Hyundai Tucson 2.0 GLS S/R Review
Korean Pop Icon

So we know that big SUVs can be ungainly around bends and when you want to do some hot-hatchery driving. What about medium SUVS? Are they better or worse, more comfortable or less and the questions go on unceasingly. This reminds me somewhat of the story of some bears and little girl with golden hair, and her search for just the right fit.

We’ve taken a look at the biggest brother of the Hyundai family, the Santa Fe, last week and decided that it was a pretty nice car for barrelling around in a straight line down the highways. We’ve also taken an in depth look at the far end of the segment which is the BMW X5 and figured it was a lot of class and quality.

What about this new soon-to-be-icon (at least I reckon) that was released not too long ago on our roads? From the word go it looks fantastic, and everyone that I’ve met hasn’t said anything remotely on the contrary. Inside and how it drives? Well let’s find out.
