Sentiment Score 72%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Tucson PHEV offers the broadest array of powertrains anywhere in the Korean giant's line-up. It pairs Hyundai's 1.6-litre GDi four-cylinder turbo petrol engine with a 90bhp electric motor annexed to the car’s six-speed automatic transmission. Four-wheel drive is also standard, and in total the range-topping Tucson produces a gutsy 261bhp and 258 lb ft.

Pros
  • Powerful petrol engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent range
Cons
  • Lack of standard equipment

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Tucson is Hyundai’s fourth-generation mid-size SUV. Prices start from around £29,000, making it a little more expensive than the likes of the Volkswagen Tiguan and Ford Kuga. The range lineup is pretty straightforward, starting with SE Connect, N Line and N Line S, then Premium and top-of-the-range Ultimate specifications. Power options centre around a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine in various states of tune and with varying degrees of hybrid assistance.

Pros
  • Cheap to buy
  • Stylish looks
  • Good standard equipment
Cons
  • Expensive for a mid-size SUV

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
At 4.5 metres, it's longer than a VW Tiguan and only just shy of Toyota's RAV4. You'll soon learn how to encourage kickdown in the Hyundai when required, and how to avoid it when you're happy to maintain a steady speed. There are just two driving modes, flicked to via a small switch at the base of the centre console. The car defaults to Eco, which is probably the best everyday set-up. Moving into Sport flashes red graphics onto the digital instrument panel and increases the amount of assistance the electric motor can give to performance.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons
  • Not as agile as the RAV4

autoexpress[4]

Sentiment Score 76%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
Mild-hybrid Tucson has a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Powered by a belt starter-generator powered by a small lithium-ion battery (for a total of 148bhp) This gives a small surge of torque to help the petrol unit. Main purpose is so that the Tucson's engine can shut down on the move when coasting, or earlier when coming to a junction, to help boost efficiency.

Pros
  • Premium looks
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment system
Cons
  • Pricier than rivals

The award-winning Hyundai Tucson SUV makes a great first impression. Here at Auto Express we like the new Tucson so much it recently won our award for best mid-size SUV, beating the new Nissan Qashqai and Volkswagen Tiguan. Having covered 3,000 miles in its first 12 weeks, the Tucson is also winning over my family.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
Five-seat Tucson is longer, wider and fractionally higher than before. Front end looks sensational, with the fragmented grille resembling the feathers in an eagle’s unfurled wings. Rear is equally eye-catching, with shark-fin motifs peppering the rear lights and D-pillar brightwork delivering real stand-out, and a hidden wiper under the chunky spoiler. Unfortunately the driving position isn't great. The base-spec SE Connect's seats are flat and thinly-padded.

Pros
  • Effortless infotainment
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • Driving position isn’t great
  • Lack of tech overkill

Hyundai offers the Tucson Hybrid in three trim levels. The base Blue comes in at $30,235, including $1,185 for destination. The upper-crust $38,535 Limited Hybrid has everything you could ever want in a compact SUV. The Tucson Hybrid is no less capacious than its gas-only counterpart.
