Hyundai Tucson review - Reliability and safety

With impressive safety kit and five years of warranty cover, the Hyundai Tucson is a great family choice

Hyundai has good experience with electrified powertrains and we’d expect the Tucson to prove a reliable family SUV. The previous-generation model finished in 64th position out of 75 cars in our 2021 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, although Hyundai was represented in the top ten with the Ioniq five-door hatch securing ninth spot. Hyundai itself will want to improve on 13th place, out of 30 manufacturers, in the best brands poll.

Standard safety kit is good, although to benefit from the full suite of active systems you’ll need to upgrade to Premium or Ultimate trim. Both of these include a Blind Spot Collision Warning, Forward Collision Avoidance Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance which helps avoid any potential hazards as you reverse out of a driveway or parking spot.

EuroNCAP awarded the fourth-generation Tucson a full five-star rating when it crash tested the car, although protection of the driver's chest was assessed as being only marginal.

Servicing

Service intervals for the Tucson are annually or every 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. Hyundai also offers tailored servicing plans, with flexible payment options available to make it easier to manage the cost of scheduled maintenance.

Warranty

Hyundai offers a reassuring five-year, unlimited mileage warranty for all of its cars. Also included is 12 months roadside assistance and free annual health checks (visual inspections) of your vehicle.
