2016 Honda CR-V vs 2016 Hyundai Tucson
While the Honda Civic is without a doubt the most popular Honda model on the lineup – considering it’s been the best-selling passenger car in Canada for the past 17 years – there are plenty of other popular vehicles on the lineup filling different needs for different drivers. One of the other most popular models on the road today has to be the compact CR-V crossover, which was awarded the 2015 Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year award after an exciting facelift. We wanted to see how the CR-V measures up to another one of its competitors, so we decided to compare the 2016 Honda CR-V vs 2016 Hyundai Tucson.
Technically speaking, the Hyundai Tucson is even newer than the Honda CR-V. While the CR-V received that exciting facelift for 2015, Hyundai completely remodeled the Tucson for that same model year. Both vehicles are packed with exciting new design cues and content, but like usual we thought we’d analyze the important specifications found in any crossover vehicle.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda CR-V
Starting from the top of the table above, the CR-V blasts right out of the gate with an advantage in fuel economy. Combining both highway and city efficiencies together, the Honda crossover utilizes roughly 0.8 l/100km less fuel. That’s not a massive advantage, but it’s enough to tip the hat in the 2016 CR-V’s favor. But the advantages don’t stop there, as while the Honda’s engine is more efficient it happens to be more powerful as well, delivering an extra 21 horsepower.
As if being more powerful and efficient wasn’t enough, we looked at the two vehicles’ capacities, as spaciousness is arguably the most important specification found in a crossover. Not only does the Honda CR-V offer more cargo space in the way of 6.2 cubic feet, but it has a roomier cabin to boot with an extra 8.1 cu. ft. of space to stretch out and get comfortable in.
