Passengers in the back also get their own power outlet, and those with allergies will appreciate the Hyundai Tucson’s air filter for pollen and dust. Windows, door locks and the deck lid are all powered features, though this is becoming increasingly common. Cabin storage includes door cubbyholes and space in the console, as well. Rather than use all five seats, four adults will enjoy the comfort of the seats, and rear passengers can take advantage of a fold-down armrest for longer drives.
In terms of the competition, the Subaru Forester has the best ground clearance of any compact crossover, great towing capacity and standard all-wheel drive. Fuel economy can suffer as a result, however. The Toyota Rav4 has better cargo volume, but doesn’t have as many standard features and worse fuel economy. The Nissan Rogue has a more striking exterior, but the continuously-variably transmission causes many headaches and hunts for gears.
What sticks out among compact crossovers is that the Tucson has both the features and the handling to match its handsome exterior lines.
