The Hyundai Tucson is a medium-sized SUV/crossover. It replaced a model called the Hyundai ix35 (which, ironically, replaced the original Hyundai Tucson…). This model was launched in the middle of 2015, and was given a major mid-life facelift in the middle of 2018. Production ended in 2020 ahead of an all-new model launching in 2021.

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