2019 Hyundai Tucson Elite 2.0 GDi 2WD review

There's a lot to like about a front-wheel-drive Tucson with luxury levels of kit and a relatively reasonable price tag. But the naturally aspirated petrol engine with its six-speed auto transmission, well, that's another matter entirely.

2018 Hyundai Tucson Highlander review

There's no doubt the Hyundai Tucson is a popular choice in the mid-size SUV segment, and the top-spec Highlander is the pick if you want all the fruit – and then some. But is it the best bang for buck?

Comparison: 2018 Honda CR-V v Hyundai Tucson

At this end of the SUV spectrum, it's all about sharp pricing and value for money. Everybody wants to get into an SUV, but which one should you go for? It can be pretty confusing. Here, Paul tests two top competitors in the medium SUV segment.

Read the full article here. The Hyundai Tucson is Australia's second most popular SUV behind the Mazda CX-5, ergo one of the market's top-selling vehicles full stop. By contrast, the newly renamed Ford Escape (nee Kuga) is a perennial underachiever, highly regarded critically but comparatively ignored by buyers...

2018 Medium SUV Mega Test

Mid-2018 marked another milestone moment in Australian new-car sales. The mid-sized SUV displaced the small car as Australia’s favourite vehicle type in June. It happened again in August, September and October. It was perhaps only inevitable after SUVs started outselling passenger cars in 2017...

2018 Honda CR-V VTi-S v Hyundai Tucson Active X comparison

SUV sales are going nuts in Australia. Everybody wants to get into an SUV, but which one should you go for? It can be pretty confusing. If you don't have stacks of money to spend, but equally you don't want to be stuck with a base model, we've lined up two cars you should consider if you're after a mid-sized SUV...

Ford Escape Titanium v Hyundai Tucson Highlander petrol SUV comparison

The Hyundai Tucson is Australia's second most popular SUV behind the Mazda CX-5, ergo one of the market's top-selling vehicles full stop. By contrast, the newly renamed Ford Escape (nee Kuga) is a perennial underachiever, highly regarded critically but comparatively ignored by buyers. We want to investigate whether this discrepancy is justified...

2016 Hyundai Tucson Highlander (AWD) review

I purchased a new Tucson in November 2015 as a novated leasing package through work. This worked out well for me due to my line of work and repayments. The Hyundai replaced my 2011 Ford Fiesta Zetec, which had a myriad of issues. From the get-go, it was issue after issue. The interior door handle came off. The Bluetooth would drop out constantly...

2015 Hyundai Tucson Active X (FWD) review

Firstly, I would like to acknowledge CarAdvice for creating a great initiative for car aficionados and car owners alike to share their experiences, positive and negative. The model in review is a 2015 Hyundai Tucson Active X. For eagle-eyed readers, they would note that this is one of the four-star rated Tucsons...

2016 Hyundai Tucson Highlander R-Series (AWD) review

In short, this is a fantastic car. We've only had it one week, but we absolutely love it. We did consider a Mazda CX-5 but it would have been over $8000 more than the Tucson while also lacking some of the features. And a small sunroof as opposed to the moonroof in the Tucson and no powered tailgate. The diesel engine is powerful and the styling and look of the car is great...

2016 Hyundai Tucson Highlander (AWD) review

I honestly thought I would never see the day I would buy a Hyundai. This isn't to say I didn't think the brand had come a long way since the era of the Excel and Accent. I must also say that I am/was a station wagon man prior to having a family. I know debate rages about SUVs not being a driver's car and I get that...
