The new-gen Hyundai Tucson is built on the popular Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language with several of Hyundai's latest styling cues seen in its latest offerings. Up front, the car features the larger hexagonal grille with Chrome slats flanked by sharp projector headlamps. The beefy bumper is well-sculpted and houses a pair of stylish horizontal LED fog lamps and LED daytime running lights below them similar to what we have seen in the new Elantra.
The side and the rear profile of the new Hyundai Tucson largely resemble the Santa Fe, which is a good thing in our books. The SUV comes with sporty alloy wheels (17-inch for the manual trim and 18-inch for automatic), ORVMs with integrated turn signal lights, roof rails and smooth character lines running along the sides. It also comes with very prominent underbody plastic cladding and silver side skirts. At the rear, you have sharp wraparound LED tail lamps, rear windshield wiper, large well-sculpted tailgate with the company logo at the centre, and a plastic cladded rear bumper with dual chrome-tipped exhaust pipes.
