Hyundai Tucson 2021

The 2021 Hyundai Tucson range of configurations is currently priced from $36,990. Our most recent review of the 2021 Hyundai Tucson resulted in a score of 7.6 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Family reviewer Nedahl Stelio had this to say at the time: I really like the exterior design of this new Tucson, and the inside was stylish too. There was plenty of interior space and boot space for my family of four and the tech worked well for me, plus it has good safety. I did think it could do with a bit more power to speed up hills and so I could feel confident about overtaking, and I also would love to see a hybrid or electric variant on offer in the range.

Hyundai Tucson 2021 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai Tucson 2021 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Hyundai Tucson diesel problems

    The Hyundai brand has developed an enviable reputation in this country for reliability and quality. The brand’s warranty is also excellent, taking away even more buyer anxiety. With that in mind, the decision to go diesel or petrol comes down to the way you use the vehicle.

    This applies to all brands, not just Hyundai, but if all (or most of) your driving will be urban or suburban based, then the petrol engine is for you. Yes, you’ll use a little more fuel than the diesel variant, but servicing costs could be a little lower and you’ll avoid the modern turbo-diesel’s biggest downfall; a blocked Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).

    The DPF is an emissions device that traps the soot from the diesel engine and burns it off at a later date. The problem with that is that the DPF can only burn off the soot and regenerate itself if the engine (and exhaust system) gets to a temperature high enough for this to happen. In urban running, that doesn’t just doesn’t happen, at which point the on-board computer will either try to force a regeneration (not always successful) or the DPF will have to be manually cleaned or even replaced (and that’s costly).

    The bottom line, then, is that a turbo-diesel (even a modern one) is only for you if you will be driving the car at highway speeds for at least half an hour at least once a month (once a fortnight is better). If that’s how you use a car, then the diesel should be okay; if not, it’s petrol every time.

Hyundai Tucson 2021 Interior

The interior has taken a huge step up from the last model, with a very different design. It looks at odds with the sharp-lined exterior design, being swoopy and curvy.

The model range determines the size of media screen you get, and also whether you get digital instruments or not. And in the Highlander grade, you've got the choice between three different interior trim colours - black, grey or brown.

Hyundai Tucson 2021 Accessories

The big ticket item for customers is expected to be the new N Line Pack, which adds a number of items depending on the grade you choose.

In the base model Tucson, the N Line Pack costs $3500, while in the Elite trim it's $2000 extra and for Highlander buyers the premium is $1000. 

Why the difference? It's based on what you already get standard across the regular grades, but, all told, the upgrade sees the inclusion of: 19-inch alloy wheels, leather and suede seats, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, LED front and rear lights including auto high beam lighting, gloss black grille, N Line skid plate design, N Line badging and the N Line sports body kit.

Hyundai Tucson 2021 Boot Space

Boot space is 539 litres (VDA) for the Tucson with both rows of seats in place, and amazingly, there's a full-size spare wheel under the floor. Fold the seats down and you score 1860L (VDA) of cargo capacity.
