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, which was new for the 2019 model year, complete with a hybrid version.
