The 2016 Honda CR-V and the 2016 Hyundai Tucson are compact crossovers that have probably caught your eye here in the Elgin and Crystal Lake, IL area if you’re considering an upgrade for your family this season. Both might meet your basic criteria – good fuel economy, plenty of cargo space, good safety scores – but they’re far from equals. Take a look at how these two models compare side by side to see which one is best for you and your family!

Power and Efficiency

Shoppers in this segment have high expectations. You want fantastic fuel economy, paired with ample power to move plenty of people and cargo. So which model better fits the bill?

Well, the 2016 Hyundai Tucson is powered by a 2.0L four-cylinder engine that generates a reasonable 164 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque. The Tucson with front-wheel drive earns an EPA-estimated 23 mpg city/29 mpg highway/25 mpg combined.

The 2016 Honda CR-V, meanwhile, uses a 2.4L four-cylinder that makes an admirable 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. With standard continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive the CR-V earns 26 mpg city/33 mpg highway/29 mpg combined* based on EPA estimates.

It’s clear that the CR-V doesn’t just offer more miles per gallon – it also offers more power and muscle.

Space and Capacity

If you didn’t care about cargo space and utility you wouldn’t be shopping for an SUV. So how do these vehicles compare on that front?

The 2016 Hyundai Tucson has plenty of room with up to 61.9 cubic feet with the seats folded down and up to 31.0 cubic feet with all seats in place. The 2016 Honda CR-V has considerably more cargo area, however, with up to 70.9 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume with the rear seats down and up to 37.2 cubic feet with all seats in place. The CR-V also offers more overall passenger volume than the Tucson.
