Pros: Simple, easy-to-use control layout; short overall length and responsive steering make for good close-quarters maneuverability; competitive pricing with lots of features for the money
Cons: Some testers found both the front and rear seats uncomfortable; many features are available only in expensive option packages; wide roof pillars hinder rear visibility
CG Says: The 2014 Hyundai Tucson gets new 2.0- and 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engines with direct injection, an updated available navigation system, and standard Bluetooth connectivity, among other updates. Tucson offers a great blend of maneuverability, comfortable interior accommodations, and a plethora of standard features, making it a solid pick in this segment. Want a V6? Though Tucson doesn’t offer one, the larger 7-passenger Santa Fe has one standard.
