Subaru Forester vs Hyundai Tucson

Subaru Forester vs. Hyundai Tucson


  • The Forester offers better fuel economy than the Tucson does. With an estimated 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway compared to 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg in the Tucson
  • Although it may not seem like that much of a difference in fuel economy, when you consider the fact that the Forester is equipped with standard symmetrical all-wheel drive and the Tucson has front-wheel drive, it makes all the difference. All-wheel drive is perfect for the unexpected weather that New England turns up, allowing you to drive with confidence in any conditions or climate
  • The Forester also is equipped with a larger base model engine than the Tucson. Equipped with a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 170-horsepower and 174 pounds of torque, compared to the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine in the Tucson that produces 164-horsepower and just 151 pounds of torque.

Styling & Features

  • The Forester is larger and provides you with more space for all of your hauling needs. The Forester has a larger overall length of 180.9 inches compared to 176.2 inches from the Tucson. What really makes a difference though is the Forester has a passenger volume of 113.1 cubic feet compared to 102.2 cubic feet in the Tucson. And the available cargo room with the seats down trumps the Tucson as well with 74.7 cubic feet compared to 61.9 cubic feet.
  • The Forester comes equipped with a standard Starlink infotainment system with a seven-inch, while the Tucson only provides Bluetooth connectivity and a five-inch touchscreen

We hope that this has helped you gain some perspective around what makes the Subaru Forester such a great vehicle. For New England driving, nothing beats the performance of an all-wheel drive capable vehicle, and the Subaru Forester offers it and much more for less than the Tucson. To truly experience everything the Forester has to offer, we want to welcome you to visit us here at Somerset Subaru, proudly serving the areas of Somerset, Providence, Warwick, Fall River, and New Bedford, MA.
