The compact crossover segment is a competitive one, leaving Billings and Lockwood drivers hard-pressed to choose between options such as the 2017 Kia Sportage and the 2017 Hyundai Tucson. With everything from fuel costs to comfort to cargo space being affected by your decision, it pays to make the right one, so just use this quick comparison to help you decide.


The 2017 Hyundai Tucson is able to blend performance and efficiency like no other model on the market. Thanks to its 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission, you’ll experience precise and seamless shifting, plus the following outstanding efficiency scores:

  • 2.0L Four-Cylinder: Up to 23 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway, or 21 and 26 with AWD.
  • 1.6L Turbocharged Four-Cylinder: Up to 26 mpg in the city and 32 on the highway, or 25 and 30 with AWD.

The 2017 Kia Sportage can’t compete, with efficiency scores of only just matching the Tucson’s 2.0L engine and never catching the 1.6L Turbo. And when it comes to AWD, it only is able to reach 25 mpg on the highway.


The 2017 Hyundai Tucson is one of the roomiest vehicles in its segment; in fact, Billings and Lockwood drivers will find more rear legroom in the Tucson than they would in competitors like the Nissan Rogue, Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester, or the Ford Escape.

And the Tucson really pulls away from the 2017 Kia Sportage when you come to consider cargo space. With up to 61.9 cubic feet in the former vs. just 60.1 cubic feet in the latter, the Tucson clearly comes out on top.


In addition to its superior efficiency scores and interior dimensions, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson offers a number of interior features that you won’t be able to enjoy with the 2017 Kia Sportage at any price.

Such features include:

  • YES Essentials Fabric: Works to prevent staining and odors – perfect for families.
  • Ventilated Front Seats: Keeps you cool during the hottest days of summer.
  • Heated Rear Seats: Unlike the Sportage, the Tucson can provide heated seats in both the front and rear.
