. To this, it seems almost certain that a variant (or several) with a gasoline engine and soft hybridization technology will be added. Buyers will be able to choose between the front-wheel-drive for access engines and 4×4 for the more powerful versions.

It is also expected that a plug-in hybrid mechanic will appear throughout the generation and even a Tucson N has been rumored, a dynamic cut variant that would join the sports family of the brand, being able to develop up to 340 CV of power and being able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in less than six seconds.

The Hyundai Tucson 2021 is expected to be unveiled at a point between the impending Los Angeles Motor Show 2021 (according to the most optimistic ones) and half of next year, with the model hitting dealerships in late 2020 or early 2021.

The Hyundai Tucson is in a situation that is a double-edged sword: on the one hand, the segment of compact SUVs enjoys an enviable state of health, but, on the other, that makes the competition fierce. The list of rivals he has to face is quite large, from a best-seller like the Nissan Qashqai to the Honda CR-V or the Toyota RAV4, and that’s without counting that he even has an enemy at home, in the Hyundai Group, Kia Sportage.
