60sec road test
The Tucson launches slap bang into the middle of the compact crossover segment and is well equipped for the job in hand: it's dashingly handsome (to these eyes), has a long standard equipment spec and a temptingly long warranty to keep private buyers' worries at bay. It's impressively roomy, too, and there's space aplenty for bodies and bags. Where it starts to fall down is the cabin, which we find lacklustre in this class - it's like a mini Sant Fe SUV with the fun and design pizazz taken out. Take your pick from a 1.7- or 2.0-litre diesel and there's a 1.6 petrol turbo too. The engines perform well, with competitive acceleration and the Tucson handles well, bordering on fun at times. Just a shame the ride is a bit busy for UK roads, with a distinct patter around uneven surfaces.
The one we’d buy
The 1.7 diesel - pick your power to suit your punch
The one we’d avoid like the plague
The 175bhp 1.6 petrol turbo ain't great for tax
Rivals to consider
Ford Kuga, Nissan Qashqai, Renault Kadjar
It's well priced, attractive, well equipped and has a l-o-n-g warranty
Unfortunate character bypass
