The New Hyundai Tucson vs. The New Honda CR-V: Which Crossover Will Drivers Around Toledo Prefer?


As engines become more efficient and powerful, crossovers are becoming more popular among car shoppers around Toledo, and it's a trend we noticed at our dealership. With their combination of capability and space and their fuel-sipping nature, these small SUVs are some of the most sensible vehicles for all manner of drivers, from young professionals to retirees, but, with so many options, which is the best for you?

We think many around Sylvania, OH will find that the Hyundai Tucson does everything at least a little bit better than competitors like the Honda CR-V, which is why we compared the two models in several key areas, price, performance, room, etc. If you're considering a new crossover, read our comparison below before purchasing one!

The Hyundai Tucson delivers a lot of bang for your buck, and that affordability advantage over the Honda CR-V shows itself in a few areas. For instance, the Tucson comes standard with convenient features like heated exterior mirrors, for winter weather, and solar control glass, for keeping cabin temp down in the summer, as well as stain-resistant cloth seats, which are a life-saver for parents. The Honda CR-V doesn't come standard with such features, nor does it offer features like ventilated front seats, heated rear outboard seats, or a dynamic bending light system for the headlights, which car shoppers can find on higher trims of the Hyundai Tucson.


Fremont, OH drivers will have some choices to make regarding the engines of each of these models as each offers more than one, but the max horsepower specs of the two models are somewhat similar. However, the Hyundai Tucson still manages to outperform the Honda CR-V with engineering advantages like a tighter turning radius, lighter body, more pound-feet of torque, and available dual-clutch automatic transmission. Plus, if you plan on using your new crossover for adventures, every Tucson but the base trim comes standard with roof rails, which you'll only find on the most expensive Honda CR-V trim.



We mentioned that the value of the Hyundai Tucson shines in several areas, and, if you look at the quick comparison chart above, you'll see that the Tucson has a lower starting price, less of a price jump from one trim level to the next, and longer lasting warranties than the Honda CR-V. However, that doesn't even cover it all as the SEL trim of the Hyundai Tucson has a lower starting price than the base CR-V, but it still comes standard with features like Apple CarPlay and heated front seats that you won't find in the base CR-V. Even with a more affordable price, the Hyundai Tucson has better features and materials, which ensures that car shoppers are getting the best value.
