How the Kia Sorento Outperforms the Family Crossover SUV Competition Here in Billings, MT and Beyond

Kia vehicles offer luxury for less in a variety of ways. The Kia Sorento, for instance, can seat up to seven passengers in a high-quality and attractive cabin that's outfitted in an array of upscale features. Top safety scores, user-friendly controls, versatile seating - it's all part of the Sorento package, and it's offered at a significantly lower price than many of its rivals, like the Hyundai Santa Fe and Honda Pilot. Find out more about what puts this Kia crossover ahead of the rest by perusing the comparison below:

Kia Sorento Test Drive


The Kia Sorento versus the Hyundai Santa Fe

  • The Sorento comes in five trim levels, versus the Santa Fe's mere two models, so you can invest in just the right amount of features without spending money on a fully-loaded model you don't need.
  • When it comes right down to it, price is the ultimate deciding factor in a new-vehicle investment, and the Sorento comes at a lower starting price than the Santa Fe.
  • The Sorento offers lane-departure and forward collision warning systems, neither of which are available on Santa Fe.
  • Power your way your way with a choice of two Sorento engines. Both its conventional and turbocharged four-cylinder engine options give you better fuel economy than the V6-only Santa Fe.
  • The Sorento is both lighter and wider than the Santa Fe and it boasts a tighter turning radius as well as more cargo space behind the rear seats.

The Kia Sorento versus the Honda Pilot

  • Regardless of which engine you choose, the Sorento delivers better overall fuel economy than the Pilot.
  • The Sorento can be configured to offer five-passenger seating for those drivers that don't need quite that many accommodations, while the Pilot is more like a minivan and seats eight.
  • Again, the Sorento boasts a lower starting cost than the Pilot. Talk about family-friendliness!
  • The available Kia Uvo eServices offers geo-fencing. Parental controls are not an option with Pilot.
  • Once more, the Sorento is lighter than the Pilot and flaunts a tighter turning radius for greater agility.
