Inside the five-seater cabin of the Tucson's entry-level trim, you will get fabric upholstery with a dual-tone black and beige theme. On the other hand, the higher-end trims get leather upholstery to add to the premium feel. Nevertheless, the eight-inch touch screen infotainment system is standard across all variants. Like the one seen in the new Elantra, this one too supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, voice recognition, Bluetooth etc. The AT GL and AT GLS trims also get keyless entry, rear AC vents, dual-zone climate control and a 10-way power adjustable driver seat. These variants also feature Hyundai's new Drive Mode Select, which has three modes - Normal, Eco and Sport to alter the throttle response and steering characteristics of the SUV.
