The redesigned Hyundai Tucson has just surfaced at this year's New York International Auto Show. Looks-wise, the changes are pretty minimal; it has a new cascading grille and redesigned lights up front, new taillights out back, and a revamped exhaust finisher on higher variants. New 18-inch wheels and refreshed 17- and 19-inch ones are also available.
The interior, meanwhile, gets new designs to the center stack, panel vents, and leather seats, as well as a new rear-view mirror and instrument cluster. New tech onboard includes an electronic handbrake as standard, and rain-sensing wipers, second-row USB charger, high-beam assist, and Qi wireless charging as options. That last one works for compatible Android devices, as well as the iPhone 8 and X.
The US-trim Tucson comes with either a 2.0-liter inline-four (164hp, 205Nm) or a 2.4-liter (181hp, 237Nm) paired to a six-speed automatic. By comparison, our market's version offers a 2.0-liter gasolone or 2.0-liter CRDi powertrain.
Considering that our market's Tucson came out three years ago, it wouldn't surprise us if a mid-cycle facelift would come in the not-so-distant future. Is this something you'd like to see at local dealerships?
