2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2018 Kia Sorento Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Kia Sorento, with comparable head- and legroom. The Kia Sorento will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Equinox.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Equinox will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. Both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Kia Sorento have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Equinox is much slimmer than the Kia Sorento, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Chevrolet Equinox is slightly shorter than the Kia Sorento, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Equinox has much lower torque than the Kia Sorento, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Kia Sorento. The Chevrolet Equinox has less cargo space than the Kia Sorento, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Equinox is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sorento.
