Before we get carried away with the review, here’s a reminder: the Tucson is pronounced as ‘too-sohn’, and not ‘tuck-sun’. It’s a Spanish word, and the name of a city in Arizona. The Hyundai Tucson is a car that has consistently been a top seller for the brand since the first-generation model in 2004. The all-new fourth-gen car has just landed in Singapore, and it’s available with two powertrain variants: a base-model with a 1.6-litre turbo engine, and a petrol-electric hybrid.

The Tucson has moved up the scale quite a bit since 2004, and the 2021 model is really quite a premium, quasi-luxury SUV in the same vein as the Toyota Harrier. The design language is taken straight from the same book as the current Hyundai Avante. When buffed up into a crossover SUV form it actually looks pretty impressive in that edgy but not too overdone way that was a polarizing thing with the Toyota C-HR.
