In this category i will talk more about the car ride comfort and which convenience items it has to offer, so it's not about #europcar
here, it's all about the #hyundai
the impression i first had when looking at this car from the outside and even just after taking the front seat was: this is really a big suv! i've rented kia sportages more than once before and i was expecting the hyundai to be the same size, but the tucson really looked more spacious.
however, the good first impression came to nothing as soon as i started paying more attention to the details. the lack of soft touch materials on the doors and just a tiny bit of it between the bluetooth radio and the passenger's air conditioning vent shows that this is a cheap suv. don't get me wrong, the quality of the hard plastics were not bad and i couldn't hear any squeaks, but it's still lhard plastic.
this base version has no leather seats, the parking break is still the old manual lever, no lights on vanity mirrors (even on passenger side) and the lack of a touch screen all add to that "cheap" impression of the car. afaik, all of its competitors have at least 3 of these items at the moment (sportage, qashqai, gla, 3008, etc.). also it's worth mentioning the lack of traction control and any other kind of electronic assist, apart from the mandatory abs brakes.
however, the ride comfort is really good as the seats are very soft and the suspension is clearly focused on smoothness. this decreases the drivability a bit though, specially when cornering on wet weather (as was the case this whole weekend), as the car tends to roll and to oversteer more than what i could perceive on similar models that have a more balanced suspension, like the sportage. oh, one last thing: the boot is huge! .
