Should I Buy the 2019 Hyundai Tucson?
Hyundai Tucson can be considered as a perfect SUV. You get everything you’d expect from a compact SUV. On one hand, Hyundai Tucson prices are comparatively lower than its rivals like Jeep. On the other hand, you get even more features for that price.
Don’t believe me? Jeep Compass Limited Plus is the top-tier variant from Jeep. Despite being a top variant, there’s a functionless button on the right side of the steering wheel. Likewise, there are no heated-seats! Whereas Hyundai Tucson, despite being more “affordable” than the Jeep Compass, comes with both working buttons and heated seats! That’s just an example. There are a lot of slight variations in terms of features.
However, Tucson does miss out on a few things. You won’t get a class-leading cargo volume or passenger space, but at this point, I’m just nitpicking. Tucson is still safe, solid, and convenient. It offers optional goodies like Apple CarPlay, a hands-free liftgate, and an array of advanced safety features.
I don’t know about you, but I am definitely more excited just reading about all the tech included in the 2019 Hyundai Tucson. If I was on the market shopping for a new SUV, Hyundai Tucson would be on my Top 5 SUV list.
