Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0
  • More dramatic styling, but roomier than old model
  • Hybrid batteries take up some space
  • Rear seat passengers can adjust front seats for more room

The slightly larger proportions over the old Tucson result in boot space increasing by 33 litres and rear legroom by 26mm, while the driver can also remotely adjust the front passenger seat to allow the rear-seat passenger to spread out a little more - a feature normally found on more expensive luxury cars.

The battery in the hybrid models is placed under the rear seat to minimise intrusion, with boot space claimed to be 546 litres for the mild hybrid diesel. However, for maximum load-carrying capacity, the conventional petrol engine betters this with 620 litres.

The hybrid’s wide, deep boot stows 616 litres (1,795 litres, seats folded). That’s fractionally down on the petrol car’s capacity though, with the 48-volt hybrid taking a bigger hit at 577/1756 litres.

Hyundai Tucson (2021) luggage space


  • Not yet tested by Euro NCAP
  • Wide range of safety equipment available
  • We're not yet sure how much of it is standard

Safety equipment includes lane-keeping assist, rear cross traffic alert, driver attention warning, navigation-based adaptive cruise control and autonomous emergency braking that can detect a car, pedestrian, cyclist or animal.

The most important of these systems is wrapped up in Hyundai’s Highway Drive Assist semi-autonomous adaptive cruise control system. It can brake and accelerate the car automatically to keep a pre-set distance from other vehicles, while using Lane Keeping Assist to keep it on the straight and narrow on well-marked motorways and dual carriageways.
