Hyundai’s entry in the ultra-competitive compact crossover segment is the Tucson. Completely redesigned for the 2016 model year, it’s got a striking style, a turbocharged engine, and all the equipment necessary to line up next to the rest of this popular grouping.

Crossover buyers prize cargo room and fuel economy, areas in which the Hyundai Tucson is not the class valedictorian. It does, however, drive well, have a roomy back seat, and stand out from the crowd with its eye-catching design. But is that enough to propel the Tucson to the top of crossover buyers’ consideration list? Find out with our latest Why Buy? video review.
