The redesigned fourth-generation compact Tucson SUV promises more creature comforts, power, room, and safety features than the mediocre model it replaces.
The base Tucson uses a 187-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder teamed with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The hybrid powertrain is based around a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine, and it puts out a combined 227 hp.
A 261-hp plug-in hybrid and N Line versions will also be available.
The minimalist interior is dominated by a digital dash and screens that fill the center stack, including where climate control buttons usually reside.
The passenger side vents are concealed.
A similar concept is applied to the exterior, with daytime running lights hidden in the grille design.
Standard active safety features include FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, driver monitoring, automatic high beams, and rear seat monitor.
Adaptive cruise control, BSW, RCTW, and remote parking are optional.
