2021 Kia Sorento vs 2021 Honda Passport

The 2021 Kia Sorento is finally available at Drive Taylor. Customers are certain to make this one of our most popular models this year, and we’re happy to be serving Boardman Lancaster Hermitage with a comparison review of the 2021 Kia Sorento vs 2021 Honda Passport. Both of these models have something to offer, but it’s our opinion that the 2021 Kia Sorento just wants to win a little more than the Passport does. The Sorento’s big-look style and small-drive feel make for an SUV that feels big on the inside but drives easily on the outside. Drive Taylor feels that you’ll appreciate the Sorento more than the 2021 Honda Passport for a few good reasons.

Boardman OH - 2021 Kia Sorento's Overview

Exterior – Kia Dealership serving Boardman

The Sorento’s exterior is preferable to the Pilot’s exterior. When you look at the two side-by-side, you’ll notice that the more aggressive SUV is the Sorento. It features a larger front-end with a very prominent blacked out grille. Its sharp LED headlamps extend far into the side panels and give the appearance of flight to some people. The Sorento is also sporting a longer appearance, something that many people prefer in modern SUVs. The Passport isn’t an unattractive SUV and certainly holds its own against most modern vehicles in its class. However, it’s not the Sorento. The Sorento’s reliable good looks win every time.

Performance – 2021 Kia Sorento near Boardman

The 2021 Honda Passport only has one 280 horsepower engine to choose from, and this severely limits it to a certain audience. If you aren’t picky about your powertrain or don’t want to have the option for a lower horsepower, then the Passport would be okay. However, most people prefer to have a range of horsepowers to shop from. The Sorento features a 191 horsepower to 281 horsepower engine. It also has a slightly higher horsepower at the top end of its range. The Sorento is serving Boardman Lancaster Hermitage with the better range of the two on power. You’ll also find that the Sorento is much better to handle, especially when you’re facing those steep uphill roads.

Safety – 2021 Kia Sorento dealer

The preferred vehicle for safety is the Kia Sorento. This is because it sports Kia’s Drive Wise suite, a platform that’s intuitive and that they’re constantly upgrading with new features. This year’s model gets Blind Spot Collision Warning & Avoidance Assist, Safe Exit Assist, and Rear cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist. The model also has a really strong ISO-structure that keeps everyone in the family safe and sound behind a wall of Kia safety. The Passport features some of these same features, but it does so on late trims. If you have to pay to be safe, does your automaker really care enough? Kia has thrown in extremely advanced features on lower trims that aren’t priced through the roof. Because of this, safety is also more economical on the Kia Sorento.

Winner: 2021 Kia Sorento

The Kia Sorento is a beautiful example of just how powerful the Kia brand is. From the SynTex seat trim of the Sorento S to the Captain’s chairs of later trims, there’s always a surprise around the corner in a Sorento. It’s the family road trip SUV that family’s prefer. And with standard third row seating this year, you have a whole new reason to love the Sorento. The trim lineup looks amazing this year, with the LX, S, EX, SX, and SX Prestige all ready to serve your family. The SX Prestige has Bose premium audio, leather seating, and a 12.3 inch digital instrument cluster that’s perfect for the very careful/record keeping driver.
