Advantages Comfortable ride
Disadvantages None so far
|Value for Money|
With a new arrival on the way we decides that my trendy little sports car was no longer practical and I wanted something that had a bit of size and stability to it, we could not afford a Range Rover Sport as that was well out of our price bracket and the high running costs were not attractive either however my father had a Hyundai Tucson and raves about it so I had a couple of test drives and decided that was the one for me epsecially as it comes with a five year warranty. We opted for the 2.0 CDX version.It is a five door SUV and it is a chunky little car with a high riding position and while it is not the most attractive car I found it sort of appealing as it has a rugged appeal to it, the funny thing is that the side on view is better that the front on view in my opinion. We paif £17,125 for ours new which included some discounts however hubby did the haggling so I have no idea whether that is a good price and there was no trade in as we sold my car privately. Ours is black in colour, the choices were not great to be honest and the black one was the best looking that I saw especially with the nice new shiny alloys.
It is proberly the quietest diesel engine I have ever driven and I'm really impressed with how comfortable the whole ride is whether slowly trundling around time or nipping along country roads the suspension is great and the road handling is excellent, I also find that being that little bit higher on the road improves visibility as well.It is pretty good when it comes to fuel considering the size, apparentkly you will get about 45mpg on the motorway and about 35 mpg in the city however I have no idea if that is correct for that I'm trusting the other half.
One of the things that I like is that there are three sockets for any gadgets to be stored which means the hands free kit can be on and my phone can be charged at the same time. It also has plenty of space in the boot for baby stuff and the rear seats can be collapsed to create even more room. The glass in the back has a bit of a tint to it as well which helps with privacy.It has to be serviced every 10,000 miles however we are yet to hit that mark as we still have 2,000 more to go however I guess if you do a lot of mileage then this is a cost to consider. At the time of purchase the car came with an unlimited 5 year warranty, break down cover and also some sort of anto corrosion protection.
Ovearll I love this car and would certainly recommend it, I have yet to use the 4wd button and doubt I ever will but it is nice to know that it is there especially when we start camping again when our daughter is a bit older.
