My 2010 always started immediately after pushing the start button. Now it turns
over longer before starting. What could cause this?

Fuel pump, starter, ignition system, battery.


A fuel pressure drop is usually the main reason but others could be fuel quality, make sure you are using top tier fuels, air filter is another,, so the computer is not reading as much air flow as usual so it leans the system out some, you didn't mention how many miles were on it but it might be close enough for a tune up.
