When it comes to crossovers, there are a multitude to choose from. Even within one specific segment, the compact crossover class for instance, you could be choosing from a number of different options from a wide array of manufacturers. But in our opinion, the best option is pretty obvious. But we thought we’d make it a bit more obvious to all of you, by comparing the 2017 Hyundai Tucson vs 2017 Toyota RAV4 to show you exactly why we put so much faith in it.
As you can see with one glance up at the table above, the two crossovers are quite similar to one another but each has its advantages. For instance, the very first row on the table shows that the Hyundai Tucson delivers an extra two miles per gallon of combined fuel efficiency. That might not seem like much, but over time you’ll end up saving a pretty hefty chunk of change at the gas pump thanks to that extra little boost.
Tthe RAV4 fires right back in the next row by offering an extra horsepower. However, unfortunately for Toyota, 1 horsepower would hardly even be noticeable. Especially when you consider the third row, which shows the Hyundai crossover weighs nearly 100 pounds less than its Toyota counterpart. Less weight means it needs less power to do the same kinds of things.
And despite that small dip in power, the Hyundai Tucson still blows the Toyota RAV4 out of the water in terms of how much weight it can carry in its cargo area. To be more specific, the Tucson offers a payload of 338 lbs. more. If these advantages have you considering the 2017 Hyundai Tucson might be the right crossover for you, be sure to schedule a test drive right here on our website.
