The Hyundai Tucson 1.6 GLS DCT Turbo clearly defines what it means to be a star performer. While our roads are currently being crammed with a whole slew of SUVs and Crossovers, the Tucson does take the cake with versatile utility, and good performance to match.
The Tucson stands out with its equipment levels, together with the generous interior space, providing excellent passenger comfort. The new turbocharged 1.6 provides a refined drive, while the re-worked suspension has made the car such a joy to drive.
Quite easily, for a car this attainable to the mainstream, it isn't difficult to understand why it is so deserving of this year's award.
