Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Hyundai Tucson puts service ahead of sizzle, and caps it with an excellent warranty.

Pros
A simple but appealing look
Refined ride
A quiet cockpit
Reasonable fuel economy
Excellent warranty coverage

Cons
Chintzy SE trim
Smaller cargo area than in rivals
Limited’s the only model for top tech

By:

The 2018 Hyundai Tucson ranked #7 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Tucson has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Excellent crash test scores
Longer warranty than most
Comfortable and quiet

Cons
Mediocre cabin materials in lower trim levels
Base engine provides slow acceleration

By: 
usnews.com

We like the Value trim level. It lives up to its name by giving you a huge number of desirable features for an agreeable price. Its turbocharged engine also produces a pleasing amount of power. We also think that heated seats and the additional stain-resistant cloth make the absence of leather upholstery just fine.

PROS
Lots of features for the money
Top safety scores
Optional turbocharged engine delivers peppy acceleration
Comfortable ride on rough roads

CONS
Some disappointing interior pieces
Some advanced driver safety aids only available on top trim
Less cargo space than top rivals
Slow acceleration with base engine

The 2018 Kia Soul puts style ahead of safety features and turbo power.

Turbo-4 power
Versatile hatchback body
Still a manual on the order sheet

Cons
Engines can be noisy
6-speed automatic hunts through gears
Mediocre gas mileage
Top safety tech unavailable with turbo

Pros
Comfortable, roomy cabin
Considerable cargo space
Upscale interior
Energetic turbocharged engine available
Outstanding warranty and predicted reliability rating

Cons
Sluggish base engine
Below-average gas mileage

By: 
usnews.com

Only a few changes were made to the Soul for 2018. The base Soul’s Convenience package now gets an upgraded UVO3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus automatic climate control. Midrange Soul Plus models now get the UVO3 system as standard.

Pros
Funkiness on wheels,
powerful and efficient turbo engine,
comfortable cabin.

Average cargo capacity,
no all-wheel-drive option.
