Hyundai vs. Kia Brand Comparison in Rockville MD

Why Choose Hyundai Over Kia

As one of the premier Hyundai dealers serving shoppers from Baltimore, MD to Washington, DC, that's a question we get asked quite often. The fact of the matter is that the auto industry is more competitive these days than ever before, but few rivalries are more close or more contentious than that of Hyundai and Kia. Naturally, these two Korean automotive brands have a lot of similarities in their lineups but take a closer look and you'll see some key distinctions between the two. That's not to say that both aren't strong options, but we think you'll find that in many cases, there are some key advantages to choosing a new Hyundai over a new Kia these days. And if you'll indulge us, we'd love to demonstrate some of the strengths that the Hyundai brand brings to the table here at Fitzgerald Hyundai.

Shopping Convenience

If you're like a lot of folks from Arlington to Alexandria, VA these days, then you don't necessarily want to waste hours of your life shuffling around the showroom floor and dealing with pushy sales people to find your next ride. And while we think you'll find our sales staff nothing but courteous and accommodating here at Fitzgerald Hyundai, we understand that there's a certain appeal and convenience to shopping for your next car online. That's where Hyundai Shopper Assurance comes into play.

With Hyundai Shopper Assurance, you can take a streamlined approach to buying or leasing your next Hyundai car from our Rockville, MD dealership, and you can get started from the comfort of your own home. From browsing our selection with transparent online pricing to competitive digital estimates on your current car's trade-in value, flexible test drive options delivered to your doorstep and a worry-free 3-day exchange program, finding your dream Hyundai car is easier than ever here at Fitzgerald Hyundai. Unfortunately, many local Kia dealers simply can't offer you the same level of convenience.

Warranty Coverage and Perks

If you're looking for a ride that's going to be dependable in the long run, both Hyundai and Kia offer some outstanding options, and that fact is backed up by their warranty coverage. Both brands offer new vehicle limited warranty coverage for up to 5 years or 60,000 miles, and powertrain limited warranty coverage for up to 10 years or 100,000 miles. Of course, the Hyundai brand does have a slight edge in this category, offering 24/7 roadside assistance for 5 years with unlimited mileage, while the Kia brand limits their 24/7 roadside assistance plan to 5 years or 60,000 miles.

Of course, one the key advantages to choosing a new 2020 Hyundai over a new 2020 Kia these days is the fact that all new 2020 Hyundai models offer 3 years or 36,000 miles of complimentary factory scheduled maintenance, helping you cut down on cost-of-ownership and really enjoy your vehicle to the fullest.


For drivers from Alexandria to Washington, DC these days, finding a safe car is of paramount importance. Fortunately, the Hyundai brand has always been renowned for its commitment to safety security. With its Hyundai SmartSense technologies available across the 2020 lineup, there's a wealth of innovations protecting you and your loved ones on the road in a new Hyundai car. Now, that's not to say that Kia cars with their DriveWise systems are any less sophisticated in terms of safety. However, it is worth nothing that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety ranked nine 2020 Hyundai models as Top Safety Picks or better, while only six Kia models made the grade for the same model year.
