The 2019 received a wide range of updates, so the 2020 Tucson's changes are modest. Hyundai revamped the available colors for the exterior; a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob are standard on Sport trim levels and above.

Handsome exterior, straightforward dashboard design, agreeable driving demeanor.

Cons
Less cargo space than key rivals, mediocre fuel economy, powertrain warranty doesn't transfer to second owner.

A few high-end features trickle down to the new mid-range SEL Plus model for 2020. Previously only available on the top-spec Ultimate, the SEL Plus comes with a 4.2-inch color display located between the two analog gauges and a wireless charging pad for smartphones. The auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink is now standard on both the Limited and Ultimate models as well as a new orange interior accent kit that automatically is added to either trim if the Sunset Orange or Ultra Black exterior colors are chosen.

Pros
Standout styling, punchy turbo four, packed with features.

Cons
Tight cargo space, numb steering.
