Subaru Forester vs. Hyundai Tucson

Whether it's for family drives to Concord or commutes to and from Plymouth, when you're in the market for a quality crossover with seating for five, it's hard to beat the perennially popular Subaru Forester, available now at Belknap Subaru. This longtime favorite is currently in its fifth outstanding generation, and it stands tall as one of the most sought-after crossovers on the road today.

While the Forester has a lot to offer any driver from Claremont to Laconia, we understand that it's not the only model of this size and capability that's available today. At first glance, the Forester and the Hyundai Tucson have a lot in common and present similar size, value, and features. But, delve a little further, and you'll discover a number of areas where our Forester comes out ahead of the competition.


Both crossover models present drivers with a similar starting MSRP of around $24,000. But you'll get more for your money with the Subaru Forester, which comes with more standard amenities than the Hyundai Tucson for the same price. Highlights of the base Forester include standard all-wheel drive and a slew of standard safety features, such as swiveling headlights that turn with your vehicle, neither of which come standard with the Tucson.


While both models have comprehensive menus of both standard and optional safety features, the Subaru Forester comes out ahead. For example, looking at the entry-level base models for both SUVs, you'll discover the Forester has more safety features right from the start, including automatic high beam control, adaptive cruise control, swiveling headlights, and lane departure warning, none of which are standard on the Tucson.

Subaru Signature Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

Whether it's a snowy day in Tilton or a rainy day in Manchester, when weather strikes and road conditions vary, the new Subaru Forester is the vehicle to have. Like most Subaru models, the Forester has standard all-wheel drive to lend peace of mind and extra traction when you need it. All-wheel drive is available with the Tucson as well, but only on special request as an option and not standard.

Interior Space

When it comes to design and interior space, both SUVs have four doors, two rows of seating, and accommodations for five. But the similarities pretty much end there, because the Forester has more headroom in both rows, more legroom in front and back, and more shoulder room all around than the Tucson. It also gets slightly more rear cargo space than the Hyundai SUV for your gear.
