Hyundai heavily updated the model for 2019.
If you’re a paint color connoisseur, then the 2020 Hyundai Tucson has you covered. There aren’t any overtly new paint colors coming to the model, but the colors do get some tweaks. In refreshing the color palette, Stellar Silver replaces Molten Silver, Magnetic Force replaces Coliseum Grey, Winter White replaces Dazzling White and Cream White replaces White Pearl. Take that for what you will, but most of the outside world likely won’t notice those changes much.
Nor will they notice changes to the powertrain, because there aren’t any. The 2020 Hyundai Tucson still comes standard with a 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder, putting out 161 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. Above that, there’s a 2.4-liter four-cylinder which manages 181 horsepower and 175 lb-of torque. Both engines still mate up to a six-speed transmission, with either front or all-wheel drive. Trim levels remain the same as well. The SE and Value models get the 2.0-liter engine. Higher SEL, Sport, Limited and Ultimate models get the 2.4-liter unit instead.
One area the 2020 Hyundai Tucson stands out, as it usually has, is on value. This lightly updated model comes with a standard suite of safety features including Collision Avoidance Assist, Lane Keep Assist and Driver Attention Warning. Rain-sensing wipers, a 360-degree Surround View Monitor and Smart Cruise Control are available as optional equipment.
Inside, the 2020 Hyundai Tucson is the same as before. That’s no bad thing, as the interior is well laid out and has all the essentials you’d likely want. There’s a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Hyundai’s Blue Link connected services suite is optional, as is wireless phone charging.
Hyundai did not announce pricing for the 2020 Tucson yet, but we really don’t expect it to move much from the current model’s $24,445 starting price.
