2018 Hyundai Tucson vs. The Competition | Memphis, TN

Aptus banner
The compact crossover market is a fiercely competitive one, with every automaker trying to take advantage of the segment’s red-hot popularity. At Gossett Hyundai South, we’re big fans of the 2018 Hyundai Tucson. But how does it stack up against two of its biggest rivals, the 2018 Ford Escape and the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox? As it turns out, quite well.


With an MSRP of $22,550 for the base SE trim, the Hyundai Tucson is more affordable than its compact crossover rivals. In comparison, the Ford Escape S sells for an MSRP of $23,940, while the Chevy Equinox L comes in at $24,575.

Powertrain options

With the Tucson, you can choose either FWD or AWD powertrains on every trim, from the base SE to the luxurious Limited. Neither the Escape nor the Equinox offers AWD on their base models, meaning Hyundai offers more than Ford and Chevrolet for less.

Warranty coverage

When buying a Tucson, you’ll drive with confidence knowing you’re backed by Hyundai’s outstanding warranty: five years or 60,000 miles of basic coverage and 10 years or 100,000 miles for the powertrain. The Escape and the Equinox don’t even come close to this—both offer three years or 36,000 miles of basic coverage and five years or 60,000 miles for the powertrain.

The 2018 Hyundai Tucson bests its rivals with superior affordability, powertrain options, and warranty coverage. If you’re looking for a trustworthy, cost-effective compact crossover, the Tucson is an excellent choice.
