2019 Hyundai Tucson Limited. FA conventional or continuously variable automatic transmission for the turbocharged engine would make the driving experience smoother. Hyundai should also consider making lane-departure warning and autonomous emergency braking available across the Tucson Limited lineup. Further, if the company doesn’t do it for model-year 2019, we would like the freshened 2019 version to adopt the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system from the 2018 Elantra and Sonata sedans. This would expand Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto support beyond Limited models.
It wouldn’t be hard to do either because Hyundai offers this setup on current Tucson Limiteds sold in other parts of the world, such as Australia. For its update, the 2019 Hyundai Tucson Limited included a lot of improvements both inside and out. The interior added a lot of new technology and updated the inside so we have a great, new model vehicle on our hands. Ever Since its initial release, the Tucson Limited model has experienced a rise in sales. With each improvement brought to the model the sales have been steadily going up. The popularity of the car has seen some slight and steady bumps so giving it an update like this one will help the car reach even greater sales and we can expect to see much better rates from the newest 2019 Hyundai Tucson Limited.
Unlikely, unless Hyundai brings Eco and Sport models even with the SE Plus and Limited by granting them Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Otherwise, the 2019 Hyundai Tucson Limited should return a more than competitive array of features. Standard on the SE would be a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, satellite radio, and cloth upholstery with a stain-resistant coating. Eco models would again add LED daytime running lights, fog lights, roof rack side rails, a power driver’s seat, and a throttle-quickening sport button. Sports would have the aforementioned 19-inch wheels, plus a hands-free power liftgate, blind-spot alert with rear cross-traffic detection, heated front seats, and keyless entry with pushbutton ignition.
Expect the 2019 SE Plus to return with all the Sport amenities but not with the turbo engine. It’ll again borrow many Limited-grade features but at lower cost, thanks to its less expensive powertrain. These include the 8-inch-screen infotainment kit with navigation and Android Auto and Apple Car Play, plus leather upholstery, fancier cabin trim, dual zone automatic climate control, power front passenger seat, upgraded Infinity-brand audio, rear air-conditioning vents, and other premium touches. The Night model can again be considered a 2019 Hyundai Tucson Limited Sport but with the blackened trim and wheels, plus a standard panoramic moon roof, alloy pedals, a perforated leather steering-wheel wrap, and front and rear cabin LED map lights.
Look for the 2019 Limited to again step up from the SE Plus with the turbo powertrain, plus exclusives such as LED low-beam headlights and LED tail lights. For 2019, Hyundai could seize the opportunity to blend some safety features between the SE Plus and Limited. For example, while the SE Plus comes standard with blind-spot and rear cross-traffic alerts, these driver aids were part of the $2,750 Limited Ultimate Package option. The package also included the panoramic moonroof, an LCD gauge cluster, ventilated front seats, and heated outboard rear seats. And it was the only way to equip a 2019 Hyundai Tucson Limited with autonomous emergency braking designed to mitigate a frontal collision with another vehicle or a pedestrian.
There are a few options for you to choose from when it comes to the powertrain of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson Limited. In fact, the SE base trim gets a direct-injection 2.0-liter inline-4 engine which produces 164 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. This drivetrain is matted to a traditional 6-speed automatic transmission, but consumes more fuel than other available setups. The Eco, Sport, and Limited trims us a different kind of setup under the hood. They will incorporate a more sophisticated offer with the direct-injection 1.6-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, giving us an output of 175 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque.
We assume that drivers are going to stick with the secondary option more as they provide better fuel efficiency and also a better overall driving experience. The ability to speed up to 60 mph has not changed for the 2019 Hyundai Tucson Limited. The previous model and the new one will have same rates when it comes to its 0-60 mph performance. A time of 7.4 seconds separates you from reaching 60 mph and the car can also achieve a top speed of 129 mph. When it comes to the fuel economy rating of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson Limited, the base version is perhaps the one with the worst performance.
The model does not have favorable rates with the base engine and with its basic offer. It only manages an EPA rating of 23 mpg city, 30 highway, 26 combined, while the all-wheel drive versions have a 21/26/23 mpg consumption rating. Things improve a bit for the upper trims which use a different kind of engine. The numbers go up to 25/30/27 mpg for the Sport and Limited models while the Eco manages 26/33/29 mpg. All-wheel drive versions are rated with 24/28/26 mpg or for the Eco version 25/31/27 mpg The new 2019 Hyundai Tucson Limited will earn the same safety ratings as its previous incarnation.
As this is a mere extension of the current generation of Tucson Limited model, it is safe to say that the car will earn all of the top safety ratings that it had with the previous model. The NHTSA has given it a top five-star rating, while the IIHS says that the model has earned a Top Safety Pick status. Unfortunately only the upper trim levels of the car get the advanced safety systems like the blind-spot monitors, lane change assist, and rear cross-traffic alert. While with the Ultimate Package you can get automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warnings, and backup sensors.
There are speculations that the release date for the 2019 Hyundai Tucson Limited will be in the summer of 2018. Don’t expect it to be released during the first and second quarter of 2018, it will probably be out by the end of the year. It appears that Hyundai has decided to increase the price of the 2019 Hyundai Tuscon. It is expected that the price is boosted by somewhere between 300 and 500 dollars. The starting price for the previous model amounted $23,595 for the base SE version. Other trims were priced accordingly, with the Eco trim coming at $25,045, the Sport trim priced with $26,795, while the range-topping Limited was $30,670, all listed as base MSRP.
If you wanted an all-wheel drive option an amount of $1,400 was added across the board. The model also included additional packages which will be available for this new version as well. The price for them will probably not change, so the Limited’s Ultimate Package will be available for an additional $2,750 and the SE’s Popular Package is offered at an added $750 but only with AWD. Perhaps the best option is the AWD Sport trim which frankly provides the best value for money as it is offered at $28,500, while a fully packaged Limited version will require an addition of $4,000 for a premium price.
