The Plug-in Hybrid version of this Tucson comes in all the usual Tucson trim options, bar entry-level 'SE Connect'. That means prices starting at just over £39,000 for either the 'Premium'-spec model or the alternative sportier-looking 'N Line' variant. That's a figure which represents a premium of just under £5,000 over the alternative full-Hybrid HEV variant - and almost £7,000 over the MHEV mild hybrid model. So you've really got to want plug-in tech, especially if you're to stretch to one of the plusher trim levels - there's a choice of 'N Line S' or a top 'Ultimate' trim level that could set you back as much as around £42,000.
Still, across the range, you do at least get plenty of kit for your outlay. The twin 10.25-inch interior screens are one example of that, the central infotainment monitor not only including 'Android Auto' and 'Apple CarPlay' connectivity but also Google and Apple calendar integration, along with selectable user profiles.
And of course there are up-to-the-minute driver assistance safety features, including the company's latest 'Highway Drive Assist' semi-autonomous capability. This can brake and accelerate the Tucson to keep it a pre-set distance from other motorists, using a 'Lane Follow Assist' system to keep the car in lane on major roads. At the top of the range, there's even a 'Remote Smart Parking Assist' feature, allowing the car to be summoned from a parking spot via a button on the key.
