Hyundai Tucson coupe renders 2

Another SUV in a coupe body has been rendered by Theophilus Chin, and this time round it’s Hyundai’s third-generation Tucson. We believe that the rendering maestro got his inspiration from the BMW X6 when he decided to do this little reproduction of the Tucson.

The new Hyundai Tucson is a clear step up from its predecessor, not just in terms of features but in design. It’s a significant change, featuring a hexagonal grille that makes up a portion of the SUV’s face with sleeker headlights, which is why perhaps Theo felt he didn’t need to redesign this front portion.

A slanting roofline gives it that SUV coupe look that many premium automakers are adopting recently. In this rendition, the car design manipulator removed the dual metal bars that originally sit atop the Tucson.

In the back, he deleted the upper piece in which the third brake lamp was placed, while the rear windscreen now skews at a near 45 degree angle. He also fashioned the tailgate to arch slightly upwards to give it that ‘natural spoiler’ look, similar to those of premium SUV coupes.

Hyundai’s latest SUV is set to receive a host of tech features, some of which include autonomous braking, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Lane Change Assist and Smart Parking Assist System (SPAS). With all these features, do you think it’s worthy of a more premium coupe body?

And in case you missed it, check out Theo’s coupe-fied Mitsubishi Pajero Sport too.
