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
The Subaru Forester requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Tucson, 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). The Hyundai Tucson is somewhat more expensive 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 Destination Charge for the Hyundai Tucson is much higher than that for the Subaru Forester.

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. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Tucson takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Forester.

Handling
The Hyundai Tucson has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Forester, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Hyundai Tucson and the Subaru Forester are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.
