TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2021 Hyundai Tucson soldiers into a sixth model year with excellent safety and value. The 2021 Kia Sportage hits with value and looks even if its performance and fuel economy slightly miss. The 2021 Nissan Rogue Sport does little to stand out in a crowded field of crossover SUVs.
