As it turned out, the Korean “classmates” like, not at all.
Hyundai Tucson in Russia is slightly cheaper than the similar configuration KIA Sportage, that does not prevent drivers spending between cars from South Korea the equal sign in terms of functionality.
And indeed, to equip both of the crossover are kept at the same average level, while radically differing in appearance, and the dynamic abilities of the Hyundai Tucson in the background of “fellow” as it turned out, does not stand out. This is evident even when comparing the time of acceleration of KIA Sportage and “jerboa” in different conditions.
On wet roads, when you start with the gas pedal to the floor, KIA Sportage to “hundreds” accelerates in of 12.69 seconds, “deliva” competitor-colleague for a second or more. Moreover, stays on the road “Sportage” much more confident than Hyundai Tucson – steering wheel seems heavy, feedback more clearly, the pedal is pressed the car responds faster.
If we talk about favorable for high-speed driving conditions, the KIA Sportage goes to 100 km per hour from 11.2 seconds, while the Hyundai Tucson is at best close to the mark in 13 seconds, which makes the “Koreans” certainly not the most speed in the segment, but however – “Sportage” looks far preferable in all respects.
The fact that KIA Sportage Hyundai Tucson does not leave chances on the highway is notable for the fact that the crossover KIA – humble and small in terms of size, but rides nice, especially for the money. It is worth Recalling that the Sportage launched in the Russian market from $ 1.4 million rubles for the basic package and reaches 2,279 million rubles in the “top”, which goes much more interesting.
