2021 Kia Sorento vs. 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe: More Versatility, Power, and Efficiency
The 2021 Kia Sorento makes a big splash in 2021 with more family-friendly features, a refreshed design, additional technology, and two powertrains that are surprisingly efficient and powerful. With a wide choice of trims, buyers will find excellent combinations of equipment and value that leave the competition trailing in the dust.
There are many reasons why the Sorento is better than the competition. Here, we explain by comparing it with the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe.
The 2021 Kia Sorento Makes Performance Accessible
The Sorento offers two powertrains to satisfy a range of driving tastes, starting with a 2.5-litre four-cylinder that produces a cool 191 horsepower and a responsive 181 lb-ft of torque. This engine is standard on the well-equipped LX+ and LX Premium grades and offers great efficiency. You will save fuel with its 10.1 L/100 km in the city and 9.2 L/100 km on the highway consumption ratings.
The Sorento also includes a 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder in four additional trims. This fulfills the wishes of many driving enthusiasts with 281 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. Turbo owners will also be glad to know that their model is more powerful than the Santa Fe’s turbo competitor. The turbo-equipped Sorento also has better highway gas mileage at 8.4 L/100 km. The four turbo models are also a much better selection than the Santa Fe’s single-turbo model.
The 2021 Kia Sorento Offers More Versatility
The Kia Sorento is designed to accommodate many lifestyles, including those of busy and growing families. As a matter of fact, the Sorento offers a third row – an important feature the Santa Fe doesn’t have. This makes the Sorento more versatile, especially when being together is important.
The Sorento is also roomy. It accommodates up to 2,139 litres of cargo capacity behind the front seats. This surpasses the Santa Fe by nearly 100 litres and the Sorento’s capacity is still greater behind the second row than its competitor. This provides peace of mind and the Sorento will also deliver on capacity.
