Review

Obviously, this is an early drive with many unknowns – because Hyundai hasn’t divulged all the details yet. We’ve also only driven what’s expected to be the top-spec trim and engine combination. However, the signs look very good if you’re after a spacious family SUV with the option of a punchy but frugal hybrid petrol engine. There are more comfortable and better-handling family SUVs, though.

get the best price

Premium trim comes with 18in alloy wheels, keyless entry, electrically operated front seats, heated front and rear seats, leather trim, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, front and rear parking sensors, a Krell eight-speaker stereo, wireless phone charging, blind-spot warning and auto lights and wipers. It's quite pricey, though.

Unfortunately, this mild-hybrid diesel engine feels out of puff at higher speed. The more powerful version is a much better bet
