2018 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2019 Kia Sorento Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Jeep Wrangler than the Kia Sorento. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Wrangler and the Kia Sorento.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Wrangler 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). Clearly, the Jeep Wrangler 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 Jeep Wrangler is much higher than that for the Kia Sorento.

Dimensions
The Jeep Wrangler is about the same width as the Kia Sorento. If you go with the Jeep Wrangler, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Sorento.

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

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler has a smaller turning radius than the Kia Sorento, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Jeep Wrangler for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jeep Wrangler and the Kia Sorento.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Jeep Wrangler seats a lot fewer people than the Kia Sorento.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Wrangler is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sorento.
