The Hyundai Tucson is a spacious SUV with lots of equipment for the money. It's also a well-made and practical choice for families with its distinctive styling.
There's a good range of diesel and petrol engines to power the Hyundai Tucson including a 1.7 litre diesel unit producing 115 bhp which will return 62 mpg and has emissions of 119 g/km for the two-wheel drive version; opt for four-wheel-drive, and while the grip is excellent the economy does drop to around 46 mpg. Indeed, the 2.0 litre diesel offers more power with engine producing 135 bhp, and the top of the range diesel unit produces 183 bhp but this particular engine will return economy of 48 mpg. The petrol engine offer smooth performance and power with a 1.6 litre turbocharged unit returning 45 mpg and emissions of 147g/km though the model with the turbocharged version of the petrol engine offers impressive performance but economy of just 37 mpg and emissions of 175g/km.
The mid-size SUV market is competitive but the Hyundai Tucson offers an interesting alternative with its distinctive styling, lots of practicality and excellent value for money. One reason for this is the long list of standard kit including alloy wheels, automatic headlights, air con, USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity and a DAB radio. Hyundai haven't skimped on safety equipment either for its Tucson with standard kit including six airbags, brake assist and lane departure warning. Other models come with blindspot detection, autonomous emergency braking and rear cross traffic alert which sees the car sounding a warning if it detects approaching vehicles when the Tucson is reversing.
Indeed, the Hyundai Tucson offers more space on board for five adults than many of its rivals and its boot is also larger. It's also a nice and comfortable car to drive, despite its size, and the suspension is soft enough to deal with bumps and rough roads to deliver a cosseted ride.
Not many potential owners will appreciate the big improvement in build quality of the Hyundai brand which is no longer a budget one and their cars are quality products. The interiors are well-designed and have lots of refinement so they are comfortable places to spend long journeys in. The Hyundai Tucson makes for an ideal choice for families wanting a large SUV with a good range of abilities and lots of equipment.
