Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

LOOK­ING much like a shrunken Santa Fe, the Tuc­son is a prac­ti­cal al­ter­na­tive choice in the com­pact SUV mar­ket, with a big boot and de­cent rear seat space. It’s not the most thrilling car to drive, but the en­gine range is com­pe­tent, and all mod­els are solidly put to­gether and gen­er­ously equipped as stan­dard.

As with most ri­vals, 4WD is only of­fered on the more pow­er­ful 2.0 CRDI diesels and with an au­to­matic box, but that does mean hill des­cent con­trol is in­cluded.

Price range: £19,855-£33,600 Our pick: 2.0 CRDI 136PS 4WD auto SE Nav (£28,545) En­gine: 2.0-litre 4cyl diesel, 134bhp Trans­mis­sion: 6-spd auto, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 114mph Econ­omy: 47.1mpg CO2: 156g/km
