2016 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2017 Kia Sportage Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Tucson offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Kia Sportage, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Hyundai Tucson and the Kia Sportage.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Hyundai Tucson, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Sportage.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Tucson will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Sportage. 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 Sportage have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Tucson is about the same width as the Kia Sportage. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Tucson takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Sportage.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Hyundai Tucson transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Kia Sportage.

Handling
The Hyundai Tucson has the same turning radius as the Kia Sportage, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Sportage is clearly the choice over the Hyundai Tucson for pulling heavy loads. The Hyundai Tucson has a little less horsepower than the Kia Sportage.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Tucson and the Kia Sportage. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Hyundai Tucson as you will in the Kia Sportage.

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