The mid-range SUV shown here is the Hyundai TUCSON DIESEL ESTATE 1.7 CRDi Blue Drive SE Nav 5dr 2WD manual (browse deals on this vehicle.) As we touched on in our recent Kia Optima review, Hyundai was a traditionally a brand of vehicle that many customers would not consider. As a relatively unknown South-Korean car manufacturer, they had to compete against better known staple brands like Ford, Vauxhall and Peugeot plus growing “German-eque” products like Skoda and Seat. Like Kia, Hyundai adopted the policy of product confidence, via a 5-year warranty, and by creating vehicles which essentially had higher specification than comparable options. Like the Kia Sportage, the ix-20 really pushed Hyundai onto the map and opened up customers to their other products – the i10, i20, i30 and i40 range. Even the more luxury SUV Santa Fe has been somewhat popular.
In terms of the Tuscon shown here, this is based on the following configuration:
· Pearl – Phantom black
· Cloth – Blue/black
· 17″ alloy wheels
On the technical side, for a company car user note the P11d £25,971.00 and CO2 of 119g/km. The 1685CC 6 speed manual engine delivers 61.7 combined MPG, 116ps and 0-62 times of 13.7 seconds. On the servicing side, it’s every 24 months or 20,000 miles, whichever is sooner.
If you are looking for a 2 year personal or business contract hire deal on low mileage, you might be able to arrange this without ever having to service the vehicle!
Where Hyundai have made some inroads, is the introduction of a 1.7 CRDI auto (DCT), which enables customers to benefit from an automatic transmission but without the less fuel efficient 2.0 4wd setup. Some of our older drivers do want the ease of an auto engine on this type of vehicle but without the purchasing costs and running costs that a 2.0 setup dictates.
