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.

Hyundai haven’t released trim and equipment levels as yet.

This has the same 148bhp and 0-62mph of 10.3sec as the entry-level petrol version (which is the only one without hybrid tech and only comes with a manual gearbox), but adds 48-volt mild hybrid technology (badged MHEV) for added efficiency and the option of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
