Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Honda CR-V, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Tucson will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-V as you will with the Hyundai Tucson, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Honda CR-V or the Hyundai Tucson, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is about the same width as the Hyundai Tucson. When looking at overall length, the Honda CR-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Tucson.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has a smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Tucson, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Tucson is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Honda CR-V and the Hyundai Tucson.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Honda CR-V and the Hyundai Tucson are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda CR-V and the Hyundai Tucson. The Honda CR-V has less cargo space than the Hyundai Tucson, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
