Very tight battle of the two. A comparison by ContractHiringandLeasing in their automotive section going through each aspect - Exterior, Interior, On the road, Running costs, and of course, the final verdict.
Who do you think is more favourable ?
A few areas of cheap-feeling switchgear let the Tucson down
Also, the Tucson costs more because it falls into a higher emissions bracket:
Both return 61.4mpg, but the Hyundai will return 119g/km CO2 emissions compared to the Nissanís 120g/km. It doesnít sound like a huge difference, but that 1g/km is enough to put the Qashqai into the 24% company car tax bracket while the Tucson remains in the 23% band.
