2025 Hyundai Tucson: The Ultimate Guide to the Refreshed Compact SUV – The Hyundai Tucson is one of the most popular small SUVs on the market because it looks good, has a roomy cabin, and comes with fuel-efficient engine choices. But Hyundai isn’t sitting back. It just released an updated version of the 2025 Tucson in Europe, which shows us some of the changes that will be made to the U.S. version as well. We will look more closely at what’s new for 2025 in this blog post. We will talk about the updated Tucson’s style, interior, engine, release date, and price.
Design: Exterior and Interior
The 2025 Hyundai Tucson doesn’t look very different from the current model. However, some small changes make it look bigger and better put together. The front grille has a new design and daytime running lights that look better. The front and back bumpers and skid plates have also been stretched to make the SUV stand out more. Plus, the Tucson gets new wheels that range in size from 17 to 19 inches.
The most important changes have been made to the inside of the 2025 Tucson. Hyundai has changed the dashboard to make it more modern and useful. It now has a horizontal plane with a large storage space on the passenger side and two 12.3-inch screens that hold the digital instrument panel and the entertainment system. The second one uses Hyundai’s new ccNC software, which makes it easier to join and customise.
There is now a wireless charging pad, two cup holders, and a row of buttons for different tasks on the centre panel. It has been moved from the console to a stick on the steering column, which makes more room on the console. With four dots that stand for the letter “H” in Morse code, the steering wheel has a different look.
The addition of physical buttons for the climate control and music system is one of the best changes to the inside. These replace the touch-sensitive settings that were often hard to use. It also has rotary controls with built-in screens that let you change the level, tuning, temperature, and fan speed.
The quality of the materials and stitching inside has also gone up, and higher model levels now have ventilated leather seats and soft-touch materials. The Tucson also has a lot of room for people and things. Both rows have plenty of headroom, legroom, and shoulder room. Behind the back seats, there is space for up to 38.7 cubic feet of goods. If you fold the seats down, the space grows to 73.8 cubic feet.
Hyundai hasn’t said what powertrains will be available in the 2025 Tucson yet. Still, we think they’ll be similar to what’s available in the current model. That means a base 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine with 187 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque, an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The EPA says that this engine gets 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway for FWD models, which is a good mix of speed and gas mileage.
There are also two hybrid versions of the Tucson: a standard hybrid and a plug-in hybrid. The engines in both are 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinders. They work with an electric motor and a battery pack to make them more powerful and fuel-efficient. The gasoline-powered hybrid has 226 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, while the electric hybrid has 261 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive is standard on both hybrids, and they both have an automatic gearbox with six speeds.
The regular hybrid gets 38 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. The plug-in hybrid, on the other hand, can go up to 32 miles on electric power alone before moving to gas mode. There are also federal tax credits and state benefits that can lower the price of the plug-in hybrid.
Release Date and Price
The 2025 Hyundai Tucson should go on sale in Europe early in 2024. Later that same year, it will also be available in the United States. Hyundai hasn’t said how much the new Tucson will cost yet, but we don’t think it will be much more or less than the current model. That means the base SE trim with front-wheel drive will cost about $29,000, and the plug-in hybrid Limited trim with all-wheel drive will cost about $40,000.
If you want a small SUV that looks good, has lots of room, is high-tech, and uses gas efficiently, the 2025 Hyundai Tucson is a great pick. The Tucson is ready to compete in its class thanks to its updated look, better interior, and range of engine choices.
