How to choose the ideal Hyundai SUV

So, you’ve decided on Hyundai – great choice! The Hyundai SUV range is growing and it can be hard to choose the right SUV for your needs. Here at Cars2, we have put together this quick, simple guide to help you buy the perfect Hyundai SUV for you.

Step 1: Determine your needs

The Hyundai SUV range has purposefully been designed to cater for the needs of many. While there are multiple SUVs in the Hyundai range which are capable of helping with an array of lifestyles, choosing the right SUV is made easier by understanding your own needs.

Start by writing down a list, or making note in your head of how you will use your Hyundai SUV on a day-to-day basis. Here are some key considerations:

  • How many passengers will you need to accommodate? Will you need 5 seats or a 7 seat Hyundai?
  • How much cargo space do you use? Hyundai boot capacities vary so it is important to choose the right one!
  • What type of terrain will you be driving on? Are your local area roads plain sailing, or do you need a more rugged, off-road Hyundai SUV?
  • What type of journeys do you take? Are you planning on using your Hyundai SUV for commuting daily, long distance road trips, or off road adventures? This will also help you decide if you want to make the change to a hybrid or fully electric Hyundai SUV.

Step 2: Compare the Hyundai SUV Range

Each model in the Hyundai SUV range is available in different specifications, or “trim levels”. So remember to research which level has the features that you require. The Hyundai SUV range consists of 3 main models; Hyundai KONA (Available as KONA, KONA Electric & Kona Hybrid), Hyundai TUCSON (Available as TUCSON, TUCSON Mild Hybrid, TUCSON Hybrid & TUCSON Plug-in Hybrid), and Hyundai SANTA FE (Available as SANTA FE Hybrid & SANTA FE Plug-in Hybrid)

Below we have set out the key features for each of the 3 models, based on their top specs.

Step 3: Consider your budget

It is important to understand your budget when it comes to purchasing a car from the Hyundai SUV range. Although Hyundai offers exceptional value for money across the SUV range, there is no point considering models that are not in your budget. Will you be looking to buy your Hyundai SUV with cash, or will you be a Hyundai Finance customer?

Step 4: Test drive your Hyundai SUV

Once you have narrowed down your search, it is time to book a test drive. You should never buy a car before test driving it first as you want to make sure that it has all the attributes that you require, and most importantly, that its comfy!
