Expert Review

7.2

Overall Rating


Priced $24,750 for the base trim, the pricing goes all the way to $33,100 for the top trim. The Tucson is offered int 2 drive train options and 2 different engine options (a 2 liter inline 4 and a 2.4 liter inline 4). The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission unit. Hyundais have always proved themselves as one of the most user-friendly and practical vehicles on sale. The 2020 Tucson is expected to follow suit. In this extremely competitive segment, the Tucson is placed against the likes of the Nissan Rogue and the Buick Encore. Both of which are very capable in themselves.

2020 Hyundai Tucson Features

7.9/10

SUVs are one of the most selling car segments available in the market today. With fierce competition to face, the 2020 Tucson outshines the competition with its driveability and availability of both front and all-wheel drive options. Available in 6 different trim levels, the SUV is comfort-oriented and performs with precision on the road.

We recommend

Being a well-wisher of the car world, the 2020 Hyundai Tucson is nothing less than a perfect family SUV. Out of 6 different trim levels available with all 6 running on both all-wheel and rear-wheel drive trains, the 2020 Tucson holds its best self in the SEL trim. We recommend you to get the 2020 Tucson SEL for its tech-rich cabin and features such as dual-zone automatic climate controls, a rear-seat USB port, heated front seats, and SiriusXM satellite radio. You also get the 18-inch tire option in the SEL trim which makes the SUV look a bit more classier. In addition to this, the Tucson is also filled up to the brim with safety tech.

2020 Hyundai Tucson Engine and Performance

8.0/10

The Tucson SUV comes in two different engine options for 2020. These options include a 2 liter inline 4 engine and a 2.4 liter inline 4 engine. Topping the charts for its ride and drive quality, the 2020 Tucson is amazing on the road with turns and curves proving to be pleasure worthy. The SUV proved to be competent on the road but definitely does feel sporty. The inline 4 under the hood pumps enough excitement but lags behind when compared likewise SUVs such as the Rogue S and Buick Encore

In terms of outright performance, the engine feels pretty relaxed and poised even at higher RPMs. The power delivery also feels linear and consistent throughout the rev range. The maximum torque figure of 150 lb-ft is achieved at 4500 RPM which makes it a little tiring to navigate through traffic. Having said that, get on the highway once and Tucson is in a league of its own. It can cruise at 100 miles an hour all day, every day. The engine feels fairly relaxed and the cabin becomes very quiet and the vehicle feels very comfortable.

As far as the gearbox is concerned, the 6-speed automatic unit manages to run through all the gears with ease. The gearbox feels at ease in city traffic with absolutely no jerks at all. In addition to this, the overdrive gear makes the Tuscon an absolute bliss to cruise in. The engine is relatively clatter-free and does not drone even at constant highway speeds.

Competitors in the segment produce less power with the same engine running the mill. The 2020 Buick Encore, although it has a less powerful 1.4 liter inline 4 but produces considerably equal performance specs as the 2020 Nissan Rogue.

Acceleration 

We have definitely driven many faster-accelerating cars in the segment. Performing on the top of its gut, the 2020 Tucson SUV goes 0 to 60 miles per hour in 8.8 seconds. The 2020 Tucson has a quarter-mile time of 16.8 seconds. According to modern standards, this might not feel very impressive, however, once you take into consideration the size and dimensions of the Tucson, it starts to make sense. 

2020 Hyundai Tucson SUV 0-60 MPH In just 8.8 sec

Weighing in at just a shade under 3500 lbs, the Tucson isn't exactly lightweight. After taking into consideration the weight, the 8.8 seconds 0-60 timing starts to mean something. Not that you would be running your Tucson on the drag strip anytime soon but it takes 16.8 seconds to do the same. The 2-liter inline-4 motor can't be categorized as a "beast" but it gets the job done.

With acceleration not being its best suite, the 2020 Tucson still performs better than the competitors in the market. The SUV is faster by about 0.1 seconds than the Rogue and about 0.5 seconds then the Encore SUV. None of these vehicles are meant of performance, however, they are pretty impressive when it comes to other aspects of owning a family vehicle.

Ride and Handling

In terms of how it glides on the road, the Tucson SUV definitely turns heads because of its acceleration. Fastest of the lot, the 2020 Hyundai Tucson is built for comfort and reliability while keeping it relevant to the present day SUV market. It might not be "quick", however, it is the quickest in the competition. Hyundai has done a brilliant job in keeping the body roll away from the Tucson SUV while a perfectly sized steering and great power to weight ratio keep it smooth and easy all the way. 

2020 Hyundai Tucson SUV Front View

The ride quality and elegant and stable. Even at triple-digit speeds, the Tucson doesn't feel unstable or bouncy. The weight of the vehicle definitely helps the cause. Having said that, in case you want to quench your thirst for adrenalin, you might let yourself down. Take quick corners and you'd find yourself floating all over the place.

Braking

Work could be tedious but if you don’t put a break, it is going to take you nowhere. So is the case with the braking mechanism of the 2020 Tucson. Being a very crucial part of the process, the 2020 Hyundai Tucson comes equipped with 12-inch rotors in the front and 11.9-inch rotors in the back. The Tucson comes to a complete rest from 60 miles per hour in 124 feet.

2020 Hyundai Tucson SUV Front Brake is 12 in.

While these brakes might not be the largest, they do a good enough job of getting around 3500 lbs to a complete rest. As expected from a vehicle of this category, the brakes are not vented, cross-drilled or slotted. These types of brakes help in better heat dissipation, however, until you decide to slide the Tucson around corners, you won't need these brakes.

Competitors in the market perform better than the Tucson in terms of braking which definitely affects the safety features of both the SUVs. The Nissan Rogue takes less distance to come to a stop from 60 miles per hour. The exact braking figures of the Buick are not available but it is expected to be in the same bracket.

2020 Hyundai Tucson Fuel Economy

7.0/10

For the power figures it produces, the 2020 Tucson is not so friendly when it comes to fuel economy. The SUV runs for 22 miles in a gallon of fuel in the city while it can go for 25 miles on the highway. It has a combined fuel economy of 23 miles per gallon. These numbers are definitely better than full-sized SUVs however, they might feel a little disappointing once you take a look at the figures of other vehicles in the segment.

2020 Hyundai Tucson Interior

8.2/10

Feature Rich is an understatement for the 2020 Tucson. European design elements with best in class features and a user-friendly interface make the 2020 Tuscan's interiors hard to resist. A comfortable seating posture with infotainment controls on the steering wheels makes the Tucson SUV a perfect car for the present market.

How comfortable is the Hyundai Tucson?

The 5 seaters Hyundai Tucson is built for long road drives with comfort and precision. Enough legroom and headroom keep the occupants in place with comfort in the 2020 Tucson SUV. Beige upholstery with silver inserts adds much-needed plush to the cabin. The front seats are adjustable up to 12 ways and perform their duties well. 

2020 Hyundai Tucson Front Seats 

Even the rear seats offer plenty of comfort, space, and luxury. The tall and wide body design makes seating for three people in the back seats a breeze, even on longer journeys. The transmission tunnel isn't very intrusive which leaves enough room for everyone's feet. The panoramic sunroof eats up into the headroom, but it won't be a deal-breaker.

In terms of space, rivals in the market have done a great job too. With Nissan Rogue being the roomiest one, the Tucson is the most comfortable of them all. Most of these SUVs can carry five people with ease even on long journeys. However, the relatively narrow cabin of the Buick Encore might make it a little difficult to carry three people in the back seat especially on long drives.

Infotainment

When it comes to handling the infotainment duties, the Tuscon is equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen unit. The screen is pretty bright and vibrant which makes the screen visible even under direct sunlight. So, if you want, you can have your sunroof open and you'd still be able to see what's on your infotainment screen. The same cannot be said for some of the other vehicles in the segment. Even some cars from a much higher price bracket fail to pass this test.

2020 Hyundai Tucson Infotainment Screen

The Tucson is also offered as standard with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. This makes smartphone integration absolutely seamless. The system is also equipped with internet radio which allows you to listen to any music from anywhere in the world. To add to that, you can also split the screen into two which allows you to use navigation while going through your playlist. Some of the prominent features of the infotainment system are-

  • Steering-wheel mounted audio controls
  • 1st row LCD monitor
  • Smart device integration
  • Integrated roof antenna
  • Trip odometer
  • Retained accessory power
  • 3 12V DC power outlets S
  • Cruise control

Cargo Capacity

The 2020 Tucson is not the most practical when it comes to cargo-hauling capacity. Second-best among its competitors, the 2020 Hyundai Tucson has a cargo capacity of 31 cubic feet. Space is expandable up to 61.9 if you put the third row down. 22 standard size carryon bags can fit easily in the space with the third row down and 7 bags can be fitted even with passengers sitting in the third row. 

The relatively boxy shape of the car makes it quite easy to arrange items in the cargo area. Even taller items can fit with ease. However, the high load height makes it a little difficult to lift heavy stuff over. The cargo area also has a couple of hooks that can be used to hang grocery bags and other items. Underfloor storage is quite limited.

2020 Hyundai Tucson SUV Cargo Volume is 31 cu ft.

The 2020 Nissan Rogue has the roomiest cargo space of 39.3 cubic feet with the third row up followed by 18.8 cubic feet in the 2020 Buick Encore. Both the Hyundai and Nissan have a decent amount of cargo volume behind the second row. Enough to carry a weekend's stuff for a whole family. However, the same cannot be said for the Buick. It is actually pretty bad when it comes to practicality in terms of cargo space.

Interior Features

The interior of the Tucson is filled with modern-day features and tech. however, the highlight is how well the interiors are laid out, which makes it a joy to use, because of which there's next to no learning curve to fluently operating the infotainment of this new-gen Hyundai. Some of the features of the 2020 Hyundai Tucson include:

  • Premium cloth upholstery
  • Manual driver and passenger fore/aft adjustment
  • Front center armrest
  • Metal-look interior accents 
  • Rubber front and rear floor mats
  • Plastic trunk lid/rear cargo door
  • Front bucket seats

2020 Hyundai Tucson Exterior

2.5/10

City friendly styling with features of a full-fledged SUV, the 2020 Tucson exteriors are stylish and modern in its stance. The usual Hyundai grille introduces the SUV to the admirer with LED DRLs on either side followed by a couple of fog lamps and air vents. A creased up bonnet gives a high stance to the machine while creases on the other side define the side profile. Raising from the front fenders, the crease moves all the way along the A and B pillar and joins the tail lamps on the rear. Speaking of the rear, the SUV defines subtle and smooth while keeping the aesthetics balanced. A rear lip spoiler and skid plates are the defining exterior characteristics of the SUV.

Agree or not, the 2020 Hyundai Tucson is definitely the best looking SUV out of the lot here. It holds a mark of rugged styling and masculine design elements all the way through the exteriors.

2020 Hyundai Tucson Competition

8.0/10

2020 Hyundai Tucson VS 2020 Nissan Rogue S

With its generations of experience in the market, the Hyundai Tucson is no stranger to the American soil and has established itself as a capable crossover in this highly competitive segment. For the price Hyundai charge for the Tucson, the features it offers are tremendous. Aesthetically speaking, Tucson is definitely much more pleasing than any other competitor in the market. Priced almost in the same bracket, both the SUV inherit the same engines but the Rogue creates less power than the Tucson. If you are looking for a trusted SUV with history to back it up, Tucson is definitely the option. Get the Rogue for its unique styling.

2020 Hyundai Tucson VS 2020 Buick Encore Preferred

The Encore may be named as an official road partner for an off-roading race but it is miles away from being one.

A comfortable ride in a comfortable cabin with roomy cabin space, the 2020 Tucson is well priced and offers a host of features. Get the Tucson and you won't be disheartened.
