Hyundai Tucson Goes Head-Head with its Honda Rival -- Which Compact SUV Comes Out on Top?

Ours has been a favorite SUV since its 2005 debut. Theirs, Honda CR-V, is a little longer-lived, having appeared to acclaim in 1997. Both are small crossovers great for traveling southeast Louisiana -- powerful and capable, confident and fun to drive, at the industry's forefront safety-wise, comfortable, and the tech-savvy. However, when it comes down to the details, it's Hyundai Tucson that pulls ahead. Check out why here at Hyundai of Metairie -- our experts have made it easy.

Hyundai Tucson vs. Honda CR-V

  • Tucson features smart driver-assist tech in abundance. A lane-keeping system, forward collision-avoidance assist, and a driver attention warning come standard in every trim. Options are many, too. Blind-spot and rear cross-traffic collision warning systems, for instance, come standard in Tucson Value and later. There's a surround-view monitor standard in Tucson Limited, and pedestrian detection comes standard in Tucson Ultimate. CR-V, on the other hand, only has Honda LaneWatch, a front-passenger-side traffic warning system. It's only standard in EX and later to boot. The verdict: a new Tucson is the safer bet, whether you're headed up the I-10 West to Slidell or just around the corner to Kenner.
  • Cloth, durable YES Essentials cloth, or leather seating options in Tucson come available heated and ventilated up front as well as optionally heated in back. Moreover, the SUV's front seats are available power-adjustable. Plus, in select trims, they incorporate a power lumbar support. CR-V doesn't offer a comparable spill- and stain-resistant option, and it doesn't offer rear heated seats either.
  • The rear seating in Tucson collapses to yield up to 61.9 cubic feet of space for storage. Factor in available roof side rails. Consider the ability, when properly equipped, to tow anywhere from 1,500 pounds in SE and Value trims to up to 2,000 in SEL and later. The takeaway's clear: Tucson is highly cargo-friendly. CR-V, however, can only haul a trailerful up to 1,500 pounds.
  • Tucson makes both 7- and 8-inch touch-screen infotainment systems available, keeping you in control of your entertainment for the ride. CR-V offers only a 5-inch LCD in its base trim.
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay come standard in every Tucson trim. In CR-V, they're only standard in the EX trim and later. That puts in-dash smartphone app and feature access within reach for you sooner.
  • Wireless device charging is available in select Tucson trims. It's not as convenient to keep your electronics energized and ready to go in CR-V. The feature isn't offered.
  • Hyundai offers better quality assurance for its Tucson than Honda does for CR-V. Every new Tucson includes a 5-year/60,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty, 10 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain coverage, and 7 years and unlimited miles of anti-perforation protection. Each new CR-V comes with only 3 years or 36,000 miles of new vehicle coverage, 5 years or 60,000 miles of powertrain coverage, and 5 years and unlimited miles of corrosion protection.
