Bold and athletic exterior creates unique SUV appearance

The All-New Tucson design concept incorporates a sleek, urban style combined with the strong ruggedness typical of an SUV. Peter Schreyer, President and Chief Design Officer at Hyundai Motor Group, explains how Hyundai designers achieved the dynamic proportions:

Design expresses our progressive spirit and passion, and it is transforming our brand. The All-New Tucson has a distinctive and athletic presence achieved through refined, flowing surfaces, bold proportions, sharp lines and most importantly, our newest generation hexagonal grille - our brand signature.


The front of the All-New Tucson is dominated by the hexagonal grille, which connects with the LED headlamps to create a distinctive identity. A wing-shaped horizontal bar at the front bumper, which incorporates the LED daytime running lights, gives the car a unique style and provides a visual reference for the car’s wide track.

By moving the A-pillar back it becomes visually disconnected from the long bonnet, accentuating the sleek profile. The directional shape of the wheel arches contributes to the car’s agile and dynamic appearance, even at standstill. The expressive ‘Z’ character-lines above the rear wheel arches emphasise the powerful stance, while the kick-up belt moulding converges with the falling roof line to complete the sculptural side profile.

At the rear, the All-New Tucson’s personality is reinforced by strong horizontal lines flowing from the wheel arches. The combination lamps and reflectors are stretched to the body edges to further underline the bold proportions, with the rear skid plate and twin exhaust adding a sporty touch.

Refined interior combines elegance with ergonomics for a sensuous experience

The Hyundai interior design team’s objective was to ensure that, when potential buyers first enter the car, they will be instinctively impressed by the cabin’s space and the attention paid to the smallest details.

Inside, new soft-touch, high-quality materials are introduced across the cabin surfaces, creating a refined cabin ambience. The new horizontal layout of the centre console conveys the car’s elegance while increasing the feeling of roominess. The interior has undergone extensive ergonomic testing to ensure ease of use and a pleasant and sensuous experience.

Sophisticated exterior and interior colour palette

The All-New Tucson is offered with a distinguished range of 10 exterior colours, comprising one solid (Polar White), three metallic (Platinum Silver, Ara Blue, White Sand) and six pearl colours (Ash Blue, Moon Rock, Ultimate Red, Thunder Grey, Ruby Wine, Phantom Black,).

Buyers have a choice of three sophisticated interior colours: Oceanids Black, Chai Beige and Red Wine. The Oceanids Black interior is available with cloth or high quality black leather upholstery. The elegant Chai Beige interior comes in a two-tone layout with the lower dashboard in beige matching the cloth or leather upholstery. Adding further elegance to the interior is the exclusive Red Wine leather.
