2018 Hyundai Tucson vs 2018 Honda HR-V
While the Hyundai Kona will soon be joining the lineup and sliding into the B-segment as a subcompact crossover, currently the Tucson is the closest thing we have to the increasingly-popular automotive segment. We thought we’d see how the 2018 Hyundai Tucson measures up to one of the most popular models available in that segment, the 2018 Honda HR-V.
We’ve put together the table below to give you a more visual look at how these two crossovers differ. We thought we’d work our way right down through the table, analyzing each important specification, to give you a better idea of the advantages and similarities between the Tucson and HR-V.
2018 Hyundai Tucson
2018 Honda HR-V
|164 HP||Horsepower||141 HP|
|26 mpg||Combined Fuel Efficiency||31 mpg|
|31.0 cu. ft.||Cargo Capacity||24.3 cu. ft.|
Advantages of the 2018 Tucson
In the first row we looked at horsepower, which is an aspect that the Tucson obviously has a leg up on the HR-V in. Offering an extra 23 horsepower is actually a pretty big amount, however the second row shows the fallback of that advantage. The HR-V manages to fire back with superior fuel efficiency in the form of an extra 5 miles per gallon across both highway and city economy ratings. These advantages mean the Tucson will likely deliver a more enjoyable driving experience, but the HR-V might save you a bit of cash at the pump over time.
When it comes to space, the Hyundai Tucson and Honda HR-V are fairly similar. Skipping the third row to look at the fourth, you can tell that these two crossovers are meant for the same amount of people. However, that third row does show that the Tucson is quite a bit more spacious than the HR-V, at least when it comes to cargo, thanks to an extra 6.7 cubic feet of space to fill with whatever you need to bring along.
