2015 Jeep Wrangler 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 Jeep Wrangler, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Wrangler 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 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. The Jeep Wrangler has significantly less cargo capacity than the Kia Sorento.

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