Introduction, Exterior

Bursting on to the scene a little more than five years ago, the Tucson radically changed the SUV landscape here. For the first time, there was an affordable SUV on the market that made the body type available to the masses. And the previous generation saw healthy sales when its sticker price wasn’t marred by high COE premiums.

However, this latest facelift model appears at a more trying time than its predecessor and will be held to a higher standard than its predecessor due to the increased selling price.



Externally the new Tucson sees little changes. Most obvious of which is the addition of a new headlamp cluster. The new headlamp cluster incorporates new projector lamps as well as LED daytime running lights.

Besides the headlamps, the Tucson retains its unique wind-swept design that makes it stand out from other SUVs in the market.

These guys are fast, responding the very next day with offers and more importantly higher than what was offered by the dealer whom I am buying my car from.
