The prototype of the newest 2020 Hyundai Tucson has been spotted during its testing, and just from the first glance, we could conclude that it will bring many upgrades. First of all, the exterior will be refreshed with new front fascia while the cabin will get a new center stack. On the engine front, we don’t expect any large changes.

Engines and performances of the 2020 Hyundai Tucson

Under the hood of the upcoming 2020 Hyundai Tucson will be placed two types of engines as in the current model. So, the base unit is going to be a 2.0-liter inline-4 engine. It will be able to generate 164 hp and 151 pound-feet of torque. The engine will be coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission and there will be a choice between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations. Connected to front wheels, it will get 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The all-wheel drive model will be rated at 22 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.

Speaking of the external look, the 2020 Hyundai Tucson will keep up with its attractive and handsome styling. But this time, it will get a few changes.

The rear is also expected to be slightly revised. Furthermore, the new Hyundai will also receive some new designs of the alloy wheels.
