When you share a border with a saber-rattling big mouth who hates your guts, you tend to adopt a no-sudden-moves policy. So it is with hypercautious Hyundai. Into its showroom full of creditable but thoroughly unimaginative vehicles comes the new Tucson, the South Korean automaker's belated rival to the Toyota RAV4, the Honda CR-V, and the Ford Escape. The Tucson breaks no new ground in terms of styling, engineering, or packaging but, like all Hyundais, finds favor with its generous warranty, high content, and decent quality.
