2021 Hyundai Tucson

This is just an illustration, and not the real thing.
But it does look very close to all the spy shots we have seen of the next generation Tucson.

It looks quite nice. But so does the current one.
For some reason, the Tucson is not really on most buyers radar like the RAV-4 or CR-V when shopping for a compact SUV.
But it should be. Hyundai quality is really good these days. Their 1.6 Liter Turbo is more pleasant to drive than Honda's 1.5 Liter.

But with a bit over 137 000 sold last year, they are far behind the competition.
Honda sold over 384 000 CRVs last year. And the RAV4 sold an amazing 448 000 units.
(An almost crazy number...)

A lot of the RAV4 + CRV #s are probably from former Camry, Corolla, Civic + Accord owners who wanted to stay with the same make.

Why would that be crazy? Not everyone changes cars like some people change underwear. If a brand works for you, you may stick with the brand.

Not a fan of the front but it looks better than the new sonata front end. Can't wait for the big ugly grill trend (Lexus, Toyota, Hyundai, etc.) to phase out on many newer cars.

its because Kia and Hyundai's SUV twins Tucson/Sportage Santafe/Sorento don't get as good of gas milege as RAV's & CRV
