Hyundai Tucson vs Honda CRV

2013 Hyundai Tucson and the 2013 Honda CR-V Side by Side Comparison

Compact crossovers are some of the hottest-selling cars in America right now. This is likely due to the fact that these vehicles are big enough to haul more passengers and cargo but small enough to achieve incredible fuel economy. When selecting the perfect compact crossover for you, also take into consideration factors like the vehicle’s exterior styling, powertrain selection and the confidence accompanied by a manufacturer warranty. Consider this side-by-side comparison of two of the most popular vehicles in this class: the Hyundai Tucson vs the Honda CR-V.

Hyundai Tucson vs Honda CR-V


2013 Hyundai Tucson
Hyundai’s updated exterior styling stands out in a crowd of compact crossovers. With such a wide, assertive stance, it’s hard to believe the Hyundai Tucson even classifies as a compact. The Tucson embraces the fluidic design which has become a Hyundai signature. An aggressive grille and sweptback headlights frame the 2013 Tucson’s athletic body.
2013 Honda CR-V

The exterior of the Honda CR-V is contemporary, yet simple. Updated last year, the CR-V has been refined with smooth lines and a sleek new grille but other than that, Honda didn’t make many bold changes. The CR-V appears also appears slightly smaller than the Tucson as it carries a shorter width and has around an inch less of ground clearance.

Powertrain Selection

Hyundai gives buyers two engine choices for the Tucson: the efficient 2.0L 4-cylinder or the larger 2.4L 4-cylinder engine with an available six-speed SHIFTRONIC® transmission. The technology of SHIFTRONIC® allows Hyundai drivers to have the best of both worlds with ultra-efficient manual mode and easy-to-operate automatic capabilities in a single transmission.

The 2013 CR-V has one engine: the 2.4L i-VTEC 4-cylinder. This is tied to a five-speed transmission, which is available in fairly standard manual or automatic varieties. As other manufacturers like Hyundai move toward six-, seven- and even eight-speed transmissions, Honda has maintained the five-speed transmission and instead adopted new gear ratios in attempt to improve fuel economy.

Manufacturer’s Basic Warranty

2013 Hyundai Tucson
Hyundai offers the same amount of completely bumper-to-bumper coverage as Honda does for powertrain parts, plus Hyundai’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty covers the 2013 Tucson for 5-years/60,000 miles. Additionally, Hyundai’s powertrain coverage extends to an unsurpassed 10-years/100,000 miles. It’s no wonder Hyundai’s coverage is called “America’s Best Warranty™”!
2013 Honda CR-V

Honda offers considerably less warranty coverage than Hyundai. Bumper-to-bumper coverage of a 2013 CR-V protection under Honda’s New-Vehicle Limited Warranty is just 3-years/60,000-miles. Honda’s warranty for powertrain components is only slight better, offering only 5-years/60,000 miles of coverage for the CR-V.
