Review

The Hyundai Tucson has a fantastic reliability record and a top-notch warranty offer, plus it has roomy rear seats. But rivals are much better to drive, with quieter and cleaner engines, and are plusher inside, too. Overall, the Tucson’s weaknesses prevent it from challenging the best cars in the class.

Trim: Premium

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.

Engine: 2.0 CRDi 48V MHD

The 2.0 CRDi 185 is the quickest diesel – if not quite as swift as our favourite petrol – and the only choice if you want four-wheel drive. It's available only in the range-topping trim and is best suited for towing, but its large capacity isn't great for running costs.
