2019 Kia Sorento vs. 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe

Drivers from Bentonville to Siloam Springs have been quick to fall for the 2019 Kia Sorento, but you don’t have to take our word for it when we say this Kia SUV is one of a kind. Get a sense of its advantages by comparing the Kia Sorento vs. Hyundai Santa Fe today.

Performance and Towing: Sorento vs. Santa Fe

Both the 2019 Kia Sorento and the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe come standard with a 2.4-liter inline-4 cylinder engine with a total output of 185 hp, but this similarity quickly changes for those who decide to upgrade. The most powerful engine you can access in the Santa Fe offers just 235 hp. Those who choose the Sorento will have access to a more impressive engine with 290 hp.

What’s more, the Kia Sorento towing capacity gives it another major advantage over its competitor from Hyundai. The Santa Fe offers a maximum towing capacity of just 1,262 pounds, while the Sorento can tow up to 5,000 when properly equipped.
