2015 Kia Sorento vs. 2014 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Kia Sorento and 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
Since the Kia Sorento is much slimmer than the Dodge Durango, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 a smaller turning radius than the Dodge Durango, allowing you to more easily maneuver 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. The Kia Sorento has a little less horsepower than 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.
