It is the best-selling car in Spain and its access version has a big but


What is the best-selling car in Spain so far this year? Traditionally they had been cars like the SEAT Ibiza, the SEAT León or the SEAT Arona – which rose as the best-selling car in the country in 2021. However, it is striking that in 2022 the throne has passed to a much-priced compact SUV. highest: the Hyundai Tucson. Fewer cars are sold in Spain, but more expensive cars are sold at a higher price. And we have to talk about the access version of the best-selling car in Spain… and its big but.

At this time it is possible buy a Hyundai Tucson in Spain by a price that starts at 26,125 euros. It is a price higher than that of compact SUVs before the inflationary spiral we are experiencing, but it is still a reasonable price and it has not skyrocketed excessively. Corresponds to a Klass finish version. This finish does not include digital instrumentation or leather seats, but it does include a rear parking camera, climate control, 17″ wheels or an 8″ screen for the infotainment system.

The range of Hyundai Tucson engines is very extensive: it includes pure combustion, micro-hybrids, full hybrids and plug-in hybrids.

Your system is compatible with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The car’s safety features include lane keeping assistant and automatic braking with pedestrian and cyclist recognition. Amenities like cruise control are also included. In short, it has everything you need to make everyday life very pleasant And let’s not miss anything important.

What is the but of the cheapest Hyundai Tucson?

The access version mounts a 150 hp 1.6 T-GDi engine, a four-cylinder turbo petrol, associated with a six-speed manual gearbox. And this is where we come to the big but of this version of access: it is one of the two engines of the extensive range of the Tucson that lack hybridization or electrification, along with the 115 hp 1.6 CRDi diesel. The turbo petrol engine is also sold with a micro-hybrid system, and thanks to this, it manages to have a valuable ECO label from the DGT – without problems to access any of the future ZBE in the country.

The 1.6 T-GDi engine has the necessary power for any circumstance, with relatively contained consumption.

The but, or the trick, is that the micro-hybrid version is not available with the Access Klass finish. It is only available in the Maxx finish and above, with a price difference of no less than 4,000 euros with respect to the engine and access finish. This difference will be an insurmountable hurdle for many pockets, and although there is more equipment, it is basically the toll to pay for the Tucson ECO label. Returning to the access version at hand, to achieve a price of 26,125 euros, a series of requirements must be met.
