The 2019 received a wide range of updates, so the 2020 Tucson's changes are modest. Hyundai revamped the available colors for the exterior; a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob are standard on Sport trim levels and above.

Pros
Handsome exterior, straightforward dashboard design, agreeable driving demeanor.

Cons
Less cargo space than key rivals, mediocre fuel economy, powertrain warranty doesn't transfer to second owner.

The Volkswagen T-Roc R blends the decent practicality of the regular T-Roc with bombastic performance and stunning agility. It’s a lot more fun than similarly priced rivals, so one of the best sports SUVs on sale.

Pros
Thrilling handling
Strong and flexible engine
Well equipped

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior
Some road noise
Not the roomiest

No end in sight to the SUV craze
