Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Tucson than in the Toyota RAV4. The Hyundai Tucson will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Tucson as you will with the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4. 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 Hyundai Tucson and the Toyota RAV4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Tucson is about the same width as the Toyota RAV4. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Tucson takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota RAV4.

Handling
The Hyundai Tucson has a larger turning radius than the Toyota RAV4, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Hyundai Tucson is clearly the choice over the Toyota RAV4 for pulling heavy loads. The Hyundai Tucson has a little less horsepower than the Toyota RAV4.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Hyundai Tucson doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota RAV4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Tucson and the Toyota RAV4. The Hyundai Tucson has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Toyota RAV4.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Tucson than that of the Toyota RAV4.
