Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 28 - 40 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

The Tucson seems good value, although the similar Kia Sportage is cheaper and equally well equipped while the superior Suzuki Grand Vitara is similarly priced. The thirsty V6 is best avoided but whichever model you go for, you’ll find Hyundai servicing and parts reasonable while the five-year warranty means any unexpected costs are taken care of for a large chunk of the cars life.

There’s no low emission model in the Tucson line-up and the cleanest engine – the 2.0-litre diesel – isn’t particularly green with a CO2 output of 187g/km (184g/km in two-wheel drive models) and an average fuel economy of 40mpg.

Hyundai has a good reputation for mechanical reliability. It also has the reassurance of a five year warranty to protect you should anything go wrong.
