THREE REASONS TO BUY A 2021 HONDA CR-V INSTEAD OF A 2022 HYUNDAI TUCSON


  
Are you thinking of buying a compact sport utility vehicle? Well, the good news here is that you have a lot of options at your disposal. There is always the 2021 Honda CR-V which is the most recent model of a long line of popular CR-Vs which have been some of the best-selling models in the segment for a long time. There's also the new 2022 Hyundai Tucson, which was recently redesigned.
  
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson certainly has a lot to offer, but the Honda CR-V remains of the benchmark in the segment for a variety of reasons. Here are three reasons to consider the 2021 Honda CR-V instead of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson.
  
More Interior Space
  
The 2021 Honda CR-V is one of the most spacious compact SUVs you can buy. In the trunk, you will enjoy 1110 L of cargo space vs 1,095 l in the Tucson. You'll also get 2,146 of total cargo space compared to 2,119 in the Tucson. The difference may not be huge, but we often buy an SUV because we want space and, in this case, the CR-V delivers.
  

More Performance
  
The 2021 Honda CR-V is one of the most powerful compact SUVs in its class. It outperforms the Tucson despite the fact that it has more power this year. The 2021 Honda CR-V is powered by 1.5 L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 190 horsepower along with 179 pound-feet of torque. The Tucson, on the other hand, has 187 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque.
  
The major difference in how these two SUVs perform however, can be seen in the fuel economy rating. The 2022 Hyundai Tucson averages 9.9 L per 100 km in the city and 8 L per 100km on the highway, compared to 8.7 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 7.4 L per 100km on the highway for the CR-V. That is a huge difference of almost one litre per 100 kilometres and at the end of the year, you will see the difference in your wallet.
  
More Safety
  
The 2021 Honda CR-V come standard with Honda Sensing, a full suite of active safety technologies. The Tucson does get some standard safety technologies, but it doesn't offer adaptive cruise control in the base model for example. In other words, you get more safety technology standard in the CR-V then you would in the Tucson.
