Hyundai Tucson – When You Need a Bit of Everything In Your SUV


Hyundai is known for offering impeccable quality and functionality at an affordable price, and the Hyundai Tucson is no different. There are newer SUVs available in the market from competitors; however, not every competitor will be able to offer the same value for money. 

The 2021 model came to our shores in April and has already seen very high demand. This is not just because of the price point (and the features it offers) but also for the modern aesthetic it offers with the front grill and claw-like rear lights. Its interior is equally intriguing, featuring buttons and a touch screen alike.

Our Review

Said to be a ‘hardened’ car for the masses, the Hyundai Tucson has always managed to draw a very loyal fanbase towards it. This vehicle is one of the prime competitors to giants, such as Toyota, Nissan, and other manufacturers.

Hyundai Tucson is equally comfortable on and off-road because of the ride height, suspension, and the safety features it offers. The 2021 model boasts a longer list than its 2020 version, while the cost-effectiveness isn’t that noticeable (from the time of release).  

You can go with a front and all-wheel drive option, depending on the performance and drive terrain you are looking for. Of course, the all-wheel drive is much better for those who aren’t shy of taking their vehicle off the road, but you may have to pay a bit extra for it. 

However, even the rear-wheel drive option is powerful enough to tow up to 1,600 kg of braked tow behind it, making it the perfect family car. 

It is not really what you can call an executive car but is better suited for personal use. You have the option of getting luxury features installed as well, such as heated seats, steering, hybrid gauge cluster, 7-inch screen, 8 speakers, and more. 


The 2021 and 2022 options feature a new, attractive design, both inside and out. Hyundai Tucson is also curvy, with cuts and curves in all the right places. This opens new doors for those who like to get some decals installed and the car detailed. However, even with custom paint, it gives off that sporty look you may want. 

Considering the price range, this is one family car that has a bit of everything. Read our impartial review of the Hyundai Tucson 2021 and 2022 on our website today for more!
