2019 Hyundai Tucson: Performance and Reliability
August 27 09:43 2019 Print This Article

The 2019 Tucson, rolling into the market yard as yet another SUV from Hyundai, does have several points to boast about. But what we wanted to check on, was its score of performance and reliability. The dealership staff at the Petaluma Hyundai showroom who assisted us in exploring the 2019 lineup of Hyundai Tucson through test drives, gave us a lengthy list of reasons in support if this model, but we wanted to confirm all those words in the real world, and our test drives did bring us back with a positive note.

Feature Enhancements

When it comes to achieving the desired level of performance and reliability, a vehicle needs to have the relevant mechanisms installed under its hood, while a strong built frame is required to cage the entire setup within. But even then, things don’t round up, unless a vehicle moving on the roads is protected with ample safety features and some necessary technological support. Knowing this well, Hyundai has equipped the 2019 edition of its SUV model series Tucson with a new more powerful and efficient engine, and new technologies that includes a handful of advanced safety gears.

The 2019 Hyundai  Tucson, now packs in its Value and SE trims the power and performance of a 2.0-liter inline-4 engine, whileunder the hoods of its SEL, Sport, Limited, and Ultimate models dwells a 2.4-liter inline-4 engine.

The entry-level trims of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson still run on a 161-horsepower making 4-cylinder engine that is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. But for 2019, Hyundai has decided to replacethe earlier turbo-4 engine with a non-turbo 2.4-liter inline-4 one that makes 181 hp, after being  coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission again.

Performance and Reliability

Every trim of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson lineup can be seen making good use of the power they derive from their respective engine choices and serving up a consistently appealing ride.Between the drivetrain choices of front-wheel and all-wheel drives, models that are powered by the 4-cylinder engines show up with slightly more power than the rest of the models in the lineup.As a crossover SUV, the 2019 Hyundai Tucson delivers a smooth acceleration and a pleasant ride.

Our test drive with the 2019 Hyundai Tucson at the Petaluma Hyundai dealer showroom, brought us back with the notion that choose any configuration of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson, it will handle equally well with its all predictable moves that almost reads the mind of the driver.

Hyundai takes care of its reliability aspect by installing enough struts in the front while the presence of a multi-link suspension placed at the rear give the Tucson models the firmness on which you can rely during every difficult move.

Additionally, the contribution of the 19-inch wheels, in tune with the softer tires that come with tall-sidewallcan’t be overlooked.Hyundai has also equipped the2019 Tucson models with a drive-mode selector that adds up the required amount of weight to the steering helping thedownshifts quicken up while the timely application of a switch can lock the splitting up of torque which is required to boost up the low-speed traction especially on slippery terrain.

All these build up the 2019 Hyundai Tucson as one of the most reliable and performance oriented crossover this year.
