Wow! Rav4 Prime vs CR-V Touring Hybrid vs Tucson

I'm a long time Toyota guy and for the most part, their vehicles have not disappointed over the years. We recently went on the search for a new compact SUV and looked at the Rav4 Prime, CR-V Touring Hybrid, and the new Tucson Limited here in the US (both hybrid and non versions). 2021 Rav4 Prime - In fairness to the Rav4 Prime we tested, it just came off the truck when we drove it and it was not charged. So, it drove like a gas hybrid and only saw spurts of performance as a result of the regen. The ride was Ok, performance was adequate, road noise was a bit on the high side, and the interior just seemed dated and pieced together. 2021 CR-V Touring Hybrid - was impressive in almost all respects except the road noise during highway driving was significant. The infotainment system was a bit clutsy as well. Otherwise, it seemed quite refined and was our top choice at the time. But, we decided to wait for the 2022 Tucson (glad we did). 2022 Tucson Limited (gas version) - refined and does most things very well, but the performance is average. 2022 Tucson Limited Hybrid - Wow! What a difference between the two new Tucson models. Put this Hybrid into Sport Mode and it is fun to drive, simply leaving the others in the dust in terms of performance (no practical person would need more acceleration than this (it's not Tesla quick, but as quick as most would drive a Tesla). As for all other aspects, the Tucson Hybrid is hard to beat in almost every category. The interior is fantastic in all respects with the exception of the piano black and touchscreen controls that look nice now but likely a dust-collecting annoyance down the road. There are a few downsides to note: 1) no spare tire and that IMO is a significant oversight by Hyundai since it appears there's room for at least a donut spare. 2) for some reason that Hyundai won't publicly address, the 10.25 Infotainment screen on the higher end models does not support "wireless" Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto (only wired support). However, that wireless feature is available on the lower end trims. So hopefully, there's a firmware update for this deficiency. We bought the Hybrid Limited in White w/ gray interior and couldn't be happier. I honestly don't know why Hyundai is even bothering making the gas version, given the small price difference. We did consider waiting for the PHEV version, but, liked this hybrid version so much we jumped on it. A few things to note on the Limited trim: the wipers are rain sensing and the passenger seat is full electric including up & down functions. The safety and tech on this vehicle is nearly insane and will take you some time to digest it all. Impressive. One other thing to note, all of the electrified versions of the Tucson (hybrid included) are made in Ulsan, South Korea (VIN beginning with "K"). Comparing the fit and finish of the Tucson's from the Alabama plant vs the Korea plant show better refinement on those rolling off the Ulsan assembly line, at least by my eyes as inspecting the reveal tolerances between body panels at my dealership. Given the tech, safety features, comfort, and performance of the new Tucson Hybrid, it's certainly worth the test drive if considering this class of SUV. If reliability proves positive over time, this Tucson is a game-changer in this class and hopefully inspires my friends at Toyota to significantly step up their game.

Love the 2022 hyundai tuscon

Test drove and looked at a lot of cars in this segment including luxury lines. For the price, technology, ride and style, the hyundai tuscon really separated itself. We purchased the AWD Hybrid Limited version. I've seen some negative reviews about everything being touch screen, however, I don't agree that its an issue. With apple car play, you really aren't touching the screen that often except to make an occasional climate change. I could see how non-tech savvy or elderly drivers would not appreciate it but we absolutely love it. Car drives really well. The panoramic roof and windows make the car feel bigger than it is. Would recommend this car to anyone looking in this segment. It really was no comparison after looking at 6-7 different competitors/lines.

Giant leap ahead of the 2021 Tucson

SEL 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 8A)

I recently purchased a 2022 Tucson SEL Premium. This is my household's third Tucson; we had a 2017 SE and currently have a 2021 Value Edition. There are three notable differences (not counting the difference in appearance) compared to previous model years. First and maybe most important is the 2.5L engine. Finally this SUV has a suitable sized engine. The 2.0L that previously powered the Tucson underwhelming to say the least. While he 2.5L isn't going to put you back in your seat, it's going to get the job done merging onto the highway or pulling out in fast moving traffic. Second, the seats are far more comfortable than they've been in the past. Next to the underpowered engine of past model years, this was my biggest complaint. I don't know if Hyundai is doing focus groups but they must have been made aware of the seats because they've addressed them. I couldn't imagine a long road trip in the front seats prior to the 2022 but now I'm looking forward to them. Third, the backseat passengers got some leg room. If I'm not mistake the wheelbase is slightly longer this year and that extra length was gifted to backseat passengers. We have a few six footers in the family and packed a couple in the back seat this past weekend. There were no complaints, something we heard plenty of in the past. This one upgrade from previous model years really puts the Tucson up against it's larger sibling, the Sante Fe. I can't see spending more money on the Sante Fe at this point. All in all, I'm very pleased with the new 2022 Tucson. I wasn't sure I'd get a third one but after owning it for a couple of weeks, I can't imagine buying something else at the same price.

Love this car!!

Ride is smooth Seats are very comfortable Lots of leg room in the back row (for tall folks) Lots of trunk space Get the convenience and premium package. It’s so worth it. So many great features! You will love the heated/cooling seats and steering wheel, as well as the lane assist and cruise control features used together (feels like you are driving a Tesla car that drives itself). This car is loaded with safety features. Plus the Bose sound system just puts the icing on the cake.

Technology FAILED at 1900 miles / No Solution

Review title summarizes my frustration. Car has been back at Dealer since 5/25 (nearly 8 weeks !). Corporate Field Techs have run out of suggestive solutions. 5 new parts suggested all failed. There is an electric current problem that nobody knows how to resolve. Customer Care dept is useless too — Case Manager gone quiet. Be warned. It’s great to have all the bells & whistles but at 1900 Miles on a brand new vehicle is weird. No solution in sight is weirder ! Be careful
