The Hyundai Tuscon is he brand’s top selling vehicle. For 2025 they have carefully sweetened the pot to freshen it up and add more spice, but not too much as they wouldn’t want to ruin a good thing. In such, it has updated styling inside and out and more tech features than ever before. Is that what you wanted? Well let’s have a look see.

The Hyundai Tucson is already a sharp and progressive design to begin with so for 2025 they simply refined and evolved the details here and there to please the eye even more. There’s a new grille and daytime light signature. It gets new front and rear bumper fascias, revised wheel designs on all trims, and updated emblems all around.

Bolder and simplified design details create a more rugged appeal especially on the off-road themed XRT trim grade we’re looking at here. It features a more robust collection of body cladding design details that might wear a little better out in the brush and dirt than some of the more streetwise trim treatments found on other grades.

Inside is where the biggest news is with its completely redesigned dash that features Hyundai’s new corporate look of a dual screen cockpit layout featuring an available 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an 12.3-inch infotainment display screens.

The center stack is also new and gets hard controls to augment the touchscreen for commonly used functions, my favorite. Also redesigned on all trims is the center console, steering wheel and door panel trims. Upper trim grades now have an electronic column-mounted gear selector toggle that allows even more space to be had in the new center console.

An upgrade array of infotainment systems now feature wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay regardless of which trim grade you choose. Available is a new 12-inch color head-up display that can even project turn-by-turn navigation data on the windshield. Also pulled from higher-end Hyundai models is an available biometric fingerprint sensor that allows for extra security and convenience to get behind the wheel and motor on.

Powering the 2025 Tucson is a familiar family of choices, quite a few of them in fact. There is the standard 2.5-liter naturally aspirated four cylinder with 187 horsepower and eight speed automatic transmission, available with both FWD and AWD.

Then there are the popular 1.6-liter turbocharged hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants which offer heightened efficiency with commendable power levels and a more traditional driving experience than most hybrids offer because of its traditional 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Hybrid has 178 horsepower and the Plug-In Hybrid has a downright 268 horsepower because it has a much more powerful battery and electrical components. Both Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid models are standard wit AWD.

2025 Hyundai Tucson models with the 2.5-liter engine come to dealerships early this summer with Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid rolling out closer to fall. Final pricing will be announced closer to that time.
