The price has risen over the runout model and the sharp-ish deals are only on the base Go and Active X. The Elite and Highlander are at full retail so be sure to haggle.
The flagship is loaded, including LED low and high-beams, heated and cooled front seats, panorama sunroof and wireless phone charging.
The base 2.0 has had a minor tweak but the 1.6 turbo and 2.0 turbo diesels are unchanged. A new eight-speed auto on the diesel improves performance and economy.
TECH PERFORMANCE DRIVING
Suspension has been retuned to reduce sharpness over bumps, although the cheapest two are better to drive than the flagship Highlander, due in large part to the more cushioned tyres.
The styling changes are subtle but the grille and headlights have sharper angles and the bumpers, tailgate and rear lights are new. The big improvement: the new dash brings the Tucson up to speed with rivals.
