I have a 2002 Honda Accord, which has a stated ground clearance of 6.2 inches. I am looking to replace it with a small SUV/crossover and was looking at a Hyundai Tucson. But when I google the specs I see the ground clearance reported as 6.4 inches - a mere 0.2 inches higher than my Accord. Yet the Tuscon appears to be visibly higher than the Accord!
So how is the ground clearance typically measured? And is it just my perception that in this case the Tuscon should have more ground clearance than my Accord?
