The Hyundai Tucson is all-new for 2016, and the new model is a dramatic improvement over the old crossover. I felt the previous Tucson was underpowered, unattractive, poorly built, and it wasn’t very great to drive. This new Tucson, however, uses the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design that debuted on the Genesis, and it looks great. The sharp headlights, big grille, and LED fog lamps brighten up the nose, while the 19-inch alloy wheels and silver accents add a dash of extra luxury. Around back we have interesting taillights that are very similar to the Genesis, an aerodynamic spoiler and dual squared off exhaust tips that are finished in chrome. Overall the 2016 Tucson is very handsome, and it certainly sets the visual benchmark for the compact CUV class.
