10 November 2020 AutoMarket, Tips & Advice

With the new year on the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about upgrading your wheels. There are lots of hot new releases and upgrades scheduled for 2021, so it’s a good year to be in the market. One car that we’re especially excited about is the highly-anticipated Hyundai Tucson 2021. Cutting-edge technology. Fully loaded features. Comfortable interior. Engine efficiency. High-grade performance. You name it, the Tucson’s got it. Here’s what to expect.

Avant-garde design

Hyundais are known for their stylish design which has always attracted spectators to the showroom.  The Tucson is no exception. The original model has gotten a stark, dramatic makeover, with bold geometric slashes and bulges along its body that are sure to divide opinions. Described by the manufacturer as “confident” and “muscular” with an “imposing” look, this design certainly makes a statement. The 2021 Tucson’s experimental style is a testament to Hyundai’s innovative spirit, and we predict it won’t be long until other carmakers follow suit.

Panoramic glass sunroof

Arguably the pièce de résistance of the upcoming Tucson is its panoramic glass sunroof that can be opened and shut in seconds at the touch of a button. This feature adds lifestyle appeal and is ideal for long, balmy summer drives. You can’t beat the feeling of fresh, invigorating air and sunshine on the open road. It also gives the illusion of more space, and allows you to take in your surroundings in an exhilarating new way.

Safety features

Driver safety remains a priority at Hyundai, who invest heavily in technology to keep them out of harm’s way. The 2021 Tucson is equipped with the SmartSense safety suite, which alerts you to avoid any imminent hazards or obstructions along your path. The Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) signals a red flag when your visibility is compromised. This model also has Driver Attention Warning (DAW) which can keep track of your attention and behaviours, and will beep if you start to go astray.

Connectivity and technology

The new-and-improved Tucson comes complete with a state-of-the-art infotainment system. Enjoy a fully customisable digital experience with its 26 inch, ultra-sophisticated touchscreen that elegantly hovers over the dashboard. It comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and even lets you connect two phones at a time to seamlessly switch between devices without the hassle of disconnecting and reconnecting. The Tucson even has a high-speed wireless charging pad on the centre console. The premium Infinity sound system creates a listening experience like no other. All navigation, entertainment, heat and air conditioning options are controlled by touch – no antiquated knobs or buttons in sight. The Tucson also has voice control if you’d prefer to give commands this way. For example, “warm up the car” activates the heated steering wheel, seats, as well as the interior heater.

Australian suspension tuning

Australia’s diverse, isolated roads impose unique demands, which is why Hyundai Australia has integrated a localised suspension tuning particularly for this market. This equips the 2021 Tucson to tackle our specific road conditions with ease and stability. These nuances in design and manufacturing were developed by Hyundai through extensive test driving that spanned across thousands of kilometres of Australian roads. To get an authentic sense of the country, this driving was done on varied road surfaces including country roads, freeways, and even hard-to-reach mountain passes. The Australian Tucson’s suspension tuning makes for a dynamic drive and improved safety, and makes this model a contender among many of the country’s most loved SUVs.
