The Honda CR-V Bests the 2014 Hyundai Tucson in MPG

January 5th, 2014 by

2014 Honda CR-VIf you’re considering the 2014 Hyundai Tucson for its mpg rating, its fuel economy, we have another suggestion. At Mid-Michigan Honda Dealers, we’ve seen the 2014 Honda CR-V for ourselves, and not only does it look and feel wonderful, but it’s more efficient than the Hyundai Tucson.

So if you’re looking for your next family vehicle to be both powerful and efficient—as well as well-equipped—you should check out the CR-V. Let’s look a little closer.

The CR-V Comes Out Ahead

First thing’s first; you’re here for those mpg numbers. The 2014 Hyundai Tucson gets 29 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg in the city. Not bad.

The 2014 Honda CR-V 2WD LX with automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city.* Those are some pretty close numbers, but it’s clear that the CR-V comes out ahead. But that’s not all.

Not only is Honda’s crossover more efficient, it’s more powerful too. The engine gets 185 hp and 164 lb-ft of torque, while the Tucson only manages 164 hp and 151 lb-ft.

Truly a win-win for Honda engineering, giving drivers a more efficient and more powerful crossover. Add in the incredible equipment that comes standard on the entry-level CR-V LX and we’re not quite sure why drivers choose the Tucson.

Some of the CR-V’s features include a touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth for phone and audio, a rearview camera, steering wheel-mounted controls, and more.
