Now is the perfect time to shop if you’re on the market for a mid-size SUV. You can shop Drive Taylor online for the perfect model for yourself. The dealership serving Boardman Youngstown Akron Canton has a huge selection of models in the size that you want and desire. We feel that the Kia Sorento and the Hyundai Santa Fe are two amazing options from which you may choose. Both vehicles are in the top five of their category on the US News website. We want to give you a quick comparison of both models so that you can see what your options entail. Read through the brief description and then shop online for the winner.
We’ll start by comparing some of the performance features of each vehicle. Both models tied in the category of fuel efficiency. They both can get up to 22 miles per gallon in the city and up to 29 miles per gallon on the highway. A significant difference shows up when you look at the motor and horsepower options. The Kia Sorento’s base model motor can put out 185 horsepower, and its more powerful options can go all the way up to 290 horsepower. The Hyundai Santa Fe matched horsepower on the base level, but it got blown away on the upgraded models. The most horsepower that one can get from a Santa Fe is 235. That’s a bit underwhelming in the comparison, so we’ll have to give this round to the Kia Sorento.
The next area we’ll cover is the interior. The KIA Sorento is capable of seating up to seven passengers in its spacious inside. The Hyundai Santa Fe is only capable of seating five. Therefore, the Sorento is the better choice for you if you’re someone who has a large family. Additional interior features that the Sorento has include features such as Back-Up Camera, Cruise Control, Steering Wheel Controls, Keyless Entry and Heated Mirrors. You also have the option to get Remote Engine Start and a Universal Garage Door Opener. The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe has several options such as Power Steering, Power Door Locks and Power Mirrors. However, we didn’t see anything that would blow away the competition. Therefore, we are giving the win to the Sorento one more time.
Both of these models have received recognition and accolades for some of their attributes. The Kia Sorento won an award for the best three-row SUV for the money. The Hyundai Santa Fe received an award for being the best two-row SUV for the money. In this case, the winner is discretionary. As a consumer, you may choose the Santa Fe if you only need a two-row SUV. However, the Sorento should be your choice if you need three rows of comfort and convenience. We’re going to give this round to the Sorento because we feel that it has more to offer you.
Consumer reviews are very important aspects of choosing a vehicle that’s right for you. Consumers were pleased with many aspects of the Sorento. They raved about its premium cabin as well as its comfortable ride and affordability. The manufacturer accomplished what it set out to do by creating something wallet-friendly and convenient. Shoppers weren’t overly thrilled with the Santa Fe. They paid some compliments to its comfortable ride and fuel economy, but we felt that the Sorento got a greater response from the masses. Once again, we are giving the Sorento the crown on this one.
Safety features are some of the most important features that any vehicle can have. That’s why we’re proud to announce that both models had scores over nine points in that category. We are giving the Sorento the safety category because of it’s premium lineup of features. You will find safety features such as Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Control and Integrated Turn Signal Mirrors. The Santa Fe has an adequate amount of safety features, but its lineup didn’t exactly wow us. It has standard features like Child Safety Locks and Daytime Running Lights. We feel that the Sorento is the right choice for you at this time.
Now you know beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Kia Sorento is your best choice when it comes to features and benefits. You’ll do yourself a great justice if you take the time to browse the online inventory at the dealership serving Boardman Youngstown Akron Canton and pick out a Sorento model that meets your needs.
