This is a fiercely competitive segment and the Tucson has to bring its A-game to the table.
For the most part, its comfortable, relaxed demeanor and eye-catching style succeed.
The recently refreshed Ford Escape has made big strides with turbo power and a revamped infotainment system.
The Mazda CX-5 recently was redesigned, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find many differences outside its more plush interior.
The Honda CR-V is generally a great value and has excellent crash-test scores, while the versatile Subaru Forester and value-laden Toyota RAV4 offer more interior flexibility.
