To see how the 2016 Honda CR-V stacks up against the Hyundai Tucson, continue reading below!

Standard Power

Both the 2016 Honda CR-V and Hyundai Tucson compact crossovers come standard equipped with 4-cylinder engines, but the CR-V's larger inline-4 provides significantly more power and performance. Honda's 2.4-liter inline-4 is utilized in the 2016 CR-V and develops an impressive 185 hp and 181 lb.-ft. of torque. A continuously variable transmission routes all that power to the front wheels, or to all for wheels with the available all-wheel drive system. The 2016 Tucson is powered by Hyundai's smaller 2.0-liter engine, which produces just 164 horses and 151 lb.-ft. of torque; that's 21 hp and 30 lb.-ft. of torque less than the Honda. The Tucson is also available will all-wheel drive, but that doesn't change the fact that it is severely underpowered when compared with Honda's new CR-V.

Standard Fuel Economy

If you are in the market for a compact crossover, then you likely expect your new vehicle to be easy on the wallet when it comes to refueling. The Honda CR-V compact crossover sips fuel with the best of them, thanks to its highly efficient powertrain. Honda's 2.4-liter engine is paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which helps the CR-V achieve an EPA-estimated 26 city/33 highway/29 combined mpg rating. Many drivers will be surprised to find out that Hyundai's smaller, less potent engine in the Tucson is also less fuel-efficient than the Honda CR-V's powertrain: it only manages an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 23 city/31 highway/26 combined mpg. As you can see, the CR-V bests the Tucson in fuel economy by a whopping three mpg on average! The most affordable and fuel-efficient models of both the Honda CR-V and the Hyundai Tucson are equipped with two-wheel drive (2WD), or more accurately, front-wheel drive (FWD). All-wheel drive (AWD) systems are available on both crossovers, with the CR-V providing the better fuel economy once again, in AWD trim. If you want more power and increased fuel efficiency in your new compact crossover, then the 2016 Honda CR-V is the easy and smart choice!

Cargo Capacity

Compact crossovers are all about versatility, and in this comparison, the 2016 Honda CR-V offers not only more space for occupants, but also more cargo-hauling ability than the Hyundai Tucson. Standard cargo capacity, or the space available when the second row of seats is in the upright position, in the 2016 CR-V is an impressive 37.2 cubic feet, compared to a mere 31 cubic feet in the 2016 Tucson. When the second row of seating is folded down, thanks to the CR-V's 60/40 split-folding rear seatbacks, cargo space in the CR-V balloons to an incredible 70.9 cubic feet; in the Tucson, you will find a maximum cargo capacity of just 61.9 cubic feet. As you can see, Honda's 2016 CR-V provides significantly more cargo capacity than the Hyundai, whether the seats are up or down. Those seven cubic feet or more of added cargo space will certainly come in handy when packing your new CR-V for a road trip or weekend adventure!

Passenger Space

If you plan on transporting friends or family in your new crossover, then you will want to find one that offers ample seating space for all five passengers. With its 104.1 cubic feet of passenger volume, the 2016 Honda CR-V provides about two cubic feet more of passenger room than its rival from Hyundai, the 2016 Tucson. The CR-V's additional passenger space can be felt throughout the cabin, including as more front and second-row shoulder room, more front headroom, and more second-row legroom. Your passengers will thank you when you choose the 2016 Honda CR-V over Hyundai's Tucson!

Standard Features

Compact crossovers provide great value not only because of their affordable prices and versatile cabins, but also when they offer an impressive list of standard features. The 2016 Honda CR-V does not disappoint in this regard, either! Honda's popular small crossover comes with a long list of standard amenities, many of which are not offered on the Hyundai Tucson base model. For instance, Honda's innovative Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines is standard equipment on the 2016 CR-V, and provides drivers with a better view of what is behind, thanks to its three different angles: normal, top-down, and wide. Hyundai, meanwhile, only fits its Tucson crossover with a basic one-angle rearview camera. You also won't find the CR-V's standard convenience features like its 60/40 split-folding rear bench seat, floor mats, anti-theft stereo, and exterior temperature gauge on the 2016 Tucson base model. Here's a brief list of some of the standard features on the Honda CR-V:

  • Eco Assist™ System

Safety Ratings

Both the 2016 Honda CR-V and Hyundai Tucson are safe SUVs, as evident by their NHTSA crash test ratings, but Honda's CR-V edges out the Hyundai as the safer option. The NHTSA has given both compact crossovers a 5-Star Overall Rating, but the CR-V performed better across the board. For instance, where the CR-V scored a perfect 5-Star rating on the NHTSA's NHTSA Side Pole Crash Safety Rating, the Tucson faltered with just a 4-Star rating.
