Hyundai Tucson Named Best Car for Long Distances Award 2018

Long distance driving can be a bit uncomfortable at the best of times, sitting in the same spot for hours you need to be as relaxed as possible. Thats why the Uk's biggest car website Autotrader set out to find the best car for long distance in the AutoTrader New Car awards 2018. 

The category was decided by feedback collated from a survey of more than 40,000 car owners, all of whom rated their car in 16 key areas. And this years winner was non other than the Hyundai Tucson. 

High-mileage owners were particularly impressed with the Tucson’s reliability and durability, giving the car top marks in both areas. It also came out top among regular motorway drivers for the cost of servicing and repairs, and it came second for comfort.

Here are just a few of the comments that owners made about the Tuscon…

“For such a big car the economy is very good, even with urban driving.”
“I like sitting high up and it is a very comfortable car.”
“Cost of running it and how it looks, and also all the safety features and very long warranty.”
“The car looks fantastic in Aura Blue. The amount of space in the car is also very liberating.”

Commenting on the Tucson’s victory in this category, Auto Trader’s Road Test Editor, Ivan Aistrop, said: “The Tucson turned out to be the firm favourite with the high-mileage owners in our survey, and that should be no surprise to anyone. The big Hyundai feels comfortable, stable and settled at motorway cruising speeds, and things also stay pretty quiet on a long motorway schlep. The generous luxury equipment also helps keep you comfortable, connected and entertained, and with good space and practicality, the same should go for those in the back.”
