The latest-generation Hyundai Tucson is a significant departure from the previous model and customer deliveries have kicked off in select markets. So, what is it like to live with?

This clip by YouTuber Asian Petrolhead shows the reviewer driving a new Tucson with its owner in the passenger seat. The two talk in-depth about what it is like to live with. Unsurprisingly, it seems as though Hyundai has ticked all the major boxers it needed to when creating the new SUV.

While the radical exterior styling is the first aspect of the new Tucson that catches the eye, the interior has undergone just as many alterations. One of the most significant changes made is the fitment of an all-digital instrument cluster. The interesting thing about this cluster is that it doesn’t feature a shroud like pretty much every other car on the market and just has a widescreen display mounted to the dash. It looks very interesting and despite concerns that the lack of a shroud could result in quite a lot of glare, the owner confirms that’s not the case.

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson heading to the United States will be offered with a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter Smartstream engine producing 187 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque. A hybrid variant with a 177 hp 1.6-liter turbocharged engine and an electric motor delivering 59 hp is also available, as is a plug-in hybrid, although specifications about this powertrain haven’t been made public yet.

 


Boat people like to say that there are two good days of boat ownership. The day you buy it and the day you sell it. The owner of this shark-nosed 1985 BMW 635 CSi apparently took that advice to heart, storing it for almost the entirety of their time with it.

This car, now for sale in Germany, was purchased on November 20, 1984, it was delivered on January 21, 1985, registered on January 28, 1985, and then put into storage on January 29, 1985. And now it’s for sale with AutoScout24.

As a result, the car has just 428 km (265 miles) on the odometer and 2.1 km (1.3 miles) on the trip counter. The owner is now apparently tired of storing it and is looking for € 125,000 (about $150,000), though the price is negotiable. The poster does ask, though, that you “refrain from stupid sayings and form sick commentaries.”

Unsurprisingly, that means that this 635 CSi is accident-free. It also features power windows, an on-board computer, alloy wheels, power steering, and ABS. Not bad for a car from 1985.

This car features a 5-speed manual transmission and a 3.4L inline 6 making 215 hp and 225 lb-ft of torque. All of which meant that, in era, journalists called the 635 CSi “a return to the enjoyable, sporting high performance BMWs of old.”

Hemmings, meanwhile, in its buyers guide for the car today says the car “in the right hands […] represents a high-water mark for BMW.”

The only problem, they report, is that so many have been in the wrong hands. What, therefore, could be better, than a car that has been in almost no hands? Although mothballed for the last 35 years, the seller reports that this 635 CSi is “absolutely without any problems.”

We can’t help but hope that’s true.

Audi’s electric onslaught is hitting top gear with 12 all-electric models coming on stream by 2025. Two are scheduled for an imminent reveal, one being the ballistic e-tron GT sedan, and the other a family-friendly compact SUV called the Q4 e-tron. Back in March, we showed you the GT, so let’s take a look at the electrified Q4.

If you thought our illustrated preview looks familiar, you’d be correct; the production Q4 is almost identical to the concept car that debuted at the 2019 Geneva motor show. So which aspects have changed and what else can we expect?

Sharp appearances

Whilst the overall design has primarily been revealed in conceptual form, there are subtle differences which mark its production intent. Regular door handles are now evident, as are the conventional side mirrors, headlights and smaller wheels. Two body styles will be offered: a five-door with an upright roof (as illustrated) and a sleeker Sportback.

Frontal styling features Audi’s Singleframe grille (which is mostly closed off), LED headlamps, large faux intakes and a minimalist clamshell hood with scalloped outer flanks. Its profile reveals the same creased fenders as the show car; however, you’ll notice the sheet metal surfacing is more subdued in the name of aerodynamic efficiency. A charging port is located on the rear fender, and the back end has chiselled bodywork, plus an Audi A7-like LED light bar.

Under the skin

Inside, the spacious 5-seat cabin promises to be one of the best EV interiors in the business. It features Audi’s virtual cockpit, head-up display with augmented reality, multi-layer painted trim inlays and a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen with haptic-feedback. If anything, its semi-floating centre console and drive selector could prove to be controversial, but we’re speculatively nit-picking here.

Underpinning the Q4 e-tron is Volkswagen Group’s modular electrification platform (MEB), which will provide the basis for numerous other electric vehicles from compact to medium in size. It measures 4.59 meters long and has a generous 2.77-meter wheelbase with no transmission tunnel to impede on foot space.

Electrifying performance

Whilst final powertrain numbers are yet to be finalized, the concept version uses dual electric motors (one on each axle) pumping out a combined 225 kW (301 horsepower). It mainly operates in rear-drive mode, but once the Quattro all-wheel-drive setup kicks in, it’ll do the zero to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in a respectable 6.3 seconds. A higher performance RS version is said to be in the works too.

The standard Audi Q4 E-tron will form the base for the more rakish-looking Q4 E-tron Sportback SUV-Coupé

A large 82-kilowatt hour battery pack helps achieve a range of over 450 kilometres (280 miles) under the WLTP cycle. Charging is limited to a maximum rate of 125 kW; however, the time it takes to charge to 80% is a good 30 minutes. Further developments behind the scenes could see range increase further before release, although it’s not until solid-state batteries come on stream mid-decade that we’ll see substantial improvements and an end to range anxiety.

Rivals & reveal

The Q4 e-tron will battle it out against the Tesla Model Y, BMW’s controversial iX, Mercedes-Benz EQB, Volkswagen ID.4, Skoda Enyaq, Genesis JW, Nissan Ariya and Ford Mustang Mach-E.

An official debut was to take place by this year’s end, although it appears the pandemic has postponed the launch until early 2021.
