2017 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2017 Toyota RAV4

These days, people looking to buy SUVs look past the cabin space and consider the technological advancements in a car before they buy it. The 2017 Hyundai Tucson and the Toyota RAV4 both offer drivers and passengers with comfort and luxurious features which make them the leading mid-size sedans in their class. However, there can only be one winner in every competition. The 2017 Hyundai Tucson goes past the various restrictions of the Toyota RAV4 to create a family crossover. If you need top notch tech, efficient performance and comfortable seating arrangements, check out why the 2017 Hyundai Tucson should be your number one choice compared to the 2017 Toyota RAV4.

Design & Style

The 2017 Hyundai Tucson has been updated with more styling, interior room and new powertrains to make it better than other SUV models. The crossover has received major improvements to make the Tucson more appealing. One other outstanding thing about the Tucson is that it always does well in terms of pricing then others.

The cosmetic changes in the 2017 Hyundai Tucson include premium materials and new door panels that are now available on the Sport trim. The upholstery is made of stain-resistant fabric available in a wide range of colors so, you don’t have to worry about kids making a mess in your car. The Tucson also has a panoramic sunroof which opens wide to allow in plenty of light.

Technology & Safety

Both vehicles have outstanding safety features but only the Tucson goes a step ahead to include features that not only consider the passengers but the pedestrians as well. Some of the safety features found in the Tucson but not in Toyota RAV4 include red cross-traffic alert, blindspot detection, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, antilock brakes, electronic stability control and break assist.

The 2017 Hyundai Tucson has additional features to ensure the car safety which include stolen vehicle recovery, car finder, remote door unlock, remote stop and climate control. The tech-savvy will enjoy multiple features via Apple Watch and Android Wear.


The 2017 Hyundai Tucson fits a top of the line 7-speed transmission system with dual clutch while the 2017 Toyota RAV4 has a 6-speed automatic transmission. The shifts on the Tucson come on seamlessly and smoothly due to the dual clutch action which allows more mileage ratings that go up to 30 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city. The 2017 Toyota RAV4 on the other hand, the mileage peaks at 29 on the highway and 23 mpg in the city.

The Bottom Line
