New for 2019

The refreshed 2019 Hyundai Tucson features a revised exterior design and a 2.4-liter I-4 replacing the 1.6-liter turbo-four. Additional active safety tech has been made available on the range-topping Limited trim and a new dash design is highlighted by a tablet-like center touchscreen.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2019 Hyundai Tucson is a compact crossover slotting above the subcompact Kona and the midsize Santa Fe. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional.

SE: The base Tucson SE comes standard with 60/40 split-folding rear seats, cloth upholstery, Bluetooth, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, six-way power adjustable driver's seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a rearview camera. A 164-hp 2.0-liter I-4 is standard on the SE and Value Edition.

Value Edition: Moving up to the Value trim adds an eight-way power driver's seat, heated front seats, keyless entry and start, and Hyundai's Blue Link telematics service.

SEL: Mid-level SEL models get a more powerful 2.4-liter I-4, 18-inch alloy wheels, and dual-zone climate control.

Sport: The Tucson Sport adds 19-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and tail lights, and LED daytime running lights.

Limited: Range-topping Limited models get navigation, an eight-speaker Infinity audio system, a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen, leather upholstery, and chrome grille accents and window surrounds.

Options include heated rear seats and a panoramic sunroof.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2019 Tucson comes standard with a 2.0-liter I-4 with 164 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque. From the SEL grade and above, the Tucson gets a 2.4-liter I-4 with 181 hp and 175 lb-ft. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard across the lineup.

The 2.0-liter base engine is the most efficient of the two options, with EPA fuel economy ratings of 23/30 mpg city/highway in front-drive guise and 22/25 mpg with all-wheel drive. Models with the 2.4-liter are less efficient at 22/28 mpg for front-drive variants and 21/26 mpg with all-wheel drive.

Safety

The NHTSA gave the 2019 Tucson a five-star overall safety rating (out of a possible five stars). The IIHS hasn't evaluated the 2019 Tucson yet. Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assist are standard across the lineup. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are standard on all but the base SE grade. Adaptive cruise control with stop and go function, pedestrian detection, high beam assist and driver attention warning are only available on the range-topping Limited trim.

Utility

The 2019 Tucson has 31.0 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats that can be expanded to 61.9 cubic feet.

What We Think

In a 2019 First Test we liked the Tucson's responsiveness and good steering. Its interior also looks pricier than it actually is and the infotainment system is intuitive.

However, the naturally aspirated 2.4-liter I-4 is slower than the outgoing turbo engine and its fuel economy is also near the bottom of the pack.  Rear seat legroom is on the tight side and cargo capacity is on the smaller end of the segment.

The 2019 Tucson placed fifth in a recent Big Test because of its inoffensive driving experience and mixed material quality.
