2017 Hyundai Tucson vs 2017 Subaru Forester near Reston, VA

2017 Hyundai Tucson vs 2017 Subaru Forester near Reston, VA

The battle between the 2017 Hyundai Tucson vs 2017 Subaru Forester near Reston, VA, begins with a look at the top categories that make compact crossovers the impressive powerhouses that they are: performance, safety features, interior amenities, and space. Start your next adventure in the clear winner of this comparison, the Hyundai Tucson. You can schedule a test drive with us at Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg, as soon as you read about all of its amazing capabilities.

The Forester starts off strong with a 2.5L base engine with AWD as the standard drive type, and even though the Tucson has a 2L FWD powertrain, you can opt for available AWD. The Tucson’s FWD engine generates a fuel rating of 23/30 MPG city/hwy1, but the Forester only puts out 22/29 MPG city/hwy2. These ratings are achieved via the transmission, and while the Tucson operates under a 6-speed automatic with SHIFTRONIC technology, the Forester hardly catches up with its mediocre 6-speed manual transmission.

Though both integrate traction control, the Tucson comes with standard lightweight alloy wheels, which are better for acceleration and quicker turning, and the Forester is only equipped with heavy steel wheels that take away from maneuvering capabilities. While the Forester does boast Vehicle Dynamics Control, it lacks this feature’s important counterparts, Electronic Stability Control3 and a Traction Control System, which work together to create a stronger grip for your tires during tight turns and unstable road conditions. The Tucson even has a driver’s blind spot mirror, so you’ll have a full perspective of what’s around you, but the Forester does not include this useful amenity.

Our 2017 Hyundai Tucson vs 2017 Subaru Forester near Reston, VA, comparison clearly designates the Tucson as the leading competitor, because when you open its front door, the upscale differences from the Forester become painfully evident. While the Forester can only claim four speakers throughout its cabin, the Tucson takes it up a notch with six speakers, enhancing the sound quality around you. Your back row passengers will be able to lay down and relax with rear reclining seatbacks that maximize comfort. The Forester lacks this functionality entirely, so those already lengthy drives down Dulles Access Road will seem even longer for your passengers.

Let your passengers relish in the 38.2 inches of back-row legroom in the Tucson. The Forester only provides you with 38 inches of legroom for rear-seat passengers. You know you won’t be squeezing into the driver’s seat, since the Tucson offers 55.6 inches of hip room. The 53.9-inch hip room space in the Forester will leave you feeling cramped. And don’t forget about the Tucson’s 72.8-inch wide interior space, while the Forester can only boast a width of 70.7 inches.

The compact crossovers of the 2017 Hyundai Tucson vs 2017 Subaru Forester near Reston, VA, comparison certainly fought hard to gain the leading position, but only one could take the winning title. The Tucson comes out on top, and if you liked what you saw here, get behind the wheel today when you visit Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg, located at 5200-A Jefferson Davis Highway in Fredericksburg, VA.
