2017 Hyundai Tucson Golden CO

When it comes to the performance side of the spectrum, it’s clear that both the 2017 Hyundai Tucson in Golden CO and 2017 Kia Sportage are able to hold their own quite nicely. Both feature ample amounts of power under the hood and can achieve over 30 highway miles per gallon while still allowing you to store as much as you need inside. However, for those in search of a more refined and classy appearance, the 2017 Tucson holds an upper hand. Not only is its interior (accented by leather-stitched seats and Hyundai Blue Link infotainment) more upscale than that of the Sportage, but new materials have been introduced to help your time in its cabin be quieter and more relaxed than ever before. The Tucson also offers more interior passenger space than the Sportage can provide, and an automatic liftgate helps it prove more accessible and functional than many other crossovers on the market can boast.
