New Toyota Yaris Cross vs used Hyundai Tucson: verdict

The Toyota Yaris Cross is one of the cheapest hybrid SUVs you can buy new, but would you be better off with a one-year-old Hyundai Tucson for the same money?...

New Toyota Yaris Cross vs used Hyundai Tucson

Our verdict

Going into this test, you might've guessed that the used Hyundai Tucson would win, because you're getting a considerably larger SUV for zero pounds and zero pence extra. You'd be right, but the margin of its victory is actually very small. 

This is mainly down to the Toyota Yaris Cross doing so well in the costs section – it's night-and-day better on fuel and there's that 10-year/100,000-mile warranty. So, while it can't match the Tucson for space, interior quality or refinement, it's still a great buy.
