Hyundai Tucson generations

When the Hyundai Tucson was first released in 2004, it was meant to be a budget-friendly 4x4 and it checked all those boxes. Throughout the four generations, Hyundai continued to upgrade and refine the Tucson, making it more comfortable for families. More powertrain options and upmarket features are now offered, all of which helped to make the model one of the top selling crossover SUVs in the UK.

Fourth Generation (2020 to Present)

The fourth-generation Tucson had a completely unique design, separate from previous models. It appeared more like a coupé SUV than a crossover, giving it an athletic visual appeal. The huge grille was matched with futuristic headlights and two air scoops for improved cooling. Inside, the infotainment screen and instrument cluster were also swapped out for more modern offerings.

A 2023 refresh brought a silver skid plate-type trim under the front to make the Tucson look like an off-roader. It also included new alloy wheel designs and a redesigned rear bumper that ,more closely matched the front end.

Third Generation (2015 to 2021)

Hyundai's goal with the third-generation Tucson was to give it a more sporty appearance. New engines were also released to ensure better fuel efficiency. Also, Hyundai increased the wheelbase to offer more interior space and comfort.

By 2019, the Tucson was ready for an update. A new cascading front grille was added with updated headlights and LED daytime running lights. The N-Line spoiler became more prominent, with bigger side air intakes added. The rear bumper was also given a new look.

Used Hyundai Tucson FAQ's

Which is the most popular engine in the Hyundai Tucson?

While petrol is the most popular, specifically the 1.6-litre GDI, there are plenty of diesel-engined Tucsons on the used market as well. Hybrid models can be more efficient and the plug-in variant offers up to 31 miles of electric-only driving per charge.

Which are the most popular model variants?

The newest Hyundai Tucson lineup includes the following model variants: Premium, N Line, N Line S and Ultimate. Older models were available in SE, SE Connect and SE Nav. The SE Nav tends to be the most popular among used car buyers because of the upgraded features such as roof rails, front and rear parking sensors, and privacy glass.

What optional extras should I look out for?

Customers should look out for the head-up display because it keeps the driver's eyes on the road. There are also upgraded stereo systems, some with a subwoofer and amplifier for better clarity.

Is the Hyundai Tucson a good family car?

Yes, the Tucson provides spacious seating for up to five people and its boot is larger than most of its competitors, making it an excellent family car. It's affordable to buy and run, too.

Is there a hybrid version of the Hyundai Tucson?

Yes, over the years, Hyundai has built several hybrid variants. There have been mild hybrids, full self-charging hybrids and plug-in hybrid models, allowing you to find the used model that best suits your needs.

Is the Hyundai Tucson available as an automatic?

Hyundai built the Tucson with manual and automatic transmissions. While the manual gearbox is more popular, there shouldn't be any trouble finding one with an automatic.

Is there a four-wheel drive version available?

Yes, the Tucson is available with four-wheel drive. This added capability is useful for driving on uneven road surfaces or for more control in bad weather. However, the majority of used Tucson models have standard front-wheel drive, so you'll need to search a bit harder to find a 4x4 model.
