More 2022 Hyundai Tucson Design Details Visible in Teaser Photos
- Hyundai has released teaser photos of the upcoming 2022 Tucson, revealing a futuristic design largely shared with the Vision T concept.
- Hyundai said that the new Tucson will have a bigger and wider body than the outgoing model, but didn’t share any other specifics.
- The 2022 Tucson is set to be revealed on Monday, September 14, at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Remember the Hyundai Vision T? At the 2019 Los Angeles auto show, the automaker showed this concept for a compact crossover that we thought previewed the 2022 Tucson. These teaser photos from Hyundai show that the production Tucson, set to be revealed September 14, won’t be too far off from the Vision T.
Two exterior photos give us a good look at what the 2022 Tucson will look like. The grille shares the angular pattern seen on the Vision T, with the headlights integrated into the design; Hyundai calls these Parametric Hidden Lights. The rear shot of the car shows the taillight stretching the span of the vehicle as a thin line just below the rear window. The vertical portions of the taillights deviate from the Vision T, as they are simple, narrow bars.
Hyundai released just one photo of the interior, but the design is clearly visible. The infotainment screen unit protrudes slightly, with buttons that are flush with its surface. Air vents similar to those in a Tesla Model 3 appear to run the width of the dashboard.
Hyundai has also released several details about its forthcoming compact SUV. Worldwide, the Tucson will be available in both a long- and short-wheelbase models, but we expect to get only the longer version in the U.S. market. While Hyundai holds back from giving any concrete dimensions, the automaker does say that 2022 Tucson’s body will be bigger and wider than the outgoing model.
