Dive into your car shopping adventures with the latest updates on the 2019 Hyundai lineup

The New Year is always a time of new beginnings, and that's especially true when you look to the Hyundai brand. With plenty of updates coming to its 2019 model lineup, Hyundai positions itself at the forefront of innovation in design, technology, and safety.

Of course, if you're in the market for a new Hyundai this year, you're probably wondering how all these changes apply to the models you've had your eye on. And with our comprehensive selection of 2019 Hyundai SUVs and sedans, we're in a great position to give you a rundown of all that these exemplary vehicles have in store!

Hyundai sedans make a show of strength for their 2019 model year

There's a lot of different things to talk about with the 2019 Hyundai portfolio, but perhaps the story that's generated the biggest buzz here at our dealership has been that of the new 2019 Hyundai Veloster.

This sporty little hatchback is a decidedly unconventional vehicle, with its asymmetrical coupe layout and driver-focused cabin design. But with bold updates for its 2019 model year like its vibrant two-tone roof and exterior accents like LED lighting, the Hyundai Veloster hints at its dynamism, and it'll become readily apparent when you take it out on the road.

  • With its light yet sturdy architecture and your choice of either the standard Nu 2.0-liter Atkinson Cycle engine or the available 1.6-liter Turbo-GDI engine, the 2019 Hyundai Veloster is outfitted to deliver a more exhilarating driving experience than many of its compact hatchback competitors.
  • Taking sharp corners will be a real rush with the 2019 Hyundai Veloster, thanks in large part to its standard multi-link rear suspension.
  • Packed with available tech and amenities like a Head-Up Display, Qi wireless device charging, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and available Blind-Spot Collision Warning, the 2019 Hyundai Veloster is better-equipped than even some of its larger rivals.

Looking for an even sportier hatchback? You could always spring for the 2019 Hyundai Veloster N! With a 275-horsepower 1.0-liter turbocharged engine, unique N model exterior styling accents, an electronically controlled suspension with several track-oriented drive modes, the 2019 Hyundai Veloster N is assertive, dynamic, and endlessly fun to drive.

Of course, while the Hyundai Veloster may be the right fit for some, many will prefer the versatility and drivability of models like the 2019 Hyundai Sonata and 2019 Hyundai Elantra. And while the Hyundai Sonata doesn't see too many major changes for the 2019 model year, the Hyundai Elantra is getting a pretty big redesign aimed at making it more attractive and feature-forward than many compact sedans in its class.

  • For its 2019 model year, the Hyundai Elantra features a significant updated exterior design with a new front end design featuring a new grille and headlights and a new rear end design featuring a new trunk layout. In addition, three newly available wheel designs and LED lighting give this compact car a much more upscale feel.
  • Available Hyundai SmartSense technologies like Safe Exit Assist and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist have been added to the 2019 Hyundai Elantra, giving it an edge over many compact sedan rivals when it comes to forward-thinking safety tech.
  • While its compact size may make it great for daily driving and efficiency, the 2019 Hyundai Elantra is not without its creature comforts. Featuring an available new AVN 5.0 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a standard rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, Qi wireless smartphone charging for compatible devices, and even a Hyundai Blue Link® Connected Car System, the 2019 Hyundai Elantra is full to the brim with features that will enhance your drives on a daily basis.

As exciting as the changes coming to the new 2019 Hyundai sedan lineup are, the changes coming to the 2019 Hyundai SUV lineup are even more dramatic. With an eye on the future, the Hyundai brand adds two new electric SUVs to its portfolio: the 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric and the 2019 Hyundai NEXO.

  • The 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric is a compact electric SUV with a staggering 258-mile EPA-estimated range on a full charge, making it one of the few electric cars that's great for road trippers.
  • The Hyundai NEXO is a forward-thinking new fuel cell electric SUV. Designed with a lighter weight architecture that's specifically engineered for hydrogen fuel cells, the 2019 Hyundai NEXO eliminates many of the kinks that its competitors have seen in fuel cell car design, and even more impressively, refuels in as little as five minutes.

But while electric SUVs are an exciting option for many drivers, still others prefer conventionally powered Hyundai SUVs like the Hyundai Tucson and Hyundai Santa Fe. Happily, the 2019 model year brings with it plenty of great updates to these models as well.

  • The 2019 Hyundai Tucson sees a mild refresh that expands its feature availability with updates to its powertrain, safety, and convenience technologies.
  • The five-passenger 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport undergoes a significant redesign to become the new 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • The seven-passenger 2018 Hyundai Santa Fe gets some technology updates and becomes the new 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL

So, let's start with the 2019 Hyundai Tucson, a compact SUV that positions itself as a great fit for small families on the go. It comes with a newly available 2.4-liter engine with Idle, Stop & Go helping it to conserve fuel in heavy traffic. In addition, it's exterior styling gets a more modern feel with new wheel designs, headlight designs, and tail light designs, and three new color options. But perhaps its most significant changes are its safety features and amenities. Slip into the cabin, and you'll find available features like a wireless device charging pad and 2nd row USB ports for rear seat passengers to charge their favorite mobile devices on the go. Additionally, smart safety features like Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and Lane Keeping Assist make it easier to stay ahead of obstacles and hazards on the road, so you can simply focus on enjoying your time behind the wheel of the 2019 Hyundai Tucson.

Similarly, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe sees a number of key updates aimed at making it a great all around car for growing families and folks with active lifestyles.

  • With a new design for its front end that features stacked LED lighting elements, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe looks markedly more athletic and composed than many of its rivals on the SUV market.
  • With powertrain options ranging from the competitively efficienct 2.4-liter GDI engine with Idle, Stop & Go to the vibrant and dynamic 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe is exceptionally versatile, providing the power you need for everything from daily commuting to light off-road travel.
  • Tech features heavily in the design of the new 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe, with features ranging from Safe Exit Assist to keep you from accidentally opening your doors into oncoming traffic to an available Infinity® premium audio system with Clari-Fi® Music Restoration Technology.

What's more, if you need the extra seating, you can always step up to the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe XL.
