2019 Kia Sorento Vs. 2019 Nissan Murano

split screen comparison between 2019 Kia Sorento Vs. 2019 Nissan Murano

Slotting in between the massively-popular, entry-level compact SUV class and family-carrying full-size SUV class, the midsize crossover is the perfect vehicle for drivers who want the safety and utility of a crossover alongside the added performance and comfort of a midsize sedan. Vehicles in this class are built to offer cargo capacity and often feature more robust engines that allow quick acceleration and easier passing at highway speeds. Additionally, they tend to take the style of a compact SUV to the next level – usually built as a sort of entry-luxury vehicle that’s loaded with comfort features and technology.

The 2019 Kia Sorento is, without a doubt, Kia’s best mid-size crossover ever. With standard features like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, third-row seating and more, drivers have recognized the clear value provided by Kia’s flagship crossover model. Up against the 2019 Kia Sorento, is Nissan’s midsize crossover, the Nissan Murano. Let’s see who comes out on top!

The 2019 Kia Sorento - Incomparable in its Class

Comparing the 2019 Nissan Murano to the 2019 Kia Sorento feels a lot like déjà vu. It’s not uncommon, after all, for the 2019 Kia Sorento to prove to be a stronger option and do so with a starting price that is over $10,000 less expensive than its rival.

Although the Nissan Murano seeks to position itself as a high-value and stylish alternative to entry-luxury SUVs, the disparity in features speaks for itself. Up against the subjectively-more-stylish 2019 Kia Sorento, the Murano fails to deliver more interior space for passengers, more interior space for cargo, better engine options or more confidence courtesy of a larger engine and extended warranty.

The Sorento’s maximum towing capacity bullies that of the Murano by over 300%.
