Which used Hyundai Terracan 4x4 should I buy?

You don't really have a choice. The Terracan only ever came with one engine - a 2.9-litre turbodiesel - and one trim. However, it's worth getting a car from late 2004 onwards, because these have a more powerful version of the engine.

The 2.9-litre engine isn't exactly quick, but it does a very good job of hauling around such a big car. However, the optional four-speed automatic 'box does rather take the edge off the performance.

Otherwise, if you want a Terracan, your most major choice is what colour you want. Mind you, it's no great hardship choosing the basic trim, because it comes with a generous helping of standard equipment, such as climate control, alloy wheels, a CD player and all-round electric windows.

There were never that many options, but among those you might think about looking out for are an automatic gearbox, leather upholstery and sat-nav.
