The current fourth-generation Hyundai Tucson has been around in the US since 2020. Now it looks like the compact SUV is finally get a facelift for the 2025 model year. Although it may look similar on the outside, there are a few changes to front grille and skid plates that make the Tucson seem wider.
The interior looks like it belongs to a next-generation model as the dashboard has been completely reconfigured. Like the Ioniq 5, the Tucson groups two 12.3-inch screens within the same housing and the Hyundai logo on the steering wheel has been replaced by four dots, which is Morse code for the letter "H."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 thankfully, 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 controls and other settings. The central air vents are slimmer than before as well and give the illusion of a dashboard-wide continuous vent.
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. That 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 premium stitching on the door cards and dashboard, along with perforated leather on the seats.
But that's all Hyundai is willing to reveal for the time being. Considering the 2024 Tucson has already debuted in the United States, this update won't be offered until the 2025MY.
