The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Rich in value and interesting styling cues, the 2013 Hyundai Tucson's a pint-sized crossover that completely avoids SUV cliches of size and looks. A rakish crossover with a 260-horsepower four on tap, the Kia Sportage reboots its image on a few levels all at once.
