Of course, with every out of this world design you always have to think, how far car you really go without going to far.
Some of the features of the new Tucson are a bit too far and then there are some which are segment changing. The front grille is one part which is segment changing and is also going too far. It goes too far not because of the shape of it, it is because the upper and lower grille are of two different styles. This is something which just does not work, because everything is always suppose to flow evenly. The next major downfall of this design is the fact that the Tucson has the same fat person stance as the Elantra. This is one feature that has come to play but still does not seem all that great.
