I’m digging most of it. The side detailing is going to take some getting used to (just like the Elantra). I’m like the overall interior design but hope, just like the K5, that physical buttons show up on the US version.

I think the Parametric styling is a bit tragic. It's not a good thing when you make Toyotas and Hondas look almost demure. I don't like it on the Elantra (although perhaps I'll feel differently when I see it in-person), and I don't like it here. I liked how current-European Hyundai's designs were. This looks a bit... confused. And I've never been particularly fond of 1970 car designs.

(Edit.... I also feel the "Parametric" styling is trying to hide the fact that much of the profile of the car -- including the side windows -- is very similar to the current car)

The interior looks very nice, but the A-pillars seem very heavily angled. I can't actually comfortably drive a Sonata b/c of the swoopy styling, and I'm disappointed that Hyundai choose to do the same w/ the Tuscon.

The engine choices and tech is good. I think it will be very successful.

The two wheelbase strategy is an interesting one, similar to what VW does with their tiguan. I feel spring 2021 for north american sales?

It does give me a Lexus NX /Toyota vibe from angels, together with some detailing that has some Peugeot to it; But, altogether, a rather good looking CUV, I like they went bold. Hopefully, the market will as well.

It's way over-decorated. All those cheap little tacked-on elements need to go. The car is interesting enough without them with the gorgeous character lines and side stampings. The interior needs a volume knob, and I don't get why the emblem is in the rear glass. But those are minor quibbles and I think it's pretty successful overall.

The interior is beautiful. Still not sold on the face, but I get the direction they're going.

I'm curious to know more about the battery option...come on Hyundai - spill the beans!

It's trying too hard...

I like how bold the front is and I think that area is the best of the exterior. It's not overdone and glutted with tacky trim.
But that profile... Hyundai seriously needs to rethink their surfacing strategy. This is just incoherent. The repeated vertical/diagonal creases, the contorted plastic trim along the skirts (bonus fake air vents because??), the thick chrome piece above the DLO (again, with some weird vent-like surfacing?).

And those taillights are just too busy. Too tall. I wish the "teeth" were much smaller.

The interior is nice, although the teasers had my hopes higher. The design and layout are great, but the materials look ho-hum.

100% agree. What this design needs is a good dose of restraint.
