2017 Kia Sorento vs. 2017 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 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 Journey.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sorento as you will with the Dodge Journey, 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 Dodge Journey. 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 similar torque, the Kia Sorento and the Dodge Journey are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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. The Kia Sorento has a little less horsepower than the Dodge Journey.

Utility
The Kia Sorento has less seating than the Dodge Journey, making the Dodge Journey the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. 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.
