Facelifted Hyundai Tucson Coming With Revised Styling And More Tech

The Hyundai Tucson lives in a rough neighborhood. Not the suburban driveways where most are likely to be parked, but the highly competitive market segment at which it’s pitched.

That means Hyundai has to keep on its toes with a regular schedule of updates lest it go stale, and that’s exactly what it appears to have in store.

It appears that Hyundai’s revising the sheetmetal at both ends and along the doors in between. Expect new bumpers front and rear, with revised air vents and capped by fresh lighting graphics and a resculpted hood and tailgate as well.

Look for the Korean automaker to take the opportunity to fit updated engines, safety equipment, and infotainment technologies inside and under the hood as well when the revised model hits showrooms later this year or early the next. Because if it doesn’t, the competition will start edging in on its territory.

    The current Tuscon already looks amazing.

    I don’t know how they’ll improve upon it, but I’m looking forward to it.

      I’m afraid they will mess it (just like the Kona)

    …and a good transmission that works (seven speeds) ??

    i see kona’s front

    • Nordschleife

      I see that as well but much more subdued. I feel like they should see how the Kona sells before proliferating that face through their line-up

    The Tucson’s sheetmetal is fine as it is, but I suppose future buyers need to know that they are getting something that is the “new.”

    Where the Tucson needs a major overhaul is in the interior/dash – both in design and in materials, but likely will have to wait until the next gen model for that.
