In the Tucson, the hybrid system consists of a 1.6-liter petrol engine with 180 hp, an electric motor with 60 hp, a battery with 1.49 kWh and a six-speed automatic transmission, the system output is 230 hp.
Works smoothly, but reacts a bit sluggishly, the petrol engine runs rough and is very present under load. Compared to the Ioniq, the Tucson doesn’t drive quite as alert and lively, rather well-behaved and, shall we say, unexcited.
The hybrid version with 230 hp and all-wheel drive is listed from 42,440 euros, the Ioniq 5 with 217 hp and rear-wheel drive was available from 45,900. There was, because the variant is no longer in the range, now it is 229 hp and a 77.4 kWh battery – only slightly more expensive, but too late for our test.
The guarantees are sensational: five years for the Tucson, even eight for the Ioniq. In the end, it also has the edge in terms of mileage: 46 cents are 18 less than the Tucson.
