The third-gen Hyundai Tucson has been on the market since 2015 and now, it’s time for this famous Korean SUV to receive some refreshment. Recently, some spy shots have disclosed the Hyundai Tucson 2019 facelift while being tested in public.

Although the car is covered in a heavy camouflage, its front fascia still reveals a fresh honeycomb grille which is also used in the up-to-date cars like the upcoming three-door coupe Veloster and the B-segment SUV Kona. Through the spy images, the headlights come with new LEDs while its shape and details are still difficult to pin down at this point. The front bumper and air intakes are also concealed and the bonnet is predicted to be redesigned.
