The roof edge is highlighted by a chrome line that runs into the C-pillars, and the doors demonstrate the corporate and faceted Parametric Dynamics style that was previously used for the Elantra. The SUV is shod in 19-inch wheels with a complex asymmetric design.

United by a thin LED strip, the headlights echo the shape of the radiator grille pattern. There is a visor above the rear door, as that of the current model. There is also an antenna-fin and rails on the roof.

Hyundai has unveiled the new interior not in pictures but in design sketches. However, photospies have already managed to capture the interior of the ‘real’ SUV. The architecture and content have completely changed: a digital dashboard has appeared, and a center console has an unusual shape with a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen tablet. Physical controls are now minimal.

It was reported that the new Tucson would surpass the dimensions of the third-generation SUV and would also come in two versions with different wheelbase lengths. The larger version will be available in China, Korea, and the United States; Europe and Central Asia will get the «short-base» Tucson.
