The CR-V is also designed with fun in mind with its special handling capabilities and its versatility – and there are many more reasons why it is among the top in the segment.
The CR-V continues to move ahead of the competition in the compact SUV segment each model year. Here, we compare it to the 2021 Hyundai Tucson.
The 2021 Honda CR-V is the better performer and fuel saver
Each CR-V model features a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 190 horsepower and 179 lb-ft. Of torque. The Hyundai Tucson offers two powertrains, but both don't have the output of the CR-V. The Tucson's 2.0-litre four-cylinder peaks at 160 horsepower and 150 lb-ft. of torque, and the 2.4-litre reaches 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft. of torque.
What is even more amazing than the CR-V's power is its extraordinary efficiency. It is more economical than the underpowered Tucson at every level. The FWD CR-V model achieves an efficiency rating of 8.3 L/100 km in the city and 7.0 L/100 km on the highway, which shatters the 2.0-litre FWD Tucson at 10.0 L/100 km in the city and 7.9 L/100 km on the highway. The 2.0-litre AWD Tucson elevates consumption to 10.8/9.2 L/100 km while the AWD CR-V stays low at 8.7/7.4. To make the comparison even more embarrassing, the 2.4-litre AWD Tucson elevates to 11/9.1 L/100 km.
The Honda CR-V also offers more towing capabilities, with 1,500 lb of capacity compared to only 1,000 lb for the Tucson. Overall, the CR-V is more powerful, more capable and more efficient than the Hyundai Tucson.
