Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Why pay a premium for head-turning style? The Hyundai Tucson will look great in your driveway, yet it still delivers the value and versatility you expect from a small crossover SUV. The Tucson's turbocharged engine is a keeper, too. Ready to learn what else we like?
The sleek new styling of the redesigned 2016 Hyundai Tucson incorporates what Hyundai calls "Fluidic Sculpture 2.0" design language, which suggests it's more of an evolutionary product than a revolutionary one. After all, version 2.0 of anything is just an outgrowth of the original; it's derivative by definition. But under the new Tucson's stylish skin, there's something closer to a revolution going on. With its sprightly and fuel-efficient turbocharged engine, roomier interior and cutting-edge safety and technology features, the latest Tucson is a real threat to disrupt the compact-crossover status quo.

Pros
Turbocharged engine delivers peppy acceleration and good fuel economy
Plenty of advanced safety and infotainment features are available
Comfortable ride on rough roads.

Cons
Slow acceleration from the SE trim's non-turbocharged engine
Clumsy low-speed shifting from the turbo engine's transmission
Certain desirable items are only offered on the Limited
Some interior materials look and feel cheap.

The 2016 Hyundai Tucson caters to drivers that put styling and features at the top of their crossover-SUV wish list.
The Hyundai Tucson is the smallest crossover SUV from the South Korean automaker—at least for the time being, in the U.S.—but this tidy vehicle is a great pick for families for a lot of reasons. It's new for 2016, and Hyundai hopes a thorough redesign that boosts economy, interior space, and handling will put the Tucson in the same league as vehicles like the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and Ford Escape.

Pros
Upscale exterior and interior design
Quiet cabin and refined ride
Innovative automatic liftgate at upper trim levels

Cons
Lots of hard plastic trim at lower trim levels
Uninspired acceleration
Less cargo space than competitors

The Hyundai Tucson enters its third generation for 2016 as an all-new compact crossover SUV. Long a competent but rather uninspiring competitor to best-sellers like the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Ford Escape, the 2016 Tucson has reinvented itself to pose a credible challenge to such stalwarts. Along with an eye-catching exterior design, this 5-passenger SUV now boasts some of the latest technology and safety aids available, such as automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection. The Tucson's new 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder still isn't the strongest in its class, but it does earn up to 33 mpg. With a starting price of under $24,000 and improvements upon its former self in almost every category, the new Tucson is ready to take on the segment's best.

Pros
If you want a small SUV with style, sophisticated technology and great fuel economy, put the 2016 Hyundai Tucson on your consideration list. Another big draw is Hyundai's excellent powertrain warranty that's good for 10 years/100,000 miles.

Cons
Though its interior space has grown, the revamped Tucson's cargo capacity still trails that of the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. Also, it isn't as quick as a turbocharged Kia Sportage or as nimble as a Mazda CX-5.

Pros
Silky powertrain

Exceptional safety scores

Cons
Unimpressive cabin materials

The 2017 Mazda CX-3 ranks 2 out of 12 Subcompact SUVs. The Mazda CX-3 is bursting with fun, featuring best-in-class performance and sporty handling that more resembles a car than an SUV. It has a comparatively low base price, yet the interior is marked by impressive materials and a handsome design. The CX-3 comes up short on rear passenger room and cargo space, however, which detracts from its convenience.

Pros
Excellent athletic handling
Class-leading fuel economy
Impressive interior design
Outstanding crash test results

Cons
Cramped rear seat
Small cargo area

Many compact crossover SUVs aren't so "compact" anymore. But the petite 2017 Mazda CX-3 might be just what you're after. It's stylish, easy to park and fun to drive. If interior space isn't a priority, this could be your ideal crossover.For 2017, the CX-3 carries over unchanged.

Pros
Excellent fuel economy
Sporty handling helps you have fun behind the wheel
Impressively quiet at highway speeds
Front seats are very comfortable and supportive
Attractive, high-quality interior with appealing features.

Cons
Snug rear seat and humble cargo capacity limit the CX-3's versatility.

The 2017 Mazda CX-3 keeps the most attractive features from last year: its price and its handling.Looks only tell half of the 2017 Mazda CX-3's story: The body cladding and badging on the CX-3 point toward a soft-roader based on the fun-to-drive Mazda 3, but there's more to its tale.The CX-3 earned a 7.2 overall rating on our scale, which is fairly high for the budget hatchback. We like its fuel economy and features, but it has room to improve on features and overall comfort.

Pros
Ample features and good value
Available all-wheel-drive system
Good handling and impressive performance for segment
Easy to learn infotainment

Cons
No manual, paddle shifters only on top models
Not a lot of rear seat room
Monochrome gauges look cheap
Head-up display is nice, but not very useful
