By far, the Tucson GLS is the most affordable crossover on this list. However, it is also the closest to being a bare-bones vehicle -- at least as bare bones as a crossover can come these days. Meeting all of Bankrate's requirements, it represents a terrific value. In addition to offering Bankrate's required convenience equipment, the five-passenger Tucson GLS features a six-speaker audio system with satellite radio capability.
The giddyap comes from a 164-horsepower 2-liter four-cylinder engine. A six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission is standard, as is a hill-holder feature that prevents the vehicle from drifting back when starting out on an incline.
Well-constructed but no-frills, the interior is roomy enough. The 60-40 split rear seat back folds down and has a two-stage recline function.
