No wonder it’s so popular with our Omaha, NE customers. But how does it stack up against the competition? We think there’s no contest. The Sportage is head and shoulders above its rivals. And to prove it, we’ve put together a detailed side by side comparison of the 2020 Kia Sportage vs. Hyundai Tucson base models below. And we’ve even thrown in some information about the generous Kia warranty. So, which SUV wins in this Kia vs. Hyundai contest? Let’s find out.

Kia Sportage vs. Hyundai Tucson: Power and Performance

Raw power is where the Sportage really outshines the competition. Expect to get 181 horsepower from the Sportage, compared to just 161 from the Tucson. The Sportage also delivers 175 pounds of torque compared to just 161 from the Tucson. That’s a difference you can feel when passing other cars or driving uphill. The Sportage is the clear winner in this Kia vs Hyundai contest.

Kia vs. Hyundai: Features

The Sportage and other Kia vehicles come equipped with tons of cool features, not the least of which is the Tire Mobility Kit. Forget having to get out a jack and lugging around a spare tire when you have a flat. The Tire Mobility Kit comes with tire sealant, a tire gauge, and an air compressor. So you can easily seal and air up your tire and be on your way. After all, who wants to be stranded on the side of one of our Bellevue, NE roads, trying to change a tire? It’s a great feature to have, and you won’t find it in the Hyundai Tucson.

The Amazingly Generous Kia Warranty

Kia knows they’ve built a great vehicle in the Sportage, that’s why they’re so willing to back it up. The Kia warranty leads the industry with 10 year/100,000 mile coverage. Here’s what it covers:

  • 10-year/100,000 mile limited powertrain warranty
  • 5-year/60,000 mile limited basic warranty
  • 5-year/100,000 mile limited anti-perforation warranty
