Ownership cost

What used Hyundai Tucson 4x4 will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Hyundai Tucson 4x4?

Compared with Japanese rivals such as the X-Trail, the Tucson looks a real bargain, especially as some models are beginning to escape the Hyundai network, leading to even cheaper prices.

They're pretty inexpensive to run, too. You'll get better fuel economy from a Tucson than you will from, say, a Jeep Cherokee or Suzuki Grand Vitara, and insurance groups are generally par for the course for a 4x4. Just the Kia Sportage really undercuts it, and only then by a couple of groups.

Likewise, you should have nothing to fear from routine running expenses. It may cost more to service the Tucson than an average hatchback, but it's no worse than other 4x4s.

Hyundai's five-year warranty also should keep costs in check. Even if you need some unscheduled work done, it shouldn't be too pricey. Figures from Warranty Direct show that Hyundai dealers have among the lowest labour rates, and that average repair costs for Hyundais are also pretty cheap.
