2019 Hyundai Tucson Interior & Cargo

$23,200 - $32,950
Price Range (MSRP)

A mildly updated interior brings the 2019 Tucson more in line with other, newer Hyundai SUVs like the Kona, but doesn’t change any of the Tucson’s strong points that have endeared the current generation to buyers. On base models you’ll still find some tacky plastic trimmings, but on the whole the quality is decent, it feels solid, and the ergonomics are on point. Standard six-way adjustment for the driver’s seat makes it easy to find a comfortable driving position, while the seats are firm and supportive enough to be comfortable on long journeys. Comfort items like heated and ventilated seats are available on higher trims, with even heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel available on the Ultimate model. Space is of a premium in the Tucson, and even tall rear seat passengers will find the head and legroom rather generous, which is a surprise for the segment. Two sets of LATCH anchors feature, and the generous space allows for rear facing child seats.

2019 Hyundai Tucson Interior Space

Five occupants can comfortably be seated in the 2019 Hyundai Tucson, with rear space large enough to squeeze three small adults without too much effort. The seating position is comfortable and standard minimum six-way adjustment along with height and reach adjustment on the steering wheel ensures its easy to find a comfortable driving positioning with a commanding view forward. Rear visibility is limited, but a rearview camera is standard across the Tucson range. The front of the cabin is spacious, but the rear is even more so, with even taller than average adults finding commodious head and legroom.

Interior colors and materials

Two interior finishes are available in three colors. On all models up to the Sport, cloth upholstery is the standard covering with no option to upgrade to leather aside from changing trim altogether. Cloth surfaces can be had in either beige, gray, or black on the SE, Value, SEL, and Sport trims, with color availability dependent on the choice of exterior paint. Color choices are accompanied by matching door upholstery and a color-matching lower dash. From the Limited model, leather is standard, but is only available in either black or beige and the color availability is dependent on the exterior hue. On all models, the upper dash and door panels are black and features chromed trim elements around the air vents and infotainment screen.

Interior Features

For 2019, the standard interior equipment has been upgraded right from the base SE derivative. Infotainment is now taken care of by a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with AM/FM/MP3 capabilities and with built-in Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality. Six speakers are standard on the lower trims, and media inputs include Bluetooth streaming, USB, and auxiliary inputs. From the Value trim, SiriusXM satellite radio and HD radio are made standard as well, and from the SEL trim, a rear USB port is added. From the Tucson Sport, a QI wireless charging pad is made standard for charging of compatible devices and Hyundai installs an eight-speaker Infinity audio system with Clari-Fi music restoration technology. The top-of-the-line Ultimate trim receives an upgraded infotainment system with an eight-inch display and built-in navigation. The Blue Link Connected Car System is standard on all models but the base SE.

2019 Hyundai Tucson Cargo Space

The cavernous amounts of rear passenger space in the Tucson had to come from somewhere, with the sacrifice being made behind the seats in the cargo area. Despite the sacrifice, Hyundai manages to pull off ample storage space for most families with an available 31 cubic feet behind the second row of seats. The space is made more practical by a dual-level cargo floor that can be removed as well for maximum depth. This space can be expanded by folding the rear seats, which fold in a 60/40 split and unlock up to 61.9 cubic feet. While the space is still usable, it’s well below the best in class, with the Honda CR-V dominating proceedings with figures of 39.2 and 75.8 cubic feet respectively.

Within the cabin, there are a number of storage options, including relatively deep door pockets with moulded bottleholders, numerous cupholders, and a number of smaller bins throughout the cabin that hold above average storage capacity for the segment.
