If you already know you want a Kia SUV, you still need to decide which one you are going to get. So, here are two of the more popular SUVs that Kia has; the 2019 Kia Sorento and the 2019 Kia Sportage. Let’s see how they differ from each other.

First off, we’ll be looking at the specs and features of the lowest trims of each vehicle, which means the L trim for the Kia Sorento, and the LX for the Sportage. Many SUV shoppers look at some pretty specific things to be in their future vehicle, and among these are things like power, seating capacity, space, and fuel economy. So, that is what we are going to be looking at for the Sorento and the Sportage.

11.3 cu. ft. Cargo Space 30.7 cu. ft.

Advantages of the Sorento

We hesitate to call it an ‘advantage’, because each vehicle suits someone’s lifestyle more than the other. So, if you were looking for power, you may feel more inclined to go with the Sorento, but if you were looking for fuel efficiency, then the Sportage is probably your best bet. If seating capacity matters more, then the Sorento can seat 7, but if you don’t need that many seats and are more interested in the space behind the last row, then the Sportage has 30.7 cubic feet, compared to the 11.3 cu. ft. of the Sorento.

So, it really depends on what you are looking for in a vehicle to determine what Kia SUV is best suited for you. Hopefully, this has helped you reach a decision!
