Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Ford Bronco Sport, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Bronco Sport will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Sorento.

Convenience
With the Kia Sorento, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Bronco Sport, due to its tank size and fuel economy.
