The five-passenger Tucson is offered in both front- and all-wheel drive configurations. Power is supplied by either a 161-hp 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine, or a new 181-hp 2.4-liter four cylinder; both are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode. Trim-dependent standard equipment includes: a hands-free power liftgate, 19-inch aluminum wheels, LED headlights, front fog lamps, passive entry/start, heated front seats, leather upholstery and dual-zone automatic climate control, along with HD/satellite radio, Bluetooth wireless phone/audio streaming, USB ports, smartphone integration, wireless device charging, voice-activated navigation and an 8-inch touchscreen display. Safety features found on every Tucson include anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, electronic stability/traction control systems and a rearview monitor, as well as six airbags. Other available driver-assist technologies include Blind Spot Collision Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, Pedestrian Detection, High Beam Assist and Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go.
The Hyundai Tucson gets an extensive refresh for the 2019 model year. Exterior and interior styling and equipment are revised, while safety is enhanced with the addition of standard Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist and Driver Attention Warning technologies. Additionally, a new Night trim debuts, featuring 19-inch BBS black aluminum wheels, black grille and mirrors, aluminum sport pedals and a panoramic sunroof.
