The Kia Sorento vs. The Competition

When you are looking for a new SUV, you are going to be looking for something that has equally high levels of space and comfort, as well as power and performance. But, the search for that perfect SUV can take you a lot of time as you hop from dealership to dealership comparing vehicles to one another. Well, we at Bill Baisey Kia want to provide you with a car-buying experience that is easy and stress-free. So, we want to save you a step and show you how our SUV, the Kia Sorento, stands up to a competitor, the Hyundai Santa Fe. For the sake of this page, we will be comparing the base models.



Cost

Cost is a crucial factor in the car-buying process so that we will start with that. When put side-by-side the 2017 Kia Sorento has a drastically lower MSRP and Invoice than the 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe. When looking at the projected five-year ownership costs, the Kia Sorento also has a lower average cost per mile, a lower average True Cost to Own, a lower projected depreciation, lower financing costs, lower fuel cost, lower insurance, and lower Maintenance costs. Clearly, there's no contest that the Kia Sorento is more budget friendly.


 

Safety

Safety-wise, the Kia Sorento stands neck-and neck with the Hyundai Santa Fe despite having a significantly lower overall cost. The standard safety features include Child Seat Anchors, Side, and Curtain Airbags, as well as stability and traction control.

 


Performance

Now, when it comes to mechanical performance, the low cost continues to shine. The Kia Sorento is packed with a 2.4-liter I4 engine which is smaller than the Hyundai Santa Fe's engine, but it provides a much better fuel economy posting an EPA-estimated Fuel Economy of 21 miles per gallon in the city and 28 miles per gallon on the highway.
