The upcoming fourth-generation Hyundai Tucson will showcase its edgy and aggressive appearance on November 9 from West Hollywood. This will be the first time the all-new 2022 Tucson will debut in North America.
The virtual premiere event will take place at 9 a.m. PT on November 9, at The London West Hollywood at Beverly Hills. The event will be streamed at https://www.hyundaiusa.com/us/en/vehicles/2022-tucson, hyundainews.com, and HyundaiUSA’s social media channels.
Speakers at the event include:
- José Muñoz, Global Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai Motor Company, president and CEO of both Hyundai Motor North America and Hyundai Motor America
- SangYup Lee, head of the Hyundai Global Design Center and Senior Vice President at Hyundai Motor Company
- Sage Erickson, American professional surfer and two-time winner of the US Open of Surfing
Hyundai remains true to its commitment to expand its SUV lineup by the end of next year. The Tucson is Hyundai’s best-selling model globally. José Muñoz will unveil the new Tucson himself, while SangYup Lee will discuss the innovative design that went into the 2022 Tucson.
Also being featured at the premiere will be professional surfer and Hyundai ambassador, Sage Erickson. Sage first partnered with Hyundai February of last year for the #GreatSoCalChallenge, where she drove the Hyundai Kona from Huntington Beach to Big Bear, surfing and snowboarding in the same day.
Her relationship with Hyundai continued as she drove the Tucson during her time in SoCal for the 2019 US Open of Surfing, going on to win that competition for the second time. Genuinely enjoying her experience with Hyundai vehicles, Sage went on to become a Hyundai ambassador, driving the flagship Palisade until the arrival of the all-new 2022 Tucson.
The new Tucson’s body is bigger and wider than previous generation models, with design structures that give it a coupé-like character. Overall, the body is more chiseled, athletic, and designed with an emphasis on forward motion even when standing still.
