    Nice addition, just a shame the proper Hybrid isn’t available, just the 48V version

    Two problems for me, with new Tucson. Seen a suggestion that the steering is heavy, and secondly, the one with all the extras is not on the scheme, the Ultimate.

    The ultimate is on, but only in manual and a standard thirsty petrol engine

    They’re on the main Motability search, cars with pic are the old model, no pic is new one

    When I seen “Tucson (New Car) +7” I thought fantastic a new seven seater on the market, then the penny dropped and I seen it’s just another small sized SUV, 8 in variety, to go long with the hundred already out there.

    Lack of decent priced auto puts this off my list anyway before even considering boot-space.

    Just posted the following on another thread, but have just noticed that this is a specific thread on the new Tucson;

    Good to see the new Tucson added but the AP’s are very high for what is, when all is said and done, a car from a budget manufacturer. As others have said, the additional premium for an auto is unfortunate given that many disabled drivers will have no choice in that regard. For me to consider this car I would want an Ultimate Auto, which doesn’t seem to be available. People often criticise the premium brands for the number of optional extras that they have available, but the thing that bugs me with brands like Hyundai, Toyota and Honda is that the only way of getting certain kit that you want is to move up through the model range which, with Motability, isn’t always an option.

    Chris k my thoughts exactly.

    Ideally I need SUV for the better seating/driving position but also need big boot for sport and daily wheelchairs but because if the high AP for SUVs I’m having to look at estates and there’s a lack of them aswell

    I was considering the New Tucson but need an auto and they are far too expensive on the AP.

    It will have to be the Tiguan Elegance 1.5 petrol DSG at a more reasonable £1975 pretty fully loaded.

    The colours are pants though, took a look round my local dealers forecourt the other day and nightshade blue in the flesh it too dark. The moonlight grey (not metalic) looked ok. Trying to see what a Ginger Brown metalic looks like in the flesh.

    The Tiguan Elegance is still ticking the most boxes on our shortlist, which is a shame as I fancied a change, but I agree about the very poor choice of colours. I was excited when I saw Nightshade Blue in the brochures, but it is absolutely nothing like it in the flesh, as you have discovered. In the brochures it looks like a vibrant bright metallic blue yet in reality it’s a very dark petrol blue. Might end up getting a silver one for a change (have had two grey ones, a black one and a white R-Line) but will extend the lease on our 190PS 4WD SEL Auto in the hope that the 2.0 TSi 4WD joins the scheme when eventually released, or something better comes on to the scheme. I appreciate that neither is a certainty the way that the scheme is going.

    A strange offering from Hyundai for the new Tucson.Its a lovely looking ,big roomy car and ideal for Motability Customers but they have seemed to thrown a few “bread crumbs” on the floor hoping  that will be sufficient to please us.Lacking Autos across the range and hybrid inclusion.However, it can only be anticipated that the full range will be available in due course…..maybe.

    I don’t think the full hybrid is available anywhere yet, and the 48v cars are mild hybrids, lower CO2 but not much else except better low end torque, more akin to a diesel.

    The auto DCT gearbox is only available on the 48Volt cars and is a £2k increase over the manual standard petrol engine.

    Hopefully, the full Hybrid will come on the scheme when it’s actually available to buy, as will the AWD that also hasn’t been released

    One thing for sure is that my little town here in Bangor, Co Down will be flooded with these cars as we have a main Hyundai dealer in the town centre and all his stuff sells like hot cakes, especially Tucsons.

    Beautiful SUV but the AP’s are just ridiculous tbh – money is always tight but I manage to save £10 a month towards next AP – so £360 plus £500 from the GCB gives me my AP limit

    GCB is now £600 so your better off than you thought.

    It’s a beautiful suv and nice to see a bit of flair amongst a sea of bland SUV’s – but the AP’s are well out of my means – it’ll be interesting to see how many of them are leased through the scheme

    Can one find out about figures for specific models?

    Menorca Mike – ref. my MG auto – it has been a pain with the auto box playing up – too hesitant at junctions / roundabouts & mid range driving , indecisive and irratic – I don’t feel safe driving it now & despite two wasted trips back to my nominated dealership – no change – I’m looking to see what my options are now.  Plus no faith in with MG U.K. nor dealership – lack of information, clarity and accountability.  It’s unfortunate as it’s so comfy and keeps my pain levels at minimum to mild & has more tech than any other car at the AP but the issues with the auto box has ruined my experience

    I’ve watched the review and it wasn’t as good a review as i was expecting from Matt Watson.

    I was possibly interested in the new Tucson as an alternative to the new Tiguan but watching that carwow review has put me off. The new Tiguan is a cheaper option (lower AP) and has more desirable standard goodies if going for the Tiguan Elegance Option. It’s also has a bigger rear room and boot.
