2015 Hyundai Tucson

2015-02-18 12:00

Hyundai will debut its new Tucson at the 2015 Geneva auto show in March.

DETROIT, Michigan - The next-generation Hyundai Elantra has been scoped by Wheels24's spyguys while it was being tested in Lansing, Michigan and it's ready to show off its Sonata-inspired cabin.

The redesigned Elantra is due in showrooms towards the end of 2015 or early 2016 and follows Hyundai's latest "fluidic sculpture" design language as on the Sonata and Genesis.

The recently face-lifted Elantra GT hatchback, shown at the 2015 Chicago auto show, previewed the front of the new Elantra sedan. Expect its sides and rear to get a look more angular than the current model's sweeps and curves, based on what's been seen on the 2015 Sonata.

LATEST HYUNDAI TECH

The latest version of Hyundai's BlueLink and fourth-generation infotainment system will be in the cars. Also expect other high-end options such as ventilated seats and more advanced safety tech as options. Space should grow marginally over the outgoing car.

Engines choice is vague but possibilities include a worked-over version of the current 1.8 and 2.0 units, or the inclusion of the 1.6 turbo and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission offered in the Sonata.

Hyundai will no doubt want to reduce the new Elantra's fuel consumption.

The Elantra GT, based on the European-market i30, won't arrive until 2017.
