Honda HR-V vs. Hyundai Tucson
Are you looking for an affordable subcompact or compact SUV? Both the 2016 Honda HR-V and the 2016 Hyundai Tucson are incredibly popular options. But when it comes to choosing between the two, you might find yourself in a haze of confusion.
Have no fear, though, because your friends at Braman Honda of Palm Beach have put the two together in a head-to-head vehicle comparison for your convenience. Let’s take a closer look.
Both the 2016 Honda HR-V and the 2016 Hyundai Tucson offer great capabilities, but how do they compare? For starters, an inline four-cylinder aluminum-alloy 16-valve SOHC i-VTEC engine that produces 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque powers the HR-V.
On the other hand, the Tucson offers what seems like a more powerful engine, but due to the vehicle’s larger size, it doesn’t actually feel that way. In fact, the vehicle feels slower to accelerate and slower to get moving because of the size.
The Honda HR-V offers a full suite of power and capability features to assist you during your road adventures. The vehicle offers multi-point injection for fast power, real-time all-wheel drive with an Intelligent Control System with a continuously variable transmission, as well as a six-speed manual transmission.
The Hyundai Tucson doesn’t offer a manual transmission, but there’s all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission. However, nothing compares to the fun and control of a manual transmission.
Interior Features and Quality
The interior of the two vehicles is another interesting point of comparison. While the interior of the HR-V is upscale and high quality, the interior of the Tucson feels a bit more affordable—despite the comparable price points of the two vehicles.
At first glance, the Tucson’s interior appears flashier with chrome detailing. But when it comes to actual usability, the HR-V excels. Both the driver and passenger can easily access its controls, whereas the Tucson’s controls are a little out of reach for most drivers, making it a bit inconvenient to use.
The HR-V offers soft touch materials that will still look nice for many years, while the materials in the Tucson are low quality and don’t feel that nice from the start.

Overall, both the 2016 Honda HR-V and the 2016 Hyundai Tucson are both great options for your next vehicle purchase. They do, however, offer different experiences despite their comparable pricing. While the HR-V offers high quality and value, the Tucson seems to be lacking in quite a few categories.
