2020 Hyundai Tucson vs. Its Competition

2020 Hyundai Tucson
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

With fierce rivals in its compact-crossover class, the 2020 Tucson offers great warranty coverage as its trump card.

The Nissan Rogue conquers the mean here: it’s stellar in nothing, but at least average or better in most ways, including ride quality, price, and safety.

The new 2020 Ford Escape promises sleek styling and a plug-in hybrid model.

The new Subaru Forester puts facial recognition to the fore, as well as top-drawer safety.

The Honda CR-V has oodles of space and style that’s made great strides.

As a default in the segment, its real rival is the Toyota RAV4, itself brand-new for the 2019 model year, complete with a hybrid version.

Quick Specs
6.5
What the 2020 Hyundai Tucson lacks in distinctiveness, it makes up for in value, safety, and features.
5.8
The 2020 Kia Sportage is refreshed, stylish, and competitive as ever, though its fuel economy is poor.
6.2
The 2019 Honda CR-V rewards owners with fantastic utility and great safety scores.
6.7
The 2019 Mazda CX-5 sates solo drivers with good handling and tasteful lines, but bigger families will want to move up in size.
6.8
The 2019 Subaru Forester is a well thought-out crossover SUV with exceptional space, a great ride, and standard AWD without a fuel-economy penalty.
6.5
With a dollop of refinement, the 2019 Toyota RAV4 would be a solid home run.
