The 2022 Honda CR-V is back this year with little changes over the previous models. That said, the CR-V was already so far ahead of its main competitors in terms of cargo space, efficiency, and safety that Honda didn’t really need to make massive changes to its best-selling compact SUV.

Today, we look at how the Honda CR-V stacks up to the Hyundai Tucson, another popular compact SUV in Canada. The Tucson is a great vehicle, let’s get that right. Which model you should ultimately choose between the CR-V and the Tucson will depend on a host of factors including your needs for space, efficiency, how you want your compact SUV to drive, and how you want it to keep you safe. Because you can’t go wrong with either the 2022 Honda CR-V or the 2022 Hyundai Tucson. The only thing that matters is finding the right vehicle for your specific needs.
