The all-new SUV is available now.
At this year's 2018 New York Auto Show, Hyundai showed off the facelifted 2019 Tucson. Beneath the new sheetmetal, there are new wheels, interior elements, safety technology, and engines, We knew the Tucson would lose its 1.6-liter turbocharged engine and dual-clutch transmission in favor of a smoother 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder with a traditional automatic. However, we didn't know exactly how much the 2019 Tucson would cost. Now, Hyundai has released pricing as well as a full breakdown of trim levels and features.
The big news here is the addition of Hyundai's SmartSense safety technology on all trim levels. This includes forward collision-avoidance assist, lane keep assist, and driver attention warning. In addition to all of the safety tech, all Tucson trims include an electronic parking brake with auto hold and a seven-inch color touchscreen display audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Base Tucson SE models start at $23,200 with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder producing 164 horsepower and 151 lb-ft. Stepping up to the Value trim for $24,650 adds blind spot collision warning, proximity key with push-button start, Hyundai Blue Link, and an eight-way power driver’s seat. SEL trims and above get the larger 2.4-liter engine producing 181 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque starting at $25,600. All-wheel-drive is also available for $1,400. All Tucson trims, no matter which engine, send power out through a six-speed automatic.
Step all the way up to a Tucson Ultimate for $31,550 and you'll be treated to pedestrian detection, high beam assist, rain-sensing wipers, smart cruise control, a panoramic sunroof, LED map lights, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and an eight-inch navigation system. The 2019 Tucson is available now in dealerships, so if you like the new facelift, be sure to check it out. If not, go nab a leftover 2018 model with a big discount.
