No earth shattering info in this review but I enjoyed watching it.  :D

Yeah that was quite decent :goodjob:

Nice big screen, though some won't like the way it overpowers the dash like many others coming through today.

whaaaaat, no confirmed diesel?! hope that just means perhaps an updated lump  :crazy2:

To be honest, I absolutely loathe the infotainment screens of today...

although nearly every car manufacturer now sell us what resembles some after thought cheap tack-on ipad inspired electronics unit stuck on top of an otherwise well thought out dash. the new Tuscon at least looks good, but that separate indicator cluster with no sunguard binnacle...well in all honesty i'd prefer that.

maybe it's a cost of replacement issue

back in my early days of driving the cops would haul me over for having anything on top of the dashboard, even cigarette packets! :scared:

Horses for courses I guess. As I've got older I've actually gotten more accepting of changes but many of my older friends have grown more set in their ways. My Parkinson's meds have turned off most of my filters so maybe that is why I am different to most older folk.

I actually like the fact it brings things up to eye level.  Some do look better than others. My wife Trish doesn't mind it as a driver in her Kona,  but found it too in your face as a lower seated passenger in my previous PD SR.  :undecided:
