What Car? says...
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.
You can certainly forget about tumbleweed because this latest Tucson has some fresh, green credentials to crow about. It features engines with clever, mild hybrid technology. There’s even a full-on hybrid, which can travel short distances on electricity alone.
When all’s said and done, is it good enough to ride off into the sunset, or will you want to leave it stabled? Keep on reading and we’ll be sure to tell you how the Tucson drives and how it panders to its passengers. We’ll also piece together all we know to give you a darn good indication of how kind it’ll be to your wallet, too.
Whichever set of wheels you choose for your next adventure, Wild West or otherwise, mosey on down to our New Car Buying service; there you’ll find more than a fistful of dollars off the Hyundai Tucson and countless other cars.
