2016 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2016 Subaru Forester Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Subaru Forester. The Subaru Forester will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Tucson.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Tucson as you will with the Subaru Forester, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Tucson will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru Forester. 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 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Subaru Forester.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Tucson is much wider than the Subaru Forester, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Hyundai Tucson is slightly shorter than the Subaru Forester, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Hyundai Tucson transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Subaru Forester.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Subaru Forester is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Hyundai Tucson and the Subaru Forester.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Tucson and the Subaru Forester. The Hyundai Tucson has less cargo space than the Subaru Forester, 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 Subaru Forester.
