The Tucson represents Hyundai in the segment of compact crossovers for years. The original model arrive in 2004 and we have seen three generations of it so far. When it comes to the current, third-generation model, it is on the market since 2015. Despite it is still quite fresh, it already received a mid-cycle update. A facelifted model had a premiere at the New York Auto Show last April. We have seen a lot of interesting changes, mainly in terms of the styling. Therefore, we don’t count on more important novelties for the 2020 Hyundai Tucson.

It should continue in the same way, with a familiar overall design, styling and interior. The powertrain lineup should also remain completely the same. On the other side, a couple of new standard features is something we could expect to see in the next year. Still, don’t come on earlier arrival. The 2020 Hyundai Tucson release date will be scheduled for the last quarter of next year.

2020 Hyundai Tucson Design

In terms of base design characteristics and exterior design, the 2020 Hyundai Tucson definitely won’t change. The recent update has brought a lot of interesting changes and we definitely don’t expect to see any bigger novelty before a complete redesign, which won’t happen in next several years. Of course, the visual appearance was on focus with this update. Naturally, most of the changes came at front, where you can notice new grille and bumper. Changes on the rear end were pretty intense as well. You can notice things like new rear bumper, different positions of lighting groups etc. All in all, seems like a fine amount of changes, which leads us to conclusion that the 2020 Hyundai Tucson will definitely come with the same appearance.

Changes on the inside were pretty numerous as well. The dashboard suffers most. It now features a completely new touchscreen, which is positioned higher and comes with a kinda tablet-like shape. To remind you, the previous one was completely integrated into the dash. Such rework caused different design of air intakes as well. Still, climate controls and rest of the dash remains the same. Rest of the cabin will keep the same layout until a redesign. The 2020 Hyundai Tucson will continue with a nicely designed cabin, which offers a lot of legroom and a decent amount of cargo space. On the other side, materials could be betters.
