Value

5 out of 5

Nothing to beat it with the five year warranty and low Hyundai prices.

Costs

Thirsty around town like all SUVs but this is heavier than most.

Performance

4 out of 5

Very adequate. The engine is surprisingly powerful.

Reliability

4 out of 5

I have had two clutches in 15k miles. This is because I have to reverse a 1.5tonne trailer on a steep piece of grass. Honestly I should have a low gear ratio but nevertheless the clutch is weak. The 5 year warrantee replaces it every time!

This is not to everyones taste but it certainly has a muscular look.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Rear seats are also extremely good. This car lets you relax on the open road. It purrs at speed. The lifting tail gate without an external spare wheel make loading the back far better than the competition.

Security

3 out of 5

No problems except that the key fob is always going off in ones pocket. Fortunately this usually locks it but it is a bit irritating.

Service
