2019 Kia Sorento vs. Hyundai Santa Fe

When it comes to reliable family SUVs, many Astoria drivers may find themselves choosing between the Kia Sorento vs. Hyundai Santa Fe. Both offer impressive performance features along with sleek and comfortable interiors. Check out this Kia vs. Hyundai SUV comparison to find which suits you best!

Performance and Towing Capacity

To kick off our Kia vs. Hyundai comparison, many Longview customers will surely look at both models’ engine configurations and performance specs. Despite the fact that the Sorento and Santa Fe come with standard 2.4L inline-4 cylinder engines that produce 185 hp on each base model, customers who choose the Sorento’s top engine will have 290 hp, while drivers opting for the Santa Fe’s most powerful engine will only get 235 hp. And, if you’re looking for an SUV that can handle tougher jobs or haul boats or trailers on the weekend, the Kia Sorento towing capacity reaches up to 5,000 pounds, while the Santa Fe can only tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Interior Dimensions

The Kia Sorento interior delivers almost identical dimensions found in the Hyundai Santa Fe interior, allowing for every passenger to sit comfortably with room to stretch.

Here are the 2019 Kia Sorento’s interior specs:

  • 39.5 inches of front headroom
  • 44.1 inches of front legroom
  • 59.1 inches of front shoulder room
  • 39.3 inches of second-row headroom
  • 56.4 inches of second-row hip room

  • 44.1 inches of front legroom
  • 59.1 inches of front shoulder room
  • 39.2 inches of second-row headroom
  • 56.3 inches of second-row hip room

Although first row and second-row passengers will have plenty of room inside either SUV, only the Kia Sorento has third-row seating, offering accommodations for a total of seven passengers. The Santa Fe, on the other hand, offers seating for just five.
