2018 Hyundai Tucson review: Our expert's take


What it is: The Tucson is Hyundai’s compact SUV with seating for five and a choice of front- or all-wheel drive. Competitors include the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4.


Last year’s base SE with the Popular Equipment Package is now the SEL trim, and the SE Plus is now the SEL Plus. The SEL gets a standard 7-inch touchscreen audio system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity.
