Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Tucson offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Wrangler, with comparable head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler 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 Jeep Wrangler, 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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Tucson or the Jeep Wrangler, 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. The Hyundai Tucson carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wrangler.

Dimensions
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.

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

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

Performance
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.

Utility
The Hyundai Tucson offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wrangler, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Hyundai Tucson, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Wrangler.

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