In contrast to the new Hyundai Kona, the Tucson does not use split headlights. The Koreans also adapt the front apron and raise the front bumper a little. In addition, the underrun protection has been optically adjusted, as has the rear apron and rear lamp layout.

When it comes to the interior, Hyundai's European chief designer Thomas Bürkle thanks the journalists at the Tucson presentation - after all, they would have criticized the too cheap-looking interior materials of the previous model . This helped him to get hold of a higher interior design budget for the facelift model at the head office in Korea: “We're fighting for every penny.” The fight was worth it: The surfaces now look high-quality and, thanks to back foaming, also feel good at. The screen integrated in the dashboard is history. Instead, the almost free-standing screen from the Kona shows up with its controls on the sides. The air vents are installed vertically underneath. The three-spoke steering wheel remains the same in design, the cockpit housing protrudes a little more from the dashboard.

High-quality surfaces and a screen offset upwards: the interior of the Tucson fits.

The seats may look a bit more lateral support than they really offer, but they are comfortable and suitable for long-distance travel. The best: The Tucson offers a lot of space at the front and tall adults also feel comfortable at the back.

Up to 201 km /h with a 2.0-liter diesel mild hybrid: the facelift version of the new Hyundai Tucson.

The mild hybrid is making good progress, after 9.5 seconds 100 km /h is reached and a maximum of 201 km /h in it - but why does Hyundai support the already powerful diesel with electricity and not a low-torque gasoline engine? 'In Germany, SUVs are ordered with diesel and the new technology should get as many customers as possible,' says Winkler. In terms of production, it is also advantageous if the volume model receives the additional technology first. The 48-volt mild hybrid module can be easily coupled with all other engines, including gasoline, which is gradually happening at Hyundai.

The new Hyundai Tuscon will be available in Germany from July 2018 . Prices start at 22,970 euros for the 1.6 GDI with six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive in the Pure version and go up to 43,750 euros for the mild hybrid 2.0 CRDi with all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic in the Premium version.
