Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda CR-V offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda CR-V and the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid.

Convenience
The Hyundai Tucson Hybrid requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda CR-V, 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 Honda CR-V will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid. 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 Honda CR-V and the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda CR-V is about the same width as the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid. When looking at overall length, the Honda CR-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid.

Handling
The Honda CR-V has a smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid is clearly the choice over the Honda CR-V for pulling heavy loads. The Honda CR-V has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Honda CR-V doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda CR-V is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid.
