Hyundai Tucson

(2015 - present)

The Hyundai Tucson is a medium-sized SUV/crossover. It replaced a model called the Hyundai ix35 (which, ironically, replaced the original Hyundai Tucson…). The current model was launched in the middle of 2015, and was given a major mid-life facelift in the middle of 2018.

The Tucson has received average to good reviews from most of the UK motoring media. It has received particular praise for its value for money and good levels of standard equipment, but its driving dynamics are not considered to be up to the standards of the best cars in its class.
