The 2019 Hyundai Tucson is a compact SUV that is practical with a comfortable interior that offers a plentiful array of electronic features. Drivers of this vehicle will enjoy a smooth ride and be able to relax in a quiet interior. The interior is also relatively attractive for this class of SUV. Its attractive price makes it a good choice for families who aren't very concerned with high performance.
What’s New for 2019?
The 2019 Hyundai Tucson is the third iteration in the generation of this vehicle that was introduced in 2016. In 2019, the Tucson has a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that replaces the 1.6-liter power plant. There are some new technology features that include automatic emergency braking and a forward collision warning system. The infotainment is now enhanced with a new 7-inch touchscreen and smartphone apps for Apple and Android smartphones.
The standard technology that comes with this SUV includes USB ports, smartphone connection apps, Bluetooth support, and a nice infotainment system that is controlled via a 7-inch touchscreen. Available features include an 8-inch touchscreen, Infinity 8-speaker premium audio and satellite radio. A panoramic sunroof is also available for a more upscale interior.
The infotainment system is straightforward, easy to read and intuitive to use. The placement of knobs and buttons on the front panel makes the use of features convenient for the driver and passengers. The technical aspects of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson are overall user-friendly.
This compact SUV comfortably seats 5 people. The rear seating area is not the most spacious for this class of vehicle, but it comfortably accommodates 2 adults. The interior looks relatively appealing, and it remains quiet when driven at high speeds. The vehicle provides two sets of LATCH connectors that allow the driver to connect car seats for small children. This system is rated favorably by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for ease of use.
The cargo space offers 31 cubic feet behind the rear seats, which is more than adequate for a family's luggage or other activities such as tailgating and picnicking. The vehicle also offers the capability of folding the rear seats. This increases cargo capacity to 62 cubic feet, which is a useful amount of space, even if competing models offer slightly more in the same price class. In general, the 2019 Hyundai Tucson focuses more on interior passenger space while sacrificing slightly on cargo space.
Engine, fuel economy and handling
The base four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine produces 164 horsepower which is adequate for most driving situations. The optional 2.4-liter engine produces 181 horsepower for a slight upgrade in performance, but it won't deliver overwhelming acceleration.
The Tucson fuel usage with the standard engine is 23 miles per gallon in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. With the 2.4-liter upgrade, the city mileage is 22 mpg, and it's 28 mpg when driving on the highway. The fuel economy is comparable to competing vehicles of a similar type such as the Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5.
Driving the Hyundai Tucson does not feel at all sporty, but the ride is appreciated for its comforting and easy feel. The handling feels solid on the highway, but the car doesn't easily overtake cars at high speed or hug corners in dynamic driving situations.
The 2019 Hyundai Tucson is available in six trim levels that are described below.
The base version of the Tucson offers an impressive array of features including USB and auxiliary outlets, a rearview monitor, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, remote keyless entry system and a 6-speaker audio system with a 7-inch color touchscreen interface.

How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Hyundai Tucson
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Hyundai Tucson invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Hyundai Tucson MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
