Further to the recent thread by ‘TWPC’ concerning the review by Auto Express, in case you missed it in today’s news,
the publication has continued its adoration of the Tucson by awarding it their mid-size SUV of the year prize.

KIA’s Sportage and the Skoda Enyaq also fared well, both gaining commendations from the Magazine. I’m unsure as to how the German car models failed to impress the Auto Express judges - perhaps the...ahem!.......incentives.....from the Germans weren’t quite sufficient this year to sway the judges towards their products.🤷🏼‍♂️

One well-known motoring hack was allegedly overheard explaining in Germlish to a VAG official exactly why a German car failed to garner sufficient marks to sway the judges........

.........'Hören Sie, wenn Sie für Ihre elektrische Reichweite £ 40.000 plus für ziemlich gewöhnliche Familienautos und kollosale Beträge berechnen können, können Sie es sich leisten, Journalisten einen ordentlichen Süßstoff für die Hypen für die Öffentlichkeit zu bieten! Die Koreaner haben heutzutage die Partitur gelernt und kennen sie!’

I think most people would grasp the point in spite of the language barrier.🙂

Ha! That's very interesting - thank you for the post.

Regarding Auto Express's love for the Tucson, I don't think it is totally irrational. After a year and a half of ownership I am genuinely impressed. The author of the Auto Express comment in the car of the year 2024 piece is James Disdale who is a good journo. He does some excellent two car tests with Matt Prior for Autocar.
