HYUNDAI TUCSON HIGHLANDER R-SERIES

Hyundai acted quickly and made changes to the structure which enabled a five-star result when re-tested. This is good news, because there’s a lot to like about Tucson. It’s a little more expensive than some might expect (although this Highlander model is loaded with gear) but it has a fabulously flexible and commodious interior that is also comfortable and well made. And dynamically, it’s one of the best of this type of SUV around, boasting a great combination of handling and ride.
