2016 Hyundai Tucson Active X (FWD): owner review
Owner Review | 4 Dec 2019
We were downsizing from a much loved 100 Series Toyota Landcruiser , used to tow our now long gone caravan, so finding a smaller SUV we were going to be happy with we thought was going to be challenging. When we first went looking for a new mid-sized SUV we visited all the dealers for the vehicles we were interested in - including the Toyota Rav 4, Mazda CX-5, Honda CRV, Kia Sportage, Nissan X-Trail and the Hyundai Tucson - and obtained brochures with specifications. I then entered all the information into a spread sheet so I would have a direct comparison. Anal? I know - but if we are going to spend our hard earned on a new vehicle we want to know exactly what we are getting for our money. I then found the Car Advice web site and so we were able to relate our own test drive experiences to those expressed in the reviews - extremely helpful. The process involved in test driving and choosing and buying the Hyundai Tucson Active X 2WD automatic is a lengthy article in itself but what I will say is that the Car Advice reviews on all the test vehicles were right on the money and strongly influenced our decision. We are not young, so ease of access was a priority. In the end the Tucson ticked all the boxes for us – ease of access, comfort and space, ride and handling, performance and economy and value for money. We also had an option for an interior finish other than black which clinched the deal as far as my wife was concerned. From a drivers perspective the driving position and the ergonomics of the seat was also the best of the vehicles tested. I have back problems so this was a very important consideration. This would be tested within two months of purchasing the Tucson when we did a road trip from our home in Logan Village, south of Brisbane, to Coffin Bay on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, a 2,500 klm trip over three days – and back, of course. The ergonomics of the seats was excellent and the ride and handling of the vehicle was also excellent. The fuel economy for the trip was around 7.2 litres per 100 klm with many long sections with the cruise control set at 110kph. The performance of the vehicle was tested when we overtook a road train travelling at 90kph west of Cobar. My wife was driving and was nervous about overtaking such a long vehicle but when she hit the accelerator the car responded like a thoroughbred and was soon past the road train at a speed I am not prepared to publish - but, to give you a hint, my knuckles lost their colour. She wanted to get away from that road train – and fast. We averaged eight hours driving per day on that trip and at the end of each day we did not feel overly tired which was very pleasing. Around town, which is where we have run up most of the 60,000 kilometres over the past three years, the Tucson is a joy to drive averaging around 8 litres per 100klm. I am a keen lawn bowler and I regularly take four other bowlers and their heavy bowls in the car and it handles a load like that with ease and provides comfort for the passengers without being cramped. I have owned new cars since the 1970's, the bad old days with the dealers, and the Tucson has not put a foot wrong and has not had one warranty issue. The service provided by my local Hyundai dealer has been first class, right down to the provision of a free courtesy vehicle. Last service the vehicle provided was a new Sante Fe Active, which I fell in love with - a very sneaky way for the dealer to get you to test drive a potential new car. As far as technology is concerned, the Active X provides all that we need including Apple Car Play which I use for music and navigation when connected to my Apple iPhone 6. I just love the voice control when making phone calls via Bluetooth, checking messages and choosing music – totally hands free. The only thing I can fault is probably the road noise which doesn't really bother me because I have significant hearing loss but it comes to the fore when I am wearing my hearing aids and I can understand the criticism I have heard from others. The Tucson is not hard on tyres. I expect to achieve 70,000 from the factory fitted Nexen tyres and the 60,000 service report says the vehicle still has significant thickness left on the brake pads which I am assuming means they shouldn't need changing until at least the 75,000klm service. I don’t drive the Tucson hard but I don’t pussy foot around either. When it comes to the Hyundai service we all should read the fine print because the sales people, like all the others, use the "fixed price" servicing as a selling point. BUT - it only relates to the very basic service costs such as the oil and filter change and the safety checks. The 45,000 and 60,000 services cost $529 and $715 respectively due to "other maintenance" such as air conditioning filters, brake fluid changes etc, etc. All this is reasonable when you look at it logically but they need to drop the bullshit sales pitch and tell people the real cost of servicing the vehicle. Realistically - I have no complaint because my Tucson is performing brilliantly. I have owned Holden’s, Fords, Mazda’s, Suzuki's, and a number of Toyota's over the years and this Tucson is another excellent vehicle and one of the best I have owned. Would I buy another one? – Most definitely.

2016 Hyundai Tucson Highlander (AWD) review
Owner Review | 9 Apr 2018
I purchased a new Tucson in November 2016 as a novated leasing package through work. This worked out well for me due to my line of work and repayments. The Hyundai replaced my 2011 Ford Fiesta Zetec which had a myriad of issues. From the get-go, it was issue after issue. The interior door handle came off. The Bluetooth would drop out constantly. The automatic transmission would shudder on take off. My car was one of the earliest cases of this shuddering issue. Sometimes it would happen mid drive. I returned it to the dealership who explained to me that it was the way I drove it, but I knew it wasn't the case. Eventually Ford repaired the car and tried to explain to me that the transmission was like this due to being a manual transmission, but "turned into an auto". Yep, that's how car dealers speak to women unfortunately. This is the reason I didn't go near a Kuga as a replacement. My Hyundai on the other hand is a turbo diesel. I really couldn't care less what model rolled into the driveway, provided it was automatic, had leather and a panoramic sunroof. My dad suggested a Hyundai Tucson as he himself works on cars in a panel shop. I was more inclined to check out a Veloster, but of course the practicality meant that I needed to be in a bigger car. I know that Korean cars have come a long way, so I wasn't completely rejecting the idea of driving one. Dad tells me i30's are made out of materials similar to that of a coke can, which was a bit offputting, but I still was going for the Tucson. Unfortunately the dealership experience was pretty poor in terms of getting pricing and a salesman to take a genuine interest in what I wanted in a car. Honestly, the moment I mentioned a novated lease, they all completely lost interest. I couldn't calls back from my local dealer after my visit where I barely got a GLIMPSE of the car, let alone a test drive. That's why I left it up to the lease company who sourced the car some 300km away. Rural dealers will always be keen to do do business it appears: take note. This isn't the first diesel I've driven as I very often drive Hiace bus's for work. My only gripe is the tractor like noise (like every diesel) and the servo not having enough diesel bowsers. That appears to be changing of late. Hyundai also kindly provided latex "diesel gloves" in the glove box which are pretty much food grade kitchen gloves. I've never seen anyone pull out their Hyundai gloves at the service station. Should I be the first? In terms of styling, I don't like the matte black trims around the wheel arches on most mid-size SUV's and sadly the Tucson was no different. I went the Pepper Grey paint so it wasn't as noticeable. In hindsight, that was a silly idea because I still can see it. Clever me. The rest of the car is well proportionate and I do like it's overall look compared to other cars similar to this from other brands. Technology is OK, but there isn't any Apple CarPlay. I connect my Spotify with a USB so it's still peachy. Don't ask how I managed this, but I still backed into a small tree with both the reverse sensors and camera in the car. Wireless charging wouldn't so astray but now I'm just picking on things. Space is adequate. I've moved house with it and most of my stuff can be jammed into it. The dogs are used to being in the back with the seats folded almost flat. The leather chairs are comfortable on long commutes as I was doing up to 200km per day for a while. I have to give it something though. I was a bit slack to service and did so around the 35,000km mark. The oil looked a little worse for wear apparently but the car was holding up just fine. Call me a bad car owner, but sometimes life gets in the way. I'd love if dealers could do a lube mobile kind of service for people who are equally as slack as me. Would I buy one again? Probably. But I really regretted my decision after seeing a Toyota CH-R. The Kona looks like my style too, different size but I don't mind it Should the Tucson live a trouble free life, then another Hyundai may be on the cards. After 65,000km though So far, so good. Thanks to Melissa for encouraging me to do a review in the comments. I didn't think people would want to read about my very unmaintained and neglected car . One day I will give it a wash.
