Design & Style

The Tucson is a great choice for a family car since it has optimized cabin space to offer more passenger room. Both the Tucson and Ford Escape can seat five people, but the 2017 Hyundai Tucson’s backseat comes with an extra 1.4 inches of legroom. The Tucson also has an additional 2.1 inches of hip room in the back to allow passengers experience a comfortable ride. Compared to the Tucson, the Ford Escape has an oddly shaped dashboard which limits the amount of knee room. According to most reviews, most people agree that the Tucson is ideal for taking out-of-town trips.
