2019 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2019 Kia Sorento Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Santa Fe offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Kia Sorento, with comparable head- and legroom. The Hyundai Santa Fe 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
The Hyundai Santa Fe requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia Sorento, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Santa Fe will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. Both the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Kia Sorento have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Santa Fe is about the same width as the Kia Sorento. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Santa Fe takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Sorento.

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

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe has the same turning radius as the Kia Sorento, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Santa Fe has a lot less horsepower than the Kia Sorento.

Utility
The Hyundai Santa Fe 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 Hyundai Santa Fe as you will in the Kia Sorento.

Warranty
The Hyundai Santa Fe comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Kia Sorento.
