The 2014 Hyundai Tucson is now Available in Boulder

Vehicle shoppers in the Boulder area currently looking to take home a compact sport utility vehicle might want to look into what the 2014 Hyundai Tucson has to offer. This vehicle provides customers with a variety of standard and available accommodations that include:

  • A panoramic sunroof
  • Push-button start
  • A backup camera
  • Bluetooth audio streaming via connected smartphones

While these amenities might be attractive to some drivers, the 2014 Honda CR-V delivers some substantial competition in terms of performance, fuel economy, and overall interior volume.

Every 2014 Honda CR-V model is powered by a standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that is capable of 185 hp and 163 lb-ft of peak torque. This powertrain is also mated to a standard automatic transmission, which allows this vehicle to get an EPA-estimated 31 mpg* on the highway with ease.

Unfortunately for the 2014 Hyundai Tucson, it is only outfitted with a standard 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that produces 164 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque. It is also uses a standard automatic transmission, but this vehicle only gets an estimated 29 mpg on the highway. This makes the new Honda CR-V a better buy for performance enthusiasts who want to drive longer and fill up less.

The 2014 Honda CR-V also offers spacious cargo capacities without compromising seating space. With the rear seat up, the new Honda CR-V can accommodate up to 37.2 cubic feet of luggage. The 2014 Hyundai Tucson only offers 25.7 cubic feet of space, meaning that the rear seat would need to be folded down for more room.
