Mr. Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President of the Head of Product Division at Hyundai Motor Group said, "We are thrilled to introduce the all-new Tucson, the latest model in Hyundai's SUV transformation".

It will be sold in Canada and the United States only as a "long-wheelbase" version that is 15 cm. longer than the current Canadian Tucson (and 13 cm. longer than the new version that will be sold in the rest of the world).

Speaking to worldwide media at the global launch of the new Tucson, the possibility of a flagship Tucson N was far from ruled out by HMC global product management boss Lorenz Glaab and head of global design SangYup Lee when questions on the subject were raised a couple of times. The new SUV is to be offered with updated features and a new design.

The new parametric-jewel-pattern grille, which integrates both the headlamps and turn signals, presents a stronger aesthetic right from the front, Hyundai said.

It's safe to say that on the outside, the 2021 Hyundai Tucson looks nothing like its predecessor.

The kinetic design theme carries over to the rear, where the full-width taillamp incorporates half-hidden triangular shapes that are only visible when lit.

Rear cargo capacity is increased by more than 200 litres, to a total of 1,096 litres of usable space behind the rear seats.

Tucson offers both Smartstream 2.5-liter, direct-injected, four-cylinder, gasoline and powerful 1.6-liter, turbo, direct-injected, hybrid or plug-in hybrid powertrains. However, the combined hybrid powertrain delivers an impressive output of 226 BHP and 349 Nm of peak torque. Hybrid and PHEV get Hyundai's first-in-class E-Handling technology to help improve steering response and directional stability when cornering. The auto comes with all-wheel drive with upto 7 driving modes - Eco, Comfort, Smart, Sport, Mud, Sand and Snow.

The parametric grille offers the SUV a distinct front, and you certainly won't mistake the Tucson for anything else, viewed from the front.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Hyundai teased its all-new 2021 Tucson crossover with a couple of darkened photos showing off its unique exterior and interior styling. The SUV will be launched in the USA and other global markets in the first half of 2021.

The fourth generation of the Tucson range, which has been the brand's best-selling range since it was originally launched in 2004, is 20mm longer, 15mm wider and 5mm higher than its predecessor. Bluetooth allows driver and passenger to alternate between their playlists without disconnecting and reconnecting their respective phones. All buttons will be touch-screen, either on the display or on the fascia beneath it, and an enhanced voice recognition system will also activate the controls. However, the automaker has brought some additional features to the upcoming model.

Tucson's new Car-to-home feature allows customers to control smart home appliances from the auto.
