2016 BMW X1 vs. 2016 Kia Sorento Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the BMW X1, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Sorento offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X1, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X1 as you will with the Kia Sorento, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW X1 is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Sorento. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the BMW X1 is much higher than that for the Kia Sorento.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X1 is much slimmer than the Kia Sorento, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X1, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Sorento.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW X1 and the Kia Sorento are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The BMW X1 has a larger turning radius than the Kia Sorento, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X1 has a lot less horsepower than the Kia Sorento.

Utility
The BMW X1 has less seating than the Kia Sorento, making the Kia Sorento the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X1 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Kia Sorento.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW X1 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sorento.
