2017 Hyundai Tucson review
The exterior of the new 2017 Hyundai Tucson has got many changes as the size and shape of the vehicle has been remodeled to make room for enough of the designer’s expressions. The increase in size is noticeable and is futurist in appearance. The new Tucson is on a new platform made of lighter material and is slightly bigger than the predecessor. The incoming vehicle is 3 inches longer and 1 inch wider in size than the outgoing vehicle. New hexagonal grille and the trapezoidal headlights have enriched themselves with LED lights. The slightly upper positioning of the headlights on the curvier front line makes the futuristic look of the vehicle more attractive.
