The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
One of the most improved crossovers, the 2012 Hyundai Tucson has size and value in its corner. The 2012 Honda CR-V is a great family vehicle, with a thoughtfully designed and comfortable interior, and improved refinement, but it lacks the confident, sprightly feel present in past CR-Vs.
