Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Lexus UX 250h. The Kia Sorento will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus UX 250h.

Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Kia Sorento, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus UX 250h.

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 Kia Sorento will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus UX 250h.

Since the Kia Sorento is much wider than the Lexus UX 250h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Kia Sorento, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lexus UX 250h.
