2020 Hyundai Tucson changes colors, not much else

Four new hues and expanded leather trim availability make up the changes

In our recent overview of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson detailing model-year changes, we called the compact crossover "Steady as bedrock." That characterization will apply to the 2020 Tucson as well, since Hyundai's made barely a change. Four colors get swapped out: Stellar Silver replacing Molten Silver, Magnetic Force replacing Coliseum Grey, Winter White replacing Dazzling White, and Cream White replacing White Pearl. The only other modification is leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob expanding availability down to the Sport trim. 

For 2019, Hyundai quietly rearranged the engine and transmission mix and the standard equipment. The entry-level SE and Value trims are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 161 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque. Above that, where there was once a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 175 hp and 195 lb-ft mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, there is now a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder with 181 hp and 175 lb-ft. shifting through a six-speed automatic. The 2.4-liter will power the SEL, Sport, Limited, and Ultimate trims. 

Pricing for the 2020 Hyundai Tucson lineup including the $1,095 destination charge is:

  • SE $24,445
  • Value: $25,895
  • SEL: $26,845
  • Sport: $28,945
  • Limited: $30,145
  • Night: $31,895
  • Ultimate: $32,795

Adding all-wheel drive to any trim adds $1,400 to the price. Standard safety equipment includes Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, and Driver Attention Warning. Helpful tech on the options menu includes a surround-view monitor, adaptive cruise control, and on the Sport, Limited, and Ultimate trims, a Qi wireless charging pad.
