What's New For the 2019 Hyundai Tucson?

Hyundai has finally released the 2019 Tucson. But what is exactly new in the model when compared to the previous models? This Tucson features several modifications and updates. It also comes with a new powertrain line-up and new standard features. It is worth noting that Hyundai cut down the three inline-four engines that were available in the 2018 model to just two. They also dropped the turbocharged 1.6 L in favor of the 2.4 L direct-injection engine with 181 horsepower. However, the most notable feature of the new Tucson is its fresh design.

Which Trims & Features are Available for 2019?

Hyundai avails the 2019 Tucson in six trims: SE, Value, SEL, Sport, Limited, and Ultimate. The Limited, Sport and SEL trims come with the upgraded 2.4 L inline-4 while the Value and SE retained the base engine. The base SE trim offers 17-inch wheels, hands-free connectivity, remote keyless entry, and 7-inch floating touchscreen. The Value trim comes with additional features such as forward collision warning, an 8-way driver seat, rear cross-lane warning, and push-button start. The SEL comes with 18-inch alloys wheels, upgraded powertrain, and automatic temperature control.

If you are interested in visual flair, the Sport trim offers LED headlights, 19-inch wheels, and unique interior appeal. The interior and the dash layout have been overhauled. The dash layout now features a floating touchscreen. On the exterior, the Sport comes with a new front facia outlined by the latest cascading grille, modernized headlight design, and improved exhaust outlet.

Apart from the five leather seats, all trims come with standard 60/40 rear seat. When the rear seat is folded, the 2019 Tucson has a storage space of 61.9 cubic feet, but this space is reduced to 31 cubic feet when the rear seat is up.

Less Engines but More Power are Highlights of the 2019 Tucson

2019 Hyundai TucsonTo keep up with the industry-wide SUV performance improvements, Hyundai revamped the 2019 Tucson by replacing the 1.6 L turbo engine with a 181 horsepower (2.4 L direct-injection engine) when mated with a six-speed automatic transmission. The change will see the 2019 Tucson shedding about 14 pound-feet of torque. The shift away from the uncoordinated turbo and the six added horses are great upgrades that make the new model more powerful.

For the 2.0-liter engine, Hyundai did not alter the horsepower. You will still enjoy the 151 horsepower with the six-speed auto transmission. In terms of fuel efficiency, the 2.4 L model will most likely offer the similar mpg for the base engine while the 2.0 L will offer higher mpg similar to the 2018 model.
