Need a new crossover? Not sure which model to pick? We understand. The research process can be difficult, but we’re here to help make it easier for you. We’ve chosen two top models from the segment and have compared key vehicle details side-by-side. So, without further ado, let’s match up the 2019 Honda CR-V vs the 2019 Hyundai Tucson.
When it comes to compact SUVs, there are a few specifications that are more of a priority than others. For most drivers, those would be engine capability, cargo space and fuel economy. After all, you don’t want a dull driving experience, but you also don’t want your car to suck up gas. With the 2019 Honda CR-V, you won’t have to worry about that, as the Touring model with AWD gets up to 27 mpg city, 33 mpg highway and 29 mpg combined, a significant advantage over the 2019 Tucson Ultimate with AWD.*

|27 city/33 hwy/29 combined w/ AWD*||MPG with AWD||21 city/26 hwy/23 combined w/AWD|

Despite those numbers, you may be surprised to find that CR-V has an edge in engine power as well. With 190 horsepower you’ll never feel that your crossover is lacking power. But what about cargo space? That may be the most important factor of all, since increased cargo space is one of the main reasons for moving from a sedan to a crossover. With the 2019 CR-V, you’ll have access to up to 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down. In comparison, that’s nearly 14 additional cubic feet of space for cargo over the 2019 Tucson.
As you can see, the 2019 Honda CR-V deserves a spot as one of the top models in the compact SUV segment, so contact us at Hilton Head Honda to get behind the wheel with a test drive.
