In recent years, Hyundai’s modus operandi has been to unveil a new product at home in South Korea before gradually introducing the vehicle in international markets. Well, that's not the case with the Tucson facelift since it was the automaker's UK branch that shared images of the revised compact crossover. While it may look more of the same on the outside, the front grille has been restyled and there are new skid plates to make the Tucson seem wider.

We're used to seeing radical changes on a mid-cycle update from Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis, and this Tucson is no different. The interior looks like it belongs to a next-generation model because the dashboard has been completely reconfigured. It has now been brought in line with the Ioniq 5's by grouping the two 12.3-inch screens within the same housing. As with the electric crossover, the Hyundai logo on the steering wheel has been replaced by four dots, which is Morse code for the letter "H."

The switchgear used to adjust the climate settings has been revamped as well, and pleasantly surprising, there are more conventional controls than before. Aside from old-school buttons, we notice a pair of rotary knobs with built-in screens for the AC, plus another two silver knobs for the volume and other settings. The central air vents are slimmer than before and give the illusion of a dashboard-wide continuous vent by merging with the outer vents.

The more we look at the dashboard, the more changes we can spot. For example, it seems the gear selector has been moved to the steering wheel column. It allowed Hyundai to rethink the center console by integrating a large wireless charging pad, two big cup holders, and a row of buttons ahead of them. We must be looking at a high-end version given the nice stitching on the door cards and dashboard, along with perforated leather on the seats.

That is all Hyundai is willing to reveal for the time being. Considering that the Tucson has already entered the 2024 model year in the United States, this update is unlikely to be offered until the 2025MY. Meanwhile, additional images will be published in the coming weeks, and we're being told there will be new wheel designs to choose from.

New Hyundai Tucson facelift revealed in sporty N Line trim

The current, fourth-generation Hyundai Tucson has been a leader in the family SUV segment since it arrived in 2020 and in 2024 it’ll gain a mid-life facelift - which has already been shown off on Hyundai’s Korean website.

Despite having many excellent rivals such as the Ford Kuga, Toyota RAV4 and its Kia Sportage sibling to contend with, the Tucson has been a favourite of ours in recent years, winning our Mid-size SUV of the Year in 2021, 2022 and 2023. The new one should be even better though, because it’s been “crafted with European customers in mind” according to Hyundai. Other rivals like the Peugeot 3008, Skoda Karoq and Honda CR-V have all been updated since the Hyundai launched, so competition for the Tucson is as tough as ever.

The exterior of the new Tucson has only been given a mild going over. Instead of taking on the blocky approach that’s been used for the new Santa Fe, the Tucson retains its existing “Parametric Dynamics” design language.

The distinctive “Jewel Hidden Lights'' at the front have been tweaked, as have the grille and lower bumper - but overall it's easily recognisable as a Tucson. The flanks feature wheelarch extensions in a contrasting grey colour on the standard car, although on the N Line these are painted in the body colour.

The N Line also gets it’s own front bumper design, an exclusive grille and 19-inch alloy wheels with real carbon fibre centre caps, plus plenty of N Line badging all over. To the rear there are fins on the spoiler and the bumper has been modified too, the dual-exit exhaust tips are retained, however.

Hyundai claims its interior changes bring a “harmonious blend of functionality and aesthetics.” The biggest difference here is the repositioning of the central touchscreen to be connected to the driver’s display - just as on the latest Kona. The steering wheel is also borrowed from the Tucson’s smaller sibling, with a new badge in the centre.

In a bid to make the Tucson’s fascia easier to use, Hyundai has ditched touch-sensitive haptic controls for dials for the temperature, and switches for more commonly used climate functions. The gear-selector buttons have been moved from the centre console, free up more storage space.

N Line models get red stitching on the suede upholstery, black inserts on the steering wheel and more N Line badges. Hyundai has also detailed some N Performance options, including bigger four-piston front brakes finished in red paint and 19-inch lightweight matte black wheels.

The Tucson sits on Hyundai-Kia’s N3 platform and this should mean we won’t see any changes to the powertrain offerings. We expect to see the current range of petrol, hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains carried over.

There’s also no word on pricing for the new Tucson but don’t be surprised to see a mild increase over the current car’s £31,500 starting price when it goes on sale in 2024.
