Hyundai thought of everything when they built the new Tucson

October 1, 2018 6:53 am | Peter Warren,

Your experience driving a car is comprised of hundreds of small moments. The best high-end cars are designed to maximise the comfort, ease and convenience of every one of these, however, that sort of luxury often comes with a lofty price tag.

The Hyundai Tucson is an exception to that. It's positively packed with features that make every second you're driving it a pleasure, and despite its modest price point, it more than holds its own against the most expensive luxury SUVs.

Comfort and convenience without the price tag

The interior of the Hyundai Tucson considers every need you may have and caters for it. Cold? Wrap your fingers around the heated steering wheel, sink into the heated seats and crank up the dual zone climate control. Need some fresh air and sunshine on a long summer drive? Push a button and the panoramic electric sunroof opens the car to the elements. 

Other features that you'll love include premium leather seats, a smart tailgate that opens automatically and in-built wireless phone charging docks. Spend 15 minutes inside this thing and you'll never want to get out. 

Performance without compromising economy

The pure thrill of driving a well-built, generously powered car is just as important as luxury features and comfort. The Hyundai Tucson's mini-but-mighty 1.6 litre turbo thankfully delivers those thrills, packing 174 hp and 265 Nm of torque into a small package. 

Its drive can be customised with the flick of a switch with modes including eco, sport and comfort, while the engine is harnessed with finesse by a sophisticated eight-speed automatic transmission. Who said practical cars can't be fun to drive?

More safety features than you need (until you do)

Hyundai are renowned for including every safety feature under the sun in their cars and the Hyundai Tucson is no exception. It's got a blind spot collision warning system, smart cruise control, a rear cross traffic warning system, forward collision assistance including automatic braking, lane keep assist, high beam assist and a backing camera.

It's also packed with several airbags and will monitor driver inputs to look for signs of fatigue and alert you if you start to nod off. You may not need most of these, but if you do you'll be so thankful that you have them.
