2018 Kia Sorento vs. 2018 Chevrolet Equinox Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia Sorento offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Chevrolet Equinox, with comparable head- and legroom. The Kia Sorento will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Equinox.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sorento as you will with the Chevrolet Equinox, 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 Kia Sorento is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Equinox. 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 Kia Sorento and the Chevrolet Equinox have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Sorento is much wider than the Chevrolet Equinox, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Kia Sorento, which is slightly longer than the Chevrolet Equinox.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Sorento greatly out-muscles the Chevrolet Equinox.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Kia Sorento and the Chevrolet Equinox. The Kia Sorento has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Chevrolet Equinox.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Sorento than that of the Chevrolet Equinox.
