Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

The cabin of the Tucson is drab and dominated by grey plastics that are scratchy and feel cheap. The thin leather seats feel low rent too as does the aftermarket stereo – there’s also no reach adjustment on the steering column. On the plus side the layout is simple and easy to get in with while the climate control is straightforward to operate and the instrument dials clear.

The high mounted gear lever is well placed but unfortunately the Tucson feels distinctly budget inside.

Thanks to a spacious cabin the Tucson is comfortable on the move, although the firm ride takes the edge off overall refinement. The seats are wide and soft, but don’t offer much support, however passengers in the back get decent head and legroom. All models come with air conditioning as standard along with electric windows in the front and back.
