2021 Hyundai Tucson – Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) – POV Quick Test Drive Review

We took a quick drive in Ireland’s best selling new car, the Hyundai Tucson.

Welcome to behind the wheel of the all-new 2021 hyundai tucson plug-in hybrid we’re driving the new tucson at fitzpatrick’s hyundai kildare town now you don’t need me to tell you what a success the tucson has been over the years for hyundai and still very much is chances are you see multiple two suns every day out on the road there’s many reasons for this it’s a

Solid car that’s built well hyundai offers a five-year unlimited mileage warranty it’s comfortable and spacious and now this new generation looks different to pretty much all of its rivals hyundai took a bold step by radically redesigning their popular crossover but it seems to have paid off let’s get into the video and take a quick drive in the new plug-in hybrid

Tucson if you can help support the channel by hitting that subscribe button we’d really appreciate it and let us know in the comments below what maker model you want to see next on the channel so this tucson is powered by both a petrol engine and electric motor irish pricing for the plug-in tucson starts at 41 695 euro and rises to 47.5 for the top spec the

One we’re in today is the entry level comfort plus and to be fair it still has a decent amount of kit so the engine is a turbocharged 1.6 petrol that works together with the electric motor to put out a combined 261 brake horsepower with a 0 to 100 kilometers time quoted at eight and a half seconds from our research most reviews state that to drive there isn’t

Much difference between the plug-in hybrid tucson and the regular hybrid from what we can see from behind the wheel it’s got plenty of poke and is settled and comfortable out on the road there’s also decent torque from the hybrid system making overtaking and getting up to speed a pretty easy task one thing we did note is that the suspension is set up slightly

Firmer than you may expect for a crossover but it still irons out bumps fairly well and isn’t too firm in the corners you can slightly feel that extra bit of weight that those bigger batteries bring in the form of some body roll but the handling is more than competent for a family crossover it’s not like you’re going to be throwing an suv into the corners at

Massive speeds anyway premium feeling is the first word that comes to mind when you’re behind the wheel of the tucson and you could easily cover that badge and ask someone to guess what car they’re in chances are they will say one of the premium brands quality in here really is second to none and once again hyundai have matched the germans and this interior

Would put more expensive cars to shame the digital driver’s display is clear and crisp with plenty of customizable options the center infotainment system is simple enough to use there are haptic feedback buttons which do the job this is much easier to use than some rivals which have heating and air con built into the touchscreen the car really feels bang up to

Date in here excuse the white plastic that’s still under dash this car is brand new the gear selector is logically laid out and the steering wheel has all your shortcut buttons for media lane keeping assist and cruise control when it comes to space the plug-in hybrid is practically identical to the regular tucson there is slightly less boot space due to the

Bigger batteries the big benefit to plug-in hybrids is that if used correctly they are cheap to run and this tucson should prove no different naturally enough if you don’t keep the batteries topped up regularly then inevitably you will use more fuel but keep the batteries charged and this suv should have very low running costs a main rival of the tucson is the

Ford cougar plug-in hybrid while the cougar plug-in does undercut the tucson in price i think overall the hyundai is that little bit more interesting to look at and has more equipment as standard overall the tucson is a very strong car and it’s pretty evident why it’s such a strong seller even in this crowded segment if you’re in the market for a compact plug-in

Hybrid suv it’s definitely worth adding to tucson to your list what do you think of the new tucson let us know in the comments below subscribe if you haven’t already and until the next one thanks very much for watching deck of cars
