Cruising to Your Destination Never Felt So Fun

Under the hood of the 2020 Hyundai Tucson is a 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine packing 161 horsepower and 150 lb-ft torque, giving you enough power to traverse the bustling Tampa roads and get up and going with ease from traffic lights. Getting around town is also an efficient process with EPA-estimated 28 highway mpg on front-wheel drive models.

When you're in the mood for extra power, upgrade to the available 2.4L inline 4-cylinder engine with 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft torque. It's enough strength for a 2,000-lb towing capacity, allowing you to take your boats to the water for the weekend when you're not enjoying a swift and smooth drive down I-275 toward Clearwater.

Both engines come equipped with a 6-speed automatic gearbox for smooth and responsive drives anywhere you travel. When you're ready to take control, the SHIFTRONIC® manual mode lets you shift through gears at your pace. And with available all-wheel drive thrown in the mix, you'll enjoy those smooth drives on any road surface, even in the rain.

Take a ride in the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe, where a standard 2.4L inline 4-cylinder engine powers your adventures. With 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft torque, you're in for some quick and nimble rides. Plus, EPA-estimated 29-highway mpg on front-wheel drive models means you won't make constant stops at the gas station.

For a boost in power, the available 2.0L inline 4-cylinder turbo puts out 235 horsepower and 260 lb-ft torque starting at 1,450 RPM for rapid acceleration and effortless passing of Sunday drivers. To help with the sportiness, the 8-speed automatic transmission shifts through gears at precise moments for an exhilarating drive—or enter the SHIFTRONIC manual mode and take full control. All that power and performance allows for a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs.—enough for towing utility trailers and smaller vehicles for epic weekend getaways. Even when the roads get icy and slick, available all-wheel drive distributes power to all four wheels to keep you in command.
