It does look good, though I think the outgoing Tucson might have been the better-resolved design. One thing I would prefer would be smaller headlights and a wider grille, but that's personal preference. The proportions are very impressive; it manages to avoid looking under-wheeled like some of its competitors. I wonder if lower-end Tucsons will be as good.

The interior is disappointing and a bit dated-looking. While there's probably little difference in quality of materials, it would be nice to see more of Kia's aesthetic appeal filter over to Hyundai, since their interior designs lately have been very impressive. I was blown away by the new Sorento at the auto show; the interior would not have been out of place in a VW.

That's a much better new interior than what Sonata got w/ their latest model. Very nice.

eh, agree to disagree. the only similarity i see is license plate location, which isn't really even in the same spot because the Tucson's is on the hatch whereas the Cherokee is on the bumper...

This car is too expensive for what it is. It has nothing more than others.

A nicely executed facelift, even though I don#t think it is much of a change outside; But, and that is important, teh interior looks so much more modern and better, the current one has - for me at least - always been the weakest link ( I thin inside it felt 10 years old), with the Kia Sportage having a so much nicer interior. I also hope materials have improved (again, the Kia feels way more expensive), given it's not on the cheap end of it's segment they were also a bit short on "nice surfaces" compared to other vehicles in it's segment.

Altogether, just like what a mid life update should do - update where work is needed, and don't touch what is good for the sake of change. Often, we do see the opposite...
