2018 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2019 Kia Sorento Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Hyundai Tucson than the Kia Sorento. The Kia Sorento will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Tucson.

Convenience
The Kia Sorento requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Tucson, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Hyundai Tucson is a better financial choice over the Kia Sorento, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Hyundai Tucson and the Kia Sorento have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Tucson is much slimmer than the Kia Sorento, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Hyundai Tucson, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Sorento.

Drivetrain
The Hyundai Tucson has much lower torque than the Kia Sorento, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Hyundai Tucson has a smaller turning radius than the Kia Sorento, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Tucson has a lot less horsepower than the Kia Sorento.

Utility
The Hyundai Tucson has less seating than the Kia Sorento, making the Kia Sorento the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Hyundai Tucson has less cargo space than the Kia Sorento, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Hyundai Tucson comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Sorento.
