The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Hyundai Tucson doesn't quite take the title of best small crossover, but it handily grabs "most improved" honors. The 2010 Subaru Forester may not be as powerful or well-equipped as its rivals, but it really shines in its more carlike dynamics and superior handling.
