Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For its second year on the market, the Encore GX receives only a few small updates. Both SiriusXM satellite radio and wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have become standard features across the lineup, and adaptive cruise control is now available on the Preferred model as part of the optional Safety package.

Pros
Attractive exterior design,
SUV practicality,
good value compared to luxury-branded rivals.

Cons
Too many plasticky interior parts,
inadequate three-cylinder powertrains,
unexciting to drive.

Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Satellite radio now standard. Part of the first Encore GX generation introduced for 2020.

Pros
Appealing design both inside and out
Comfortable ride quality
Desirable infotainment and driving assistance tech is standard
Lots of space for passengers and cargo

Cons
Front seats are narrow and don't fit a variety of body types
Thick roof pillars reduce rear visibility
Ho-hum handling

The 2021 Hyundai Tucson's #9 ranking is based on its score within the Compact SUVs category. Currently the Hyundai Tucson has a score of 7.7 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 29 pieces of research and data elements using various sources

Pros
Balanced ride and handling
Many standard features
Long warranty

Cons
Sluggish acceleration

Hyundai is gearing up for an all-new Tucson to bow for the 2022 model year, so in the meantime it's making almost no changes to the 2021 model. In fact, the only thing that's different this year is color choices. Black Noir Pearl has been replaced by Ash Black, Gemstone Red has been replaced by Red Crimson, and Sage Brown has been replaced by Coliseum Gray.

Pros
Upscale styling,
simple interior layout,
smooth ride.

Cons
Not particularly spacious,
not particularly efficient,
lengthy warranty not transferrable.
