Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Edge offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Kia Sorento, with comparable head- and legroom. The Ford Edge offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Sorento, 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 Ford Edge 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). The Ford Edge is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Sorento. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Edge will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Kia Sorento.

Dimensions
The Ford Edge is a little wider than the Kia Sorento, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Ford Edge takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Sorento.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Ford Edge for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Edge has a little less horsepower than the Kia Sorento.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Edge doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia Sorento.

Utility
The Ford Edge has less seating than the Kia Sorento, making the Kia Sorento the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Ford Edge as you will in the Kia Sorento.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Edge is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sorento.
