WHAT’S NEW

PRICE

The price has risen over the runout model and the sharp-ish deals are only on the base Go and Ac­tive X. The Elite and High­lander are at full re­tail so be sure to hag­gle.

The flag­ship is loaded, in­clud­ing LED low and high-beams, heated and cooled front seats, panorama sun­roof and wire­less phone charg­ing.

The base 2.0 has had a mi­nor tweak but the 1.6 turbo and 2.0 turbo diesels are unchanged. A new eight-speed auto on the diesel im­proves per­for­mance and econ­omy.

TECH PER­FOR­MANCE DRIV­ING

Sus­pen­sion has been re­tuned to re­duce sharp­ness over bumps, al­though the cheap­est two are bet­ter to drive than the flag­ship High­lander, due in large part to the more cush­ioned tyres.

The styling changes are sub­tle but the grille and head­lights have sharper an­gles and the bumpers, tail­gate and rear lights are new. The big im­prove­ment: the new dash brings the Tuc­son up to speed with ri­vals.
