2025 Hyundai Tucson: Introducing ‘Baby Mode’ for Smoother Family Journeys

Hyundai has revealed the latest version of its Tucson SUV, set to hit North American markets in 2025. While the outside looks familiar, there are significant improvements under the hood and inside the cabin.

One big change is the power boost for the hybrid models. The standard hybrid now has 231 horsepower, up by 6 from before. The plug-in hybrid gets even more power, with 268 horsepower. There’s also a new feature called “Baby Mode” for hybrid models, which makes the ride smoother, especially for little passengers.

For traditional engines, the Tucson sticks with a 2.5-liter one making 187 horsepower. Inside, the dashboard has been redesigned with two big screens and a Morse code “H” instead of the Hyundai logo on the steering wheel.

Other interior upgrades include simpler climate controls, a new gear selector position, and more storage space.
