2016 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2015 Nissan Xterra Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Nissan Xterra. The Nissan Xterra 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.

Convenience
The Hyundai Tucson requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan Xterra, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Tucson or the Nissan Xterra, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Hyundai Tucson and the Nissan Xterra have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Tucson is about the same width as the Nissan Xterra. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Tucson takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Xterra.

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

Handling
The Hyundai Tucson has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Xterra, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Xterra 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 Nissan Xterra.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Tucson and the Nissan Xterra. The Hyundai Tucson has less cargo space than the Nissan Xterra, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Tucson than that of the Nissan Xterra.
