The Hyundai Tucson has just received another facelift, quite possibly the final update before Hyundai Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) introduces the all-new Tucson. This model made its global debut two years ago, and is now locally assembled at Inokom’s plant in Kulim, Kedah. Prices have also gone down by as much as 10 percent compared to the CBU variants sold prior to this, which carried a base price tag of RM131,888 for the 2.0L Elegance.

Changes to the SUV are minimal, as they (both CKD Tucsons) only benefit from LED positioning lights (not DRL) and leather seats. Both still sit on 17-inch wheels shod with 225/60 R17 series tyres, while the Sport variant comes with panoramic sunroof, all-round body kit, chrome door handles, push-start button, front and rear parking sensors as well as front and rear view cameras.
