2016 Kia Sorento vs. 2016 Dodge Durango Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia Sorento offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Dodge Durango, 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 Dodge Durango.

Convenience
With the Dodge Durango, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Sorento, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Kia Sorento will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Dodge Durango. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Kia Sorento carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Durango.

Dimensions
The Kia Sorento is a little narrower than the Dodge Durango, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Kia Sorento, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Durango.

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

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Kia Sorento and the Dodge Durango. The Kia Sorento has less cargo space than the Dodge Durango, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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