The last time we saw the Tucson mules, the vehicle's rear was covered and hiding some of its shape. Now, we get an even better look at what's to come. Expected to be launched globally in the middle of 2020 as a 2021 model, the all-new Hyundai Tucson's proportions are clearly visible.

It's too early to talk about powertrains, but we would be surprised if there was not some of electrification thrown into some models. The global market is lapping up SUVs at an impressive rate and this segment, in particular, is jampacked with competitors such as the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, Volkswagen Tiguan to name but a few.

What we're interested in is why the vehicle being tested on the Nurburgring. Could there be a sportier Tucson on its way? Perhaps Hyundai global has noted the South Africa-only Tucson Sport's success?
