I turn the big SUV over the sports of its two køreindstillinger, and suddenly appears the automatic gearbox, more aggressive and embattled.
20 miles later I am choosing to go back into the normal setting in the great Hyundai Tucson, which constitute testbilen.
Why I am returning to.
the Tucson is hyundai's attempt at a family-friendly SUV for a starting price of just over dkk 250,000. Now, testbilen, as I find myself in, costs more. There are several reasons for this.
First and foremost, is it a newer mildhybrid version, which came on the market in mid-2019.
Moreover, this testbil upgraded to the so-called N-Line-equipment level.
Model Tucson has some years old, and it is expected that a replacement is presented in the course of 2020.
the Koreans have, however, chosen to give the SUV a a last makeover by, among other things, to introduce the mild-hybrid, where a 48-volt motor engages with a diesel engine on either 136 hp or 185 hp.
Testbilen is the small version with the 1.6-liter engine, so here is the 136 hp to do well with.
The more powerful engine is a 2.0 liter.

appearing mild-hybrid technique smoothly. 48-volt generator has the function of starter motor and can help with the 16 extra hp during acceleration. By slowing down puts the engine out automatically at 30 km/h. Measurements show, according to Hyundai, to hybridmotoren reduces the Tuscons fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to seven percent.
Dobbeltkoblingsgearkassen is excellent, as the automatic transmission shifts smoothly and without drawing attention to itself. At times one can, however, get to miss more weight from the engine, for missing powerful.
Therefore, you might consider trying the larger 185-hp version, before you sign on the slutsedlen. The price premium is about 70,000 dollars, but you also get more power and all-wheel drive included in the deal.

hyundai's sporty versions of their cars, so this SUV is adorned with all sorts of sporty details, and Hyundai in particular has given the gas with blanksorte details in the interior to a point where it borders on the excessive. Generally the cabin is characterized by very dark colors, and you may well miss a little 'life' in here.
however, you can not complain about the amount of standard equipment, which includes LED headlights, automatic emergency brake with fodgængergenkendelse, Apple CarPlay, rear view camera and 8 inch touchscreen.
In testbilen is also an excellent adaptive cruise control, which is to make Tucson a very reasonable komfortbil, which is ideal for long trips or as pendlerbil. Unfortunately it is optional to 10,000 crowns.
Just Tucson's abilities as komfortbil looking to a general sense of wonder that occurs when you run the N Line version. For it really makes sense to try to shape a big, heavy SUV in a sportier direction? Tucson running as a starting point, not especially arousing, and as I touched on at the start of the test, is the 'Sport'setting is not a place to stay too long.
To get a fast impression of the car and not at least the gearbox here, does violence to itself.

the best way to describe how Tucson is running, and it does it well. The underbody is, thankfully, not been lowered, and despite the rims on 19 inch is it soft enough to swallow vejhuller without getting too flaccid.
Therefore, it can be worthwhile to consider carefully whether you need to select the Tucson in N-Line. It puts itself between the two chairs, and you may be better served to choose a plain Tucson in the mild-hybrid with less equipment, but with the great saving.
the Same motor and gearbox can be obtained in a Trend edition for 340.000 euros.
You can also consider to wait for the new model.
Tucson N Line do very many things well. It appears the fed is out, run comfortably and have reasonable equipment, but the sporting profile does not fit especially well to the family-friendly SUV. In turn, the site is good, and the price for a less equipped version is sharp.
