In September of 2020, this fourth-generation 2024 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid was released across the U.S. in 2022 as a model. Hyundai is currently working on a facelift of the compact SUV. The upgraded version is set to go on sale within the United States as a 2025 model. Here’s everything you need to be aware of the latest Hyundai Tucson which is currently in the global test phase.
2024 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid Redesign
In the majority of OEM designing studios, an overhaul generally involves minor changes to the exterior, however, Hyundai isn’t among them. Hyundai is a different story. South Korean automaker invests significantly in midlife upgrades. However, spy photos suggest that this might not be the case for Hyundai’s newly launched Hyundai Tucson. Hyundai’s manufacturing team’s prototype may have managed to cover up important visual changes quite well! Even though it’s not a new design the current design has a lot of appeal and is expected to last a long time.
The refreshed Hyundai Tucson features a brand-new radiator grille that features horizontal bars with a crisscross pattern. This makes it similar to Hyundai Santa Cruz. Hyundai Santa Cruz. Before this, it was reported based on images of the only Chinese-only Hyundai Mufasa, that it might resemble a design similar to the Palisade. Recent photos strongly suggest that the brand-new Tucson will follow its path in terms of styling without being influenced by local Hyundai SUVs.
In addition to a redesigned grille, we anticipate the new 2024 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid to sport a redesigned front and rear lighting along with fresh bumpers, as well as brand new wheel sizes of 19 inches. All in all, these improvements will give this Korean automobile a sturdy and robust appearance, assuring its appeal for years to come until the release of the next-generation Tucson which is scheduled for 2026.
Moving into interior design, Hyundai will make changes to address feedback common to customers. Recent spy shots taken from South Korea have indicated that the refreshed Tucson will feature a revamped dashboard, and we anticipate it to be more conventional. We’ve seen a working prototype with a dual-display configuration to display the instruments as well as an infotainment system, a style that was seen during recent Hyundai launches, including Kona, the 2nd-gen Kona as well and the 5th-gen Santa Fe. The large, seamless appearance of the panel with the display should provide occupants with a feeling of being in a modern vehicle.
The steering wheel is also brand new that is borrowed from the latest Kona We expect the center console and the ambient lighting system to be able to carry modifications. In addition, the designers could shift to physical controls in the center stack to replace several capacitive buttons used for the information and climate control systems. This would increase the usability and make it more practical and easy to use for Tucson drivers. Additionally, some buyers have expressed their desire for higher-quality materials, particularly on the top-end Limited version, which may be improved.
Engine & Specs
There’s no information on the upcoming 2024 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid specs, but you can be sure that electric and hybrid versions will be a part of the future mix of powertrains across the U.S. Both versions with electrified powertrains will utilize the recognizable combination of the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine as well as an electric motor at the front axle. It comes with a six-speed auto transmission as well as an HTRAC All-Wheel Drive system, sending drives directly to the wheels.
Its Tucson Hybrid and Tucson Plug-in Hybrid are both extremely efficient however, they aren’t the most comfortable when pulled into the corners, and can be a bit unruly in corners due to the large batteries. They provide a great riding experience on most roads, except for large speed bumps. Also, Hyundai engineers should have been contacted by many customers about the car’s light steering and they ought to aim to improve the quality of their steering with the new version update.
When it comes to plan updates for Tucson The most important area that needs to be improved is fuel efficiency. The current models aren’t up to the mark when compared with Toyota’s RAV4 Hybrid and RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid. Particularly the plug-in hybrid model might benefit from a larger battery. We do not have a formal statement regarding what Hyundai is planning for the future however we think that improving the effectiveness of the engines and the EV mode range must be the top priority of Hyundai.
