2015 Kia Sorento vs. 2015 Toyota Venza Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Toyota Venza 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). Whether you pick the Kia Sorento or the Toyota Venza, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Toyota Venza have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Kia Sorento is a little narrower than the Toyota Venza, 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 Toyota Venza, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Kia Sorento does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Venza.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Toyota Venza for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Sorento greatly out-muscles the Toyota Venza.

Utility
The Kia Sorento offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota Venza, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Kia Sorento as you will in the Toyota Venza.

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