The 2013 Honda CR-V vs. the 2013 Hyundai Tuscon

2013 Honda CR-VThe CR-V continues to be a trusted name in the American crossover class. Mechanicstown drivers can find the 2013 Honda CR-V at Middletown Honda. We’re located near the intersection of Highways 17 and 211 in Middletown, next to Gander Mountain. Drivers love the CR-V in part because of its reliability, reputation for safety, and great features. In terms of value, the 2013 Hyundai Tuscon just doesn’t compare.

The CR-V Continues to Be One of the Leaders in Its Class

Here’s how the 2013 Honda CR-V and the 2013 Hyundai Tucson stack up against one another:

  • Cargo volume. Space is an important factor in any crossover vehicle. The CR-V has a maximum cargo volume of 70.9 cubic feet, compared to the 55.8 cubic feet available in the Tucson.
  • Towing power. The CR-V has a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds, rivaling some larger vehicles, while still maintaining an average fuel economy of 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway* in 2WD models. Despite having a comparable engine size, the Tuscon is only able to tow up to 1,000 pounds.
  • Features. Several essential features come standard on the 2013 CR-V that are either unavailable or optional on the 2013 Tuscon. These include a power tailgate, a rearview camera, and a folding split 60/40 rear seat.

Both vehicles received recognition from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety as Top Safety Picks for 2013, but only the CR-V received a 5-star overall rating from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration safety tests.

Standard safety systems on the CR-V include airbags throughout the cabin, stability control, traction control, and a tire pressure monitoring system. An electronic parking assist function also comes standard — a feature that’s only optional on the Hyundai Tuscon.
