Hyundai Tucson 2025: Australian pricing and specifications


New hybrid powertrain headlines changes for Hyundai’s Tucson midsizer, along with new technologies and more safety

Hyundai Australia has announced full pricing and specification details for its new 2025 Tucson midsize SUV range after overview information surfaced earlier this week.

The South Korean automaker has confirmed the new 2025 Tucson will feature a hybrid powertrain for the very first time, along with new technologies and a dynamic styling refresh. 

Unlike the related Kia Sportage, the Hyundai Tucson will ditch its 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine and will only be offered in petrol and petrol-hybrid drivetrains going forward.

Pricing begins at $39,100 before on-road costs for the entry 2.0-litre Tucson and climbs to as high as $59,600 before on-road costs for the Premium Hybrid.

Price of entry has increased by $3450, with the most affordable hybrid variant costing $45,100 before on-road costs, or $850 cheaper than the base Kia Sportage Hybrid. 

Three variants will be available from launch; Tucson, Tucson Elite and Tucson Premium, all of which will be available with an optional N-Line pack, if in select powertrain choices in some trim grades.

N-Line will be offered as a sole standalone variant in Tucson 1.6 T-GDi AWD form. Elsewhere, N-Line is essentially an upcharge – of between $1500 and $4000 – on seven other trim levels in the range. 

The Highlander name used previously has been discontinued for 2025, replaced by the Premium nameplate.  

The Hyundai Tucson competes in the midsize SUV segment with its mechanically-related Kia Sportage, as well as the Toyota RAV4, the Honda CR-V and the Nissan X-Trail

The 2025 Hyundai Tucson is now available to order from local dealerships.

New hybrid powertrain headlines powertrains 

Hyundai will offer a hybrid drivetrain for its Tucson for the very first time this year. This system consists of a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with an additional electric motor to produce maximum combined outputs of 172kW/264Nm

This hybrid system is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission and the option of either front- or all-wheel drive, unlike its related Sportage cousin. 

All Tucson Hybrids will feature Hyundai’s smart regenerative braking mode, along with e-motion electric-dynamic torque vectoring control system.

A 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine is also available which produces 132kW/264Nm and is paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. 

The previously available 2.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine has been discontinued for the 2025 Tucson range.
