With this post-2015 third generation Tucson model, Hyundai got serious about the growing Qashqai-class family SUV Crossover segment, delivering pretty much everything customers were looking for in this kind of car in one smartly-styled reasonably spacious package. Early buyers were told that this car would 'change the way they drove'. This model has certainly changed this Korean brand's fortunes in this sector.
Like all SUV Crossovers, this one is going to look appealing at first glance, blending the style of an SUV, the sensible practicality of a 5-seater mid-sized MPV and the affordability of a family hatchback into one practical lifestyle-orientated package. With this MK3 model Tucson, Hyundai interpreted this formula in a way that the mass market decided it really liked and in the process, gave itself a thoroughly credible Qashqai competitor.
It's nicely built, smart to look at, efficient to run and quite capable in 4WD form of getting almost anywhere an ordinary driver might want to go. No, it's not perfect - a class-leading family hatch would offer slightly sharper handling and better all-round visibility - but these aren't deal-breaking issues. More significant will be the value proposition and this should combine with this car's other attributes to attract plenty of conquest buyers to this growing South Korean brand on the used market. It's very much a Hyundai of the modern era. Which makes it a very competitive car indeed.
