2017 Kia Sorento vs. 2017 Nissan Murano Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Nissan Murano requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia Sorento, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Nissan Murano. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Kia Sorento will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Nissan Murano.

Dimensions
The Kia Sorento is a little narrower than the Nissan Murano, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Kia Sorento is slightly shorter than the Nissan Murano, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Kia Sorento transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Murano.

Handling
The Kia Sorento has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Murano, 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 Nissan Murano for pulling heavy loads. The Kia Sorento has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Murano.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Kia Sorento and the Nissan Murano. The Kia Sorento has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Nissan Murano.

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