The Hyundai Tucson Somfort

Hyundai has revised its Tucson SUV line-up, including the addition of a new two-wheel-drive version.

The 2.0 Comfort model – which costs from £14,695 - comes with a variety of features including air conditioning, privacy glass and body-coloured bumpers and trim.

It also comes with electric windows, front fog lights, dual front and side airbags and 16-inch alloy wheels.

Powered by a 139bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine, Hyundai claims that it will do 35.3mpg and accelerate from 0 to 60mph in 10.4 seconds, with a top speed of 112mph.

Diesel version

It also comes in a diesel version with a choice of six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission.

The manual model is also offered in ‘Style’ trim at £16,695, and adds more standard equipment, including climate control, cruise control, heated seats and reverse parking sensors.

The automatic model is available in range-topping ‘Premium’ trim at £18,695, and adds full leather trim, electronic stability control and traction control, automatic headlights, a sunroof and electric folding door mirrors.

Hyundai says that four-wheel-drive Tucsons also remain available, priced at £17,695 for the Style model and £18,695 for the Premium, both with six-speed manual gearboxes.

Fuel economy

Which? Car editor Richard Headland said: 'Hyundai has followed the growing trend to offer 4x4 looks in a two-wheel-drive package, to keep costs down and to boost fuel economy.

'For most drivers, two-wheel drive will be fine, unless you need the extra traction of a four-wheel-drive system for off road excursions.'
