2016 Hyundai Tucson comes to Geneva with long-awaited redesign

As one of the oldest vehicles in Hyundai’s lineup, it was only a matter of time before the compact Tucson was given a redesign. Now, at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, we’re getting a first-person look at the next-generation model as it prepares to do battle in an increasingly important market.

While the last-generation Tucson was an ambassador of Hyundai’s early “fluidic sculpture” design language, this new model shares the sharper, more aggressive lines of last year’s Intrado Concept. A hexagonal grille is front and center, while the large headlights bleed into the front fenders. As we covered in our original post, the broad, flat hood is reminiscent of the Santa Fe, while the tail looks to the Genesis for its taillight design.

Ample attention has also been paid to the cabin, although admittedly, the last Tucson’s interior aged rather well. The Geneva show car features handsome red leather seats that contrast nicely with the black dash and silver accents. The cabin layout itself, meanwhile, isn’t unlike what’s found on the new Sonata; it’s clean, logical and easy to figure out.
