new 2025 Hyundai Tucson

Tucson remains the flagship model in Hyundai’s lineup. Also, the mid-cycle refresh is close. We might see it on the 2025 Hyundai Tucson. Fans expect updates, but the company is not making it official yet. The latest generation debuted late in 2021 with cool styling and improved driving mechanics. Nevertheless, changes in the compact crossover segment are very frequent, which is necessary to stay competitive. There are plenty of rivals and buyers can easily opt for some other vehicle. The best way to draw attention is to look fresh.

The Korean company is keeping in touch with the latest trends in the automotive industry, especially compact crossover class. Its vehicle needed a hybrid model and the carmaker built it. The 2025 Hyundai Tucson will also offer the PHEV variant. In the near future, we might see the EV as well. Unfortunately, we are still waiting for the performance edition, called Tucson N. This could be a surprise for the mid-cycle update.

First spy photos of the crossover emerged. For now, we know the vehicle is coming out soon. The facelift changes a few things. The 2025 Tucson doesn’t need a big update, since it has one of the coolest front fascias in the market. Nevertheless, too much camo promises some significant modifications to the body.

Tucson always surprises its fans with fresh design. The front fascia of the latest version is unique and eye-catching. But, from what we can see in the latest spy photos of the new 2025 Hyundai Tucson, the upcoming crossover will be narrower. Front end, grille and hood are revisited, while the rest of the body seems the same. Other small modifications will also be introduced inside the cockpit.

New Trim Level: 2025 Hyundai Tucson N

The facelift is not updating the look of the crossover, but also the packages and features. A small reshuffle will make some options available at lower trims. Grades will be carried over. The entry-level model is the SE, the SEL is a mid-range option, while the most exclusive accessories are there with the Limited edition. Off-road XRT should be back as well, and the crossover is getting a performance-oriented 2025 Hyundai Tucson N package as well.

There are specs upgrades and unique parts that enhance the appearance. Under the hood, we expect a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine with 275 hp. The crossover will be much faster than the base version, which takes almost 9 seconds to accelerate from 0-60 mph. Tucson N will do it in 6 seconds max. More aggressive bumper, spoilers and sporty interior are also upgrades of the N package.

The base SE version is out with minimum equipment. That is why buyers opt for the SEL in most cases. This trim unlocks additional optional packages as well. Tinted windows, power-adjustable driver’s bucket, heated seats, wireless charger, and a blind-spot monitor are standard. Convenience bundle adds sunroof, 19-inch wheels, ambient lighting, while the Premium package adds luxury equipment: genuine leather, cooled seats and Bose sound system. The N Line configuration is basically the Tucson N without a performance engine.

Under the hood of the 2025 Tucson stays a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 187 horsepower. For the compact crossover, this is a fair amount of power. The engine adds 180 lb-ft of torque. An 8-speed auto is paired with the plant and sends power to front wheels, or all four corners on demand. Gas mileage is close to 30 mpg combined with the FWD, while AWD consumes more fuel.

If you are looking for a more efficient ride, the 2025 Hyundai Tucson hybrid combines a 1.6-liter petrol unit with electric motor. Buyers are getting extra power – 225 hp, more torque – 258 lb-ft, while the mileage jumps to 38 mpg combined. This is very close to class leaders that can do more than 40 mpg (Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Toyota Rav4). A 6-speed transmission is a power router for the hybrid system.

A PHEV version is also available. Again, a 1.6-liter is the main source of power, while a larger electric motor helps the system achieve 260 horsepower. The 2025 Hyundai Tucson plug-in hybrid has 33 miles of electric range. Two powertrains combined return 80 MPGe. The bad thing about this vehicle is its price, which is significantly higher. You can also select only SEL or Limited trim levels.
