While both vehicles offer peppy production with base four-cylinder powertrains, a stronger 1.6-liter GDI engine produces maximum 195 pound-feet over just 172 pound-feet for the RAV4 at its peak potential. Both vehicles come standard in front-wheel drive with all-wheel drive available, but the edge in under-the-hood production sides with the Hyundai SUV.

Design Features


When it comes to showcasing style, the new Hyundai Tucson has more to offer. Standard aluminum wheels capture attention, as these flashy additions aren't available for the RAV4. An optional panoramic moonroof for a different vantage point and fresh air filtration throughout the cabin isn't offered for the RAV4. Optional HID headlights, also not available, give the new Tucson an edge in visibility and a front end that lights up in a stand-out manner.


The Hyundai Tucson comes with several cabin options not offered for the RAV4, including a ventilated driver's seat and heated rear seats. Available leather seating is also not offered by the Toyota SUV. For adaptable visibility on wet days when inclement weather is a factor, standard heated mirrors can keep your surroundings clear. Don't expect to find this useful feature anywhere in the Toyota RAV4 lineup.


With standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, the new Hyundai Tucson allows you to pair your smartphone to the touchscreen interface built in. This allows you to access your favorite entertainment, navigation, messaging and connectivity features on the go. You won't find a comparable syncing platform with the Toyota RAV4, as these features aren't included.

From extra burst under-the-hood to popular technology and sophisticated cabin features the competition doesn't provide, the Hyundai Tucson proves itself worthy of recognition that Toyota RAV4 competition hasn't quite earned.
