In car years, the Hyundai Tucson has been on the road for a long time, since 2004 to be precise. The South Korean brand that manufactures this compact, crossover SUV, even named it after The Old Pueblo – the dry, mountainous city of Tucson in Arizona.
So, what has that intro got to do with this car? Well, every car driver hopes the car they choose, goes a long way; and the third-generation Hyundai Tucson, has been tried, tested and judged to be the Best Car for Long Distances in this year’s Auto Trader New Car Awards. This wasn’t judges who normally sit at their desks, receiving car keys like their Jeremy Clarkson. These judges, were real car owners, about 43,000 real car owners, who day in, day out travel up and down the old UK country in a Hyundai Tucson.
What the judges have to say, about Hyundai Tucson
Ivan Aistrop, Auto Trader’s Road Test Editor, said: “The Tucson turned out to be the firm favourite with the high-mileage owners in our survey, and that should be no surprise to anyone. The big Hyundai feels comfortable, stable and settled at motorway cruising speeds, and things also stay pretty quiet on a long motorway schlep. The generous luxury equipment also helps keep you comfortable, connected and entertained, and with good space and practicality, the same should go for those in the back.”
James Wilson at FCS Vehicle Solutions says: “The third-generation Tucson has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2015 and it has become a firm favourite with our fleet customers. The SUV is a competitive segment, but the Hyundai Tucson holds its own in terms of practicality. Not only that, it is a comfortable ride, there’s plenty of passenger and luggage space, and it has luxury equipment.”
The Hyundai Tucson is available from £20,160 (1.6 GDi 132PS Petrol Blue Drive 2WD Manual) up to £34,230 (2.0 CRDi 185PS Diesel 4WD Automatic).
