2021 Hyundai Tucson debuts with fierce new styling

2021 Hyundai Tucson debuts with fierce new styling

The Hyundai Tucson has been a best-seller for the Korean company since it debuted in 2005 as an inoffensive, slightly-smaller compact crossover that was priced to compete with Japanese compact cars at the time. So it’s surprising to see Hyundai take such a massive design risk with the all-new 2021 Tucson that has just been revealed.

2019 Hyundai Tucson ditches turbo option

Hyundai unveiled the heavily revamped 2019 Hyundai Tucson crossover at the 2018 New York Auto Show. The exterior more looks like the larger Santa Fe and the interior is completely revamped.

First drive: 2016 Hyundai Tucson in the Canary Islands, Spain

We’re guessing this will probably be our most popular story for August. Did you know that the Hyundai Tucson is the highest-selling crossover in its segment in several countries, including the UAE? And to be honest, the outgoing version of the Tucson wasn’t particularly good to begin with, managing to outsell all its rivals simply by being cheap. But this new one is completely different from the ground up. And we went all the way to the Canary Islands to find that out.

First drive: 2013 Hyundai Tucson 2.4 in the UAE


This one has been a long time coming, even before the Lamborghini that I test-drove recently. It wasn’t bias; it is just that this cheap crossover is actually quite popular regardless of our review, so much that you might end up counting at least as many of this vehicle as any popular Japanese crossovers on the road. And ‘this’ crossover, which we sourced from a close friend, is none other than the 2013 Hyundai Tucson 2.4, aka “Tuck-Sun”, as it is known to most people, including some of the local dealer’s sales staff.

U.S. IIHS study says low-speed car-SUV crashes expensive

U.S. IIHS study says low-speed car-SUV crashes expensive


Say what you want about the Americans, but they are a serious bunch when it comes to safety. The U.S. government’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration — NHTSA — is the one that mandates airbags and tyre-pressure monitors in all new cars, subdued automakers into making their roof strength higher while inadvertently making outward visibility worse due to thicker pillars, and is set to force rear-view cameras on all new cars by 2014 thereby making car prices higher.

Video of the week: Britney’s Hyundai Tucson


As a purveyor of quick-cut videos with cheesy music myself, here is an official video of the all-new 2010 Hyundai Tucson ix35, with background music featuring one of Britney Spears’ catchy new songs that I don’t know the name of. What caught me was the ridiculous ‘SUV’ tag-line at the end.
