2020 Hyundai Tucson and 2019 Hyundai Tucson

Serving Lexington Park, MD

The Hyundai Tucson carries over mostly unchanged in 2020. In 2019, the Tucson received some notable changes, updates, and improvements. Some were trim-specific, but others stretched across the board. The 2019 Tucson got some changes and refreshments with updated styling inside and out and more features than before. All trim levels were equipped with more safety technology as well, including lane-keep assist and collision avoidance. The 2019 Tucson also got a change to its mechanical configuration with the elimination of the 1.6L turbo engine. Both the 2020 and 2019 versions of the Tucson are part of the third Tucson generation that launched in 2016. They both have a generous list of standard features, offering exceptional value at every trim level. All versions of the Tucson get a user-friendly infotainment system and upscale interior materials. The Tucson's innovative suspension system ensures a smooth and comfortable ride even over rough road surfaces. A total of six trim levels in the Tucson family gives you plenty of options.
