2020 Hyundai Tucson 1.6 Turbo
Reason why I bought this car
Intending to purchase 2 new cars: SUV for me to upgrade from the Sedan segment(Altis 2005) and hatchback sedan for my wife's old car(Nissan Sunny 1991). The first choice is Mazda CX-5 2.0 GLS but out of budget due to 2 new vehicles in one go. We tested C-HR & Proton X70 and hesitantly tried Tucson.
Car selection process
- I had a budget: Around RM 200K for 2 new cars
- Model that I have considered include: Mazda CX-5, CR-V, C-HR, X70
The reason why I choose this car
- The interior look is so continental, and it tastes two tone soft touch at the dashboard.
- The torque is 265N·m, started kicking in at 1500 rpm which did not happen to my available choice in C-HR and X70, CX-5 was already out of my budget.
- I have already done 14000 km.
- NVH is good even using goodyear tyre(stock tyre).
- As a comfort mode, there is a surge after the second gear fuel consumption.
- It can reach 6.6L/100km crusing on normal highway.
Total Score: 5

Ride Comfort: 5
Fuel Economy: 5

Pros & Cons
- Continental interior look
- Penta healight with LED
- Turbo start kicks in at 1500rpm
- Good NVH
- It has power tailgate with sensor of proximity distance.
- Some jerking at the first and second gear due to it is a DCT gear transmission.
- No BSM & Pre-collision warning or RCTA.
As an anti kroean car enthusiast, finally my favorite SUV is Hyundai Tucson 1.6T which has brought me to my beyond imagination of not having Mazda CX-5 or X70.
Love to have my stand alone SUV whenever I’m on the road as many same SUVs are on the road, such as CX-5, X70,X50 etc.
The Tucson is my“Retirement SUV.”
