2017 Dodge Journey vs. 2017 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 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 Journey.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Journey 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 Dodge Journey 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. 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 similar torque, the Dodge Journey and the Kia Sorento are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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. The Dodge Journey has a little more horsepower than the Kia Sorento.

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