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
