Hyundai Tucson Review

The Hyundai Tucson (pronounced Too-son) went on sale in the UK in August 2004.

25 November 2005 Melanie Carter

The Hyundai Tucson (pronounced Too-son) went on sale in the UK in August 2004. Hyundai hope to attract customers who have not previously considered a SUV and both 2 Wheel Drive and 4 Wheel drive models are included in the model line-up.

The Tucson model range is available with a choice of 2.0 litre & 2.7 litre V6 petrol engines and a 2.0 litre diesel engine. Two transmissions are available the 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic.

With prices starting at £14,395 the Hyundai Tucson is pitched against established competition such as the Kia Sportage, Land Rover Freelander, Honda CR-V, Mitsubishi Outlander, Nissan X-TRAIL and Toyota RAV4.

We chose to take the Tucson on our annual trip to Cornwall which gave us the perfect opportunity to put it to the test.
