Compare 2016 Chevrolet Equinox vs 2016 Hyundai Tucson in New Bern, NC

The 2016 Hyundai Tucson Excels in Style and Substance

The 2016 Hyundai Tucson is here to make compact crossover SUVs look good. The same can't be said for the Chevy Equinox, which doesn't benefit from Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy. The Tucson shines thanks to headlights and a grille that form a cohesive visual unit when viewed from the front. A strong character line flows off the front wheel, down the side of the car, and ends up over the taillights. The Tucson takes a stance that looks agile, and form follows function.

You won't find a dual-clutch transmission in the Equinox, or any other crossover at this price point, but that changes when you take the driver's seat of a Tucson. The optional 7-speed DCT ensures optimal shifting, clean distribution of power, and far-reaching fuel economy.

Add an impressive array of standard tech features-we're talking Hyundai's BlueLink user interface, Bluetooth® wireless compatibility, and a 5-inch color touchscreen audio system-and it only gets more difficult to keep comparing the Tucson to the Chevy.

Drivers Recognize the 2016 Hyundai Tucson for Value, Safety

We don't have to call the new Hyundai Tucson the winner in this fight. Plenty of others already have. U.S. News & World Report named it the Best Compact SUV for the Money in 2016, and MotorWeek gave it the 2016 Drivers' Choice Award for Best Small Utility. It's obvious that drivers can't stop praising the Tucson for its incredible value.

For the cherry on top, the Tucson is also a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ according to the IIHS when it's equipped with Automatic Emergency Braking.
