What's the used Hyundai Terracan 4x4 like?

Size is everything with the Terracan. It's longer than a BMW X5, almost as long as a Jeep Grand Cherokee, but considerably cheaper than either.

Other than the centre rear seat being a little uncomfortable, there's little to complain about in terms of accommodation. The dash is simple and clear, the driving position basically sound (although reach adjustment on the steering wheel would help) and there's more than enough head- and legroom front and rear. Likewise, the boot is huge, with almost 2000 litres of space. Access to the boot is easy and the rear seat splits 60/40.

The car is also excellent off-road thanks to high- and low-ratio gearboxes and good ground clearance. However, it's not so good on-road, with loads of body roll in bends and slow steering that's short on feel. The car's shape also kicks up a lot of wind noise at speed, while the engine is noisy under hard acceleration.
