When it comes to buying a compact SUV, there are truly a lot of options out there on the market. These options offer versatility, interior space, comfort, and the latest safety technologies, and choosing between each one can be very difficult. Take the new Honda CR-V and the Hyundai Tucson. Two great compact SUVs that have a lot to offer, but chances are you can only buy one.

So, which will you choose? If we were to sum it up, we’d say that the 2019 Honda CR-V is the perfect option when we need comfort, space, fuel economy, or efficiency. That’s where it stands out against the new 2019 Hyundai Tucson.

Let’s take a closer look by exploring three areas where the 2019 Honda CR-V stands out against the 2019 Hyundai Tucson.

The other option is a 2.4-liter engine with 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque.
