The cheapest Tucson to run is the plug-in hybrid, but the hybrid is pretty affordable to keep on the road, too

The Hyundai Tucson Hybrid should be a reasonably affordable car to run, if not offering the rock-bottom bills of a pure-electric or plug-in hybrid alternative. Its insurance rating is reasonable considering the list price, while the five-year warranty with no mileage limit is a big boon. Company-car tax is still hefty for this hybrid version due to its circa-130g/km CO2 emissions; for ultra-low rates you'll need to wait for the upcoming plug-in variant to appear.

Hyundai Tucson Hybrid insurance group

Insurance groups for the Tucson Hybrid range from 21 to 23 depending on trim level. That's roughly comparable with close rivals the Honda CR-V Hybrid (groups 22-24) and Ford Kuga Hybrid (group 20), so policies shouldn't be excessively expensive.

Warranty

Hyundai has one of the best warranties in the business, covering its cars against defects for five years with no mileage limit. Kia and MG's cover lasts for longer (seven years), but both impose a mileage limit. Toyota and Renault both put 100,000-mile caps on their five-year policies.

Servicing

Hyundai has a comprehensive service plan offering allowing customers to build a monthly plan customised to their car and annual mileage, so budgeting for maintenance will be straightforward. Exact service intervals for the latest Tucson Hybrid haven't been confirmed just yet.

Road tax

As a hybrid, the Tucson is eligible for a £10 discount on the standard UK Vehicle Excise Duty (VED, or road tax) rate of £155 a year. No version of the car exceeds the £40,000 threshold that sees owners having to pay an additional £335 a year the first five times they tax it; Hyundai bundles most equipment into trim levels rather than offering a lengthy options list, so there's no danger of exceeding it when ordering.
