The Hyundai Tucson 2.7 V6 CDX is equipped with a high level of standard equipment which would be expensive options on other 4x4 (SUV's).
Comfort and Refinement
The Hyundai Tucson 2.7 V6 CDX is equipped with a high level of standard equipment which would be expensive options on other 4x4 (SUV's). For example you will find comfortable leather-faced heated front seats, an electric tilt & slide sunroof, tinted privacy glass and climate control - all as standard on the CDX model.
The seats are large, supportive and easy to get in and out of as you step down out of the vehicle and head room, leg room and shoulder width is excellent. The Tucson has more legroom than the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V with a generous 1070mm of front legroom and 945mm in the rear. The drivers seat is height adjustable with recline adjustment via a lever not a rotary dial. The leather wrapped steering wheel is only height adjustable.
Overall the level of refinement is high and includes automatic auto-dimming rear view mirror with compass, electric door mirrors, front & rear electric windows, heated door mirrors, rear centre armrest, front armrest height adjustable and overhead console with sunglasses holder.
How It Looks -
The Hyundai Tucson is designed with simple, curved lines and progressive styling creating a thoroughly modern appearance. It is robust looking, with a distinctive front profile and in our opinion more attractive than many other compact SUV's.
How It Looks - Interior
The Hyundai Tucson's cabin is simple and ergonomically laid out.
You won’t find dreadful fake wood in the Tucson, instead you are greeted with brushed aluminium effect trim and on the CDX model leather faced seats, it is very well-trimmed bearing in mind the price.
