Car Compare: 2010 Hyundai Tucson Vs. 2011 Kia Sportage Page 2

Follow Marty

2010 Hyundai Tucson

The Runner-Up: 2010 Hyundai Tucson

TheCarConnection Rating: 8.2 out of 10

The 2010 Hyundai Tucson is the beneficiary of an extreme makeover that works. The frumpy old Tucson couldn't manage anything nearly as compelling as this new version--which also bridges the gap between the ravishing new Sonata sedan and the lineup of car-like crossovers (not to mention the coming 2011 Hyundai Elantra.) The Tucson has good interior space, a much more flavorful look outside and in--and though it's not overtly quick and a good deal more expensive than before, it's a Top Safety Pick with plenty of standard features. And that's more than enough for the first-time crossover buyer to feel like they've been made complete.

We like:

  • Smoothed-over four-cylinder engine
  • Still offers a manual transmission
  • Spacious interior
  • Fuel economy

We don't like:

  • Sluggish performance
  • Leather seat comfort
  • Steering feel
  • Braking feel

  1. Did you also know the Tucson will have the same turbo engine, it sounds as if you think it wont get it...

    Bad stuff?

  2. I have the new 2011 Kia Sportage EX. Switched over from a 2002 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer and couldn't be happier. Maybe a bad comparison size wise, but quality of the Sportage is tops. It will take alot to make me go back to Ford, if ever.

  3. I would take the Tuscon any day; not only is it much more composed, bu it also has a much better return on investment.
