2016 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2016 Jeep Wrangler Review

Comparison Review

The Hyundai Tucson offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Tucson, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Hyundai Tucson, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Wrangler.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Tucson will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Wrangler. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Tucson carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wrangler.

The Hyundai Tucson is a little narrower than the Jeep Wrangler, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Hyundai Tucson, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Wrangler.

The Hyundai Tucson has much lower torque than the Jeep Wrangler, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The Hyundai Tucson has the same turning radius as the Jeep Wrangler, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Tucson has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

The Hyundai Tucson offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wrangler, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Hyundai Tucson has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Wrangler.
