Hyundai Tucson vs Kia Sportage Trim Levels

The first notable difference appears in the number of trim levels each ride provides. For the Hyundai, you can choose among the Hyundai Tucson SE, Hyundai Tucson Value, Hyundai Tucson SEL, Hyundai Tucson Sport, Hyundai Tucson Limited, and Hyundai Tucson Ultimate, so you’re bound to find the right one.

If you’re interested in the Kia Sportage, you’re limited to only four diverse trims including LX, S, EX, and SX Turbo.

Next, we’ll go head-to-head inside both machines. Both carry the availability of heated front seats, but only the Hyundai Tucson provides you with optional heated rear seats, an added luxury. You’ll also receive more passenger room in the Hyundai with 133.2 cubic feet, while the Kia Sportage gives you 129.3 cubic feet.

Luckily, with legroom in either the Hyundai Tucson or Kia Sportage, you’re getting the same dimensions, so you’ll be happy with both. Unfortunately, the similarities end there as evidenced in the following chart.

Dimensions Front/Rear

Hyundai Tucson

Kia Sportage


39.6 inches/39.2 inches

37.6 inches/37.9 inches

Hip Room

55.6 inches/54.5 inches

54.3 inches/51.2 inches

The rear shoulder room in the Hyundai Tucson also exceeds that of the Kia Sportage with 55.5 and 55.1 inches respectively.

After you’ve completed your grocery run or need room for luggage for a skiing or snowboarding trip to Vermont, you’ll want enough space to stash your stuff.

In the Hyundai, it offers 31 cubic feet with the seats up, and 61.9 cubic feet with the seats down. The Kia Sportage cuts the space shorter with 30.7 cubic feet to start and a maximum of 60.1 cubic feet of space.

Both offer hands-free options like the hands-free smart liftgate with auto open in the Hyundai Tucson, but the Kia Sportage does not give you their available hands-free smart power tailgate until you get to the higher trim levels.

Outside of your Hyundai Tucson, you’ll be able to lead the way with LED headlights and take up the rear with LED taillights. You can also tie up extra bags or materials girded by the roof side rails. Even when frost threatens your morning commute, the heated side mirrors break the ice.

While these items can be found in the Kia Sportage, all three including the lights, roof rails, and their heated outside mirrors only come in higher trims.

For a look outside your window and windshield, the Hyundai Tucson presents you with a rearview camera with dynamic parking guidelines, so that you can back up safely. You can even upgrade to an optional Surround View Monitor, which provides more than one view from the back. Only a Rear-Camera Display comes in the Kia Sportage that is akin to the Hyundai standard comparable device.
