The Auto Trader expert verdict:
Available new from £28,760
The latest Hyundai Tucson launches straight into the highly competitive mid-size SUV market with a choice of hybrid engines (up to and including a full plug-in option), generous specification, high-tech interior and decisively more stylish look than its predecessor. Clearly the Tucson has aspirations to move upmarket and is priced accordingly, costing more in its hybrid version than a like-for-like Toyota RAV4 by way of example. With strong rivals including the Peugeot 3008 and a new Nissan Qashqai on the way Hyundai will have to hope its new-found sense of style will be enough for the Tucson to make its mark.
Reasons to buy:
- Premium look and feel
- Lots of standard tech
