It looks like the Korean carmaker is done with the expansion of the SUV lineup. Now it’s turning for the company’s second best-selling model to get some attention. Of course, we are talking about the 2021 Hyundai Tucson, which is about to get a complete redesign in the next year.

The testing model has been driving around for some time. It still wears a complete camouflage, which indicates some pretty serious styling changes. Of course, we count on novelties in other aspects as well, in terms of the interior design, new powertrain options, etc.

Pros:

  • Completely redesigned
  • Long list of standard tech features
  • Attractive price
  • Long warranty

Cons:

  • Extremely tough competition
  • Cargo area probably won’t be much bigger

At this point, the styling of the 2021 Hyundai Tucson is by far the most intriguing thing about this redesign. The testing model is completely covered, so it’s all about speculation. Judging on the spy photos, we probably won’t see bigger changes in terms of the shape, though some slight size increase is possible.

On the other side, the new styling will follow the brand’s latest design language. This means a lot of inspiration taken from the new Santa Fe. Moreover, several reports also suggest a couple of distinctive details that will be added to the front end of the popular crossover.

Interior

This is the most competitive segment in the automotive industry today, led by huge names like Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and VW Tiguan. Therefore, the Korean carmaker will have to put a lot of attention to interior design, which plays a huge role in the modern automotive market.

So, we count on a completely new layout and hope that the materials’ quality will improve, though we have to say that the current model already looks decent after the recent update. Besides new aesthetics and materials, we also count on improved functionality, so the new 2021 Hyundai Tucson should offer a little bit more cargo space and similar things.

Engines

We count on at least two engine options in the new 2021 Hyundai Tucson. Most likely, base models will feature a familiar 2.4-liter four-cylinder unit, which is good for about 185 horsepower.

That’s a quite decent amount of power for daily driving, but most rivals also offer more powerful options. So, we presume that Hyundai is going to do the same. The first engine that comes to our minds is a new 2.0-liter turbo-four, which is good for about 235 horsepower. It seems like a perfect fit for a crossover of this size.

2021 Hyundai Tucson Release Date and Price

According to the latest reports, the new 2021 Hyundai Tucson could hit the market next summer. When it comes to the price, we don’t expect to see significant changes compared to the current model, which starts at around $23,500.
