2015 Kia Sorento vs. 2014 Land Rover LR2 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Land Rover LR2. The Kia Sorento offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Land Rover LR2, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sorento as you will with the Land Rover LR2, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Kia Sorento will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Land Rover LR2. 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 Land Rover LR2 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Kia Sorento is a little narrower than the Land Rover LR2, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Land Rover LR2.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Kia Sorento and the Land Rover LR2 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Kia Sorento has a smaller turning radius than the Land Rover LR2, 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 Land Rover LR2 for pulling heavy loads. The Kia Sorento has a little more horsepower than the Land Rover LR2.

Utility
The Kia Sorento offers greater seating capacity than the Land Rover LR2, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Kia Sorento has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Land Rover LR2.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Sorento than that of the Land Rover LR2.
