As from the front, the 2020 Tucson gets a new cascade grille, Penta-projector LED headlamps, re-sculpted bumper, and a bonnet with sharper creases. The wheels arches are even more flared in comparison to the outgoing Tucson, thus giving it a striking front-end.

Hyundai has updated the engine lineup to meet the BS-6 emission norms.
