Hyundai Tucson Australia

If ever there were a tale of two cars from different sides of the track, the Hyundai Tucson is it.

Unimpressive as a frumpy, underwhelming SUV that launched in 2004 before being retired in 2009 in favour of the ix35, it burst back into the Australian market in 2015 as a handsome mid-size sports utility that has stormed up the sales charts. Sold in Australia from $29,640 to $49,735 for versions that include petrol and diesel engines and front- and all-wheel drivetrains, the Tucson mid-size SUV - whether in base Tucson Active (2WD) trim or high-class Tucson Active X (awd) Beige INT spec - has garnered rave reviews from the CarsGuide team for its practicality and on-road performance.

Hyundai Tucson Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai Tucson here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What trim level is my 2019 Hyundai Tucson?

    While the vehicle’s VIN will identify the make and model, it won’t necessarily spell out the trim level. That information is usually incorporated on to a build plate attached to the firewall or inner fender.

    From June 2019, Hyundai changed the name of its entry-level `Go’ model to `Active’ so effectively, you’ve bought the base-model car anyway. If you have been sold anything other than an Active model, you’ve received a higher specification model, so I wouldn’t be complaining back at the dealership.

  • Hyundai Tucson 2015: Problems with multimedia screen

    This has cropped up before in relatively new Hyundais and seems to be a software – rather than a hardware – problem. The solution is to take the car to a Hyundai dealer who will be able to reload the unit’s software and all should be well.

    I’ve also heard of the odd case where the entire head unit was replaced by Hyundai, but reloading the software (which should take only a few minutes) seems to be the most common fix.

  • Hyundai Tucson 2006: Engine stopping

    This is another of those "get the vehicle scanned" situations. There are about a thousand things that can cause an engine to stop in its tracks the way you’ve described, and only by scanning the computer to see what fault codes have been logged can you even begin to make a diagnosis. You cold be looking at anything from a crank-angle sensor, to a blocked fuel-tank breather, or a faulty throttle-position sensor to damaged coil-pack. Or anything in between. Modern engines are complicated beasts and the days of checking for spark, fuel and compression as a simple roadside diagnosis are long gone.

    By the way, you haven’t told me whether you have the four-cylinder or V6 versions of the Tuscon. Without that information, I’m flying even blinder.

  • Hyundai Tucson 2015: Why am I having so many issues?

    As the car is still under warranty you should certainly contact the dealer and express your dissatisfaction and ask them what they are going to do to fix your car. If that doesn’t get a positive response then contact head office.
