So popular YouTube car reviewer Doug DeMuro reviewed the Hyundai Tuscon Hybrid recently:

However, I did find it funny that basically the only thing he talked about is how the car doesn't look like a boring run of the mill SUV!

I'll admit I'm definitely liking the more interesting styling but it's not like that would have been enough if it weren't for the good overall value and options.

Do others agree with Doug that the main selling point is the looks of the car?

Agree! Nice styling is a necessary but not sufficient condition for me to buy a car. Overall value, options and power train sealed the deal. PHEV Limited

Progressive design, styling and aesthetics is a good "start", but ultimately, a pretty poor "finish"! For me, the sweet spot is when "form follows function". The fact that it's so reasonably priced (particularly when compared with other makers/models), making it quite a value proposition, really sealed the deal for me.

So much so, even though I'm not quite 6 months into my first Hyundai ever, I'm now seriously considering ordering a 2023 Ioniq 5! Anyone else?!

I think what he missed as far as "performance" goes is that unlike the competitors, the Tucson Hybrid has a real automatic transmission, and not a CVT like the others (I personally hate CVTs - had a 2015 Rogue and it was unpleasant to say the least). Also, it outperforms the CRV and Rav4 hybrids in 0-60 times by a not insignificant margin (CRV = 7.5 sec, Rav4 = 7.4 sec, Tucson = 7.1 sec).

I am not a car person, and I couldn’t care less about what a vehicle looks like. The reasons I am so eager to get a Tucson are its safety and comfort features, and that it comes in an affordable PHEV model. I like how smoothly and quietly it runs. (Several months ago, I test-drove the mild hybrid.)

It appears to me to provide a far bigger bang for the buck than the competition.

he really REALLY oversimplified that 'review'.

The Lux has a lot of great features, and one which i really like is in the head unit menu, you can drill down into seat heater/steering wheel warmer to auto turn on if the ambient temperature is below your climate control preset. Extremely handy when remote starting the vehicle.

I never use remote start myself but I just LOVE that auto seat/steering wheel heating feature!
