The Hyundai Tucson comes with a 2.4 litre four-cylinder engine, an elevated driving position and a generous cargo area that is adaptable which is combined with good road handling abilities and decent fuel economy numbers. On the other hand, Jeep Patriot boasts a similar 2.4 litre four-cylinder engine with manual transmission, automatic transmission or CVT and a decent interior that does not boast a lot of space.
In comparison, Kia Sportage comes with European exterior styling and an impressive interior coupled with a lot of gizmos imbued with a 2.4 litre four cylinder engine with manual and automatic transmission options. Jeep Wrangler lives up to its off road reputation with two body styles that is two door short wheelbase or four door long wheelbase and a 3.8 litre V6 with manual or automatic transmissions with a rather blend interior.
However, Jeep Compass boasts a 2 or 2.4 litre four-cylinder engine with either a manual transmission or CVT with all independent suspension and an interior that is comfortable, and a nice ride quality. The Honda Element has a 2.4 litre engine with a five speed automatic transmission as standard yet the cabin is tall and boxy but the drive character is capable and the interior is acceptable. Subaru Tribeca comes with a 3.6 litre six-cylinder engine and automatic transmission with optional AWD as a seven seater with a pleasant interior and a respectable drive attitude.
In stark contrast, the 2.4 litre Honda CRV embellishes a formidable and comfortable interior including a moon roof and responsive handling though it is not an ideal off roader so it is a city slacker’s dream come true with decent fuel economy. In comparison, the Audi Q7 is a luxury SUV with a 3.6 litre V6 engine and innovative AWD with a six speed transmission with an exquisite interior to say the least, but the fuel consumption is gargantuan. Similarly the Chevrolet Equinox comes with a 2.4 or 3 litre V6 engine and a six speed automatic transmission as the only option, although the styling is handsome and the ride quality absorbing but the cargo capacity is mediocre.
