The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.0
7.4

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2016 Hyundai Tucson caters to drivers that put styling and features at the top of their crossover-SUV wish list. The 2016 Kia Sportage offers good looks, a quality interior, and the fun of available turbocharged power, but it is small inside and it's falling behind in safety ratings.
