Hyundai's been anxiously waiting to redesign their small SUV ever since the last generation resulted in a rare company misstep. But in typical Hyundai fashion, the all-new 2016 Tucson raises the bar in terms of value and appeal to produce their best CR-V fighter yet. In the hotly contested and ever growing small SUV segment, everyone is chasing Honda’s mojo with the Ford Escape closing in on the CR-V’s rearview mirror. Both are excellent choices, but here comes Hyundai and this 3rd generation effort is the first Tucson that really gets it. Upon first sight, I thought the Tucson seemed a bit undersized, and though it’s considerably longer and wider than before, the cargo area is noticeably smaller than in its chief rival…almost 10 cubic feet less with the seats folded…something accomplished by pulling a lever on the seat itself where they do lock down flat.
