With more interior space than a Nissan Rogue or the old Ford Escape, the Hyundai Tucson even has more people and cargo room than the Acura RDX luxury crossover. It's considerably smaller than the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V, making it a subcompact, though its long wheelbase (longer than the Escape and CR-V) gives it a more spacious feel inside.

The front passenger space affords a good amount of head and leg room. The seats themselves have good back support, but the bottom cushion is short and tilts down a bit too much, which can become uncomfortable on anything more than a short drive.

The back seats are more supportive, and two adults will fit easily. The cloth seats are the better bargain in either case--the leather seats seem to have less shapely designs, and the cloth ones are grippy enough, with a low-maintenance fabric that's of a high-enough quality.

While the Tucson definitely doesn't have space for a third row, it does have a lot luggage space--enough room for groceries for a week for a family, too. It's the sort of rectangular, wide-open space that's also good for pets--or moving small pieces of furniture if you fold the second-row backrests forward. With cubbies and bottle holders in the console and door panels, and a deep glove box up front, there are plenty of smaller storage spaces.

There are more hard plastics inside the Tucson than we would have hoped, but fit and finish has been good in all the Tucsons we've driven, and overall the Tucson's cabin feels a step above the plain look of the CR-V or Escape.

Conclusion

On the small side of crossovers, the Hyundai Tucson gives adults just enough room in its back seat.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
