2018 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2018 Honda CR-V

Modern car buyers are looking for more than functionality and practicality when it comes to buying a family car. With the proliferation of driver assistance and infotainment technologies, drivers are looking for vehicles they can interact with. For years now, compared to other compact crossovers in the same segment, the Hyundai Tucson has been the benchmark and it has always been the one to beat. The Tucson has a close rival which almost has the same features; the Honda CR-V. When it comes to comparing the two crossovers, the Tucson goes above and beyond what the CR-V is offering. Let’s compare the 2018 Hyundai Tucson and the 2018 Honda CR-V to find out why the Tucson emerges on top.

Design & Style

When it comes to style, both the 2018 Tucson and the 2018 CR-V have designs that have too much going on to make them truly attractive. However, when you take a closer look at the 2018 Tucson, it has cleaner lines and is a bit more traditional meaning that the design will age a bit better than the CR-V. The 2018 has a more planted look and this can be felt when one drives it. The rides are more smooth, predictable and comfortable unlike the CR-V which can feel sloppy at times.

Both cars have a large cargo area. The Tucson comes with standard leather seats and passenger power seats, but this is available only on demand on the CR-V. The Tucson has more front leg room than the CR-V which offers the front passenger and driver more comfort while on the road.

Technology & Safety

Both the Tucson and the CR-V are highly rated when it comes to safety standards. They both have standard four-wheel antilock brakes, front seatbelt pretensioners, side-impact head airbags, front side-impact airbags and frontal airbags. However, the Tucson is installed with a better locking differential, adaptive headlights, rear parking sensors, a better backup camera and hill descent control. Also, the front collision and emergency breaking alert in the Tucson is better than the CR-V because it is less aggressive. When it comes to technology, the Tucson has a better infotainment and more equipment compared to the Honda CR-V.


The 2018 Hyundai Tucson has a 7-speed automatic powertrain while the 2018 Honda CR-V has a continuously variable transmission. Even though the CR-V has a better fuel economy both highway and city, the Tucson has a better torque of 195 lb-ft @ 1,500 RPM. Both cars use gasoline and have 4 engine cylinders. The Tucson has been rated highly when it comes to smooth and quitter rides which makes it the perfect car for long car rides.

The Bottom Line

As you can see, the 2018 Honda CR-V is a tough competitor. However, it is still a no match for the new 2018 Hyundai Tucson. The Tucson is priced a few hundred dollars below the CR-V meaning that you get more stuff for less money which sounds like a great deal.
