Tucson vs Kuga: its a buyers’ market
Fluid design now does dirt roads too
The Tucson is back, well, back to being called Tucson instead of the iX35, and Hyundai’s popular sport ute now boasts an advanced AWD system developed by Hyundai in conjunction with Magna Powertrain. The system has active cornering control and incorporates both Hillstart Assist and Downhill Brake Control to turn the latest SUV from Korea into a capable offroader. Dave Fall drove it on the launch and compares it against the popular Kuga in next week’s Wheels.
New Kuga even better kitted
The new Ford Kuga made its debut at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week. The new Kuga now offers Ford’s Perpendicular Parking technology; active collision avoidance system; adaptive lights and the hands- free Liftgate. The launch date and pricing for SA is yet to be confirmed. When it arrives, this popular sport ute from Ford will be aimed squarely at other medium- sized utes like the Hyundai Tucson, Toyota Rav4 and even Audi Q3.
