Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid 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 Hybrid.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid as you will with the Kia Sorento, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Hybrid will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Sorento. 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 Hybrid and the Kia Sorento have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Tucson Hybrid is a little narrower than the Kia Sorento, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Hyundai Tucson Hybrid is slightly shorter than the Kia Sorento, which may make it easier to park.

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

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia Sorento.

Utility
The Hyundai Tucson Hybrid has less seating than the Kia Sorento, making the Kia Sorento the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Hyundai Tucson Hybrid has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Kia Sorento.

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