It looks like a lovely place to be.
In case you haven't heard, Hyundai has an all-new version of the Tucson in the works for 2021, the company overhauling its popular compact crossover again after just five years. Already we've seen bits of the new fourth-generation model's redesigned interior and exterior, thanks to a few spy shots.
Now, we're getting a better look at the 2021 Hyundai Tucson's purported cabin design, courtesy of a new sketch shared to a French web forum, World Scoop. It's not entirely clear where the sketch originated, so we can't necessarily vouch for its authenticity, but it certainly seems to be the real deal.
The sketch clearly shows a new four-spoke steering wheel design, a digital instrument panel, and a generously sized infotainment screen - essentially all the same touches as were fitted to a prototype Tucson whose interior our spy photographers picked up last month. A few details are omitted, like some of the buttons above the HVAC display and the trim line that wraps around from the center stack, behind the instrument panel, and along the top of the door.
Regardless, the sketch does give us a clear, unencumbered view of what looks like a sleek, stylish new cabin design. While so many new vehicle interiors are marching toward ever-greater complexity, the 2021 Tucson's looks comparatively simple and serene.
Of course, probably the biggest news about the forthcoming fourth-generation Hyundai Tucson is that it will spawn a sport-oriented N-Line variant, to complement the South Korean automaker's Veloster N, i30 N, and Elantra N-Line. The new Tucson N-Line is expected to ship with a turbocharged 2.5L engine with in the neighborhood of 340 horsepower, capable of launching the compact crossover to 60 mph from a standstill in under 6 seconds.
If there are any substantial changes coming to the cabin for that special N-Line model, we can't wait to see them.
