The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Hyundai Tucson is a stylish choice in the compact crossover segment, with solid but unexciting powertrains and a strong feature set. With athletic looks and the performance to match, plus a roomy interior and loads of available cabin tech and convenience features, the 2015 Ford Escape is bolder and more exciting than most rivals, without much compromise.
