The Tucson’s redone interior looks significantly more upscale, with a clean dashboard that’s reminiscent of that in the Hyundai Genesis luxury sedan. Newly available features abound, including ventilated front seats, a power tailgate, heated rear seats, and smartphone app integration for services like Pandora and Yelp. Hyundai is also upping the Tucson’s active-safety game, as the new crossover offers blind-spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, and lane-change assist. A backup camera is standard on all models.
After its official debut at the New York auto show, the 2016 Hyundai Tucson will reach Hyundai dealers starting in July 2015. Until then, stay tuned for pricing and official fuel economy data for the redesigned crossover.
