The unveiling highlighted the new C-SUV's dynamic jewel-like exterior and high-tech "INTERSPACE" that evokes a futuristic boutique hotel.

The all-new (*14*) 2021 Hyundai Tucson will make its world premiere via an online live stream on September 14 at 5:30 p.m. PT. The livestream, a teaser video and images are available at hyundai.com and Hyundai's social media channels. In the global market, it will be offered in both short and long wheelbase options. The overall grille and headlight shape nearly looks like a much more modern rendition of the 2012 Ford Edge, but with the lighting masked by the grille.
The Tucson is now the fourth-best seller in the medium SUV category and only a handful of sales behind the Nissan X-Trail, which itself trails the Toyota RAV4 and Mazda CX-5, but Hyundai's product planning manager Andrew Tuatahi has previously expressed confidence the next Tucson will move the game forward for the company. The grille shares the angular pattern seen on the Vision T, with the headlights integrated into the design; Hyundai calls these Parametric Hidden Lights. Hyundai says the wheelbase will be longer, and the vehicle itself will be larger than the outgoing Tucson. The jewel-like grille looks quite attractive while the signature DRL units seamlessly flown in from either side. The fourth-generation Tucson's body is bigger and wider compared to previous generation models. Chiseled surfaces produce a remarkable contrast between the masculine wedge and the sleek silhouette.More news: Serbia, Kosovo announce closer economic ties at White House event
Chrome DLO molding follows the arch of Tucson's graceful roofline, drawing the eye to the steep rake of the aerodynamic rear hatch where aggressively angled taillamps reinforce the feeling of powerful momentum. Parametric Hidden Lights provide a strong first impression. Hyundai also says that technology and information are to intersect harmoniously, but all I'm seeing is a big slab of screen in the middle. Hyundai removed the gauge cluster housing and added a lower instrument display to reduce clutter, then blended the dash into the door panels and added a waterfall-like center console for a dramatic effect.
