Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

It's certainly no BMW X5, but Hyundai has done well in spreading the budget between clever 4x4 technology and luxury interior gizmos. Those seats look plain but were comfy for more than a couple of hours. However, fake wood trim clashes with fake carbon-fibre dials set in acres of genuine plastic. If you've driven an old Isuzu or Daihatsu Fourtrak, then the Terracan will seem luxurious.

Everything is easily reached and clearly laid out. Most people will find the steering column switchgear a bit awkward - it's reversed on Korean cars so the indicator/lights stalk is on the right-hand side. Visibility is good, parking surprisingly easy, although rear-parking sensors would improve it even more.

Plenty of room for two adults in the back (or three children). Centre armrest and electric rear windows. Side steps will help kids climb into the rear.
