In the competitive compact SUV segment, the latest Hyundai Tucson checks all the boxes. It offers an efficient base model with a four-cylinder gas engine as well as a gas-electric hybrid trim and a plug-in hybrid version with up to 33 miles of all-electric range. On the road, the Tucson has a premium feel, thanks to its comfortable ride and quiet cabin. Acceleration is lackluster with the base engine, but the hybrid models get additional punch from their electric motors.
The Tucson’s interior is spacious for the class, with plenty of room for passengers and a generous cargo area. All trim levels come with a long list of standard features and advanced safety technology. Upper trim levels add options such as a 10.25-inch touchscreen interface, premium audio, and customizable ambient lighting. Primary competitors to the Tucson include the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Chevrolet Equinox.
