Compare These Two Crossover SUVs Now

The new Kia Sportage is a highly regarded vehicle in its class. Its reputation for providing a safe, quality ride at an affordable price has made it a class fixture for decades. Beyond just features and value, however, this Kia has a unique and charming personality that drivers aren't likely to experience with class rivals like the Honda CR-V, against which the Sportage is compared today. Let's see how these two compact SUVs measure up against one another:

Kia Sportage vs. Hyundai Tucson Comparison for Augusta, GA Drivers

Which Compact SUV is Better for Augusta, GA Drivers?

Small crossovers and SUVs are the ideal vehicle for many drivers and families. We don't say that lightly here at Kia of Augusta, but if you think about what most drivers are looking for in their daily mode of transportation, it makes perfect sense. Drivers want safety, comfort, convenience and interior space for passengers and cargo, plus enough power to be able to pass confidently -- all balanced by the efficiency that doesn't require semi-weekly trips to your local fuel station. That may sound like you are asking for a lot, but with the new Sportage, you get all that and more!

A Specific Design for Both Models

Two compact crossover SUV models that deliver a strong combination of virtues in a neatly-packaged design with a comfortable interior are from Korean automakers Kia and Hyundai. Both the 2020 Kia Sportage and 2020 Hyundai Tucson are built, from the ground up, with the driver's and passenger's comfort and convenience as a central focus. But, which is better for you and your wants and preferences? Let's compare them to see!

Explore Similarities Between These Compact SUVs

Both the Kia Sportage and Hyundai Tucson bring their strengths to the table. Their nation of origin and place of value in the market are shared; plus, both vehicles are built on the same platform. That's about where the similarities end, though, since Kia and Hyundai have varying priorities for the two compact crossover SUVs. For Kia, the Sportage is designed to give individuals, couples and families alike a dynamic and fun vehicle they can enjoy driving around town or on the highway. The Tucson seems better suited as a reliable rental option with some omitted features that could wind up being missed by drivers down the road.

Compare the Active Safety Systems in Augusta, GA

Active safety systems are features offered on both of these small crossovers. The 2018 Kia Sportage has Blind Spot Detection, Lane Keep Assist and other potentially-lifesaving features available from the base model and up. Hyundai reserves the availability of similar features for the Tucson's upper trim levels.

Proficient Performance

The powertrain is another point of divergence and a notable one. The 2020 Sportage's 181-horsepower allows for more confident passing and enjoyable acceleration. The available 237-hp turbocharged engine adds thrill to a practical and reliable Kia model. The Tucson's highest-available 181-horsepower can only barely compete with the Sportage's base model, proving that the Sportage is the more spirited and fun vehicle to drive.


Kia Sportage vs. Nissan Rogue in Augusta, GA

Explore Sportage Advantages

The 2020 Kia Sportage is undoubtedly a high performer, but it faces competition from many compact crossover SUVs, including the Nissan Rogue. The sleek Sportage offers a number of key advantages over the Nissan, though, as you will see in the spec comparisons below:

Kia Sportage vs. Toyota RAV4

Sportage Shines Where RAV4 Falls Short

The Kia Sportage is a dazzling example of what next-level design and performance can be for the small SUV class. While the Toyota RAV4 compact SUV has a well-known name, it falls short in the power, performance and pricing categories, as well as its available technology, as we will see in the below comparison of these two crossovers.

The Kia Sportage is a crossover with an impressive peak horsepower of 240 in its top trim level, which has the turning radius of a compact vehicle but with more than 60 cubic feet for cargo. The RAV4 boasts just 203-HP in all of its trim levels, which is lacking in comparison, and also tows a maximum of 1,500 pounds; the Sportage performs 33 percent more grunt work with the ability to tow 2,000 pounds.
