KIA SPORTAGE VS TUCSON: PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATIONS

Standardly leading the way in the 2020 Kia Sportage is a 2.4L inline 4-cylinder engine. You can also opt for an available 2.0L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine that pumps out 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. With this kind of power and the proper equipment, the Kia Sportage can tow up to 2,000 pounds of trailer equipment.

Pair either engine with the available Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system with locking center differential. This system strategically monitors your driving conditions and makes automatic adjustments to the torque distribution to give you the best possible grip on the road.

The 2020 Hyundai Tucson has two engine options, as well. No matter which one you go with, though, you'll max out at 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, which means less pickup and less pep.

With both models, you'll get five spacious seats with 41+ inches of front legroom and 38+ inches of rear legroom. Additionally, you'll get more than 60 total cubic feet in either model with the rear seats folded down.

Packing your cargo has never been easier, thanks to the available hands-free power liftgates offered by both models. Simply swipe your foot under the rear bumper of the vehicle, and the tailgate will rise on its own-no need to set your items down or fish your keys out of your pocket.

When it comes to luxury-level comfort, though, the Sportage is a step ahead of the Tucson. With this model, you'll be able to opt for a 10-way power driver's seat with lumbar support, as well as heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, leather seating surfaces, and more. You won't have as much of a selection with the Tucson.
