Is a used Hyundai Tucson a good car?

The Hyundai Tucson has built itself a reputation as a solid, affordable mid-sized SUV. Its styling has always been inoffensive and unquestionably lacking sex appeal, but the fourth-generation, on sale since 2020, goes for a bolder is better approach.

Whether it looks cool or fussy is down to personal opinion, but it’s certainly eye-catching. What’s not up for debate is the interior, which is not only well-built but also much posher than before, with a big 10.3-infotainment display and digital dials as standard.

Front passengers will find the Tucson a comfortable place to be, but while the rear seats are spacious they have an awkward, uncomfortable design, while the Isofix points are tough to get at. Boot space is huge though, at 620 litres in the non-hybridised version, while the mild hybrid has the least space at 577 litres because of the battery placement.

There are no diesel engines, which is a shame for long-distance drivers, but there are hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains available that offer impressive fuel economy. The plug-in can travel nearly 40 miles on battery power and has low CO2 emissions, meaning tax is low.

What to look for when buying a second hand Hyundai Tucson

Hyundai has a great reliability record and there aren’t any major issues that have been reported in the latest Tucson. It has also scored first in class honours among recent reliability surveys completed by owners.

If you’re buying a plug-in hybrid version, one key thing to check is whether it comes with charging cables. These are usually stored in a bag in the boot and can be quite expensive to replace.

The Tucson is also quite a large SUV and doesn’t have full parking sensors as standard, so keep an eye out for damage to the bodywork and alloy wheels. Previous generation models also had issues with the electronics, so spend some time checking everything works as it should.

Hyundai Tucson FAQs

The Hyundai Tucson is available with four-wheel drive on the 180hp mild hybrid and 265hp plug-in hybrid powertrains. As standard, it is front-wheel drive.

The standard engine achieves up to 42.2mpg on the WLTP combined cycle, while the mild hybrid version offers a minor improvement of up to 44.1mpg with front-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox. The hybrid promises up to 50.4mpg, while the plug-in hybrid’s official figures are about 200mpg, though this is only achievable if you do an excellent job of keeping the batteries topped up. Owner reports suggest 50-60mpg is more likely in mixed driving.

Hyundai as a brand has an excellent track record with reliability and the latest Tucson continues that trend. Recent ownership surveys have put it at the top of its class for reliability and repair costs.

If you can charge at home or somewhere you regularly travel, such as your place of work, the plug-in hybrid model’s low running costs might just offset the fact it’s more expensive.

The Hyundai Tucson is 4.5 metres long, 1.9 metres wide (excluding door mirrors) and 1.7 metres high. The wheelbase is 2.7 metres.

The entry-level 1.6-litre petrol has 150hp whether you get it with or without mild hybrid assistance, though this is increased to 180hp for the four-wheel drive version. The hybrid makes 230hp and the plug-in hybrid gets 265hp.

The Tucson is made at a Hyundai factory in Nošovice, Czech Republic.
