The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
One of the most improved crossovers, the 2012 Hyundai Tucson has size and value in its corner. The 2012 Nissan Rogue's comfortable ride and versatile layout make it a good fit for a value-conscious small families--but it's far from exciting to drive.
