Tucson vs CR-V: Technology Features

Technology in the 2019 Tucson and CR-V is cutting-edge, and you can find plenty of innovative features in both. Both offer an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay™/Android Auto™ compatibility, so you can use your favorite smartphone apps on the go.

However, this system only comes standard in the Hyundai SUV. With the Honda SUV, you'll need to move up from the 5-inch (non-touch) screen on the base trim level.

The Tucson has a feature you won't find in the CR-V at any trim level: optional Clari-Fi™ Music Restoration Technology. This technology restores the authentic sounds your music lost in the digitization process, so you can listen to your songs as they were meant to be heard.

Driver Assistance & Safety Features

The Hyundai Tucson and Honda CR-V have reputations for safety, and it shows in their respective safety scores. Both earned an IIHS 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK award for their high performances in a series of crash tests.

They back that up with suites of safety features designed to help avoid accidents in the first place. Honda Sensing® and Hyundai SmartSense both offer lane keeping assist and forward collision warning systems to help you stay in your lane and out of front-end collisions.

However, while these features are standard in the Tucson, you'll need to upgrade beyond the base trim to get them in the CR-V.

All-Star Performance & Capabilities

Peek under their hoods, and the 2019 Tucson and CR-V look similar in several ways. Both offer a lineup of two 4-cylinder engines. With the range-topping engines, you'll see nearly 180 lb-ft of torque from these SUVs for excellent off-the-line acceleration.

Both vehicles come standard with front-wheel drive (FWD). If you want some extra traction on gravelly or wet roads, all-wheel drive (AWD) is available for both.

The Hyundai SUV does have a slight advantage in terms of towing. It can trailer up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped, which is enough pulling power to move a couple of jet skis. The Honda SUV can tow as well, but it maxes out with a 1,500-pound limit, falling short of its competition.

2019 Hyundai Tucson vs Honda CR-V: Choose Your SUV

As you can see from our car comparison, the 2019 Hyundai Tucson and Honda CR-V are capable vehicles. Shoppers across Columbia, Lexington, and Irmo have a tough choice to make between the two.

However, if you value towing capacity and many standard safety and technology features, the Tucson may just be the compact SUV you're looking for. See for yourself: Schedule a test drive here at Peacock Hyundai Columbia!
