Hyundai Terracan Cars For Sale

The Hyundai Terracan car is a mid-size SUV manufactured between 2001 and 2007. Initially received with reservations by the South African market, the Terracan held its own and is now a well-known and less odd shape on the road. The 5-door layout and basic offering have stayed mainly the same, but the Terracan saw two facelifts, one in 2002 and one in 2004.

The boxy Korean SUV entered the South African market with tough competition in the early 2000s with consumers spoilt for choice and quite loyal to Toyota, Land Rover, Ford, and other established brands. Since then the pre-owned Terracan has gained steady ground as a dependable and, more importantly, much more cost-effective SUV. If you are not in the market for a toke brand vehicle, but looking for dependable, good performance, the Terracan might be for you.

It's the shape and outside modeling is slightly reminiscent of the Mahindra Scorpio with a slightly older design language than the current streamlined way of modeling. The square body offers more interior space. Exterior finishes are a combination of body and hard plastic. Side mirrors are quite prominent but efficient.

The interior follows the same theme: Comfortable but slightly dated. The seats are comfortable with a leather finish, with adjustable driver seat to maximize driver visibility and comfort. The back seats are mounted slightly higher than the front, with ample leg- and headspace and numerous grab-handles for rougher terrain.

The loading bay is massive, with more than enough space. But if you need to load even bigger objects, the rear seats fold down to afford 1584 cubic decimeters or litres of space. The folding of seats is quite simple and they are fitted with straps to keep them in position.

Facia is well laid-out and practical with grey and black finish, all control easy to access and use. The CD player is a bit old fashioned with a slot-type, but at least it has one. The multiple storage space and dual airbags make up for any inconvenience.

Handling is as can be expected from a high-seated two-ton SUV. On dirt roads, it is not a smooth ride and on tar, it tends to be too soft, but remember more elegant suspension systems will hike the price. Its off-road capability is quite good with reasonable grip due to the limited-slip rear diff. Ground clearance average at an ample 200mm and switch between two- and all-wheel drive is done through the press of a button in motion with a stop position switch for low-range. On tar, it is not a speedster, as can be expected, at around 14,23 seconds from 0 – 100km. It is a pleasant cruise with ample space to ensure a comfortable journey, gearbox smooth, and cabin noise acceptable in its price and class. Fuel consumption is around 8.6 litres per 100km.
