2015 Hyundai Tucson

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: After getting new 2.0- and 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engines for 2014, the Hyundai Tucson is virtually unchanged for 2015. LED taillights are now standard on the topline Limited model, and the entry-level GLS models are available with a Popular Equipment Package that includes a rearview camera, touchscreen audio display, and an 8-way power driver seat. Tucson offers a great blend of maneuverability, comfortable interior accommodations, and a plethora of standard features, making it a solid pick in this segment.
