Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Tucson offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Kia Seltos. The Hyundai Tucson offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Seltos, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Hyundai Tucson requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia Seltos, 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). The Hyundai Tucson is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Seltos. 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 Seltos have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Tucson is much wider than the Kia Seltos, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Tucson, which is slightly longer than the Kia Seltos.

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

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

Performance
The Hyundai Tucson has a little more horsepower than the Kia Seltos.

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 Seltos. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Hyundai Tucson as you will in the Kia Seltos.

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