Hyundai Tucson Performance

2019 Hyundai Tucson

Previous versions of this Hyundai subcompact SUV offered three engine choices, but things are more streamlined for the 2019 version, which offers a pair of engines to choose from. The 4-cylinder found as the standard engine on the base trim produces 161 horsepower and is linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission. 

Enjoy increased power on higher trims of the Tucson, with a 2.4L 4-cylinder producing 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque for a sporty, engaging drive. All-wheel-drive is an optional feature on all trim levels. With the all-wheel-drive system in the Tucson, the power will be sent to the wheels with the best traction. A 50/50 power split between front and rear axles can be locked in if you prefer.

The transmission is capable of adapting to your driving habits. If you accelerate quickly, the transmission will move shift points to maximize power. It can also handle preset shift patterns for specific weather conditions, uphill climbs, or performance driving.

You spend a lot of time inside your vehicle, so it's important to be comfortable while doing so. The Tucson is ready for the challenge. With front legroom of 41.5 inches, those seated in the driver or front passenger seats will have plenty of room to stretch out. Leather-seating surfaces come standard on the Limited and Ultimate trims, with heated front seatsstandard on the Value trim and above.
