Sorento vs. The Competition

Three-row SUVs are ideal for families who need extra space and seatbelts and want an alternative to a minivan. However, some models can be inconvenient for certain drivers due to their larger space requirements and hampered handling. The Kia Sorento offers an appealing solution. This seven-seat crossover straddles the line between the compact and midsize segments, providing family-friendly accommodations with city-friendly maneuverability.

Comfortable, practical, and filled with features-including standard advanced safety technologies and multiple powertrain options-the Kia Sorento is one of the most appealing crossovers available and one of the few its size with a third row. Here's a quick look at how it compares in a few key areas to a similarly sized three-row competitor, the VW Tiguan.

  • Performance: The Kia Sorento comes standard with a 191-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. If you want something more potent to power your daily drives, EX models and higher add a turbocharger, boosting output to 281 horsepower. The VW Tiguan's sole engine offering makes 184 horsepower.

  • Hybrid: The Kia Sorento is available as an efficient hybrid with 227 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 37 mpg combined (34 mpg with AWD). Or you can configure it as a 261-horsepower plug-in hybrid (79 MPGe) with an estimated 32 miles of all-electric range. The VW Tiguan isn't offered with a battery-assisted powertrain.

  • Space: Both models have 12 cubic feet of storage behind the rear seats. However, you can expand the Sorento's capacity to 38.5 cubic feet by folding the third row and up to 75.5 cubic feet by folding the second. The Tiguan has 33 and 65.3 cubic feet behind the second and first rows, respectively. The Sorento also offers considerably more headroom and legroom throughout the cabin.

  • Technology: The Kia Sorento comes standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, step up just one trim level, and you'll get a larger 10.25-inch display with advanced navigation and Natural Language Processing for intuitive voice control. The Tiguan's standard and available touchscreens are smaller, at 6.5 and 8.0 inches, respectively. You'll also get more standard safety technologies in the Sorento, including Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Following Assist, and Driver Attention Warning with Leading Vehicle Departure Alert.
