Hyundai Tucson 1.6 GLS DCT Turbo (A) Review
The handsome-looking Hyundai Tucson gets up and running with the trend of turbocharging. We find out if the Korean SUV can keep up with the pack.

I Like It! `
Tested several cars but ruled them out because; - X1 - great car but 3 cylinders, why?? - Forester - CVT - where's the soul?? - XC40 - very nice. But I think not worth the money. OMV seems low. - Tiguan - love the power, but plasticy interior was a let down. - CX-5 - nice premium feel but 2.0L engine lacked pace. - Karoq, Ateca - very similar to Tiguan as they are basically the same engine. But I'm bit worried about the brand's lack of presence here. The Tucson was the last on my list and it impressed. The car is well equipped with lots of useful features. Seating was very comfortable and space was good. However, I would have loved paddle shifters on the steering and the "Kick under the bumper to open and close the tailgate" Feature to be included. Boot space is generous but though its no big deal I was hoping to see some hooks for shopping bags and more compartments for nick-nacks. Driving wise, the 1.6L turbo DCT pulled very willingly just with a slight nudge on the accelerator. There seems to be no end to the car's willingness to keep going. Really enjoyed the exhilarating acceleration. And for once, my wife agreed!! On the downside, I did find the brakes a little soft, and the cornering a little wobbly. Granted, perhaps the car was tuned more for comfort. On the whole, a well balanced package. Was very happy and booked myself the range topping model.. I.E. With Sunroof, motorised and ventilated front seats.

Where have I been? `
I have avoided test driving this car as its interior looks a little boring. When I finally tested the 1.6T I was shocked. If I close my eyes (not literally as I am driving), it feels so Audi-like. Endless torrents of torque kept pushing the car in a very refined manner. Ride was very comfortable and supple. I picked the 2l in the end, as I prefer to have the panoramic sunroof, and don't mind a slower ride. The 2l is just as quiet but not as fast and exciting as the 1.6T. Test drive it and you will know.

The Value And Comfortable Hyundai Tucson `
Hyundai Tucson has marked its re-entry in the market, albeit in an all-new avatar, and with a lot more bells and whistles. The South-Korean automaker, after years of deliberation, has brought back the SUV to bridge the gap between Creta and Santa Fe. The all-new Hyundai Tucson SUV is available in both the petrol and diesel fuel trims with a total of five variants: MT, AT GL, MT, AT GL and AT GLS. The exterior styling cues have been taken from the Hyundai’S Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 Design Philosophy, just like Elantra and Creta.

Give the K-car a try and you will not regret it `
I had the chance to "Own" The 1.6T over a weekend. Exterior - instead of resembling an SUV, this somewhat a raised hatch, needs no intro. Features - comes with keyless entry, e-tailgate, corner light, chrome door handle w welcome light. Also has see-me-home light if set to auto headlight. Wing mirror unfolds when u near front door even before pressing button on door handle to unlock. Key fob also has tailgate open / close button; Cover is nice color of brown / gray depend on lighting - very special color. Interior - gettin in is easier since it being raise hatchback instead of full SUV. Being all-black & local fitted leather, nothing to shout about. But leather is taut, interior space as good as previous version except less headroom. Driver gets electric seats adjustment w e-lumbar adjustment. Steering is reach & rake adjustable. Gear knob nice to hold & button on it is matt chrome. Centre console box cum armrest can be a lil longer though no issue w resting of elbows for me n partner. Aircon is cold even during hot weather (new car noted). All buttons & steering control (incl cruise control but not adaptive) well put with no freeplay. Blind spot detection avail for my trim. Seats are relatively firm but comfy (as a gauge i can only say not as firm as contis like BMW X1 / Land Rover Disco); Front headrest can be moved up n forward. Aircon is manual adjust using knobs. Rear seats has centre armrest w cupholders. Ride - chassis feel taut when going over humps at an angle. Very stable ride (dry weather tested only); Doesn't panic when accelerate around bends. Have engine sound, but also power. Doesn't feel like 1.6T, more like 1.8T - 2T. Accel til 3-figure speeds still stable; I thot was 2-figure speeds. When travel at 80-90 I thot was 60. On Kumho tyres (not conti / jap tyres) with 17" Alloys. Going over uneven surfaces / humps / strips felt comfy. NVH insulation is definitely better than some Jap rivals where engine makes lotsa noise but car doesn't move as urgently. I enjoyed listening to music on a car for first time, given all my previous were BnB cars. ICE came with very good sound quality, with 10-band EQ, GPS and CD / video / audio player.
