Although the third-generation of the Hyundai Tucson was released in 2015, we have got an information that this crossover is about to hit the market as a 2019 Hyundai Tucson model. The new Tucson will bring some visual improvements and interior upgrades as well as some new engine options under its hood.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson, we can say that this crossover will undergo some minor, but significant changes and refreshments. The prototype of the next-generation Tucson has actually been caught tested recently. However, this camouflaged version could still let us notice some of the exterior features that will be slightly redesigned. The overall appearance will definitely reveal a better-looking and more modern SUV than the current model. Hyundai will improve the aerodynamics and suspension on this model, so you can hope for some greater performance, stability and handling. As far as we have been informed, most of the redesign will be found around the front fascia of the new Tucson. This model will get a new honeycomb mesh grille. The headlights with daytime LED running lights will probably be reshaped a bit. The bumper and the air intakes could be reshaped. In the back part of the vehicle, this vehicle will probably get a redesigned rear bumper, taillights and a new set of exhaust tips. The base model will probably stand on 17-inch alloy wheels. This model will be available in several trim levels, perhaps five, as it has been the case with the current one.
We must admit that there has been a lack of information about the interior, but the 2019 Hyundai Tucson will definitely not let you down in any way. In fact, as the next-generation crossover, this model will significantly improve the materials used to furnish the cabin and upgrade its technology. The interior of the new Tucson will be far more modern and luxurious than the one found inside the current model. The driver could get a new steering wheel. The dashboard and instrument cluster will be redesigned and you will find an 8.0-inch touch-screen display with the latest infotainment system. It will provide next-generation options such as navigation, satellite radio, Infinity audio system, Apple Car Play and Android Auto. Well, at least it should in higher trim levels. Safety systems and driver assist features will be provided as well.
Two options have been discussed when it comes to engine that the 2019 Hyundai Tucson will use under its hood. One of them, that will probably come as standard, uses a 1.6-liter turbo-four engine that should deliver 175 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. It will be mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The other one includes a naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter turbo-four with 164 horsepower. It will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
2019 Hyundai Tucson Release Date and Price
The 2019 Hyundai Tucson should probably be released by the end of 2018 or in early 2019. The price of this affordable crossover starts around $24,000.
