2017 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2017 Subaru Forester

Shopping for a SUV that is both attractive and cost effective? Both the 2017 Hyundai Tucson and 2017 Subaru Forester are worth a spot on your shopping list. While these two car models have exceptional features, only the 2017 Hyundai Tucson offers more value in terms of cutting edge technology and interior volume. Compared to Subaru Forester, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson includes epic rates of horsepower, jaw dropping specs, ample cabin and cargo space and engaging in-cabin technologies. If you are not convinced that this is the car worth exploring, let’s have a look at why the 2017 Hyundai Tucson is superior to 2017 Subaru Forster.

Design & Style

Both cars have cutting edge design and style and they have an attractive appearance to appeal to people who look for elegance in their vehicles. However, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson has more design and style features than the 2017 Subaru Forester. The Hyundai Tucson has an innovative automatic liftgate at upper trim levels while the Subaru Forester doesn’t. The Tucson also has a zone tinted windshield which is not available with the Subaru Forester. The Hyundai Tucson enjoys a variety of onboard features that include standard auto on/off headlights, heated exterior mirrors, and heated rear passenger seats.

Technology & Safety

While both car models sport some impressive technology and safety specs, the Tucson is outfitted with more selection of new tech devices. With 2017 Hyundai Tucson, you get standbys like Apple CarPlay which allows you to gain access to programs like Sound Hound, Pandora and Yelp. The Tucson comes with an audio system that has 6 speakers with SiriusXM/AM/FM/CD/MP3 capabilities. On the other hand, the Forester offers up GPS Navigation system and STARLINK technology to keep connected but this is not as exciting as the collection of apps you enjoy in the Tucson.


When it comes to performance, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson guarantees a wild 175 hp in addition to 32 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg in the city. In addition it comes with a 1.6L Turbo GDI engine as well as a drive mode select, 7-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch and several other driver assist features. The 2017 Subaru Forester on the other hand, produces 174 lb-ft of torque and 170 hp but it does but it does not get the same assist features as Tucson. The additional performance features in the Hyundai Tucson make it a superior model to the Subaru Forester.

The Bottom Line

Physically, these two cars may appear similar and it is easy to think they have the same features, but the Hyundai Tucson has more compared to the Subaru Forester. By getting the 2017 Hyundai Tucson, you will not only be saving money but you will also be getting more in terms of style, design, tech and power at a lower price.
