Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The XC40 Recharge is an all-new model for Volvo this year and represents the Swedish brand's first foray into all-electric propulsion—that's if you don't count its Polestar division's new Polestar 2 EV.

Pros
Attractive styling,
peppy acceleration,
thoughtfully designed cabin.

Cons
Key rivals offer more driving range,
hefty curb weight,
much pricier than the gasoline model.

The Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric has an appealing interior, a decent electric range, rapid performance and impressive safety credentials. It’s expensive next to many rivals, but the lower-spec models stack up fairly well next to similarly premium (if often larger and, in some cases, more fun) alternatives.

Pros
High-quality interior
Rapid performance
Decent range

Cons
Expensive next to many rivals
Fiddly infotainment menus
No traditional PCP finance

The 2020 Hyundai Tucson comes with front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.No significant changes for the 2020 Tucson.

Pros
A wealth of features for the money
Easy-to-use infotainment system
Comfortable ride on rough roads
Interior materials are a little bit nicer than what's used in rivals

Cons
Slow acceleration with the base engine
Less cargo space than top rivals
Fuel economy falls behind class leaders

Pros
Great value
Smooth ride
Quiet interior
Excellent warranty
No-frills styling

Cons
Spartan base model
Smaller size than rivals
Top tech reserved for Limited model

By:

The 2020 Hyundai Tucson ranked #9 in Compact SUVs. Currently the Hyundai Tucson has a score of 7.7 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 27 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Relaxed ride
Good predicted reliability rating
Solid list of standard technology
Long warranty

Cons
Uninspiring engine options
Lower fuel economy estimates than rivals
Below-average cargo space

By: 
usnews.com

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.
