The Kia Sportage is bringing new technology and more standard features with it to Friendly Kia in New Port Richey, FL, for the 2022 model year. While the exterior of this Kia crossover remains the same as its 2021 counterpart, the inside of the Sportage has received a revamp.
More often than not the Kia Sportage is compared to the Hyundai Tucson crossover, which has received an entire overhaul for the 2022 model year. So, how does the updated 2022 Kia Sportage compare to the completely redesigned 2022 Hyundai Tucson? Let’s find out!

Even after an entire overhaul, the performance of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson still falls short of the 2022 Kia Sportage. The 2022 Sportage lineup comes equipped with a standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that delivers 181 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. At the top of the lineup, the 2022 Sportage SX Turbo is fitted with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that makes up to 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. This available engine blows the only available Tucson out of the water.
