2020 Hyundai Tucson Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 6.7

The 2020 Hyundai Tucson has some soft-touch materials throughout its cabin, but it also features quite a lot of hard plastics. Additionally, the Tucson has below-average cargo space for the class. That said, it does come with lots of standard technology and a solid amount of passenger space.

  • The design and layout of the interior is rather bland but functional, all the way up to the most expensive 'Ultimate' trim level – no matter the trim, it’s not going to wow anybody." -- Autoblog
  • "The Tucson has no notable missteps when it comes to overall comfort. Typical touch points for elbows and knees are padded, and the quantity and range of adjustments for front seats ensure that both tall and short occupants will find an optimal position." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • The monotone interior of our tester looked a bit bland, but there were plenty of padded surfaces." -- Consumer Guide (2019)

Seating

There's seating for five people in the 2020 Tucson. The front row is comfortable, supportive, and roomy. The rear seats are a little less supportive but still provide a good amount of space for adults. Cloth upholstery is standard, while a heated steering wheel, a power-adjustable driver's seat, heated front and rear seats, and ventilated front seats are available.

There are two full sets of LATCH car-seat connectors on the outer rear seats and an upper tether on the middle seat.

  • "The Tucson's older design means it's not as roomy on the inside as the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV." -- Autotrader
  • The front seats provide ample support and cushioning for long-distance trips. The rear seats are firmer and flatter but can accommodate average-size adults. The 60/40-split folding seats also feature a slight reclining adjustment." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "Even if they’re not class-leading roomy, the rear seats are comfortable enough, and the luggage area's adjustable floor also includes storage for the cargo cover." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)

Interior Features

The standard infotainment system features logically arranged physical and touch controls. Reviewers praise the Tucson for its abundance of standard technology, including Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a 7-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, USB ports, and a six-speaker audio system.

The Tucson also comes with a significant list of standard active safety features. These include a rearview camera, lane keep assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and driver drowsiness monitoring.

Available features include an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, Hyundai's Blue Link telematics system, an extra USB port, an eight-speaker Infinity audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, Clari-Fi music restoration technology, wireless device charging, a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, and push-button start.

Optional active safety features include adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, pedestrian detection, and a surround-view parking camera system.

  • "As all modern Hyundai infotainment systems go, this one is easy to use and relatively simple, but it isn’t the prettiest to look at. Both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard on the cheapest of Tucsons, because Hyundai makes its 7-inch touchscreen standard equipment. An 8-inch screen with navigation and upgraded audio system is added to the Limited and Ultimate trims." -- Autoblog
  • "Every Tucson comes with a user-friendly touchscreen — the size and number of functions go up with each trim level. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and satellite radio are standard. Several desirable safety features are standard too, with a few features reserved for the top trim levels." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "The digital display doesn't overload the driver with too much information." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)

Cargo

The Tucson has 31 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and 61.9 cubic feet with the back row folded down. Those numbers trail what the competition offers, but critics still say the Tucson has a solid amount of space for most needs. This Hyundai's wide cargo opening also makes hauling hefty items easy. A hands-free power liftgate is available.

  • As for visibility, interior room and cargo space, we found the Tucson to be roughly on par with other models in its segment: It's not a standout, but it's far from being the worst in its class." -- Autotrader
  • The Tucson puts an emphasis on passenger space rather than cargo space. For many, that'll be fine. Max cargo capacity is at least 10 fewer cubes than class leaders." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • In comparison to the sales leaders in the compact SUV segment, the Tucson's cargo space measurements are unimpressive. Still, the 31 cubic-feet of volume provided behind the rear seat is useful, needing only bins to either side of the center of the floor for holding gallon jugs of milk or bottles of juice. Fold the 60/40-split folding rear seat to access 61.9 cu.-ft. of cargo space behind the front seats." -- New York Daily News (2018)
