    2024 Hyundai Tucson

    The Parametric Dynamic design language is beginning to grow on me.​

    The 2024 Hyundai Tucson uses the “Parametric Dynamic” exterior design which has proven to be a positive.

    2024 Hyundai Tucson Exterior

    Up front, half-mirror DRLs are integrated yet deemphasized within the large parametric grille. They are only visible when illuminated.

    The SUVs ‘Parametric Dynamics’ profile incorporates contrasting jewel-like angled surfaces that stand out from the rest of the segments horizontally based layouts with cladded wheel wells. The long hood and flat roofline plus longer wheelbase w/ short overhangs match the competitors own but the geometric angles and edges create a striking contrast. An upper chrome DLO trim piece begins sliver thin brightwork from the side mirrors and expands as it makes its way across the roofline to a full chrome floating roof like end at C-pillar.

    The 2024 Tucson features a full-width racetrack tail lamp w/ half-concealed triangular shapes that are visible when illuminated. The Hyundai logo is elevated and integrated into the glass, and the rear wiper is concealed beneath the rear spoiler.

    2024 Hyundai Tucson Interior

    Tucson’s interior includes a more standard horizontal layout from door edge to door edge but with a twist. The central display, upper dash and vents are moved toward the driver with twin silver garnish lines running from the center fascia to the rear doors. The driver display, lower dash and glove box are set in a few inches adding a unique layered effect for the driver and front seat occupants. Ambient mood lighting is adjustable to 64 colors in ten levels of brightness.

    A 10.25-inch full-touch screen lacks volume and tuning buttons.


    Tucson’s second-row seats feature fold-and-dive functionality for easily optimized reconfiguration capability between passengers and cargo. For extra convenience, a release lever for this function is also located in the rear cargo area.

    The 2024 Tucson passenger and cargo volume are 108.2 and 38.7 cu ft respectively. That is a lot of volume!

    2024 Tucson vs 2024 RAV4 Dimensional Comparison

    2024 Tucson/2024 RAV4

    Length (in.): 182.3/180.9
    Width (in.): 73.4/73.0
    Height (in.): 65.6/67.0
    Wheelbase (in.): 108.5/105.9
    Cargo Volume (cu. ft.): 38.7/37.6
    Passenger Volume (cu. ft.): 108.2/98.9

    A large amount of usable cargo volume behind the first and second row seats.​

    2024 Hyundai Tucson HEV/PHEV Drivetrain

    The Tucson HEV/PHEV uses the direct-injected and turbocharged 177 hp and 195 lb.-ft. of torque 1.6L mated to a std. 6-speed AT. The hybrid powertrain is a std. single clutched 44.2 KW motor between the ICE and AT with a second HSG motor acting to spin up the ICE and recharge the 1.49 kWh pack during ICE-on activity just as Hyundai has used for years.

    The combined hybrid powertrain also produces an estimated 226 total system hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. This hybrid powertrain is 30 percent more fuel efficient than the standard gasoline engine, with 20 percent more torque and provides more than 500 miles of range before refueling.

    The PHEV features the same direct-injected and turbocharged 1.6L I4 coupled to the 6-speed AT but the PHEV battery is 13.8 kWh providing an estimated all-electric range (AER) of 28 miles. PHEV L2 charging through the onboard 7.2 kW charger takes just under 2-hours from flat to full.

    Like the RAV4 HEV/PHEV, the Tucson HEV/PHEV models include AWD standard.

    2024 Hyundai Tucson HEV/PHEV Chassis

    The Tucson’s suspension has been refined with electric motor torque controlling dynamic inputs to improve cornering performance. As the Tucson hybrid turns-in to a corner, the electric motor system applies incremental braking to the front wheels, increasing their tire contact patch on the road surface for enhanced traction and steering response while initiating turn-in. Then, as the vehicle moves to exit the corner, the electric motor applies torque to the rear axle, increasing the rear tire contact patches for enhanced traction and control accelerating out of the corner.
