Differences Between the 2017 Tucson and 2017 Sportage

Since Hyundai owns a big part of Kia, you will find that on a spec sheet there are numerous similarities. Of course, the similarities make it even more difficult for you to determine which model is best for your needs. After all, engine power is similar, and even the Edmunds Overall Consumer Rating, though having a slight advantage for the Tucson is pretty close.

But key differences can be found, as you can tell from the chart above. For example, the 2017 Tucson is the only one of the two to be named an IIHS Top Safety Pick. The Tucson has standard safety features like a rearview camera, driver's blind spot mirror, energy absorbing steering column and brake assist. Moreover, it has slightly better warranty coverage thanks to its corrosion warranty with unlimited miles. For rear passengers, there may also be a bit more space as well thanks to the Tucson's superior rear hip room, which is great if you frequently have people riding in the back seat.

We can't cover everything when comparing the 2017 Hyundai Tucson vs the 2017 Kia Sportage, but to learn more, you can feel free to contact us here at Coastal Hyundai.
