2019 Kia Sorento vs. 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Volkswagen Tiguan. 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 Volkswagen Tiguan.

Convenience
The Kia Sorento requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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). The Kia Sorento is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Tiguan. 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 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Sorento is much wider than the Volkswagen Tiguan, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

Handling
The Kia Sorento has the same turning radius as the Volkswagen Tiguan, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Sorento greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Kia Sorento is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
