Hyundai Tucson: AEB Off-Limits for Some 2019 Models

Popular Hyundai Tucson upgraded but autonomous emergency braking isn’t standard across the range – yet

The new-look 2019 Hyundai Tucson arrives in showrooms this month with lots of new features, including autonomous emergency braking (AEB) – but there’s a catch.

The potentially life-saving automatic braking technology is only standard on the two most expensive model grades – the Tucson Elite ($37,850) and Highlander ($46,500) — and is not available on entry-level or manual models.

That means that of the five most popular mid-size SUVs, the Tucson and Honda CR-V remain the only two not to offer AEB as standard across the range.
