Like most of our awards, this category was decided by feedback collated from a survey of more than 40,000 car owners, all of whom rated their car in 16 key areas. That means an Auto Trader New Car Award is a real stamp of approval from people that live with the car day-in, day-out, and it makes each winner a true consumer champion.
High-mileage owners were particularly impressed with the Tucson’s reliability and durability, giving the car top marks in both areas. It also came out top among regular motorway drivers for the cost of servicing and repairs, and it came second for comfort.
Here are just a few of the comments that owners made about the Tuscon…
- “For such a big car the economy is very good, even with urban driving.”
- “I like sitting high up and it is a very comfortable car.”
- “Cost of running it and how it looks, and also all the safety features and very long warranty.”
- “The car looks fantastic in Aura Blue. The amount of space in the car is also very liberating.”
