As much as I enjoy driving the Tucson every day, unfortunately, I didn't have enough time to drive the car this month because of a super tight schedule. Long road trips and work travels meant that I drove the Tucson for less than a 1,000kms this month, which is rather unusual. In fact, I’ve spent more time sitting in the back of a cab than driving a car.
However, those long hours of sitting in the back of a cab made me realise that not only does the Tucson have class-leading refinement in terms of NVH levels but also a fantastically well setup suspension that's ideal for our road conditions.
Sure, if you really want to nit-pick, you could say that it's tuned on the softer side, but for everyday use, that's simply perfect. And, it has once again reaffirmed my belief that, for me at least, driving a car is the best way to spend time in an automobile. I've never been a very good passenger in a car, and with worsening driving standards in our country, I'm far happier being in the driving seat myself. As for the Tucson, between its refinement, powerful engine and a slick-shifting gearbox, its breadth of abilities are matched by very few cars on our market.
