TCC’s Bottom Line
One of the most improved crossovers, the 2012 Hyundai Tucson has size and value in its corner. The name rings true: this Kia has a Soul, with fun road manners and tall-wagon practicality baked into its kicky shape. Trendy or odd, the Scion xB jams plenty of space and versatility into its compact footprint.
