Specs at a Glance

Hyundai is known for offering consumers affordable vehicles that do not skimp on the latest features. Moving into 2020, they are offering up two great SUV choices. The compact Tucson gets a few tweaks but otherwise continues to be the same great vehicle it was last year. For the subcompact Kona, adaptive cruise control becomes available on the Ultimate trims. These well-received vehicles are taking everything consumers loved in 2019 into the new year.

High-Powered Performance

The Kona has two different engine options in 2020. They are the same as the prior year. Both the SE and SEL trims come with a four-cylinder engine that generates up to 147-horsepower. This is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Those looking for more power out of their Kona can go with the Limited or Ultimate trim level. These models are powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder that produces up to 175-horsepower and works well with the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The 2020 Tucson does not see any changes to its powertrain options either. Drivers can still get the SE and Value trim level equipped with the 2.0L version of the four-cylinder engine. This produces up to 161-horsepower. Underneath the hoods of the SEL, Sport, Limited and Ultimate models will be a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that generates 181-horsepower.

Sleek Appearance

Both the 2020 Kona and Tucson are sure to turn heads. One of the biggest changes the Tucson sees this year is in the available exterior paint colors. Consumers can now choose Winter White, Cream White, Stellar Silver, or Magnetic Force for their SUV. The Tucson is bigger than its Kona counterpart and features a dominating four-bar front grille. The Kona is designed to be a bit sleeker, with aerodynamic curves and a sporty feel.

Well-Designed Features

The interior of both the Kona and Tucson has been well-designed and user-friendly, and this is something that carries over to 2020. Both of these vehicles are compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. An easy-to-use 7" screen is also standard in both of these vehicles.

Standard safety features will continue to help these Hyundai SUVs stand out from the pack. Both have standard Lane Keeping Assist and a Driver Attention Warning. The Kona offers drivers standard automated emergency braking. Optional features for the Kona include automatic high beams. As for the Tucson, optional features include Smart Cruise Control, the Surround View Camera, and rain-sensing wipers.
