Hyundai announced U.S. pricing and range details of the facelifted 2019 Tucson, which is available at dealers nationwide.
The redesigned 2019 Tucson now comes with more advanced safety systems as standard, including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Collision Warning and Driver Attention Warning.
The new Tucson features new headlights and LED DRLs, a more characteristic cascading front grille, new front and rear bumpers, new wheel designs and redesigned taillights.
The biggest difference however is to be found inside. For the 2019MY, the Tucson is getting a new dashboard design that’s more in line with the brand’s latest models. A seven-inch infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and a free three-year subscription to Hyundai’s Blue Link services is offered as standard, while more expensive models get an eight-inch infotainment display.
The engine range is also revised, as Hyundai has ditched the 175hp 1.6-liter Turbo unit in favor of a 181hp 2.4-liter engine. Base models get a 2.0-liter engine with 164hp and 151 lb-ft. All models are fitted with a six-speed automatic transmission, while all-wheel drive is optional.
Prices for the 2019 Hyundai Tucson start from $24,245 (including a $1,045 freight charge) for the FWD 2.0-liter SE model. An extra $1,400 will get you all-wheel drive, while the top of the line AWD 2.4-liter Ultimate goes for $33,995.
