My 22 SEL Convenience Premium package Tucson comes with a traditional incandescent light, and it's super dim in the cargo area. I think possibly all models come with this, a strange omission considering how many LED's there are on this thing.


I purchased these lights based on a Facebook post, they fit, and are a HUGE upgrade in the amount of light in the cargo area. Not blinding, not a weird color, they match everything else on the car perfectly! Replacement is easy, just use a trim tool or small blade screwdriver to pop out the light module, then pop off the white cover. It's a 31mm Festoon light that does not matter for polarity.

Seriously, 5 minutes tops for less than $15, super easy upgrade.

I did this as well and it is a huge difference for light in the cargo area. The bulb that the vehicles comes with is not very bright.

I did this a few months ago as well. World of difference in brightness when cargo area opened.

So, even in your Limited trim this made the cargo area noticeably brighter? I ask because I have the Canadian Ultimate trim (so equivalent to Limited) and was wondering how much (or if) the lighting could be easily improved.

I have the Canadian PHEV Ultimate and I switched to the LED bulb and it made a big difference. The standard bulb barely lit up the cargo area, the LED bulb makes a world of difference and it is less than a 5 minute job once you have the LED bulb.

I just need a single 31mm Festoon bulb then? Any chance you can post a link to what you bought (on a Canadian-friendly site, say on amazon.ca)? Any other interior bulbs that I should upgrade?

TIA!

I also repaced the 2 reading lights covered by the visor. I used the 28mm below. Someone said the 31mm would work but they were too big and I did not like bending the contacts to make it work so I just bought the 28mm lights.

I know in the ultimate PHEV everything else is already LED, it may be different in the HEV, I am not sure.

The glove box also used either the 31 or the 28mm, I can't remember so if you buy both you wil have a spare for that as well.

Yes. Noticeably brighter white light. On Limiteds, the cargo light is the only interioylight that's not LED. Go figure.
