The 2020 Hyundai Tucson ranked #9 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Tucson has a score of 7.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Relaxed ride
Good predicted reliability rating
Solid list of standard technology
Long warranty

Cons
Uninspiring engine options
Lower fuel economy estimates than rivals
Below-average cargo space

By:

The 2019 received a wide range of updates, so the 2020 Tucson's changes are modest. Hyundai revamped the available colors for the exterior; a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob are standard on Sport trim levels and above.

Pros
Handsome exterior, straightforward dashboard design, agreeable driving demeanor.

Cons
Less cargo space than key rivals, mediocre fuel economy, powertrain warranty doesn't transfer to second owner.

The MG HS is a significant step forward for the brand in Australia, and it isn't just about the sharp pricing. It is a compelling competitor in the medium-SUV segment.

Pros
General feeling of quality, fit and finish is excellent
Cabin insulation and execution are well done
Value is unquestioned, including the warranty

Cons
1.5-litre engine is a little small for the medium-SUV segment
There is a slight torque hole off the mark that you do notice
Transmission is occasionally caught in the wrong gear when cruising

Not only does the MG HS offer excellent value for money, it also has a classy interior and punchy performance if you’re prepared to work the engine for it. Although its infotainment system is laggy and its engine rather coarse when pushed, it’s well worth considering.

Pros
Cheap yet well equipped
Plush interior
Good ride and handling balance

Cons
Small boot
Coarse engine
Pricey PCP deals

The MG HS is a practical family car that comes with a decent amount of standard equipment, but alternatives have more powerful engines that are cheaper to run.
The MG HS is the brand’s largest SUV and an alternative to the likes of the Nissan Qashqai and Skoda Karoq. MG might not quite have the same brand kudos as these cars, but it makes a pretty good first impression.
At least you get cruise control and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection as standard, though, but you’ll have to fork out for a top-spec car if you want a reversing camera, LED headlights and a panoramic glass roof.
