2021 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid Review: The State of Current Affairs

Lionel Kong

3. Interior and Features

Hyundai interiors have improved markedly over the last decade. While it’s definitely not comparable to something like a BMW X5, it also doesn’t feel like some kind of budget car cabin tarted up to look expensive. There’s a real sense of solidity to all the surfaces and textures in the car, and soundproofing is very good.

Everything opens and closes with precision, the layout is not overly cluttered, and the Hybrid gets ventilated front seats as well for a very comfortable drive. 

Overhead there’s a full-length panoramic sunroof for a really posh vibe. An interesting point about the Tucson’s instrument cluster is not only is it a completely digital screen, but also doesn’t have a shade over it to protect from sun glare. Hyundai’s designers claim that a new anti-glare screen surface has eliminated the need for the shade, allowing them to present a tidier, sleeker dashboard design. We have to say that it works. The dials remain easy to read no matter which way the sun is shining into the car.

You get a wireless mobile phone charging dock, and by now pretty standard Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto connectivity too.  

The back seats have plenty of headroom though legroom is quite average for a car of this size. The hybrids’ version is the only one that splits into three fold-down segments for through loading from the boot. The base model only splits into two, with a 6:4 divide. Maximum cargo capacity with the seats folded is 1,799 litres.
