The first thing that needs to be pointed out is the difference in design between the 2020 Kia Sportage and the 2020 Kia Sorento. The Kia Sportage is a compact SUV while the Kia Sorento classifies as a midsize SUV.
The Kia Sorento's larger design accommodates a third row of seats as well as 73 total cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded down. Fit the whole family in and everything you need for your next adventure with room to spare.
As a compact SUV, the Kia Sportage seats five passengers at most, but it still offers the same roominess. This model is the perfect fit for smaller families with 41.5 inches of front-seat legroom, 38.2 inches of rear-seat legroom, and 60.1 total cubic feet of cargo space.
The larger build of the 2020 Kia Sorento makes it a bit more robust than the Kia Sportage. The Kia Sorento offers a powerful available V6 engine that bumps out 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque.
This power combined with necessary towing equipment and this model's larger frame make it possible for the Kia Sorento to tow up to 5,000 pounds. This kind of capability is better suited for big families with big adventure aspirations. Ramp up capability with an available Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive system.
The 2020 Kia Sportage, on the other hand, is ideal for those who commute and explore. With its standard engine, this model achieves an EPA-estimated 23 city / 30 highway MPG.* However, you'll be able to get your mind off the work week with an off-road adventure if you equip it with the same AWD system as the Kia Sorento.
When it comes to features, the 2020 Kia Sportage and the 2020 Kia Sorento are pretty evenly matched. After all, they do come from the same manufacturer.
The overlap between these two models begins to materialize in their identical infotainment systems. With these systems, you'll get Bluetooth®, smartphone integration, navigation, and much more. You can also use UVO link to access this system remotely to adjust cabin climate, lock and unlock doors, and more.
Additionally, both models offer an available Smart Power Tailgate™. This intelligent liftgate opens the tailgate with a swift swipe of your foot under the bumper so you don't have to set your things down in order to access the cargo area of the vehicle.
As you can see, deciding between the 2020 Kia Sportage and the 2020 Kia Sorento is not a better of which one is better, but which one is better for you. At Feldman Kia, we can help you make the right choice for your lifestyle.
