HOW MANY PASSENGERS FIT INSIDE THESE SUVS?
When you first get a glance at the interior of these two models, you'll notice one big difference. The 2019 Sorento comes with three rows of seating while the Ford Edge has just two. With the Kia Sorento, you'll be able to fit two additional passengers with its seven seats. The Edge can seat only five people.
If you need that third row to fit more family, friends, or carpool partners, the Kia Sorento model's 154.2 cubic feet of passenger volume will be more useful than the 113.9 cubic feet of passenger volume the Ford Edge comes with.
Inside both SUVs, you'll be able to keep your hands on the steering wheel while making calls and streaming music from your phone via Bluetooth®. Use even more of your smartphone's applications by connecting through Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™, which come standard in the 2019 Kia Sorento.
If you have an Android™ device, you can access Google Maps™ to get directions to your destination, send and receive text messages, and more. Apple CarPlay™ will give you a similar connection to your iPhone®. Connect it to the 7-inch touchscreen display and gain the ability to talk to Siri®.
With the time we spend in our cars commuting to work, running errands, and even going on longer road trips, having a comfortable ride is crucial. That comfort starts with the seats themselves. Both cars come standard with cloth seating, but the cloth seats in the 2019 Sorento have the YES Essentials® Fabric Treatment. This will help protect the seats in case you spill your morning coffee or the kids spill any food or drinks in the back rows.
You can opt for available leather seats in either vehicle as well. The available Premium Nappa Leather Seat Trim in the 2019 Kia Sorento adds an extra level of elegance to your ride. There are also available heated and ventilated front seats in the Edge and Sorento to keep you comfortable no matter the weather. There's also the option for available heated second-row seats in both SUVs as well to keep your other passengers warm during the winter.

You'll be able to adjust your seat to your ideal position with the available 10-way power driver's seat in the 2019 Ford Edge. Comfort is taken to another level with the available 14-way power-adjustable driver's seat in the Kia Sorento. This includes a power driver's seat cushion extender and 4-way power lumbar support, which is so comfortable you'll have a hard time getting out of your Sorento!
