2017 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2017 Kia Sorento Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Santa Fe offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Kia Sorento. 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 Hyundai Santa Fe.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Santa Fe 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). The Hyundai Santa Fe 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. Both the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Kia Sorento have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe is about the same width as the Kia Sorento. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Santa Fe, which is slightly longer than the Kia Sorento.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Hyundai Santa Fe doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia Sorento.

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

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

Utility
The Hyundai Santa Fe offers greater seating capacity than the Kia Sorento, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Hyundai Santa Fe has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Kia Sorento.

Warranty
The Hyundai Santa Fe comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Sorento.
