Hyundai Tucson brings a fairly neat dashboard which houses dual-screen panoramic infotainment and instrument cluster setup. Entry level trims feature analogue gauge cluster with a 12.3-inch infotainment screen. The AC vents are treated with what looks like a chrome finish and run across the entire length of the dash, drawing a line between the infotainment and the climate controls. The latter now features real buttons instead of touch capacitive.
