2018 Honda CR-V vs. Hyundai Tucson
Ah, the Honda CR-V and the 2018 Hyundai Tucson. Two spacious and capable SUVs, aka two must-haves for commuters, families and everyone else around Centennial, Aurora and Denver, Colorado.
These compact SUVs have room for the entire family, and they’re two of most well-equipped and dependable models on the market. That’s why our Mile High Honda team decided to write this 2018 Honda CR-V vs. Hyundai Tucson comparison. Get in touch with us if you have any questions!
Interior: Dimensions, Comfort
We find 40.4 inches of second leg room in the Honda CR-V, but only 38.2 inches in the Hyundai Tucson. You’ll discover 102.9 cubic feet for passengers in the Honda CR-V, but only 102.2 cubic feet in the Hyundai Tucson. We measure up to 75.8 cubic feet of cargo room (with all the seats down) in the Honda, but no more than 62 cubic feet in the Hyundai.
The CR-V definitely outpaces the Tucson in interior space. Plus, it comes with a 12-way-power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats and rear USB charging ports (on certain trims). We call that comfortable. The Hyundai Tucson simply can’t compare in this category.
Safety: Honda CR-V vs. Hyundai Tucson
The CR-V is also equipped with Honda Sensing®, an advanced suite of safety features.
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™: Could possibly prevent an accident before it’s too late.
- Lane Keeping Assist System: No more sleepy-headed, dangerous, unintentional lane shifts.
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow: Cruise control for the 21st Finally.
While the Tucson has its own safety suite, it’s not as refined as Honda Sensing®.
Performance Specs in the 2018 Honda CR-V and the 2018 Hyundai Tucson
Last, but certainly not least, there’s performance to consider. After all, why would you choose to go with an SUV if it can’t do what you need it do? And – trust us – the Honda CR-V will do what you need it to do.
Its available Real Time AWD™ system makes sure of it, as does its standard 184-horsepower, 2.4L DOHC i-VTEC® 4-Cylinder Engine. So do the rest of its performance-promoting systems and features.
On the other hand, the Hyundai Tucson isn’t the best SUV for those who want to experience power behind the wheel. Its standard engine only gets 164 horsepower, while its available turbocharged option only generates 175 horsepower. Those numbers pale in comparison to what you’ll find in the 2018 CR-V.
