Hyundai Tucson vs Ford Escape

  • Illinois drivers will notice that all trim levels of the Hyundai Tucson come available with HTRAC All-Wheel Drive to maximize traction when driving through Joliet in the winter months. While a four-wheel drive system is available on the Ford Escape, the system is unavailable on the base trim level.
  • The Hyundai Tucson will not let you down where interior space is concerned, with a passenger volume of 102 cubic feet, giving your backseat passengers and copilot ample leg room. The Ford Escape contains a passenger volume of 99 cubic feet and falls short where leg room is concerned.
  • While Ford SUVs can often be quite powerful, the Escape does not offer as much fuel economy and can travel up to an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. The Hyundai Tucson can travel an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

Hyundai Tucson vs Honda CR-V

  • In comparing the Hyundai Tucson to the Honda CR-V, you will find that the Tucson offers a great many more conveniences on all trim levels, including the base. Such standard and available features include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Attention Warning, a cargo area cover, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Some of these features have Honda equivalents, but only on higher trim levels.
  • The Tucson comes backed by 60-month/60,000-mile (whichever occurs first) Basic Warranty and 120 months or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage. Meanwhile, the basic warranty of the Honda CR-V lasts for only 36 months/36,000 miles while its powertrain warranty covers engine parts for 60 months or 60,000 miles.
  • Finally, the Hyundai Tucson is the more fuel-efficient crossover overall and can hold about 16 gallons of unleaded fuel, whereas the Honda CR-V falls short and holds 14 gallons of fuel. When frequently commuting to Oak Lawn, you will notice the difference this makes.

Hyundai Tucson vs Nissan Rogue

  • In comparing their transmissions, the Hyundai Tucson provides a smoother gearshift transition as you accelerate thanks to a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine of the Nissan Rogue comes paired with a two-speed continuously variable transmission, providing a clunkier and more imprecise acceleration.
  • Ultimately, the Hyundai Tucson offers the most comprehensive warranty coverage including a 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Warranty and 85 months of corrosion perforation protection. The Nissan Rogue offers 60 months/60,000 miles of powertrain coverage and 60 months of corrosion perforation protection.
