  • Handsome style

But what else does the Tucson offer, read on below to find out.

Engines and Driving Experience

Tucson Previous Gen Static

As with many vehicles, the Tucson comes with both petrol and diesel engines, accompanied by manual and automatic transmission choices.

If you're after performance, the petrol engines will fit the bill nicely with a 1.6-litre offering 174bhp; good for hitting 62mph from a standstill in around 8.6 seconds, whilst still offering circa 35mpg.

For those who rank economy higher than performance, a 2.0-litre diesel offers 182bhp, with the possibility of over 42mpg, taking around 9.6 seconds to hit 62mph from a standstill. Older 1.7-litre diesels offer less power but can return over 50mpg - although this was before mpg test conditions were less stringent, so it's highly likely you'll see mpg similar to the 2.0-litre diesel.

On the whole, this particular version of the Tucson offers a quiet, refined and comfortable driving experience, although keen drivers looking for excitement and feel will probably want to look elsewhere.

Practicality and Running Costs

Extended Boot Tucson

You'll find five seats in the Tucson, with plenty of cabin space to get comfortable. 513 litres of boot space is on offer too, ensuring luggage and the weekly shop can be swallowed with ease.

As for running costs, this mid-sized SUV returns between 35 and 42mpg on average, which isn't too bad but will fall short of some rivals such as the Peugeot 3008, which can offer up to 60mpg in some specifications.

It's worth noting that the Hyundai Tucson comes with a 5-year warranty, showing how much confidence Hyundai have in their models, and also means many used cars will still have warranty with them. This makes maintenance and servicing more affordable, which can be carried out at any Evans Halshaw Hyundai dealer.

Interior, Technology and Safety

Tucson Previous Gen Interior

First seen in 2015, the interior of the Tucson still looks very modern and sophisticated. More familiar analogue dials are used, but manage to look attractive thanks to a simplistic legible presentation. A central infotainment screen ensures the cabin doesn't feel outdated, and a durable array of materials should see the Tucson well for a number of years.

Standard specifications on the Tucson are very good, with alloy wheels, parking sensors, DAB, Bluetooth and cruise control coming on SE models. S Connect, which was a new entry-level trim introduced on facelifted models come with a reversing camera too.

Sought-after toys come in the Premium SE models, where sleeker styling comes into play, including 19-inch alloy wheels. Tech is more impressive too, with wireless phone charging, Krell premium audio, touchscreen sat-nav, and even front and rear heated seats featuring.

Safety gets top marks, with a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, thanks to features in the range including:

  • Auto headlights
  • Active bonnet system
  • Six airbags
  • Parking sensors
  • Lane keeping assist
  • Blindspot detection
  • Automatic braking

Is the Hyundai Tucson right for me?

With plenty of mid-sized SUVs on the market, the Hyundai Tucson hasn't got it easy. But as a total package, the Tucson scores highly in all the important SUV aspects.

Sophisticated and handsome looks are complemented by a well-presented cabin with decent practicality and a sound ambiance. Tech and safety features ensure the Tucson doesn't slip up in the all-important areas either.

A Peugeot 3008 offers more in terms of outright style, and the Peugeot also offers one of the best SUV interiors available, but the Tucson offers more presence and refinement than that of a similar age Nissan Qashqai or Renault Captur.

With such choice, a test drive will help decide if the Tucson is for you.
