Ownership cost

What used Hyundai Terracan 4x4 will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Hyundai Terracan 4x4?

The Terracan may be a bargain next to cars of a similar size, but it's not cheap, and it will have bills to match.

Just take fuel economy, for example: even with a manual gearbox, the car only returns 32.4mpg, and the automatic model isn't even as good as that. That may be acceptable for a car of this size, but a diesel Nissan X-Trail returns nearer 40mpg, and is not much smaller inside.

Insurance, on the other hand, is pretty good. A diesel X5 is in group 17 and a diesel Grand Cherokee just one group lower, but the Terracan is in group 12.

Likewise, you should have nothing to fear from routine running costs, and even if you need some unscheduled work, it shouldn't be too dear. Figures from Warranty Direct show that Hyundai dealers have among the lowest labour rates, and that average repair costs for Hyundais are also pretty cheap.
