Hello all,

I have noticed some people have created backup orders, or are deciding not to move forward. If there is someone in Alberta that have an order for the PHEV in Ultimate trim, please feel free to message me as I was unable to get to it before they closed the orders.

Chances are slim but I am just leaving this here in case it catches someone's eye.

I believe those are going to be the exact same vehicles :) , although seems 2023 may be out of reach as there are rumours of fixed allocations and they are still catching up on 2022 orders.

Speak off, I honestly wouldn't mind the Kia Sportage PHEV as well :D same platform, fancier interior
If sporty is what someone wants that would be the Sportage. Just opinion of course but I would say the Tucson looks more upscale inside and out, more of what they call a Boulavard look. Sportage more sporty. I happen not to like the shape and size of the the air vents in the Sportage or the front end. Tucson has a little more substantial disc brakes and I believe is rated to trailer more weight about 350lbs. For me the Tucson has one of the best front and rear looks obviously for some it will be the Sportage.

They are the same car, with the same engine, with the same brakes, with the same frame, they are rated the same for towing both 2000lb for phev.

3500 is for ICEs both of them.

I agree on the vents, the diffuse in Tucson is the reason my fiancee prefers it

Same cars but on several sites I see differences in interior space, size of disc brakes, towing and available trim. Just want to point out I'm not pulling out my comments from thin air.

Oh yeah, interior space can be different, they share the same platform, but I believe kia chose to move the rear seats a bit forward to get even more trunk space if I am not mistaken.

What about the official specs ?

The same wheelbase, the same width, obviously same engine and platform,

Sportage towing 2000lb (speaking of hybrids and PHEVs)
Tucson towing 2000lb (speaking of hybrids and PHEvs)
they both have 3500 for ICEs

According to kia Canada, read brake is Solid disc (11.8”) which already makes the car connection a bit off.
Tucson seems to have bigger brakes on the rear tho, so that is correct.

What I meant originally, platform and mechanical wise they are the same vehicle.

Yep in the end essentially the same platform etc. You would be deciding primarily on style.

Yep, while I like Tucson more from the outside, I find the Kia's interior more "posh" :), Tucson may have too much of the piano black, Kia has heated front shield which is both nice in the winder, but I found it a bit distracting as I could see the little lines.
The Tucson's diffuse vents are a win for my fiancee, as she is quite strict on vents.

So at the end, I am just seeing which order goes to production first :D

Hi all,

I’m also looking for a Tucson PHEV as our Honda Accord was stolen last month, but every dealer in Montreal has a min of 24 months wait time. Hopefully I can find a relia dealer with msrp and get it sooner.
