In terms of the design, the facelifted Tucson will be different in some aspects. On the front end, the Hyundai Tucson will get the most comprehensive revision with a refreshed front bumper, a more dominant cascading grille, full-LED headlamps with LED DRLs, and new set of fog lights. In addition, the facelifted SUV will also receive some new cosmetic elements like redesigned alloy wheels, rain-sensing wipers, revised license plate housing, revamped bumper, and LED taillights.
The same Hyundai BlueLink connectivity system used on the Venue and Creta will also be available on the 2020 Hyundai Tucson. This advanced connectivity system will allow the users to control the car functions smartly and remotely. For example, it enables the cooling system to start before you enter the car. Moreover, it also offers a remote engine start-stop function. To support the Hyundai BlueLink system, the upcoming Hyundai Tucson will be offered with an 8.0-inch floating touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto. Besides, the facelift Tucson will come with some similar features available on the pre-facelift version like wireless charging, electric parking brake and a panoramic sunroof.
