2016 Kia Sorento vs 2016 Honda Pilot

When you're in the market for a new family vehicle, there are a lot of aspects to consider. Whether you seek the exciting and adventurous options for family trips, or you just need the space and convenience of a capable SUV, the options are almost endless. The team here at Palmen Kia of Kenosha wants to help you make the best decision possible on a new vehicle for 2016. We'll compare the 2016 Kia Sorento vs 2016 Honda Pilot to give you the benefits and differences of driving the 2016 Kia Sorento.

Redesigned and more exciting-looking than ever, the 2016 Kia Sorento offers a sporty look without sacrificing a luxury appearance. Under the hood, you have the option between a four-cylinder engine at the base trim, and all the way up to a powerful V6 engine on higher trims. For 2016, the Honda Pilot offers clean lines and a confident appearance, but the higher price and less fuel efficient engine might be enough to tip the scale in the Sorento direction.

Engine Options

The 2016 Honda Pilot's base 3.5-liter V6 engine offers 280 horsepower, while the 3.3-liter V6 option for the Kia Sorento offers 290 horsepower. The 2016 Sorento's standard engine is a less powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder that offers 189 horsepower, but gets excellent fuel economy ratings for a vehicle in its class.


Interior Features

The interior of both the Sorento and the Pilot offer standard Bluetooth, interior LCD screens, and speed-sensitive volume for 2016. High-quality cloth seating for up to 5 passengers inside the 2016 Kia Sorento is met by the much larger 8-passenger capacity of the 2016 Honda Pilot. 

Safety Features

High-tech safety features come standard on the 2016 Sorento and 2016 Pilot.
