Redesigned 2016 Hyundai Tucson Arrives at U.S. Dealerships This Summer

GENEVA — The redesigned 2016 Hyundai Tucson compact SUV will arrive at U.S. Hyundai dealerships this summer, following a world debut at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show.

Hyundai Motor America spokesman Jim Trainor told Edmunds the U.S. version of the Tucson will debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show.

He could not provide such details as U.S. engine specifications at this point.

"We're a ways off from pricing," Trainor added.

The wraps came off the highly anticipated Tucson on Tuesday, showing a more rugged-looking SUV than the current model. The Tucson competes against the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage and Toyota RAV4.

Hyundai said in a statement that its design team's goal was to create a "sleek and agile look" in the redesign. Details include LED headlights, slim taillights and a crease along the sides. The 2016 Tucson rides on a new platform designed to create a roomy interior.

The cabin gets improved materials, along with heated and ventilated front seats and an upgraded infotainment system. A "smart" tailgate that opens at the approach of the key holder.

Safety features include an autonomous emergency braking system, lane keeping assist and rear cross-traffic alert.

Edmunds says: Shoppers making their summer plans get a better look at the 2016 Hyundai Tucson, with lots more U.S. details to follow this spring.
