After it made its global debut during Geneva Motor Show, the new Hyundai Tucson makes first US appearance during New York Auto Show. The new compact crossover, known as the ix35 in Europe, is now ready for a new generation of buyers, targeting younger audience with its sporty design.

Tucson Exterior Design

The front view has a hexagonal-shaped grille, a key element of Hyundai’s design signature, enhanced by available high-efficiency LED twin-projector headlights, LED headlight accents and integrated LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs). The wheelbase has been increased by more than an inch and for the first time, 19-inch alloy wheels will be offered, with a dynamic asymmetrical spoke design, surrounded by forward-raking wheel arch design. The taillights also utilize LED technology.

The new Tucson offers eight appealing exterior colors and three interior color environments. Six of these exterior colors are all-new, including Chromium Silver, Coliseum Gray, Ruby Wine, Mojave Sand, Sedona Sunset and Caribbean Blue. Winter White and Ash Black fill out the diverse eight-color offering.
