2018 Hyundai Tucson SpecsThe roads of Savannah, Pooler, and Hinesville are calling. Which small SUV will you choose to make your mark on them? At Peacock Hyundai Savannah, we want to give you a look at two incredible options: the Hyundai Tucson and Ford Escape.

They're both primed for top-notch performance, but only one can be your next new crossover SUV. Check them out, weigh their attributes, and decide which has more of what you need! If you have any questions, just reach out to us.

Tucson vs Escape: Engine Specifications  

2018 Hyundai Tucson PerformanceSo, what do the Tucson and Escape have going on under their hoods? They each offer standard 4-cylinder engines that can get you from Point A to Point B without issue. Each of those engines cranks out roughly 165 horsepower for a highly capable drive around town.

Looking for top-notch efficiency? You'll do a bit better with the Hyundai SUV, which gets an EPA-estimated 23 city and 30 highway MPG in its base trim. The Escape is somewhat less economical, getting just 21 city and 29 highway MPG. With the Tucson as your road companion, you'll stay away from the pump longer.

Interior Features: Getting Comfortable

It's easy to get comfortable in the Hyundai Tucson and Ford Escape. Both offer two rows of seating for up to five people, and adults will find plenty of room to stretch out in both rows. There's more than 38 inches of legroom in the Tucson backseat and more than 37 inches in the Escape's rear quarters.

However, if you have young children who need car seats, you'll find the LATCH connectors in the Tucson a bit more accommodating. Test drivers have found the hardware easy to locate and use, which isn't the case in the Escape. There, the lower anchors are hidden deep in the seat and can be hard to find.

Technology for Your Convenience

2018 Hyundai Tucson Technology PackageFor your entertainment and information, the Tucson and Escape use highly intuitive multimedia systems. Both offer smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, so you can send texts, make calls, manage your music library, and more-all with the touchscreen or the sound of your voice!

You'll hear crisp and clear notes with either the Infinity® premium sound system (Tucson) or the Sony® premium sound system. Only the Tucson system offers Clari-Fi™ Music Restoration Technology, which gives your music a more authentic sound-the original sound, before it was lost in the digitization process.

Hyundai Tucson vs Ford Escape: The Verdict

There's no doubt that the Hyundai Tucson and Ford Escape are two exceptional rides, as you can see from our car comparison. Shoppers across Savannah, Pooler, and Hinesville have a tough choice ahead of them as they hunt for their next new small SUV.

However, when it comes to fuel economy, LATCH belts, and technology, the Hyundai SUV rises above in a few key ways. If you think it might be the crossover SUV you need, just set up a test drive here at Peacock Hyundai Savannah and try it out for yourself!
