I did a report 55K miles of my Tucson V6 (see Tucson forum). I don't think Hyundai will do serious changes to the Tucson until 2012.
Hyundai should realize that what people want is a compact SUV with offroad capability (not just crossover) and 5-seats. The only shortcoming of the present Tucson is its limited off road feature. The VW Tiguan is the answer for this sector of costumers wishes and the germans has addressed this. Why engine power has to be linked to 7 seats?
I could be happy if Hyundai improve the multi-link suspension (rear) capable of doing the same that the Sorento, for example. Stronger structure.

Today I went to Hyundai showroom in Dubai and seen the Tucson 2009 , it's the same shape as tucson 2008 the only difference is the large CD screen.

IIRC, at the New York Auto Show, one of Hyundai's US Execs confirmed a new round of 24/7 2.0 (2nd 7 new and refreshed cars in 24 months), and I believe a new Tucson should be in the cards of play.
I would like to see the next gen Tucson NA version switch to the fuel efficient 2.4L I4 Theta engine used in the Sonata (NA). At the same time, cancel the 2.7L V6 used in both the Tucson and the Santa Fe.

I heard that Hyundai Tucson will be discontinued in 2010 in Korea.

I don't know about in Korea, but for the US market, the Tuscon replacement is coming soon.
And just looking back in my last post here, my wish came true!! Hyundai is going to delete the 2.7L V6 on both the Tuscon and the Santa Fe (US market), with fuel efficiently 4 cyclinders, which I believe would be Thetas.

There maybe two 4cyl engines offered for the 2010 Tucson. A normally aspirated 2.0 and a turbo 2.0. Plus a 5spd auto box which should improve fuel economy over the current model.
#9 of 114 09 Tuscon Released

Well not too much information. The press release was posted. Some cool new features like a Kenwood Navigation system. The kenwood navi unit isn't all that spectacular. No large display. Instead a Garmin packaged in a Double din stereo. It does have an aux in. Standard on the limited and optional on the lower trims. v6 is staying for 09. Hope this helps.

Doesn't look too good - just like the Rogue - reason I crossed it off my list....
