2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2018 Kia Sorento Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Kia Sorento, with comparable head- and legroom. The Kia Sorento offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Traverse, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Chevrolet Traverse, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Sorento.

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 Chevrolet Traverse 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 Chevrolet Traverse will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Kia Sorento.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Kia Sorento, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Traverse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Kia Sorento.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Traverse is clearly the choice over the Kia Sorento for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Traverse has a little more horsepower than the Kia Sorento.

Utility
The Chevrolet Traverse offers greater seating capacity than the Kia Sorento, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

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