2014 Kia Sportage vs. 2015 Kia Sorento Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Kia Sportage, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Kia Sportage and the Kia Sorento.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sportage as you will with the Kia Sorento, 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). Clearly, the Kia Sportage is a better financial choice over the Kia Sorento, when considering MSRP. 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 Sportage and the Kia Sorento have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Kia Sportage is a little narrower than the Kia Sorento, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Kia Sportage, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Sorento.

Drivetrain
The Kia Sportage has much lower torque than the Kia Sorento, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Kia Sportage for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Sportage has a lot less horsepower than the Kia Sorento.

Utility
The Kia Sportage has less seating than the Kia Sorento, making the Kia Sorento the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Kia Sportage has significantly less cargo capacity than the Kia Sorento.

Warranty
The Kia Sportage comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Sorento.
