The 2019 Audi A4 to be Unveiled in Detroit

Published

on

The newest 2019 Audi A4 will be officially unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show. But it is still not completely clear what the model brings . Luckily we have managed to find out all sorts of leaked information related to this model.

All in all, the next generation A4 is going to continue the line of rebuilding. Furthermore, their approach remains evolutionary and not at all revolutionary. The usual way of updating that Audi has is to always left you with only two possible choices. Either you love it or you hate it. The same will go for the upcoming A4 vehicle.

The newest 2019 Audi A4 is certainly a car which you will either love or hate. If you have expected it to be a revolutionary model that will account for many new exasperating changes, then you will not like it so much.

On the other hand if you are a fan of a more subdued update, than the A4 is the vehicle for you. Audi continues in the same manner. That means making changes suitable for an update rather than a new generation model. The vehicle is still very much suitable and looks good as it updates in just the right places.

The 2019 Audi A4 Interior Updates

The interior of the car is where the most changes happen. They have updated the infotainment and also added new, modern gadgets while also dealing with the comfort of the car. The important factor is that the interior has gained a lot more changes than the exterior. It has made this car one of the more comfortable Audi models. And that is speaking a lot.

The interior will also benefit from the dimensions growth as the model will feature a lot more interior space. The exterior, on the other hand, will merely have any updates. It will simply add some sharper corners. This will make the model a bit more aggressive. And with the new shape, it will be a bit more imposing as well.

As far as the powertrain goes, the 2019 Audi A4 will feature the standard slew of engines. This will give you a lot of versatility. But we are still not sure which engines will crossover to the American market. All of them are going to be available for the Euro versions. But there might be a separate one offered for the US fans.

All in all, the release date will probably be unveiled along with the car in Detroit. Nevertheless, we have managed to make a review beforehand to get you ready for the unveiling.

When is the Release Date of the 2019 Audi A4 Expected?

The latest news about the 2019 Audi A4 states that the model is going to be unveiled at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show.  But some sources have unveiled the possible release date by mistake. And it appears that we are looking at a release in 2018.

More precisely the model will gain its release somewhere around the second or third quarter of the year. Maybe even somewhere in between. All in all, the company will make it clear in Detroit. We expect some other announcements then as well.

2019 Audi A4 Price Details

They revealed pricing for the 2019 Audi A4 and all of the three trims with all of the shifting options will become available once the release date is established. The new generation models will get a minor tweak compared to the outgoing version. But it is still an acceptable increase when we look at it.

The FWD S tronic models start with the Premium priced $36,000, the Premium Plus is $39,200 and the Prestige is offered for $45,500. Models equipped with a Quattro S tronic will be offered for $40,500 for the Premium, $43,700 for the Premium Plus and $50,000 for the Prestige. Lastly, the Quattro manual models are sold for $40,500 Premium, $43,700 Premium Plus and $50,000 Prestige.

The Design of the 2019 Audi A4

The 2019 Audi A4 is instantly recognizable as an A4 model. This is mainly thanks to the scarce redesign of the exterior. But it is not a bad thing. In fact, this is the successful formula that Audi has been following in recent years. The shape may have not changed, but the model is coming with some sharper angles and lines. This is the way the recent Q7 and R8 models have been made. Besides making this model larger, they also help it get better aero. This will ultimately lower the drag coefficient to 0.23.

The front end of the car got some new and fresh looking headlamps to go along with the new grille which is also the part of the new car. The grille and the lights look shorter while the headlamps got a different kind of a pattern which extends towards the fenders. The newly made hood combines with the mentioned elements and make the whole thing more aggressive.

The 2019 Audi A4 Rear Updates

The rear has also been updated in a similar manner as the bumper is updated and changed and the taillights also getting a similar treatment as the front ones. The bumper is shorter and the trunk lid is slimmer and helps make the rear end look significantly bolder. Even with some changes to the side skirts, the profile of the car has remained almost identical to the outgoing car.

Besides thigs model, they have also been updating the Avant A4 car. It will differ from the base version by adding the same style updates but making the roof feel much sportier. The wagon version is not going to be able to have the same kind of aerodynamic parameters as the sedan did but will manage to get to around 0.26.

The Avant will also add LED and matrix LED headlamps which are offered as optional for both versions of the 2019 Audi A4 car. Maybe the changes are not as spectacular as you have expected them to be but they will do the trick.

Interior Modifications and Changes

The interior of the 2019 Audi A4 is where all the action happened. In fact, this is where the designers made much effort to refresh the car which has been looking very much dated, compared to the Mercedes moles, for example. They did keep a familiar layout that Audi cars are known for but they managed to make the dash and the center stack much cleaner. The infotainment controls are closer to the center stack and the biggest changes is the addition of a 8.3-inch color display.

The designers also took some cues from the Audi Prologue concept and fitted them inside the A4 vehicle. Namely the steering wheel has been transferred from there and also the MMI controls. The shifter is the same as in the A8 model and the controls are brought down so they could be reached easily. Also the changes have been made for the door panels as the added material makes things a lot more smoother and premium looking. The tactically positioned aluminum inserts are very helpful in achieving this.

Thanks to the improved dimensions, the interior of the 2019 Audi A4 has class leading roominess. It boasts the longest cabin out of all sedans in the segment and also offers plenty of shoulder room as well.

Some standard new features are added LED lighting on the inside with new atmosphere color choices, a new interface for the automatic climate control and lightweight seats. Included this time is navigation, WiFi, LTE connectivity touch capability, and free-text search function. There are also optional head up display features as well as Audi’s virtual cockpit which you may choose and add here.

Drivetrain Improvements and Specs for the 2019 Audi A4

The improved engine lineup will certainly benefit the 2019 Audi A4 car. The Euro version will still have a choice of three gasoline and four diesel engines. The starting model is a 1.4-liter TFSI which makes 148 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Then comes the 2.0-liter TFSI which is available in two variants either making 187 horses and 236 pound-feet or 248 horsepower and 273 pound-feet.

Then come the diesel options with the 2.0-liter four-banger and a 3.0-liter V-6 ones. There are two variants of the four-cylinder version and it makes 148 horsepower and 236 pound-feet or 184 horsepower and 295 pound-feet. The V-6 model can generate 215 horsepower and 295 pound-feet or 268 horses and 443 pound-feet, depending the version as well.

For now there are no mentions about which model is going to be untitled in America, since the release date in the US is a bit further away, but our bet is that it will come with a 2.0 TFSI or the 2.0 TDI one.

Finally, the transmission choices will come to S tronic, Tiptronic and manual gearboxes and the S tronic transmission is available for the front-wheel-drive models.

0-60 mph and Top Speed

With the improvements made to the engines of the 2019 Audio A4 come some improved specs in regards to acceleration. The model is now capable of reaching 0-60 mph in 6.6 seconds approximately, while the top speed is limited to 130 mph.

Fuel Economy Improvements and Stats

There are no exact details to confirm the fuel efficiency of the 2019 Audi A4 for now. Especially for the American market models. As far as some recently announcements said, the 2.0-liter TFSI is supposed to return with a 49 mpg on the highway. They are adding a new consumption method for it. The smaller 1.4 TFSI will probably make 48 mpg. And the 2.0 TDI, is going to have a 21% improvement compared to before, which comes to 63.6 mpg. The exact details will probably drop after the showcasing in Detroit.

Changes in the Dimensions

The size of the 2019 Audi A4 has been updated and it will gain more roominess on the inside making the whole setup even nicer. The length of the car has grown a whole inch, amounting to a total of 186.1 Inches.

The wheelbase added 0.6 inches which will amount to 111 Inches in total. The height is the part which has been left intact and will remain at 56.2 Inches and the width 72.5 Inches. The changes made will also affect the weight of the car and will help it decrease 33.1 pounds. This is going to help the car perform better. It will also gain improved fuel economy which will be paramount in dealing with the rivaling cars.

Safety Measures for the 2019 Audi A4

Safety is still an important part of the 2019 Audi A4. But details about the improvements are still not available. The most that we have been hoping to get is that they are going to transfer current roster of equipment with some appropriate improvements as well.

Autonomous driving features are rumored to be added here and they may be one of the innovations that Audi cars are going to have in the future. This is a prosperous car which might benefit from adding those and it will certainly help having it. The newest safety equipment will be made public soon.

What About Other Cars in the Segment?

Even with a smallish upgrade to the 2019 Audi A4, this car still remains a contender. But the cars that are featured here are used to the high level of competition which this segment demands.

So models like Cadillac ATS and the Mercedes Benz C-Class. The featured German competitors are going to represent the main focus in the segment like they always do. So needed improvements for the A4 were perhaps plentiful. But even with this kind of an offer, we see the car as a tight competitor in the segment. It is also a vehicle which will oppose these models in a very strong way.

Latest Details about the 2019 Toyota Tacoma Release Date

With the announcement that the 2019 Toyota Tacoma is coming, there were many people who immediately felt excited about the prospect of getting this vehicle. But this is not a new-generation model, this is merely an update. This news has been confirmed recently. It states that we are looking at a model which should upgrade the current design to something new.

With the rising prospect of rivaling cars, the Tacoma needed a change. Both Chevy and GM have upgraded their own vehicles, so it was necessary for Toyota to do the same.

After establishing what they needed to do, the next thing to look out for is the release date. The 2019 Toyota Tacoma is going to arrive by the end of 2018. It is a perfect introduction in the next model year and this car aims to give you everything that the previous car lacked.

We do know that suspension tuning has been upgraded and that we got ourselves a new transmission. Other people would also appreciate the completely restyled interior which is also getting a lot of upgrades.

2019 Toyota Tacoma Price Details

The newest price range for the 2019 Toyota Tacoma is more or less the same as it is now. Even with a whole range of updates to the Taco, it is still not going to be so much overpriced. This car is aimed to face the rivals and it is not going to do so by raising the price.

The base MSRP of the current model is $20,765, and it will stay in the near vicinity of it. They are updating the interior, which is where most of the money goes to. However, they are not planning to completely interfere with the vehicle’s design. All in all, other models that came out form Toyota with their own updates were treated to a similar way of redesigning. So why not give the 2019 Toyota Tacoma the same makeover.

The same kind of trims are also making a comeback, but unfortunately there is no official pricing. There is a big possibility that we also get similar prices for those trim models. So the base trim is still the SR while the mid one being the SR5. Next in line comes the TRD Sport, then TRD Off-Road and finally there is the range topping Limited model.

Rumors about the 2019 Toyota Tacoma

The rumors about the 2019 Toyota Tacoma started at the latest Detroit Auto Show. There was actually a lot of fuss surrounding it back then as they only released a teaser image. It did not show the car in such a massive way. In fact the pictures were really bleak and you could hardly tell what was going on there. Sometime later, the rumors gained some more weight when the company released two new teaser images.

Again, we were not really sure if we were dealing with a new generation model or an update. Even though most of us were expecting the former one. Finally, all the rumors were put to rest when the official teaser video appeared. It depicted the car in more light. The first official information also came, and they all said that the car is gaining an update. It helps advance the car in a massive way and brings us the new model which will far more competitive compared to now.

Newest Exterior Changes for the 2019 Toyota Tacoma

Based on the first pictures that came out of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma vehicle, it seems pretty cool. The photos that were released depict a very nice looking car which seems very exciting for this kind of a model and has certain updates that extend its use.

The changes featured here include a newly updated front fascia which has a new bold looking grille as its primary feature. The lower air intakes are changed as well and there is also the widened stance which the vehicle has going on for it thanks to some wider fenders.

The tail end of the car has the same widened look. The fenders are wider and the body flairs are colored with a matching color. The tailgate also has a very sharp looking. TACOMA strap which is placed along the lower edge. The rear is also defined with some new and sharp accent lines. Finally, there is a completely new set of wheels which have been redesigned.

They are alloy and feature a new look which goes with this new look of the vehicle quite well. So, it is not much but it is just enough and the vehicle gains quite a lot with the given changes which have been made for this new update.

Newest Size and Dimensions News

The newest 2019 Toyota Tacoma is not changing the size. All of you who have been hoping to see a change in terms of size and hoped that this was a new-generation model, well we are sorry to disappoint you. Yet this is nothing to be disappointed about.

This vehicle is not going to grow because it does not need to. The dimensions are pretty good and are more than appropriate for the current Tacoma. The full length of the car stands at 212.3 inches while the wheelbase is 127.4 inches.

We are also going to get the same width and height, namely 75.2 inches and 71.6 inches, respectively. The interior of the vehicle has a passenger volume of 100 cu ft, giving you enough room to enjoy the ride. They still didn’t define the curb weight. But if we look at the previous model it could be somewhere close to 4661 lb that the vehicle has now.

Is the 2019 Toyota Tacoma Updating the Colors?

The newest about the color variants of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma is not really clear. The thing is that they should go with some new additions. But they are yet to confirm them. For now there are no discontinuations made. So we can expect the same set of color choices that we had the last time to continue.

This also means that you will be familiar with the current choices but will have to wait a bit longer to see what they decide to add.

How Does the 2019 Toyota Tacoma Interior Change?

The interior of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma has gone through most of the changes. First of all, the now driver orientated instrument panel has a handlebar design theme. They have updated the materials and made them much softer which you can see on the dash and the center console. This actually results in a more upscale look for the inside. But sporty elements are still there and help the car retina its familiar look and design.

Other updates which the vehicle gains include a Qi wireless charging station, smart-key activated doors and ignition, a power moon roof, an updated Entune touchscreen, dual-zone climate controls, and Blind-sport monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

The seats have a new leather trim which makes things much more convenient to drive in. Finally, all the new 2019 Toyota Tacoma models are going to have a built-in GoPro mount placed just near the rear-view mirror. Finally, the cabin is going to be much quitter thanks to the new acoustic materials which the vehicle is fitted with.

2019 Toyota Tacoma Powertrain Options

Probably the most significant change for the 2019 Toyota Tacoma is the addition of a new power plant. The old 4.0-liter V-6 is out and is being replaced with a 3.5-liter V-6 running   Atkinson combustion cycle. This actually means that the engine is going to be much more efficient and has the appropriate power.

Unfortunately, the specs of this engine are still not revealed and we are very hopeful to get them really soon. On the other hand, we still have a familiar offer with the 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine being carried over. This one is making 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque.

2019 Toyota Tacoma 0-60 mph and Top Speed

The latest specs of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma reveal familiar numbers. The new set of features which the vehicle is coming out with is not going to change its speeding ability. Thus the car is still in need of approximately 7.7 seconds to reach 0-60 mph and the top speed of the vehicle is 113 mph. All in all, nobody actually expected that the specs of the car differ so much in the first place but it is still good to have them this way.

Newest Fuel Economy Ratings

Thanks to the newly offered engine choice, the EPA ratings of the 2019 Toyota Tacoma are slightly better. The newest engine is more efficient in terms of power and consumption as well. So it consumes 18 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. Not really a class leading stat but still very much appropriate for the segment where the 2019 Toyota Tacoma competes in.

New 2019 Ram 2500 Release Date?

The newest 2019 Ram 2500 is a model which brings us all the advantages that we are used to having from it. In fact, it is set as a regular Ram 1500 but offers superior towing and hauling capabilities. It is a heavy duty truck for a reason and it delivers on that promise. Like the 1500, this one also comes in different sizes, configurations and powertrains, all with the aim of providing best performance rates and the necessary performance.

Now, the upcoming 2019 Ram 2500 will be released on the market pretty soon. The latest set of pictures saw the vehicle’s unofficial announcement. But the car is coming, make no mistake about it. The updated vehicle is supposed to make up for all the previous mistakes and will genuinely update the model’s interior and comfort. It will make the model a lot more useful and satisfying for the people. Expect to see it for sale by middle 2018 or somewhere towards the end of the year.

2019 Ram 2500 Price Changes

The price of the future 2019 Ram 2500 has not exactly been made yet. But due to the fact that they are planning to expand the technology inside the car and them adding new features, it will probably affect the price. The thing is that the vehicle is adding all the necessary parts to compete in the segment.

Of course, there are some priorities that need to be made and addressed first. But it does not mean that this vehicle will underperform. In fact, we expect it to gather the necessary following that it needs and a starting price of around 34,000 dollars is just enough and will be enough for the fans to appreciate. All in all, we did not expect it to go beyond the current price range and it delivered on the promise.

Newest 2019 Ram 2500 Rumors

The rumors about the 2019 Ram 2500 started spreading with the release of the spy photos. This was marked with the ultimate comeback of the vehicle which will shake up and take the industry by the storm. In fact, this model has gain a lot of attention for just a short period of time. The competition has a lot to be concerned about. First of all, the 2019 Ran 2500 has everything that the competition has and does not go so far beyond the machinations which the competition presents.

But the Ram 2500 has one thing that separates it from the flock, and that is the coil spring rear suspension. It helps with having a much more compliment ride compared to the competition. It does not matter whether you are driving a car with an empty bed or a fully loaded one, the effect is the same. The car will in each situation provide the best driving features that you would want to have. It is immensely powerful and comfortable to ride in.

What are the Exterior Changes for the 2019 Ram 2500?

The exterior of the 2019 Ram 2500 is not changing so much compared to the outgoing model. Their aim is not to configure the truck so much but to help it become a more modern vehicle. They are doing in on the outside more and have decided to sacrifice the exterior.

That is why the exterior of the vehicle does not go beyond what it already had. It is a familiar vehicle and there are only a few changes in elements that will make this model look different. The aesthetics is sometimes the least thing that the people worry about and they mainly think about the utility and the power output.

The model is going to come in the familiar assortment of trims and configurations. This is a utility vehicle so there is a whole lot to expect from it. As far as the cab styles go, there are three different ones to choose from. You also have the option of picking between two bed lengths and that is also made available throughout seven trims. The trim models that are brought back include Tradesman, SLT, Big Horn/Lone Star, Laramie, Laramie, Longhorn, Limited and Power Wagon.

What Colors are Available?

The same as with the aesthetics of the 2019 Ram 2500, the color is not a decisive factor for the truck. It is something that people whose aim is not the utility of the car but they want to have it as a model that they can drive around in. As for the changes made for the color of the car, the news is scarce. There is no doubt that they plan to introduce some new color options, but for the most part they will most likely stick to the basic and usual specter.

The debuting vehicle will most likely bring the same colors as the last time. However, the coming 2019 vehicle might introduce some novelties in terms of completely new color schemes. There are plenty of possibilities to think of. And we are very much hoping that they do decide to add some new color options in order to update the car even further.

2019 Ram 2500 Size and Dimensions

This part of the 2019 Ram 2500 is going to remain largely the same. According to an announcement, the vehicle is not going to change the size and will keep its appearance and dimensions. This keeps the car at the same position which it was and allows it to have the same characteristics which it used to.

This is mainly aimed at the utility and the towing ability which this model has. Thus the vehicle is still 237.4 inches long and the wheelbase of it is 149.5 inches. The width is 79.1 inches and the height is 77.7 inches. The interior passenger volume is at 125 cu ft which allows more than enough interior comfort. Also the curb weight is 7020 lb. this still means that the 2019 Ram 2500 is going to be a very imposing and massive car.

Interior Changes and Updates for the 2019 Ram 2500

The 2019 Ram 2500 is going to have something for the interior that not many cars have. The comfort in the cabin is unusually high for a vehicle like this. It owes to the immaculate driving quality which the vehicle possesses and the seat configuration which the model is adding. The cabin is quiet, roomy and supportive. It will help you snuggle the passengers and the driver equally well. Another thing is the advanced ergonomics which makes things a lot easier.

Technology is another part that they are updating. The new technological updates, including the touchscreen, radio control and the new Uconnect infotainment system are all of pretty high quality. The button configuration is working very fine and it simply helps you get used to everything here much quicker. The setup is easy to access and easy to use. And there is more of it this time so you are not going to be concerned about the usage of technology here.

Engine Offers for the 2019 Ram 2500

There are several engines to choose from for the 2019 Ram 2500. The base model which is available for most of the trims and offers is the 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engine which can develop up to 383 horsepower, 400 pound-feet of torque. This engine is also usually pared with a six-speed automatic transmission.

There are also two additional optional engines, the  A 6.4-liter V8 which makes 410 hp, 429 lb-ft of torque and a turbocharged 6.7-liter diesel six-cylinder that can generate up to 350 hp and 660 lb-ft. The former one has a six-speed automatic transmission while the latter comes with a six-speed manual transmission. But if you add the reinforced six-speed automatic into the mix, the numbers will jump to 370 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque.

0-60 mph and Top Speed

The specs for the acceleration and top speed of the 2019 Ram 2500 are not going to change. With the similar sort of powertrains available the car will manage almost the same kind of a speed up. It will gain the 0-60 mph mark in around 7 seconds. It will also have a top speed of 104 mph as before. All in all, there are no needs for the changes here, as it is perfectly appropriate the way it is now.

Fuel Stats for the 2019 Ram 2500

Fuel stats for the 2019 Ram 2500 are officially not out yet. But we are probably going to have something that the previous car consumed. These numbers include an EPA rating of 12 mpg in the city and 14 mpg on the highway. But as said, all of this is still not official. We will have to wait and see just by how much the car will improve in the fuel usage department. We do not hope to see any significant improvements there, though.

Newest Release Date for the 2019 Hyundai Tucson

With the third generation of the vehicle still going we are getting an updated 2019 Hyundai Tucson. The latest Tucson received its last generation retooling in 2016. The vehicle was released back then and showcased at the Geneva Auto Show. This forthcoming model is going to continue the line of vehicles that are going under the Tucson banner. We are confident that the details that have been released so far will make this car a fairly good one.

There are scarce details about the release date although many details about the car are already familiar. The vehicle will add some much needed changes. These are not going to change things so much but will give a nice refresh to the brand which needed some pampering. All in all, the updated version and the 2019 Hyundai Tucson is going to be available for next year. Even though the number in front of the name says 2019, expect to get the car by the end of 2018.

What Price can we Expect for the 2019 Hyundai Tucson?

Generally speaking, the 2019 Hyundai Tucson is not going to go beyond the current price so much. With this vehicle you are getting all the perks as the previous one. But you will add some much needed updates that will keep it afloat. In fact, we are liking this car even more by the second. The base price will be somewhere around $22,700 as a base MSRP. It will depend at which trim version you are looking at but the vehicle will not go too much beyond the limit of some of the established models.

It will also depend on the powertrain choice as that too can affect the price in a big way. You can expect all of the previous trim versions to make a comeback and be featured against. It all starts with the base and standard SE, then you have the Eco, Sport and finally the Limited as the highest tier version. The price for the highest trim and also your most expensive offer is about $31,175.

Latest Rumors about the 2019 Hyundai Tucson

There were a ton of rumors with the 2019 Hyundai Tucson’s entrance on the scene. First and foremost, most of the people were regarding this as a much bigger updated. Much of the people were expecting to see a lot of changes for the car. This includes them going as far as to state that the Tucson was supposed to get a new generation model. But the new generation vehicle seems implausible for the moment.

First of all, the current third-generation is fairly fresh so it would be illogical for them to change the car now and introduce an entirely new one. It has already proven to be stable and shows a lot of commitment that a lot of the other rivaling cars don’t. Thus the real through is that this is a minor refresh. An update which will not change the car significantly but will help it change just enough in order to be a competitive and stable car on the market.

Exterior Updates and Changes for the 2019 Hyundai Tucson

Generally speaking, 2019 Hyundai Tucson looks as bold as it ever did. It is a model which will build upon the successes that the previous model has already established and made for it. The hexagonal grill with vertical slats is still there and the front fascia has adopted an interesting and an upright look. The lower apron has horizontally orientated surrounds added, while the LED headlights are wider compared to before.

If you look at the profile, the changes made to the previous car will be kept. This includes the A-pillars that have been positioned a bit towards the back. But now, a sharply rising accent line has been added that runs the course from the front wheel arch and goes all the way to the taillights. It makes it look much more interesting compared to before and seemingly gives it a modern look.

The back end has arguably gone through the least amount of changes. The 2019 Hyundai Tucson keeps the slim taillights and the lower bumper from the last time. This Tucson is a car which has already adopted a more serious theme. The newest SUV is small but is very stable and makes it a very interesting and sharp car to have.

Is the 2019 Hyundai Tucson Adding new Colors?

For now it is not certain what colors will the 2019 Hyundai Tucson add. There is certainly an idea to add new color variants and it would be fabulous part of the new update to have them. The only thing is that they are not coming forward with any news about this matter. The most that we can hope to get is some optional ones becoming a standard choices. But there is also an idea that at least two new color schemes are going to be available. We shall see what will happen about this matter fairly soon.

Dimensions and Size

With the updates that come for the 2019 Hyundai Tucson, there are going to be no dimensions changes. With every new vehicle people are often interested in the dimensions. This time this is not going to be an issue as this is an updated and you rarely see size changes made for an updated car. This one is no different and it will keep the same kind of size which we had the last time. It includes a full length of 176.18 Inches and a wheelbase of 105.11 Inches. The height is 64.76 Inches and the width is still 72.83 Inches.

What Happened on the Inside of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson?

Some of the changes that the 2019 Hyundai Tucson are really hard to notice, but they are there. The interior will add some comfort settings and also update the technology which the vehicle is going to have. The soft touch material are going to make driving in this car a real joy. It is also expected that they add some new optional pieces, but more about that to come later. The Tucson is also one of the more spacious cars when it comes to the interior. It allows a lot of interior roominess and makes the passengers feel entirely relax. Let’s also not forget the 31 cubic feet of rear cargo space, which can also be expanded to a maximum capacity of 61.9 cubic feet.

The dashboard is also getting some updates but the layout remains mostly familiar. Actually everything looks much more premium which was the main idea behind the changes that came. All in all, this is not a bad look for the new 2019 Tucson and makes it one of the more favorable looking models. Some special additions which are not available for the Limited version and since the 2019 model include a 315-watt Infinity premium audio system which will also feature Clari-Fi Music Restoration Technology. Of course there is the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Also the higher trim levels have upgraded fabrics on the door panel which makes it a lot more comfortable here.

Engine Choices for the 2019 Hyundai Tucson

There are going to be no changes when it comes to the powertrain offers for the 2019 Hyundai Tucson. These are all going to be completely transferred from the outgoing model.
