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.

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