If you're looking for a vehicle that's versatile and good on gas, a compact crossover may prove to be the perfect match. While the segment is full of solid choices, the 2019 Hyundai Tucson has taken another stride past the competition. Aside from refreshing the Tucson's exterior styling, Hyundai added an extra number of standard safety features for 2019. Let's see how the 2019 Hyundai Tucson compares to the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.
Hyundai designed the Tucson to deliver a great balance of power and efficiency. You'll have two capable four-cylinder engines to choose from. While the base 2.0-liter engine develops a competitive 164 horsepower, the larger 2.4-liter engine elevates performance by producing 181 horsepower. Meanwhile, all versions of the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross come equipped with a 152-horsepower engine. Whether you're commuting to work or dropping the kids off at school, you'll grow to appreciate the Tucson's extra horsepower under the hood. More responsive handling on the road gives the Tucson yet another advantage over the Eclipse Cross.
Although the 2019 Hyundai Tucson has a compact design, it can comfortably accommodate up to five people. This is one of the reasons why the Tucson is such a highly recommended family vehicle. Although the Mitsubishi Cross also seats up to five people, it does not provide as much passenger room. When riding in the new Tucson, backseat occupants will enjoy an extra 2.9 inches of legroom. There's also an extra 2.5 inches of hip room in the back of the Tucson. While both of these crossovers come standard with a touch-screen interface, only the Tucson provides standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone support. Luxurious upgrades, like ventilated front seats and wireless smartphone charging, are not even available on the Eclipse Cross.
When shopping for a new vehicle, crash protection should definitely be a top factor to consider. Chosen as a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS, the 2019 Hyundai Tucson will give everyone an extra sense of security. You can also take advantage of the Tucson's new standard driver-assist technologies. In the event you fail to respond to a fast-approaching road hazard, Hyundai's Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist system is engineered to automatically trigger your brakes. Meanwhile, Lane Keeping Assist helps prevent you from drifting out of your lane. Standard on the new Tucson, Driver Attention Alert is not even offered on the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. While some advanced safety technologies are available for the Eclipse Cross, they are only found on the upper trims.
While the 2019 Mitsubishi Cross is a solid vehicle, it's clearly outclassed by the 2019 Hyundai Tucson. A stronger engine lineup, a roomier interior, and more standard safety features help give the Tucson the edge.
