2020 Hyundai Tucson for Sale in Springfield, MA
There aren’t many values out there like the 2020 Hyundai Tucson. This well-rounded five-seater blends fine fuel efficiency, generous standard equipment, and modern technology with the longest powertrain warranty in the industry. It has a surprisingly low base MSRP among compact crossovers, yet its spaciousness, standard features, exceptional warranty coverage, and fuel economy help it rise above its rivals. Plus, it’s great-looking and comes in a palette of exterior colors that are anything but boring. This year, Hyundai has added a 3-year/36,000-mile free maintenance plan that covers oil and filter changes, multi-point inspections, and tire rotations.
Powertrains and Fuel Economy
There are six trim levels of the 2020 Hyundai Tucson: the SE, Value, SEL, Sport, Limited, and Ultimate. The base powertrain (found on the two lowest trims) is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine putting out 161 horsepower, paired with an efficient six-speed automatic transmission. The four higher trims upgrade to a 181 hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder, with the transmission staying the same. Front-wheel drive (FWD) comes by default, but all-wheel drive (AWD) is available on all trims. SE and Value trims equipped with FWD are rated by the EPA to get 23 mpg around town and 28 mpg on the highway; with AWD, that becomes 22 mpg city/25 mpg highway. On the SEL and higher, FWD models are EPA rated for 22 city/28 highway, while AWD versions take it down a tick to 21 city/26 highway.
Standard Features by Trim
Buyers of the SE will get a good list of standard equipment, highlighted by auto-on/off headlights, comfortable cloth seats, a rearview camera, an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and remote keyless entry. A 60/40 split fold-down rear seat and convenient two-level floor in the cargo area make the 2020 Tucson all the more versatile for transporting stuff. The Value adds heated side mirrors, roof rails, a power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support, heated front seats, and Proximity Key (which allows you to start the engine using the key fob) with push-button ignition. The SEL is upgraded with dual-zone automatic climate control (with ionizer) and a USB outlet for the back seat, while the Sport gets wireless device charging, a premium audio system with eight speakers, fog lights, a hands-free power liftgate with custom height settings, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and LED daytime running lights, headlights, and taillights. The Limited is set up for prime comfort and convenience with leather seating, side mirrors with integrated turn signals, chrome door handles, an eight-way power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, and a heated steering wheel, but the Ultimate earns its name with a panoramic sunroof, High Beam Assist, cooled front seats, heated rear seats, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
Safety and Technology
The base infotainment system is bigger and better than that of many competitors, with its 7-inch touchscreen, standard smartphone compatibility (both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), six-speaker audio system, and USB ports. More features – SiriusXM satellite radio, Blue Link Connected Car services, wireless device charging, and more – are added and the screen and music system are upgraded as the trim levels rise. The Ultimate trim receives an integrated navigation system.
Hyundai’s Smart Sense driver-assist technology suite is standard on all 2020 Tucsons, with features once again added to higher trim levels. The base trim gets lane keeping assist, forward collision-avoidance assist, and driver attention warning, and the Value, SEL, and Sport trims add blind-spot collision warning and rear cross-traffic alert. The Limited receives a 360-degree monitor, and the forward collision-avoidance assist system on the Ultimate is enhanced with pedestrian detection.
