The truth is that when comparing the Kia Sportage 2012 and the 2012 Hyundai Tucson, there is very little separating them and the two vehicles tend to have plenty in common. This article seeks to highlight various areas of comparison and gives the differences between these two excellent vehicles for buyers to consider depending on their needs and requirements in a car.
For many folks, available space is always an important issue that those shopping for cars never fail to consider. The Kia Sportage 2012 has a little less space in the back seat for any passengers you may want to carry along than the Hyundai Tucson which is slightly bigger in this area. However when it comes to legroom and headroom there is really very little or nothing to separate the two cars.
If you were to fill up both with gas to go on a long trip, you would end up making the same number of stops for refills. In other words when it comes to consumption the two popular car models are virtually the same and none can claim a clear victory in terms fuel consumption.
There are quite a number of things to look at when considering what the car will cost. When we consider the manufacturer’s Suggested retail price (MSRP), the 2012 Hyundai Tucson is slightly pricier than the 2012 Kia Sportage. Again when you take a look at the destination charge the Hyundai Tucson is much more costly to move from the factory to the dealer selling the car.
The dimensions of the car may not make a huge difference to you until you have to park in a tight space in which case the Tucson will be a better bet because it is a little narrower than the Hyundai. But when you park it in your own garage at home where length may be an issue, there is absolutely no difference in the overall length of the two 2012 models.
If what you want to do with your car is to frequently pull heavy loads along then the Kia Sportage has a clear advantage over the other car. However if you are just looking at horsepower, the two cars tie yet again.
Maybe you have a somewhat big family and the number of people you will be able to seat in your car is important. And so your question will be which of the two seats more. Again it is virtually a tie because you be able to seat more or less the same number of passengers in both.
Looking at the warranty terms again there is hardly anything to separate the two vehicles, the two cars are again extremely similar with very little if any difference in their warranty terms to customers..
Finally both the Kia Sportage 2012 and the 2012 Hyundai Tucson, have similar torque and both cars also handle the same on the rod and even in tight corners.
Depending on what exactly you want from your 2012 Kia Sportage or 2012 Hyundai Tucson you can take your pick based on what car scores more for your particular requirements.
