Smaller size than rivals
Top tech reserved for Limited model

By:

The 2020 Hyundai Tucson ranked #9 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Tucson has a score of 7.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Relaxed ride
Good predicted reliability rating
Solid list of standard technology
Long warranty

Cons
Uninspiring engine options
Lower fuel economy estimates than rivals
Below-average cargo space

By: 
usnews.com

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.

Pros
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.

The 2020 Kia Sorento comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic, 6-speed shiftable automatic.Lightly refreshed bumpers and exterior lighting.EX Sport and SX Limited trims dropped.

PROS
Convenient size should fit many families
Ample feature content for the money
Stylish and quiet interior
Extra-long warranty coverage

CONS
Less cargo space than other three-row models
Third-row seat is strictly for kids
Lackluster acceleration even from the V6 engine

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2020 Kia Sorento skimps on third-row seating, but in all other respects it’s a more than respectable crossover SUV.

Pros
Upmarket feel inside and out
Terrific ride quality
Responsive, natural steering
Strong value and warranty
Solid, quiet feel

Cons
Second row sits too low
Don’t bother with the base engine
Mediocre fuel economy

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Changes are minimal on the 2020 Kia Sorento. There are modest styling updates front and rear, and Kia has consolidated the trim levels and packaging on V-6 models. The ritzy SX Limited and its lofty price are gone, but the one-step-down SX provides most of the important content. The standard navigation system on SX models now includes an integrated modem that allows you to control certain vehicle functions remotely and can notify you if you inadvertently leave a kid in the back seat.

Pros
Simple interior layout, agreeable driving experience, seating for seven in a mid-size body.

Cons
Difficult-to-access third row, numb steering, some safety features limited to upper trims.
