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.

I was quite skeptical about this service but as the saying goes - if you don't try, you don't I tried. I've managed to fetch a good price through this platform. I would recommend all sellers to consider using this platform if you want to sell your vehicle.

SwiftQuote was swift in quoting a price for my car! It was the highest scrap value that I checked around. After bringing the car to the dealer, the whole process took less than 10mins. I was impressed! Thank you, SwiftQuote!
