If you’re in the market for a small SUV, most people with experience of the sector are likely to point you in the direction of the Nissan Qashqai. Many rival SUVs try to out-perform this well-regarded model, but few come close.
The new Hyundai Tucson is the latest to try. It is a slightly larger replacement for the car maker's ix35 and is offered with a selection of engines, two- or four-wheel drive, automatic or manual transmissions and a wide range of equipment.
Prices for the new Tucson start at £18,695 but the version reviewed here – a mid-spec SE Nav with the entry-level 1.7-litre diesel engine – costs £22,795. That’s a fair price, especially when you consider that it comes with lots of kit and a five-year, unlimited mileage warranty.
