Hyundai is bringing something special at this year's New York Auto Show. First captured by our spies donning camouflage and false body panels last January, Hyundai has officially announced that they will be at the Big Apple with the refreshed Tucson.

However, details regarding its refreshed design and tech are still kept under wraps. Based on past spy photos that our insiders took, the Tucson will don a new face along with a more eye-catching rear. Apparently, the updated Tucson will be imbued with Hyundai's 'Fluidic Sculpture' design language which will give a bolder and sleeker appearance.

A variety of gasoline- and diesel-powered engines will supposedly be available for the updated Tucson. Starting with the former, it can come with either a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated inline-four. Over to diesel, a 1.7-liter turbo-diesel and a bigger 2.0-liter CRDi will also be available.

The updated Tucson will be joined by the recently-launched 2019 Santa Fe and the Kona Electric, both of which will be making their first appearances in the US market.

The 2018 New York Auto Show will take place from March 30 to April 8 and will be held at the Jacob K Javits Convention Center.
