Return to review
Too many buttons, distant screen.
Efficient, but slow by current standards.
Low, nearly flat floor. Even the front passenger seat folds.
Less cargo space than in larger crossovers, but sufficient for typical use.
Two glove compartments.
Good height and decent room, but small, high windows.
Comfortable seats, but the headrests are too far forward for some people.
"Wood" trim too glossy, too obviously not the real thing.
Intellink display itself bright and well-designed.
Buick identity clearest from this angle.
Instrument panel appears upscale, especially in saddle and brown.
Inside the Tucson, warm colors limited to seats, less artful styling.
Upscale details, warm tones.
Close up of the rear pillar.
Rear pillar a bit busy, with extraneous crease and aero-enhancing black applique.
Tuscon's exterior styling more aggressive, and not as clean.
Darker lower body cladding reduces visual height, along with large wheels yields good proportions.
Cute yet upscale.
