Hyundai Tucson: Exterior Care / Interior Care

Interior general precautions

Prevent caustic solutions such as perfume and cosmetic oil, from contacting the interior parts because they may cause damage or discoloration. If they do contact the interior parts, wipe them off immediately. Refer to the instructions for the proper way to clean vehicle interior surfaces.


  • Never allow water or other liquids to come in contact with electrical/ electronic components inside the vehicle because this may damage them.
  • When cleaning leather products (steering wheel, seats, etc.), use neutral detergents or low alcohol content solutions. If you use high alcohol content solutions or acid/ alkaline detergents, the color of the leather may fade or the surface may get stripped off.

Cleaning the upholstery and interior trim

Vehicle interior surfaces (if equipped)

Remove dust and loose dirt from interior surfaces with a whisk broom or a vacuum cleaner.

If necessary, clean interior surfaces with a mixture of warm water and mild nondetergent cleaner (test all cleaners on a concealed area before use).

Fabric (if equipped)

Remove dust and loose dirt from fabric with a whisk broom or vacuum cleaner. Clean with a mild soap solution recommended for upholstery or carpets. Remove fresh spots immediately with a fabric spot cleaner. If you do not pay attention to fresh spots immediately, the fabric may be stained and its color may be affected. Also, its fire-resistant properties may be reduced if the material is not properly maintained.


Using anything but recommended cleaners and procedures may affect the fabric’s appearance and fire-resistant properties.

Leather (if equipped)

  • Features of seat leather
    - Leather is made from the outer skin of an animal, which goes through a special process to be available for use. Because it is a natural product, each part differs in thickness or density. Wrinkles may appear as a natural result of stretching and shrinking depending on the temperature and humidity.
    - The seat is made of stretchable fabric to improve comfort.
    - The parts contacting the body are curved and the side supporting area is high which provides driving comfort and stability.
    - Wrinkles may appear naturally from usage. It is not a fault of the products.


  • Wrinkles or abrasions that appear naturally from usage are not covered by warranty.
  • Belts with metallic accessories, zippers, or keys inside the back pocket may damage the seat fabric.
  • Be sure not to wet the seat. It may change the nature of natural leather.
  • Jeans or clothes that could bleach may contaminate the surface of the seat covering fabric.


  • Caring for the leather seats
    - Vacuum the seat periodically to remove dust and sand on the seat. It prevents abrasion or damage of the leather and maintain its quality.
    - Wipe the natural leather seat cover often with a dry or soft cloth.
    - Use of proper leather protector may prevent abrasion of the cover and helps maintain the color. Be sure to read the instructions and consult a specialist when using leather coating or protective agent.
    - Light colored (beige, cream beige) leather may be easily contaminated and the stains may be noticeable.
    - Avoid wiping with a wet cloth. It may cause the surface to crack.
  • Cleaning the leather seats
    - Remove all spills instantly.
    - For Cosmetic products (sunscreen, foundation, etc.)
    Apply cleansing cream on a cloth and wipe the contaminated spot. Wipe off the cream with a damp loth and then wipe with a dry cloth.
    - For Beverages (coffee, soft drink, etc.)
    Apply a small amount of neutral detergent and wipe until it does not smear.
    - For oil
    Remove oil instantly with an absorbable cloth and wipe with stain remover used only for natural leather.
    - Chewing gum
    Harden the gum with ice and remove it gradually.
  • Handling prime napa leather (if equipped)
    Try to avoid excessive sunlight and heat exposure. Excessive sunlight and heat exposure naturally fades and dries out napa leather, causing wrinkles and discoloration. If the napa leather is wet with liquid, immediately clean it with lint-free cloth to minimize damage. Do not scratch the napa leather surface with a sharp object. If your napa leather seat is bright colored, it may be contaminated or stained from dyed materials such as jeans.
