This is Honda HR-V Vs Hyundai Tucson comparison for 2022. The new Honda HR-V has crossed the former small and compact SUV class lines and into the increasingly known mid-size SUV class in terms of pricing but without the required increase in size. So we feel completely justified in comparing with the Hyundai Tucson, which most of the model range is priced identically to the new HR-V.

Honda HR-V Vs Hyundai Tucson exterior comparison: Once again the Tucson exterior design is an acquired taste. It is not futuristic as claimed but the ads more revenge of the prior designer’s relatives? from 80’s and 90’s. That said it is relatively unique. In comparison the HR-V looks already dated and a clone of any number of existing SUVs. Quite the opposite of the Hyundai design. We wouldn’t buy either for their looks.

Honda HR-V Vs Hyundai Tucson interior comparison: The HR-V interior is a nice and simple place to be in and suits the price to a certain extent but top rangers need more to satisfy. The Tucson on the other hand tries to continue the ‘outrageous’ design of the exterior and does essentially meet the bits and pieces design approach. While it feels Ok the materials used are down to a price. The HR-V feels nicer as it looks and feels designed accordingly. Sure the Tucson is the bigger car but the HR-V is more space efficient and feels just a large if not larger.

Honda HR-V Vs Hyundai Tucson engines and tech comparison:The HR-V has all the latest safety system and the optional hybrid engine option which takes the lead over the older Hyundai Tucson options. There is truly nothing ground breaking or exceptional about either car. That said the hybrid engine option on the HR-V makes it a winner on paper.

The conclusion and winner of the Honda HR-V Vs Hyundai Tucson comparison is the neither. The HR-V is expensive while the Hyundai Tucson look reasonably is reasonably priced. That said many reports of the transmission and self ignition problems with the Hyundai Tucson series around the world of the prior model does not help sell this car even you could cope with the exterior design. Get the Hybrid HR-V if you can afford it else another brand.
