Speaking of the refreshed Hyundai Tucson 2019, there has actually been not much public information about this SUV. Spy shots of the Tucson 2019 disclose that it may likely get a significant change at the front fascia including fresh headlamps and a bigger grille. Due to the heavy camouflage, the car’s rear is hard to guess how it will look like. And the interior seems to get an improvement, too.
