Styling revisions for the impressive 2019 Hyundai Tucson

A bolder look outside, some material improvements inside, and added safety technology across the range are the highlights of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson. All models now feature collision avoidance and lane-keeping assist systems as standard, while Hyundai has simplified the lineup to SE, Value, SEL, Sport, Limited, and Ultimate trim levels. As for engine choices, the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine is no more. The SE and Value models feature a 164 hp 2.0-liter engine, and SEL models and above gain a 181 hp 2.4-liter engine. Both engines use a six-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive remains standard with all-wheel drive an option.

The SE trim comes with everything you could want, including Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, Bluetooth® connection, alloy wheels, a rearview camera, and air conditioning. The Value adds some desirable extras, including power adjustment to the driver’s seat as well as heating to the front seats. The Limited packs in even more, including leather upholstery, while the Ultimate features luxury-car levels of standard equipment. All drive well, even with the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine dropped from the range. A strong contender for class honors, the Tucson is worth looking at if you want a well-rounded compact SUV.
