The Hyundai Tucson offers decent value for money, a long equipment list and roomy interior, but its ride and handling are lacklustre at bestread the full model review
Flagship versions of the Tucson benefit from advanced features, including ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a panoramic sunroof and LED headlights. It’s all getting a bit expensive by this point, though, so if you can live without these features, we suggest you pocket the saving and go for another trim.
Engine:2.0 CRDi 185
The range-topping diesel gets a mild hybrid system that helps fuel economy and makes the stop-start engine system very smooth, and it’s the quickest of the diesel engines. Performance is impressive, proving swift in town and flexible on the motorway, but while it’s hushed at a cruise the engine note can be quite coarse when accelerating. It’s also very expensive. Only available with four-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
