2024 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid for the U.S.: What’s new?

  • Final model year update before the mid-life facelift arrives next year
  • No changes in the specifications; N Line trim added to the Hybrid variant
  • Delivers a fuel economy of up to 38 MPG
  • Will reach U.S. dealers in the coming months

Introduced in November 2020, the fourth-gen Hyundai Tucson will reach dealers in a facelifted avatar next year, but prior to that, a mildly updated, 2024 model, has been announced for the U.S. market. The 2024 model range, without body changes, continues with hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants. Here’s everything we know about the 2024 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid for the U.S. market. Bear in mind that the pictures shown in this article correspond to an older model year, and we will keep refreshing this page as updates emerge.

Design & Features

The 2024 Tucson Hybrid is a carry-over model, meaning that there are no body changes. The vehicle’s exterior, which embodies ‘Parametric Dynamics,’ and the interior, or ‘INTERSPACE’ as Hyundai themes it, is still fresh and appealing.

In addition to the carried-over Blue, SEL Convenience, and Limited trims, the 2024 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid is available in the sportier N Line trim. The N Line trim flaunts exclusive 19-inch wheels, unique bumpers, body-colored side sills, Sport combination seats⁠, and much more. Hyundai is yet to list the 2024 Tucson Hybrid online and release its complete details, but we expect it to offer a single twin-tip exhaust, special rear spoiler, sport pedals, and all other special features from the gas-powered Tucson N Line.

Stealth LED DRLs, 19-inch alloy wheels, blade-like vertical tail lights connected to a full-width light bar, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a hoodless 10.25-inch virtual instrument cluster, panoramic sunroof, etc. are some of the other main features of the 2024 Tucson Hybrid. Unlike in the outgoing model, the 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system is a standard feature and thus included in the Blue trim as well.

Unlike the outgoing model, the 2024 Tucson Hybrid is also available in a Hampton Gray color, which is little different to the carried-forward Amazon Gray. Other familiar options could be Serenity White Pearl, Phantom Black, Deep Sea, and Shimmering Silver. The interior color options should be the same as those of the outgoing model: Black and Gray. We’ll update this section as Hyundai Motor America divulges new information.


The 2024 Tucson Hybrid has the same technical specifications as the outgoing model. A 1.6-liter Smartstream turbo gasoline engine teams up with a permanent magnet synchronous motor, which draws energy from a 1.49 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack operating at 270 volts. According to the U.S. specifications sheet, the gas engine produces 180 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque, and the motor offers 59 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. The combined power and torque of the hybrid powertrain are 226 hp and 258 lb.-ft., respectively.

A 6-speed automatic torque converter transmission with paddle shifters and the HTRAC all-wheel drive system are standard in the 2024 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid. The electrified SUV features the ‘e-handling’ technology, which uses electric motor torque control to improve cornering performance. When turning into a corner, the electric motor applies precise incremental braking force to the front wheels. Then while exiting the corner, it applies precise torque to the rear axle.

The 2024 Tucson Hybrid is a parallel hybrid vehicle. Its powertrain runs using the electric motor at low speeds, and when it recognizes additional load, like during heavy acceleration or a hill climb, it’ll put the engine to work. The powertrain goes back and forth between driving and charging modes when the driving is relaxed. During deceleration, the regenerative braking system recuperates the braking energy and charge the battery.

The 2024 Tucson Hybrid, like the outgoing model, delivers a fuel economy of 38 MPG (comb.) in the Blue trim and 37 MPG (combined) in the SEL Convenience and Limited trims. In the new N Line trim, the fuel economy (comb.) is 37 MPG.
