2015 Kia Sorento vs. 2014 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 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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 Volkswagen Tiguan, 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). Whether you pick the Kia Sorento or the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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 Volkswagen Tiguan have similar Destination Charges.

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. If you go with the Kia Sorento, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with 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 a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Tiguan, 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 Volkswagen Tiguan for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Sorento greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Utility
The Kia Sorento offers greater seating capacity than the Volkswagen Tiguan, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Kia Sorento, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen Tiguan.

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