Review: 2019 Hyundai Tucson Ultimate – Part 5

I’ve come to the end of my review of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson Ultimate. And it was very familiar and comfortable in a lot of ways because of the fact that I have the 2016 model. For the most part, Hyundai has taken a good vehicle and evolved it to be mostly better. The only exception to that is the fuel economy which was 11.9 L/100 KM in mixed city and highway driving which is more than I get from the 2016 model that I own by about 1 L/100 KM. That’s due to the new engine/transmission combo that’s in the 2019 version. And to be frank, that may deter some shoppers who want the fuel economy that some competitors bring to the party. But in my opinion that shouldn’t stop you from going to your local Hyundai to have a test drive as there’s a lot inside the Tucson Ultimate that makes up for the fuel economy. Mainly, it packs a lot in at a good price which is why you see a lot of them on the road. And this is another reason why you see a lot of Tucsons on the road:

Hyundai finished third in the JD Power Initial Quality Study. It’s not the first time they have been in the top three. And given the experience that I had with the Tucson this week, it won’t be the last.

If you want to cross shop it, the Mazda CX-5, the Ford Escape, the Honda CR-V, the Toyota RAV4, and the Kia Sportage are clear competitors to look at. But as I mentioned before, there’s a lot inside the Hyundai Tucson that makes it a better choice than anything that I just mentioned.

The 2019 Hyundai Tucson Ultimate goes for $37,999 before freight and taxes. But you can get a Hyundai Tucson for $25,599 to start. If you want compact SUV that comes with a lot in the box on a number of fronts, you should take a good look at the Hyundai Tucson as it may be perfect for you.
