Replacing the 1.6L turbo engine is a fresh 2.4L 4-cylinder.

At the New York Auto Show this year, Hyundai has launched the all-new Hyundai Tucson 2019. The crossover now receives significant changes in its design, interior and technology as well.

At first glance, the new Tucson looks like its brother - the Hyundai Santa Fe 2019. The front fascia features a redesigned trapezoidal grille with sharper edges than the outgoing model. The center is now adorned with 4 slats, instead of 3 units. Besides, the headlights get L-shaped running lamps, earning the car a more angular look. Moving to the rear, the changes aren’t drastic including tweaked tail lamps with a smoother shape and an additional chrome trim for the Limited version.

Stepping inside, the car gets even more expensive changes in its interior. Hyundai's designers have reorganized the center stack so that the infotainment system is now positioned separately above the dashboard, instead of integrating into the dash and the vents are moved under the screen. Besides, the braking system is also updated with a new electronic parking brake.

Especially, passengers can be more assured about their safety because the Tucson’s safety features are also improved. The updated package includes:

  • Standard forward collision-avoidance assist
  • Standard lane keeping assist
  • An adaptive cruise control
  • A surround-view monitor
  • An adaptive cruise control
  • High beam assist
  • Wireless device charging
  • A 2nd-row USB charger
  • Rain-sensing wipers

Speaking of the engines, the Hyundai Tucson 2019 still retains the standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine producing 164 hp and 204 Nm of torque. Noticeably, the crossover is no longer offered with the familiar 1.6L turbo 4-cylinder mill. Instead, a 2.4L 4-cylinder powertrain with 181 hp and 237 Nm of torque will jump into the range as a replacement. Both engines of the Tucson 2019 work in a conjunction with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The 2.0L is used for the SE and Value versions while the 2.4L is equipped for the Sport, SEL and Limited variant.
