Crossovers are among the most popular vehicles in America, and automotive reviewers are quick to praise this versatile classification. The 2017 Honda CR-V and the 2017 Hyundai Tucson are both well received crossover models, and with a rearview camera and many available active safety features, either one can keep your family safe while travelling in Frankfort. However, if cargo capacity and a more powerful engine are important for you, there’s only one real choice.

Premium Power

A more powerful engine can help get you up to speed on Interstate 80 near Orland Park, and if you’re planning on taking your crossover out on rough trails, you’ll appreciate that difference:

  • The 2017 Hyundai Tucson SE’s 2.0L four-cylinder engine with front-wheel drive puts out 164 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard, as well as front-wheel drive.

  • The 2017 Honda CR-V LX utilizes a larger 2.4L four-cylinder engine to deliver 184 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission are standard.

Extra power is rarely a bad thing, particularly when it’s paired with such an efficient transmission.

Cargo Capacity

One advantage of a crossover over a family sedan is the increased cargo area. You’ll enjoy plenty of room for groceries, supplies for weekend projects, and beach gear for heading up to Lake Michigan. The Honda CR-V offers 39.2 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the rear seats, and 75.8 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. Sadly, the Tucson only supplies 31.0 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 61.9 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. If you can think of a few things to do with all that extra space, choose the CR-V.
