Hyundai Tucson vs Toyota Rav4 New Bern NC 

2016 Hyundai Tucson Offers Class-Leading Performance and Safety

The 2016 Hyundai Tucson is the ultimate value proposition, especially when pitted against challengers like the Toyota RAV4. The Tucson slots in at a lower MSRP at every trim level while offering drivers comparable performance and superior fuel economy. While the Toyota offers a more expensive Hybrid model, Hyundai lets owners choose between two reliable engines.

In addition to America's leading warranties, the Santa Fe also comes with a host of interior quality features. Whether using the Santa Fe every day, for long journeys, or as a weekend hauler, the SUV will keep all of your passengers cozy thanks to heated and ventilated front seats, 3rd-row USB outlet, Hyundai Blue Link Connected Car System, room for 7, and much more.

The Tucson also has an option for a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that guarantees efficient power and smooth shifting. No other vehicle in this class can say the same.

Hyundai's small crossover also makes the most of its space, offering a flexible interior with ample room for cargo regardless of whether the seats are folded down or not. Second row passengers will enjoy an extra inch of legroom compared to the rival RAV4.

This car also takes a step forward in safety with available Automatic Emergency Braking. With this system in place, the Tucson can detect whether it is about to collide with something, and if the driver doesn't brake, the car will take action on its own. Hyundai's safety technology also concludes pedestrian detection, and can come to a full stop if the vehicle is traveling between 5 and 43 mph. You won't find this feature on the Toyota RAV4.

Tucson Owners Benefit from High Quality and America's Best Warranty

There's no better measure of customer satisfaction that J.D. Power's annual quality study. In 2015, the Hyundai Tucson received the award for "Highest Ranked Small SUV in Initial Quality."  That means the Tucson had the fewest problems reported per 100 vehicles within its class based on responses from more than 84,000 owners.

Hyundai also offers a warranty on all new cars that make other manufacturer warranties pale in comparison. The competition has no answer for the Tucson's 10-year / 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, as well as other perks like 24-hour roadside assistance
