2020 Kia Sorento vs. 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe

When you need an advanced and affordable SUV in Orlando, it makes sense to weigh the 2020 Kia Sorento vs. 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe. At first glance, you might see some similarities, but once you move beyond the base engines and compare all they have to offer, it becomes clear why so many Winter Garden and Clermont drivers choose the Kia when comparing Sorento vs. Santa Fe.

Kia vs. Hyundai: Performance

Both the 2020 Kia Sorento and 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe offer a 185-hp 2.4L 4-cylinder engine on their base models, but if you’re looking for an energetic and powerful new SUV, you’ll want to upgrade. And on the upgraded engine, the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe falls short of the 2020 Kia Sorento.

  • The Sorento has a 3.3L V6 rated at 290 hp
  • The Santa Fe’s upgraded engine is a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder, managing just 235 hp.

Looking to put your SUV to work? A new Sorento can tow — up to 5,000 pounds, actually — while the Santa Fe maxes out at just 3,500 pounds.

Kia vs. Hyundai: Interior Dimensions

The key takeaway when weighing the Sorento interior vs. Santa Fe interior is the seating capacity: The 2020 Kia Sorento seats 7 while the Santa Fe seats just 5. But that’s not the Kia’s only advantage.

Although both vehicles offer similar interior dimensions for the first and second row, if it’s time to load up the SUV, the Kia brings more cargo volume at 73.0 cubic feet vs. 71.3 cubic feet on the Hyundai.

Whether you’re taking the kids off to college or loading up from a day of thrifting, you’ll have an easier time getting everything to fit into the Kia SUV.
