What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For For a little money, you get an awful lot of car, with real off-road ability

Against Its off-road ability is not matched on Tarmac, and the whole thing felt dated even when it was new, let alone now

Verdict It’s one of the cheapest big 4x4s, but not one of the most complete packages

Go for… 2.9 CRTD

Avoid… Pre-late 2004 cars

Hyundai Terracan 4x4
  • 1. Get a car from late 2004 onwards because these have a more powerful version of the engine
  • 2. The car is excellent off-road thanks to high- and low-ratio gearboxes and good ground clearance
  • 3. Terracan is longer than a BMW X5, almost as long as a Jeep Grand Cherokee, but considerably cheaper than both
  • 4. Rear accommodation is spacious enough, but the centre rear seat can be uncomfortable
  • 5. The boot is huge, with up to almost 2000 litres of space. Access to the boot is easy, and the rear seat splits 60/40
