Are you ready for some big news about the 2020 Hyundai Tucson? Well, you’ll have to keep waiting. We expect to hear about 2020 pricing for the Tucson sooner than later, but the news for now is a shade more superficial — a few shades actually.

New for 2020 are four exterior paint colors: Stellar Silver takes the place of Molten Silver (it’s from space!), Magnetic Force takes over for Coliseum Grey (Magnets! Forceful ones!), Winter White replaces Dazzling White (Remember “Game of Thrones”? And how the last season definitely didn’t suck and the existential threat of permanent winter lasted all of three episodes?) and Cream White will take the spot of White Pearl (I don’t have a joke for this one).

The only other content change to the Tucson is the addition of a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob to Sport and higher trims. Otherwise, the Tucson still retains the same four-cylinder engines and six-speed automatic transmission. Standard and available safety features and optional headlights earned the 2019 Tucson a Top Safety Pick Plus from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and there are no changes in those areas for the 2020 model.

Hey, the 2019 version of the Tucson finished a solid third in our 2019 Compact SUV Challenge. Why mess with a good thing?

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
