The Hyundai Tucson is a small crossover SUV and 4x4 that allows you to explore everything that Iceland has to offer, from the most popular attractions to the less-accessible hidden gems. This car takes you to natural wonders, beautiful cities and towns, but also into the Icelandic Highlands and remote parts of the country that are not accessible with a 2WD vehicle.
The Tucson is versatile and compact and is known for its great performance, smooth ride and safety. It comes with a six-speed automatic transmission, is fuel-efficient and very easy to drive in all types of terrains and weather conditions. It combines the comfort and style of a sedan but with the space and features of a 4WD vehicle.
The Hyundai Tucson seats 5 people comfortably and even sleeps up to two people in the back with the rear seats folded down. The front seats have good padded support, and the back ones can be reclined and have a lot of space for the legs, which makes this car very comfortable on longer routes.
The Tucson can carry a maximum of 3 large bags or 4 smaller ones. The trunk has a capacity of 878 liters, which can double to 1756 liters with the rear seats down, plus the hidden underfloor storage in the boot space.
The Tucson offers a raised clearance and great suspension even on bumpy roads. This is very convenient given the characteristics of the Icelandic terrain in the Highlands’ F-Roads, where small rivers and rocks are common. This car is also well-known for its quiet cabin, which makes driving around Iceland an absolute pleasure.
This automatic 4x4 car also comes equipped with many comfort and safety features such as Bluetooth, USB/AUX connection, radio, a six-speaker sound system with CD player, 17-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, cruise control, heated mirrors, a height-adjustable driver seat, 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks with recline, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, 5-inch touchscreen display and rear-view camera.
The Hyundai Tucson is suitable for all F-Roads (excl. F249 to Thorsmork). Nevertheless, keep in mind that off-road driving is illegal in Iceland and is penalized with hefty fines.
