The teaser photos show that the new Hyundai Tucson's DRL is going to be directly integrated with the trapezoidal elements of the grille.

The Tucson's identity is emphasized through the "parametric dynamics" with kinetic jewel surface details, it explained. The carmaker will unveil the latest model of Tucson, a compact SUV, through its online showroom service on September 15. The front grille and how the half-mirror type DRLs are incorporated with it is very striking. The auto gets new front fascia that has half-mirror type daytime running lights that are integrated into the parametric grille. All in, the new Tucson has ditched the current-gen model's rounded, bulky appearance for a design that's decidedly more aggressive and in-your-face.

Although the new version will be available in both short- and long-wheelbase variants, only the stretched model will be sold in the United States on par with the American's taste for larger vehicles. Tucson offers best-in-class digital experiences that support diverse customer needs including connectivity. There's a hoodless digital instrument cluster and a flat, button-less centre fascia. Real-time air pollution levels are displayed on the Dual Automatic Temperature Control screen. The navigation system offers split-screen functionality that enables multi-tasking capabilities, coupled with enhanced voice recognition.

Hyundai has applied a new design concept to the upgraded model of the sixth-generation Grandeur that was launched in 2016, the new Sonata sedan launched previous year, the all-new Avante compact launched in April and the all-electric concept Prophecy. The other features included ambient lighting, Bose Premium sound system. smart air filter and purifier.
