As both Kia’s largest current crossover/SUV and a high-value, rugged family-hauler, the Kia Sorento sees competition from both smaller crossovers that wind up costing about the same and larger SUVs that can tow the same but wind up costing more on the sticker and at the pump. It’s this unique slot between compact crossovers and full-size crossovers/SUVs that has made the Sorento such an alluring option for individuals and families who want power and interior space but also solid handling and fuel economy.

Today, we’re matching up the Kia Sorento with the second category of competitors it faces. The Dodge Durango is a full-size, body-on-frame SUV that is built like a truck. Both vehicles aim to provide comfortable and convenient transportation inside and enough towing power to haul a camper, boat or recreational vehicle behind. Let’s see how they measure up:

Kia Sorento Comes Out On Top Again!

The Kia Sorento has a track record of besting some of the biggest and most storied names in the game. It’s a mid-size crossover with the interior space and spirit of a full-size SUV. It can tow up to 5,000 lbs., has over 70 cubic feet of cargo space, standard active safety features and an incredible base rating of 25 combined MPG.

It’s no wonder that the 2019 Kia Sorento has earned both the top safety designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and is part of Kia’s fourth year in a row coming in first place for mass-market brands in the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study.
