New Hyundai Tucson 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Mazda CX-5-rivalling SUV gets more expensive

Hyundai Australia has increased the pricing of its current-generation Tucson mid-size SUV.

All variants are now $350 more expensive, with a Hyundai Australia spokesperson telling CarsGuide the company has “been absorbing exchange-rate pressures for some time but has now been forced to increase prices”.

The Tucson now ranges in price from $29,640 to $49,150 plus on-road costs (see full pricing table below), with its specification unchanged.

As such, the Mazda CX-5 rival is still available in four grades: entry-level Active, mid-range Active X and Elite, and flagship Highlander.

A 122kW/205Nm 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine is available in all grades bar the Highlander. It’s mated to either a six-speed manual (excluding the Elite) or a six-speed torque-converter automatic, and it sends drive to the front wheels only.

Buyers can also opt for a 136kW/400Nm 2.0-litre turbo-diesel unit in all four grades. It’s matched to an eight-speed torque-converter automatic and comes with all-wheel drive.

And then there’s the 130kW/265Nm 1.6-litre turbo-petrol engine in the Elite and Highlander grades. It’s also AWD only and is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
