The Hyundai Tucson styling seems to be heavily inspired by its bigger SUV stablemate and the design is all-round a very handsome one. Inside, the Tucson Hyundai took a far more measured approach with an interior that is clean and probably a little bit understated in this sector of the market. But most importantly the Tucson is pretty spacious and not only compares well to most of its SUV rivals. Ride quality and NVH levels especially have seen massive improvements. The Hyundai Tucson offers a supple suspension and the refined damping ensures a good trade-off between sharp handling characteristics and comfortable ride quality. The engine likewise has been refined and is now smoother and quieter than ever. Overall performance too compares favourably with most of its main competitors, thanks to its 115kW 2-litre CVVT engine. Safety features included ABS braking with EBD and brake assist, stability control as well as a full complement of 6 airbags. The Hyundai Tucson is most definitely a very solid buy in this sector of the market and even comes with an amazing standard 5-year/150 000km warranty.
