2013 Hyundai Tucson Reviews: Tucson vs. RAV4

Compact crossover SUVs are popular because they are both fashion-forward and functional. They provide the space of a roomy sedan coupled with the style and versatility of an SUV. As the demand for this segment increases, manufacturers are eager to provide drivers with their own compact crossover SUV. With so many options to choose from, it’s important to be on the lookout for a model that keeps the safety and comfort of you and your passengers in mind, as well as a manufacturer that will stand behind their product. See how these top-sellers stack up in this review: the Hyundai Tucson vs Toyota RAV4.

Tucson vs RAV4


2013 Hyundai Tucson
The 2013 Tucson was recognized as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Hyundai proves that safety is never an option, which is why the Tucson is loaded with standard safety features like Hillstart Assist Control, Downhill Brake Control and more.
2013 Toyota RAV4

The Toyota RAV4 was not recognized for safety. It does employ the Toyota Star Safety System™ which includes features like Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control. However, the Star Safety System™ is not as comprehensive as the standard safety offerings from Hyundai.

If you’ve got passengers in tow, they will appreciate the vast amount of rear space in the Tucson. Passengers can stretch out on long journeys with nearly 5” more of hip room and over 1” more of leg room than the Toyota RAV4.

Like the Hyundai Tucson, the Toyota RAV4 also seats up to five passengers. Unfortunately, reviews report that the RAV4’s interior space is not as generous as the Tucson’s. In addition to less hip and leg space, RAV4 passengers also have less headroom than in the Tucson.


Manufacturer’s Basic Warranty

2013 Hyundai Tucson
It’s called “America’s Best Warranty™” for a reason. No one compares to New Vehicle Limited Warranty which protects the 2013 Tucson for 5 years/60,000. Even Toyota can’t touch Hyundai’s unparalleled powertrain warranty of 10 years/100,000 miles.
2013 Toyota RAV4

The 2013 RAV4 is covered for 3 years/36,000 miles under Toyota’s New Vehicle Warranty, which is two years and 24,000 less than Hyundai’s bumper-to-bumper coverage. Toyota also falls short of Hyundai when it comes to powertrain protection. The 2013 RAV4 is only covered for 6 years/60,000 miles.
