The Tucson has quietly been selling against rivals like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. While it’s not quite as spacious as its roomiest compact SUV rivals, it counters with a value-rich package that's difficult to match. All trim levels—SE, Value, SEL, Sport, Limited, and Ultimate—offer extensive standard equipment.
The SE and Value make do with a 2.0-liter engine, which is adequate rather than exciting. The 2.4-liter of the SEL and above adds some useful performance into the mix, even if it’s not exactly a fireball when it comes to acceleration. Instead, enjoy the Tucson’s fine steering and sharp suspension, which make it among the more enjoyable compact SUVs to drive. It's an impressive package. As the Tucson heads toward a redesign, don't rule out the 2021 model. Unlike so many, the Tucson manages to bow out on a high.

The 2021 Hyundai Tucson comes well-equipped from the base model. Not only does it include plenty of standard creature comforts, but it comes with some upgrades that would be considered optional or upgrades in other cars—features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a seven-inch color touchscreen infotainment system. This means you can stay connected during even the longest drives.
One of the primary reasons to purchase a crossover SUV is for the flexibility of interior space. Equipped with a 60/40 split-folding rear bench seat, the 2021 Hyundai Tucson can be used to transport up to five passengers or a combination of increased cargo space, all while retaining space for rear-seat passengers. Folding the second row all the way down will provide you with an ample cargo area of 61.9 cu-ft of space. If a road trip with the whole crew is in order, the Tucson has 31 cu-ft of cargo space behind the rear seat.
Another common attraction to SUVs is that they are often offered with all-wheel drive. The versatility of AWD coupled with the confidence it inspires in the driver are just a couple of the reasons you might be after an SUV with that feature. While the 2021 Hyundai Tucson comes standard with 2WD, all six of the Tucson's trim levels are available with all-wheel drive as an option. The AWD in the 2021 Hyundai Tucson is available with either 2.0L or 2.4L engine options as well.
The 2021 Hyundai Tucson comes well equipped with the latest in driver-assistance aids. Standard driver-assist tech includes driver-attention warning, lane-keeping assist, and forward-collision avoidance. Stepping up to the Value trim further adds blind-spot collision warning and rear cross-traffic collision warning. Both the Limited and Ultimate trims are equipped with a surround-view monitor to help you keep an eye on your complete surroundings while the Ultimate adds pedestrian detection to its forward-collision avoidance assist feature.
Whether you're looking for something more utilitarian or packed with all of the creature comforts that you'd expect from a modern luxury vehicle, one of the six available trim levels on the 2021 Hyundai Tucson is bound to meet the criteria of what you're looking for in a crossover SUV. The six available trim levels include the SE, Value, SEL, Sport, Limited, and Ultimate. While the SE is well equipped as base models go, you'll find plenty more options in the higher models too. The Ultimate, as an example, comes standard with a panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, and a larger eight-inch color touchscreen infotainment system.

The Hyundai Santa Fe is a study in options for all. From 2017 through 2019, there are several variants of the Santa Fe. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is the smaller option for 2017 and 2018, offering seating for five passengers while the standard Santa Fe for those same years is slightly larger and offers seating for up to seven passengers, benefiting from a third-row seat. For 2019, the Hyundai Santa Fe XL is the one to go with if you want three rows of seating, while the Santa Fe Sport received a complete redesign and is called just the Hyundai Santa Fe. If you're after cargo space, folding down both rows in the 2017–2019 Santa Fe (XL for 2019) will provide you with 80 cu-ft of cargo space. Standard features on the 2019 Santa Fe XL include:
