Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Toyota Venza. 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 Toyota Venza.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sorento as you will with the Toyota Venza, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Kia Sorento will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Venza. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Kia Sorento will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Venza.

Dimensions
The Kia Sorento is a little wider than the Toyota Venza, 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 Kia Sorento takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Venza.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Kia Sorento does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Venza.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Sorento greatly out-muscles the Toyota Venza.

Utility
The Kia Sorento offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota Venza, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Kia Sorento, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Venza.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Sorento than that of the Toyota Venza.
