YOU MIGHT BE WONDERING WHY THIS CAPTIVATING MACHINE HAS earned such a special place in our hearts. Well, it’s not just a car; it’s a bewitching charmer. Our long-term review serves a dual purpose. First and foremost, it’s a testament to Tucson’s elevated premium status, which has catapulted it above its peers. It exudes perfection in every facet, whether it’s the opulent cabin that never fails to inspire awe when you enter or the remarkable comfort it bestows upon you as you journey through any terrain.

But there’s more to this story than mere opulence. It’s about the cutting-edge technology and the robust diesel power that effortlessly propels this vehicle. Beneath its hood lies a 2-litre diesel engine; trust me, it feels like a force of nature with immense torque. However, there’s a caveat; you might have already guessed it! Yes, the somewhat modest fuel efficiency might send a brief shiver through the hearts of those who prioritise mileage, especially in a demographic that has long favoured frugal diesel engines.

Yet, despite this minor drawback, the Tucson maintains its status as our preferred companion for all our extended journeys. It’s the charmer that never fails to captivate us, even if it occasionally makes our fuel-conscious side a tad uneasy.
