The 2017 Hyundai Tucsonbuilds upon former models with gradual improvements across the board. Featuring a 5-inch colour touchscreen display with sophisticated but easy-to-use audio interface, the 2017 Tucson also features a rear-view camera among other useful extras.

However, the all-wheel drive variant is really where the Tucson comes into its own.Although adding all-wheel drive will stack on about $2,000 to any trim level, it is important to describe why this is good value, especially if you’re constantly up against tough climates and/or terrain.

As the cabin filled with water and our lunch floated past we climbed over the seats and out through the back door. Not my finest four wheel driving moment. The wisdom of a 5 year old boy and the enthusiasm of a father trying to impress his son ended in a mess. We used phones and Facebook to contact friends and people to come assist with the recovery.

My son and I enjoyed the time waiting by throwing rocks at targets, listening to sounds of the birds and playing noughts and crosses in the dirt. There is nothing better than showing our children the joys there is to the great scenery and bush land Australia has to offer.

I’m the kind of bloke that likes to take learnings away from every occasion. The biggest takeaway initially was making sure we don’t travel alone. Having mates around to assist in sticky situations is paramount. Our four hour ordeal could have been easily solved by a simple snatch to pop us back out the way we went in.

The all-wheel drive variant features a driver-selectable lock that is able to dynamically select varying power inputs to each wheel,which gives you an unparallelled level of control in difficult conditions. Such a control mechanism is especially useful in mountainous or snowy terrain. However, it should be made clear that the all-wheel variant is more than just a frivolous extra for a niche market. Indeed, the all-wheel drive variant is versatile and dependable, and it will have drivers in all weather conditions appreciate its torque vectoring, which intelligently brakes one of the inside wheels to tackledifficult corners.

Additionally, like the two-wheel variant, the 2017 Tucson has stain- and odour-resistant cloth, making the 2017 Tucson an ideal choice for pets and families. With arear privacy glass and front solar glass, your daily commute will be just as breezy as any other car.

If your budget permits, the all-wheel drive option is a wonderful add-on for anyone who dares to venture outside city limits. Being able to effortlessly haul yourself out of mud can end up saving you a lot of money and embarrassment.

  • Available in 6-speed or 7-speed

  • The option for emergency braking and navigation system is a costly extra
  • The cargo space is still a little on the small side, especially considering the chassis’ size
