Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Ford EcoSport, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford EcoSport offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Tucson, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Hyundai Tucson requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford EcoSport, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford EcoSport will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Tucson. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford EcoSport will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Hyundai Tucson.

Dimensions
Since the Ford EcoSport is much slimmer than the Hyundai Tucson, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford EcoSport, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Tucson.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford EcoSport doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Tucson.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford EcoSport is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. The Ford EcoSport has a little less horsepower than the Hyundai Tucson.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford EcoSport is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Tucson.
