2015 Land Rover LR2 vs. 2016 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 Land Rover LR2, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Sorento will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Land Rover LR2.

Convenience
The Kia Sorento requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Land Rover LR2, 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 Land Rover LR2 is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Sorento.

Both the Land Rover LR2 and the Kia Sorento have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Land Rover LR2 and the Kia Sorento are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Land Rover LR2 has the same turning radius as the Kia Sorento, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
