Hyundai's new limited-edition model has a somewhat aggressive aesthetic and unique features.
The car debuts at the SEMA aftermarket trade show -- a great place to show off accessories, and Hyundai's taken that approach one step further.
The 2017Night starts out as an ordinary Tucson Sport. From there, it adds a set of 19-inch, black RAYS wheels with black lug nuts, a panoramic sunroof with dark-tinted glass and gloss-black side mirror covers. Blacked-out trim pieces and "Night" in the model name -- get where this is going?
I'd like to say that the theme continues on to the interior, but it doesn't really. Unique additions to the interior include aluminum sport pedals, a perforated leather-wrapped steering wheel and LED map lights both front and rear. You'll get four choices of exterior paint colors -- gray, blue, white and black pearl.
That's it! There isn't much else here. Standard Tucson Sport accouterments include a 175-horsepower, 195-pound-foot I4 engine, front-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Tucson Night goes on sale later this year. Pricing has not yet been announced, but since the Tucson Sport starts at $25,900, it's safe to assume the Night will start a bit closer to the top-tier Tucson Limited at $29,775.
