Both the 2023 Kia Sportage and 2022 Hyundai Tucson bring strengths to the table. Kia designed the Sportage to give individuals, couples, and families a dynamic and fun vehicle they can enjoy driving around town, on the highway or even off the beaten path. Hyundai's Tucson seems better suited for strictly on-road endeavors, as it's not quite as rugged or off-road friendly as the all-new Sportage. This new Kia offers a Multi-terrain AWD Mode, which the Hyundai model lacks.
