Kia has a reputation for making peppy vehicles that are fun to drive but also offer plenty of versatility and capability for its drivers. With the crossover market being saturated with loads of small or midsize crossover SUVs, Kia has a big share of that with vehicles that stand apart from the crowd. One such vehicle is the Sorento, which is a seven-seater that is a perfect fit for families on the go. With that said, it is not without plenty of competition, including from competitors like Hyundai, which throws its hat in the ring with the Santa Fe. Which of these crossovers is right for you? We want to help you out with a comparison of the 2020 Kia Sorento vs the 2020 Hyundai Sante Fe.
|2020 Kia Sorento||vs||2020 Hyundai Santa Fe|
|185 HP||Base Horsepower||185 HP|
|22 City / 29 Hwy / 25 Combined MPG||Base Fuel Economy||22 City / 29 Hwy / 25 Combined MPG|
|73 Cubic Feet||Maximum Cargo Space||71.3 Cubic Feet|
As you can see, there are instances where the Sorento and the Santa Fe are evenly matched. We tip our hat to the Hyundai Santa Fe for its offerings. Where the Sorento is really going to stand out for customers is the amount of space. You can fit seven people inside the Sorento, whereas the Santa Fe offers seating for just five people. Even with that kind of seating capacity, the Sorento still allows for 73 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, edging out the Santa Fe. The Sorento provides 154.2 cubic feet of total passenger volume, again outshining the Santa Fe, which offers 146.6 cubic feet of passenger volume.
The 2020 Kia Sorento makes each ride enjoyable with its ample technology features for safety, convenience, and entertainment. Have the world at your fingertips with the standard seven-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ functionality. That display will also show a standard rearview camera view to help you while you’re in reverse. Remote keyless entry also comes standard for your convenience. The Sorento lineup has five trims available, each with its own unique spin on the name.
If you’re looking for a spacious and efficient crossover for family adventures or even just the daily grind, the 2020 Kia Sorento has what you’ll need.
