It’s amazing how powerful a well-chosen name can be. Think about the Hyundai Tucson and your mind might well be drawn to the big skies and rocky outcrops of Arizona; a wild frontier, immortalised in silver-screen Western shootouts. In fact, it was just around the corner from the city of Tucson, in Tombstone, where a whole bunch of that rootin’, tootin’ and cowboy shootin’ took place, both in reality and in blockbuster movies.
Of course, it’s possible that Hyundai just thought that Tucson was a cool name, but this family SUV finds itself right in the middle of its own Gunfight at the OK Corral. It needs to be darned quick on the draw to see off rivals that come in all shapes and sizes, such as the Peugeot 3008, Seat Ateca and Skoda Karoq, plus some of the premium offerings, like the BMW X1 and Volvo XC40.
