The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.0
8.2

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2008 Hyundai Tucson no longer stands out in its class for performance or safety, but it’s still a great value. Though the first-generation Outlander was often overlooked, the updated 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander has emerged as a well-rounded vehicle--and one of the sportiest-driving small crossovers.
