AutoHome has posted the first interior picture of the Hyundai Tucson facelift for the Chinese market. As reported earlier, Beijing-Hyundai will introduce a unique, China-only revision for the SUV which is significantly different from the global 2019 Tucson unveiled at the New York International Auto Show this year.
Where the exterior of the Tucson facelift for China is significantly different from the international model, it appears the interior is more in-line with its global counterpart. The AC vents are lowered and clustered, as are the controls for the automatic climate control system. It also appears that the China-spec Tucson facelift will get the floating 7-inch display with hard keys on either side. This infotainment system has become the mainstay for current Hyundai models internationally and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The pre-facelift model was available with a dual-tone black-and-beige dashboard, but it appears this mono-tone black-only shade will be available on the facelifted model. Finally, the position and appearance of the electronic parking brake are revised; it now sits behind the gear stalk. The pre-facelift Tucson is available with a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine. The former develops 177 PS and 265 Nm, and the latter makes 165 PS and 203 Nm.

The SUV retails in India from INR 18.29 lakhs to INR 25.74 lakhs, and is available with petrol and diesel engine options, with the latter also offering 2WD and 4WD variants.
