Seating Capacity and Cargo Space Specs

Passenger hauling and cargo space needs will likely drive the decision between the 2019 Kia Sorento and 2019 Kia Sportage. The 2019 Kia Sportage fares a little better in terms of purchase price and fuel economy, so, in general, crossover shoppers will be able to save a little bit of money when buying a similar trim level on the 2019 Sportage compared to the Sorento lineup.

However, the 2019 Sportage only has room for up to five passengers and also has a smaller overall cargo space area when all seats are folded flat. So, if you have a large family or need more than five seats for carpool duties and family visits, the 2019 Kia Sorento is going to be a better option.

In terms of amenities, trim levels, and technology offerings, the 2019 Sorento and 2019 Sportage lineups are going to be fairly similar. Both lineups should have plenty of options and configurations for drivers to find the mix of added safety and amenities that meet their needs with plenty of budget-friendly options too.
