Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Toyota RAV4 covers more bases this year with smartphone compatibility and tough-looking off-road trims.

Pros
Great looks
New smartphone compatibility
Tough-looking TRD Off-road
Good cargo space
Standard active safety features

Cons
Compromised interior
Off-road hardware more about looks
Expensive top trims
Cheap-feeling plastics

Toyota is introducing the TRD Off-Road model for 2020, which comes with unique 18-inch wheels, all-terrain tires, a TRD Off-Road suspension kit with red coil springs, and plenty of TRD logos dotting the interior and exterior. Elsewhere in the lineup, Android Auto capability becomes a standard feature as does SiriusXM satellite radio; XLE models now come with a power-adjustable driver's seat but lose the standard moonroof, which becomes part of the optional Convenience package. The mid-range Adventure model gains a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, but that model's power liftgate is now optional. Limited trims now come with the premium JBL audio system as standard.

Pros
Rugged styling, available hybrid model, plenty of standard safety tech.

Cons
Overly spartan base model, rough-edged engine noise, mundane driving dynamics.

Pros

Cons

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
