With its bold, triangular light signatures, the Tucson makes a strong first impression. 841"}’ section="annotation">Hyundai has just given us our first peek at the 2021 Tucson along with a few new details about the upcoming SUV.
Built around what Hyundai calls its "Interspace" design theme, the Tucson’s cabin emphasizes spaciousness with its wrap-around dashboard that is said to evoke a "futuristic boutique hotel".
This may be the same technology used on the new Hyundai Sonata — integrating lighting elements into the vehicle’s chrome brightwork, only revealing the SUV’s triangular light signature when illuminated — but I can’t be sure until we see the SUV with the lights deactivated.
Of course, I expected that the new Tucson would draw heavy inspiration from the Vision T concept, which we first saw at the 2019 LA Auto Show, but I’m truly surprised to see the concept’s futuristic illumination make the seemingly impossible leap to production.
The all-new 2021 Hyundai Tucson will make its world premiere via an online live stream on September 14th at 5:30 pm PT.
Peer deeply into the shadowed images and you’ll also notice that the Tucson floats its oval-shaped H badge on the rear glass, rather than the more conventional sheet metal placement.
Central in the cabin is a large 10. 25-inch touchscreen navigation system, which appears much larger due to its integration into the vertical, glossy black "waterfall" center stack.
