2015 Kia Sorento vs. 2014 Dodge Journey Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Dodge Journey. The Dodge Journey offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Sorento, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Dodge Journey, 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). The Kia Sorento will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Dodge Journey, which has a much lower 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 Kia Sorento carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Journey.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Sorento is much wider than the Dodge Journey, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Kia Sorento is slightly shorter than the Dodge Journey, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

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

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 Journey. The Kia Sorento has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Dodge Journey.

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