Looking for a new crossover? Kia has a few models that you should definitely get a closer look at. Both the midsize Kia Sorento and compact Kia Sportage are versatile SUVs that perform well both driving around the streets of Philadelphia and out on the highways around Langhorne and Levittown.

To help you see which model is the better option for you, our team here at Fred Beans Kia of Langhorne compared the Kia Sorento vs. Kia Sportage below. 

How Much Space Is There Inside Each Kia Vehicle?

One way to decide which model is the one for you is to see how much room there is inside each Kia vehicle. The Sportage has two rows of seating that can fit up to five passengers. With the larger Sorento, you'll get an additional row of seating. This means seven passengers can fit inside the Kia Sorento, giving you more room if you have a larger family or carpool to school or practice.

Along with more space for passengers, the Kia Sorento also has a tremendous amount of room for cargo. You can fit plenty of gear in the back of the Sportage with up to 60.1 cubic feet of cargo volume. When it comes to hauling bigger items, the Sorento will give you a maximum of 73 cubic feet of volume to accommodate larger or longer cargo.

Fuel Economy of the Sportage vs Sorento

While both SUVs do a good job at conserving fuel when driving around the city or out on the open highways, the Kia Sportage will get a little bit more out of each gallon of gas. The Sorento gets 22 city/29 highway MPG.* With the Kia Sportage, you'll have slightly better fuel economy with 23 city/30 highway MPG.**

Features You'll Gain with Both Models

Since they are both Kia vehicles, each of these SUVs also comes with a range of technologies. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ will let you connect to your smartphone and make calls or send text messages hands-free while driving either of these models. Both features let you also access a variety of other applications while driving, like your maps for navigation and personalized music playlists.

Both the Sportage and Sorento also have advanced safety features that can give you more confidence while driving. Get the available Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go to let either Kia SUV help you safely travel with the flow of traffic. They also can each help you know when it's clear to change lanes with the available Blind-Spot Collision Warning.
