    My car

    I had a '93 Shogun before but the Terracan pulls far better than it did. I tow a caravan with 1600kg and when I had the Shogun it some times struggled up hill but I have to admit that I don't with the Terracan.

    I wish it was fitted with cruise control, & the back window opened like the Santa Fe has. My wife enjoys driving this 4x4 as she did not get on with the Shogun, and I am very pleased with this 4x4, it is a very good towing vehicle.

    Steering is a bit like the Disco but you get used to it. It has very good pulling power, and you can get a lot in this vehicle which as any caravaner will know you need all the space you can get.

    A lot of vehicle for the price.

    My car

    A great car to own and drive. I have previously owned a Discovery, have driven a Kia Sorento and various other 4X4s before buying a Terracan.

    I tow a 1700kg caravan and the car is stable and powerful. This car does not get the good press it deserves and is a worthy vehicle to merit it with a 4X4 car of the year award.

    Keep away from expensive badged cars that cost twice as much. The only down side seems to be the radio - an easy upgrade is all that is required

    For a cheap 4x4 it's the best car you can buy. No I don't work for Hyundai.

    My car

    I've had my Terracan for seven months now. I bought it because I wanted a more powerful towing car for my caravan and the Terracan has not disappointed in this area.

    On the road it handles well and despite what others seem to think, road and wind noise is not a problem. It does wander in high crosswinds but that is probably the only fault with the car; oh and the annoying "Hello" message on the Clarion radio/cd player screen! At the price I would recomend the Terracan above all other 4x4s.

    My car

    We had been looking for a 4x4 for ages. Every one we looked at had something we did not like about it.

    The first Terracan we saw was in a Hyundia showroom where we were looking at a Santa Fe.

    We liked what we saw but thought the interior was a bit dull. Some time later, after visiting a Nissan dealer, we passed a Hyundia dealer with a silver Terracan outside.

    When we came close to look at it, we could see it was different. And when we looked inside we saw the new trim in grey cloth with the wooden finish to the dash and steering wheel, we were sold.

    In fact, that was their demo and we bought it at a very good price.

    The only complaint I have is with the steering. It over-steers a lot and you have to really drive it with a capital D.

    Economy, comfort and security are all fine. I will definitely look at a newer model in a couple of years' time.
