For 2019, the Tucson gets styling tweaks both inside and out. Outside, the shape of the headlamps hasn’t changed much, but these are all-LED units now. Well, at least in the top of the line spec, they are. The grille has been redesigned, and it is more in line with what we have seen on the new Xcent and the Verna. Bumpers too are new, and Hyundai has changed the design for the wheels, the tailgate and the fuel filler cap.
Inside, the biggest change is around the dashboard; specifically, the multi-media screen. In the current car, the screen is integrated in the dash. But, the facelift uses a floating tablet design. Not only does this give the Tucson´s interiors an air of freshness, I thought it helped improve the visibility as well. And, of course, the new screen gets better graphics and nicer touchscreen response.
Now, the car we drove had some features we might not get in India, like lane change assist and adaptive cruise control. But, otherwise, it’s mostly the same. The quality, the ergonomics, the feature-list, as well as the convenience of cups and bottle holders and storage spaces are identical to the current car. If you don’t remember what all that’s like in the current car, here’s our detailed breakdown on it.
