The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.4
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. Though it might wear a spare tire on its tail like the hard-core SUVs of yore, don't let that throw you off. The 2010 Toyota RAV4 is actually a practical, fuel-efficient choice for frugal families on the go.
