Hyundai Tucson vs. Toyota Corolla Cross and Nissan Rogue

Compare Compact Crossovers in Nacogdoches

A modern SUV built for modern adventures, the Hyundai Tucson delivers everything one expects from an outstanding compact crossover. Recently redesigned, Tucson rolls into its fourth generation with improvements to every aspect of the driving experience as it aims for the top of the industry's most competitive class. It offers generous accommodations, excellent practicality, and an extensive roster of cutting-edge tech features.

While the segment offers plenty of options for your Carthage or Center, TX, commutes, the Hyundai Tucson's well-rounded appeal is tough to top. Below, we provide a quick look at how Tucson measures up in some important areas against the all-new Toyota Corolla Cross and the newly refreshed Nissan Rogue. To see how other Hyundai models stand out, head on over to our Hyundai model research page.

Hyundai Tucson vs. Toyota Corolla Cross

  • Accommodations: While both models have roomy front seats, the Hyundai Tucson offers 1.5 inches more headroom than the Corolla Cross, making it better suited to taller drivers. And if you have rear-seat passengers to transport, they're sure to prefer Tucson's extra legroom (41.3 inches), which exceeds the Corolla Cross (32 in.)by more than nine inches.
  • Cargo Capacity: The added versatility of extra cargo space is one of the primary reasons Rusk drivers choose an SUV. And the Hyundai Tucson excels in this area, offering 38.7 cubic feet with all seats in use, and a cavernous 80.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. The Corolla Cross comes up short, with just 26.5 cubic feet (25.2 with AWD) behind the rear seats. Curiously, Toyota doesn't list max cargo space for the Corolla Cross-perhaps because the resulting load floor doesn't lie flat, inhibiting the practicality of the extra space.
  • Performance: The Hyundai Tucson comes standard with a 187 horsepower 2.5-liter engine, giving it more internal motivation than the 169-horsepower Corolla Cross. Additionally, Tucson is available as a 226-horsepower hybrid (EPA-estimated 38 mpg combined) or a 261-horsepower plug-in hybrid (EPA 80 MPGe). Choosing the latter also gives you an estimated 33 miles of electric-only range, making it a great way to try out the EV experience while retaining the range and convenience of gasoline.

Hyundai Tucson vs. Nissan Rogue

  • Accommodations: While both models have similarly sized interiors, second-row passengers will appreciate the Hyundai Tucson for its impressive rear legroom (41.3 inches), which exceeds the Nissan Rogue (38.5 in.) by nearly three inches.
  • Cargo Capacity: Tucson and Rogue offer lots of practicality, thanks to impressive minimum and maximum cargo area measurements. Still, Tucson provides even more room for your errands and adventures, with 38.7 cubic feet behind the second row and 80.3 cubes behind the first. Rogue falls slightly behind, offering 36.5 cubic feet with all seats in use and 74.1 with the second row folded.
  • Value: With a starting MSRP of $1,350 less than the Nissan Rogue, the Hyundai Tucson offers more for your money. The Tucson SEL with the Convenience Package equips appealing features like a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, a wireless charging pad, a hands-free liftgate, a sunroof, phone-as-a-key capability, and lots more. Some of these features are reserved for the Rogue's highest trims, and others aren't available at all.
