Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota RAV4 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). The Toyota RAV4 is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Tucson. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Toyota RAV4 and the Hyundai Tucson have similar Destination Charges.

The Toyota RAV4 is about the same width as the Hyundai Tucson. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Toyota RAV4, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Tucson.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Toyota RAV4 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Hyundai Tucson.

Handling
The Toyota RAV4 has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Tucson, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Toyota RAV4 will do just as well as the Hyundai Tucson, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Toyota RAV4 has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Tucson.
