2020 Hyundai Tucson: Engine Performance

The 2020 Hyundai Tucson has always maintained its swell-selling record in the segment of crossover SUVs. What can surprise many in this scenario is that Hyundai didn’t have to take much trend chasing or even trendsetting moves in order to achieve this level of success. It is only through an impressive performance and packaging of great value, that proved to be enough for the 2020 Hyundai Tucson to stay at the first row of popularity.

Sales Record

Apart from this the 2020 Hyundai Tucson also has a strong safety record, that falls under its long list of standard features that help it make a mark in the eyes of the prospective buyers. We say so because you’ll not find the styling of the 2020 Hyundai Tucson to be anything remarkably different from its fellow models like the Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester or Mazda CX-5.

Constituents of the 2020 Year Lineup

When we asked the Inland Empire Hyundai dealership if there was any significant changes done to the Hyundai Tucson model series for the year 2020, they informed us that except for the replacement and re-naming of the four paint colors, everything was continued from the 2019 model lineup.

The entire 2020 year lineup of the Hyundai Tucson reflects high-value trim models that truthfully justifies their respective price range. The trim models queue up in the ascending order of both price and features as SE, SEL, Ultimate, and Limited models.

The year 2020 Tucson doesn’t see any design changes as Hyundai has already updated its styling cues recently, so what you see is the echo of the same design that was there in the 2019 year lineup. However they all reflect some typical Hyundai styling like the angular placement of LED daytime running lights that bracket the front grille all making a well-defined approach for its tough crossover body.

Engine and Powertrain Variants

The 2020 Hyundai Tucson model series sees a 2.0-liter inline-4 engine at the base with a more powerful 2.4-liter version listed under the available options.

Hyundai allows the entire lineup range of 2020 Tucson to be driven with all-four-wheels though the standard setting is the front-wheel drive method.

The 2.0-liter inline-4 engine meets a 6-speed automatic transmission, to send its 161 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque to the set of wheels it is meant to be driven with. Acceleration with this powertrain is smooth with steering and brake responses predictable enough.

The upgradable 2.4-liter inline-4 engine that usually is chosen by most of the top trim buyers is able to make a decent 181 hp with 175 lb-ft of torque, after mating to the same transmission, but needless to say that this powerplant will deliver more grunting performance than the base one.

But irrespective of the engine power you prefer to choose for your 2020 Hyundai Tucson model, all of them ensures an impressive ride quality with appreciable handling characteristics

According to the Hyundai dealership in the Inland Empire to make things more congenial on the roads for the one who sits behind the wheels, Hyundai sets up a drive mode selector that can be switched between normal and sport mode so that the driving system can automatically stiffen up the steering and increase the downshift timings.
