2015 Hyundai Tucson vs. 2015 Kia Sportage Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Tucson offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Kia Sportage. 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
The Kia Sportage 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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Tucson or the Kia Sportage, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 a little narrower than the Kia Sportage, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 similar torque, the Hyundai Tucson and the Kia Sportage are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Hyundai Tucson and 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.
