Hyundai Tucson Review

October 6, 2015

We’re back with another review, and up for inspection today is the new Hyundai Tucson. As a replacement for the ix35, the Hyundai Tucson is the new kid on the block. Today, we’re buckling up and taking Hyundai’s SUV crossover out for a cruise – to see how it measures up in terms of design, performance and pricing.

Fancy finding out more? Join us as we dive deep into our Hyundai Tucson review and we’ll tell you all you need to know about this car – and how to get help with finance, too.

The styling of the new Hyundai Tucson is distinctive. With thick creases running along the sides and bonnet – as well as a bold front grille – it definitely makes a good first impression. Climb inside the cabin and you won’t be disappointed there, either – with decent storage space, a spacious interior and an impressive 513 litre boot space, the Tucson trumps its class rivals.


All Tucson’s come with plenty of kit as standard, including DAB Digital Radio, alloy wheels, Bluetooth connection and automatic headlights – but naturally, as you step up the range you’ll get more for your money. The SE trim comes kitted with rear parking sensors, heated seats and climate control – while the Premium SE comes with a luxurious leather interior, all-round parking sensors, rain-sensing windscreen wipers, keyless entry, panoramic sunroof and ventilated seats!

Performance and Handling

As crossovers go, the Hyundai Tucson is great to drive, with an eager engine and smooth gear shift – and when it comes to engines, buyers can choose between two petrol engines and three diesels.

Both petrol engines on offer are 1.6 litres, but our pick of the range is the turbocharged model, sprinting from 0-62mph in 9 seconds – an impressive performance figure given its weight and size.

If diesel is your fuel of choice, the 1.7 litre has plenty that impresses, returning 61.7mpg with CO2 emissions of 119g/km – meaning annual road tax will be just £30.
