Hyundai Tucson sizes and dimensions guide

The Hyundai Tucson has already received a fair deal of praise for its handsome looks, stylish interior and large boot. Considering the buyers looking at the big Hyundai, it’s important to know whether or not it will be able to fit into your family’s life.

We’ve put together all the dimensions, sizes, weights and capacities you need to know about the new Tucson. Don’t forget, you can put the Hyundai Tucson in our car configurator to see how much carwow could help you save.

Exterior dimensions

The Tucson is a little bigger than the ix35 that it replaces so, if you could only just fit that model into your garage, you may find you’ll struggle when it comes to parking your new Tucson.

Exterior dimensions
Length  4,475mm
Width 1,849mm
Height 1,651mm

Interior dimensions

The Tucson offers passengers plenty of space in which to get comfortable. The Mazda CX-5 offers a few millimetres more front headroom, but the Tucson offers a full 13mm more legroom for driver and front seat passengers than the Mazda.

In the back, passengers will find the CX-5 slightly more spacious in terms of legroom. Where the CX-5 offers 997mm of rear legroom, the Tucson can only manage 970mm.

Interior dimensions
Headroom (front/rear) 1,006mm/996mm
Shoulder room (front/rear) 1,450mm/1,399mm
Legroom (front/rear) 1,054mm/970mm

Luggage capacity

The Tucson easily outclasses the CX-5 and the Nissan Qashqai for boot space. These two competitors can only offer up 1,620 and 1,585 litres respectively with the rear seats folded flat, compared to the Hyundai’s 1,753 litres.

Luggage capacity
Rear seats up 878 litres
Rear seats folded 1,753 litres

Turning circle

The Tucson offers a respectable 10.6m turning circle – more than a metre below than the CX-5’s 11.7m. Surprisingly, not even the smaller Ford Focus can match the Tucson in the turning circle department – needing a full 11m curb to curb to turn around.


The Tucson and the Mazda CX-5 are pretty much equally heavy, with only a few kilograms separating the two at both ends of the option list spectrum. If fuel economy is one of your main concerns, avoid opting for the four-wheel-drive system and automatic gearbox on your new Tucson.

Lightest 1,508kg – 2WD 2.0-litre SE model
Heaviest 1,683kg – 4WD 1.6-litre Limited model
