The right SUV can transform everything from your daily grocery run to your yearly family road trip—but choosing just one in this highly competitive segment is far from easy! Still, savvy shoppers will note that some brands make their way to the top again and again, and we’re not at all surprised that so many Keller-area drivers end up narrowing the field to Kia vs. Hyundai!



So, which compact SUV delivers more value where it counts the most? Below, we compare the Kia Sportage vs. Hyundai Tucson head-to-head to find out.

Kia Sportage vs. Hyundai Tucson: Standard Features

You might expect two modern SUVs to look much the same inside the cabin, but the devil is in the details. The Sportage is loaded with next-level technologies like Siri® Eyes Free and driver-assist safety features like Downhill Brake Control—neither of which are available on the Tucson! You won’t find any of the following features on the Hyundai model, either:

  • Siri® Eyes Free
  • Smart Key w/ Push-Button Start and Immobilizer
  • Downhill Brake Control
  • Full-length Curtain Airbags
  • Rear Ventilation Duct

Kia Sportage vs. Hyundai Tucson: Upgrade Options

The entry-level Sportage has everything that you need to keep up with your busy schedule in North Richland Hills, and even some luxurious touches that won’t cost you a cent extra. The Tucson sings a different tune, however—requiring a pricey trim upgrade for a number of features that are included as standard on the Sportage. These include:

  • LED Daytime Running Lights
  • Rear Privacy Glass
  • Heated Outside Mirrors
  • Forward Collision Avoidance Assist w/ Pedestrian Detection

How about cargo space? The Sportage is on the larger end for a compact SUV after its 2023 redesign, but the Tucson edges out a win for maximum cargo space. If you’re looking for something more solidly midsize in a Kia model, take a closer look at the Sorento. It offers a comparable starting price and many of the same interior features, along with an extra 15+ cubic feet of cargo space.

Kia Sportage vs. Hyundai Tucson: Price

You’ve already seen that the Sportage offers a number of features that aren’t available on the Tucson, so comparing the Kia Sportage vs. Hyundai Tucson on price seals the deal. Given the nearly identically starting price of the two SUVs, there’s no question that the Sportage delivers more for your money:

  • 2022 Kia Sportage – $25,990 MSRP
  • 2022 Hyundai Tucson – $25,800 MSRP
