2015 Dodge Journey vs. 2015 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 Dodge Journey, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Dodge Journey offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Sorento, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Dodge Journey requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia Sorento, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Clearly, the Dodge Journey is a better financial choice over the Kia Sorento, when considering MSRP. 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 Journey is much higher than that for the Kia Sorento.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Journey is much slimmer than the Kia Sorento, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Dodge Journey, which is slightly longer than the Kia Sorento.

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

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Dodge Journey for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Dodge Journey 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 Journey and the Kia Sorento. The Dodge Journey 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 Dodge Journey is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sorento.
