Stylish and affordable, the 2017 Kia lineup offers some of the more innovative designs and technology available. The 2017 Kia Sorento is a roomy SUV with space for the family and high-tech features that add a little excitement to every drive. Today, we're taking a close look at the differences and engine specs of the 2017 Kia Sorento and 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe.
When it comes to power under the hood, the 2017 Kia Sorento has a lot to offer. The Hyundai has a larger standard engine, but at a much higher MSRP and lower fuel economy rating both in the city and on the highway. The 2017 Kia Sorento comes with a standard four-cylinder engine, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. On top of that, the Sorento achieves 21 miles per gallon in the city and 28 miles per gallon on the highway. The exterior design of the Sorento and the Santa Fe look similar in size and shape, but the Kia's exterior has more confidence because of the recently redesigned headlights and tiger nose Kia grille.
When it comes to the interior, the Kia Sorento's high-tech interior offers a comfortable and functional layout. Both vehicles offer a stylish and modern look, and have standard seating for five passengers in comfortable Yes Essentials Premium Cloth seats. Each SUV has a six-speaker audio system and standard Bluetooth compatibility for making hands-free phone calls and playing your favorite tunes.
A host of active safety features are available on the 2017 Kia Sorento, giving you the option of adding extra confidence to the daily drive. Keeping the driver and passengers safe is the number one job of these features, but they give you the added benefit of easier driving. With features like a rear view camera and rear cross-traffic, you'll be driving in reverse with fewer worries than ever before.
