Make your presence known and don’t be shy about it! The new Hyundai Tucson’s refreshed look immediately stands out from the crowd, from its redesigned headlamps and large radiator grille to its dynamic-looking wheel designs, rear combination lamps and rear bumper.
The power from the two-litre engine is plenty and suitable for all driving conditions, in town or on the highway. The eight-speed automatic gearbox gives you a smooth and relaxing drive, while it changes between gears quickly and responds to kickdowns eagerly. This smooth but quick acceleration makes the Tucson very responsive and enjoyable to drive, plus it keeps you equal to any traffic situation.
Small SUVs and crossovers are especially popular right now and there are many models on offer. The new Tucson offers competitive interior accommodation for a whole family with its ample headroom and legroom, and thoughtfully designed storage spaces mean you can bring all your small items with no problem.
The refreshed cabin has a prominent standalone touchscreen, so the rest of the dashboard settles lower down and increases the perception of space. Not that the roomy Tucson needs more interior accommodation. Hyundai’s touchscreens are one of the best OEM systems of any car manufacturer and are very easy to use; Hyundai deserves extra credit for keeping the Tucson’s chunky, easy-to-use climate controls rather than trying to integrate them into the touchscreen.
The cabin materials are touch-friendly and make for a remarkably comfortable environment which is as good as some more expensive cars. The glovebox is a good size, as is the space under the armrest; plus there are cupholders that will take the largest of lattes.
Hyundai and the new Tucson are firmly in the smartphone age; just look at the provision for USBs and wireless charging, not for just one, but for a couple of smartphones.
The more premium-feeling Tucson and its various capabilities outclass many a rival car. If you’re looking for this kind of car then the Tucson should definitely be a strong contender on your shortlist. Skyline Automotive staff are ready and waiting to give you their very competitive prices and special offers.

EXTERIOR The new Tucson gives a big, bold and well-finished impression, especially with its attractive alloy wheels and quality chromework. The large front grille, sculpted lines and aggressive stance make a good match for your modern family; the large rear opening tailgate reveals maximum capability and practicality.
INTERIOR The initial impression of quality applies equally to the interior to which there is easy access with five large doors; The interior is really roomy with good head and legroom, plus plenty of cargo space and it gives all the comfort and flexibility you need for all the family. The large infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, bright and clear digital displays, user-friendly controls, easy-to-use connectivity and a great sound system will be appreciated by both driver and passengers of all ages
