2016 Hyundai Tucson vs. Its Competition

2016 Hyundai Tucson

The Tucson has its work cut out for it; it competes with rivals equipped with strong levels of safety, refinement, and interior room.

The Honda CR-V is less expensive in top-spec trim, but also less lavish.

The Toyota RAV4 has much more cargo space, but not nearly as stylish.

The Ford Escape has much more handling prowess, and available turbocharged power.

The Nissan Rogue has third-row seats, but a less desirable CVT.

The Mazda CX-5 has the sharpest handling of the group, perhaps, but less refinement and only average acceleration.
