The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Subaru Crosstrek smooths over the edges that we didn’t like with the last version. It’s smooth, quiet, and capable—all good things because it won’t be rushed. The 2018 Hyundai Tucson puts service ahead of sizzle, and caps it with an excellent warranty.
