The Hyundai Tucson is a stylish, five-seat, mid-size SUV operating in a fiercely competitive sector of the market packed with talented rivals – if not dazzling in any one area it’s a strong contender nonetheless.
The Tucson is a stylish mid-size SUV, and for many family car buyers, that’ll be enough. It has plenty more going for it, too, with a spacious, practical interior, generous equipment, a great warranty and keen pricing. Some rivals are better to drive and posher inside, but the Tucson is a very good all-rounder. Voted for by the public as the 2018 winner of Auto Trader’s New Car Award for ‘Best Car for Long Distances.
Reasons to buy

The Tucson immediately impresses as a family car. Not only do the rear doors open nice and wide to give easy access to the rear seats, the seats themselves provide plenty of space. Even with a couple of six-footers in the front seats, two more six-footers will have room to spare in the back. It’s only the fact the centre seat is a little narrower than the outer seats that prevents the car from being a comfortable five-seater.
A comfortable ride is the most important dynamic aspect for any car that’ll primarily be used for ferrying your family, and the Tucson does a decent job. The soft suspension deals well with pitted and rippled surfaces at all speeds, and although you feel more from bigger bumps and potholes, they rarely make life uncomfortable. Having said that, you will feel the body bouncing around a fair bit on undulating roads, and there’s a little bit of body lean in bends, but this is an SUV, so it’s to be expected somewhat.
An incredible car, with only 28000 miles seeking for a special owner , soon in our showroom!
