2016 Dodge Durango vs. 2016 Kia Sorento Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Dodge Durango 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 Dodge Durango.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Dodge Durango, 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 Dodge Durango 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 Dodge Durango is much higher than that for the Kia Sorento.

Dimensions
The Dodge Durango is a little wider than the Kia Sorento, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Dodge Durango, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Kia Sorento.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Dodge Durango transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Kia Sorento.

Handling
The Dodge Durango has the same turning radius as the Kia Sorento, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Dodge Durango, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Kia Sorento. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Dodge Durango and the Kia Sorento.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Dodge Durango and the Kia Sorento. The Dodge Durango has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Kia Sorento.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Durango is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sorento.
