Question Hello, Member Looking @ a 2019 Tucson

For those who have one, Do you like it? I'm looking at either a Sport or a Limited. Trading off my 2011 Honda CR-V. Thanks !

I don't have one but from reading some of the post here, some are not too happy with the fuel economy.

Awd takes curves very well and the car feels stable. Yes, mpg is in the bottom half of the segment, 19-21 city for me.

Fuel economy is terrible for a 4cyl with a six speed tranny!

I have only one real complaint and that is the fuel economy. Otherwise it does everything very well.

The fuel mileage seems to be improving as of late. This is my fourth Tucson of this generation.

The 2.0 is underpowered. The 1.6T and DCT is easily the best but the complainers got their way an killed it off in the Tucson line. I look for an eight speed transmission next year.

I would get the Ultimate. This year they decontented the Limited level, such as the heated steering wheel.

If I had to do it over, I would get the Santa Fe Ultimate. It has a wonderful heads-up display. better leather, memory seats and seat extenders like the late lamented Azera. That’s a big plus an long trips.

The electronic parking brake is a welcome upgrade.

Driving characteristics are otherwise great.

We just took delivery of our 2019 Tucson Ultimate after waiting 3 months for the right color combo. I really like it. Am worried a bit about the economy, but it’s my wife’s car and she’s just retired. The common mantra is that the Mazda CX-5 is best in class and has sports car-like handling. Right. I found the Mazda to feel cheap and dated compared with the 2019 Tucson. As for the handling, I think the Tucson kicks the Mazda’s butt. It feels very much like my BMW 3-Series wagon for rid3 and handling. The Mazda do not at all. Some peo0le don’t like the pod for the graphic interface, but everyone seems to be moving that direction. I kinda like it and it does NOT interfere with your view of the road.

I just finished detailing ours. Pics later.

Thumbs up

Thanks everyone for the replies, I really appreciate it ! As I look more into the trims of the Tucson I believe the Sport will suit our needs. On the gas mileage, I have a 2018 Nissan Frontier PRO-X so anything over 15mpg will be fantastic, LOL. To be honest on a good day our CR-V only gets 21mpg combined. I wish Hyundai offered the Aqua Blue color with tan interior, but sadly they don't. Anyone know how well the new AWD system does in the snow.

Yeah. Same here. And now my knees are killing me. First time for that. Ouch.








We've got a new grill and new wheels and tires lined up. Nothing outrageous, but we like them and we won't see ourselves coming and going.
