Interior Comfort and Design

The sleekness of the exterior of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson sets it apart from larger SUVs around Hyattsville, but the cabin makes space a priority. There's nearly 40 inches of headroom for the two rows while the driver gets to enjoy 41.5 inches of legroom and the rear has 38.2 inches. Need to fill all the seats? The second row is wide so that passengers aren't packed like sardines, and the 31 cubic-foot space behind the second row is perfect for gym bags, groceries, and more. Of course, you can fold down that rear row to add 30.9 cubic feet of cargo space for a total of 61.9 cubic feet in the 2019 Tucson. Plus, the materials are high-quality, and stain-resistant seats, perfect for families, come standard in the compact SUV.

Performance and Efficiency

The compact exterior of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson allows the SUV to cut weight, which is most noticeable when you're behind the wheel. Less weight means less power necessary to get it going, so the engines, which still have plenty of power, can provide better efficiency. The standard engine gets up to 30 mpg highway, but it isn't quite as powerful as the larger four-cylinder, which itself provides 28 mpg highway. Those engines can tow trailers if you put a hitch on, and winter driving isn't as sketchy when you go with the all-wheel drive Hyundai Tucson near DC!


Tech and Safety

Every Hyundai Tucson has provided functional cabin layouts and versatile powertrain options, but none have been as smart as the 2019 Tucson. Sitting among the various premium cabin materials are tech systems that are easy to use without being obtrusive, and the infotainment system is the perfect example of this. Either a 7- or 8-inch screen sits in the dash, and you can use touch or your voice to operate the many systems it controls, like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other features for the modern world include wireless phone charging, a hands-free liftgate, and a mobile app for the remote start and unlock systems.

Many Beltsville drivers choose a Hyundai because they know their safety is a priority of the brand, and the 2019 Hyundai Tucson is the latest testament to this. It's a 2019 Top Safety Pick of the IIHS and earned a perfect five-star overall safety rating from the NHSTA. What is it that makes the 2019 Hyundai Tucson so safe. Well, beyond a sturdy frame and airbags in the cabin, the new Hyundai Tucson offers driver-assist features like:

  • High Beam Assist
  • Blind-Spot Collision Warning
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning
  • Driver Attention Warning
  • Surround View Monitor
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection
