As Kia has continued to imbue their vehicles with quality and feature sets reminiscent of entry-luxury or even luxury models, their competition has shifted from simply the Toyotas and Hondas of the automotive world upward to the Lexuses and Acuras. The Kia Sorento is the perfect example of this upward drift for Kia. Combining an extensive list of features, class-defining capability and enough room for everybody in the family/group, the 2019 Kia Sorento is a luxury model in luxury clothes with a mass-market price tag.
Up against the 2019 Kia Sorento today is an entry-luxury model by a lesser-known manufacturer. Volvo has made a name for itself by doing things a little bit differently and prioritizing style, comfort and convenience in a way that other entry-luxury manufacturers haven’t quite grasped. For the Kia Sorento to be considered a true entry-luxury car, it’s going to have to come out ahead when compared with models like the Volvo XC60. Let’s see if it does:
2019 Kia Sorento V6
2019 Volvo XC60
|3.3L V6 (290 horsepower)||Engine (horsepower)||2.0-liter turbo (250 horsepower)|
|7 passengers||Max passenger capacity||5 passengers|
|5,000 lbs.||Max towing capacity||3,500 lbs.|
|44.1 inches/39.4 inches||Legroom (first row/second row)||41.5 inches/38.0 inches|
|73 cubic feet||Max cargo volume||63.3 cubic feet|
|10 years/100,000 miles||Engine/powertrain warranty||4 years/50,000 miles|
|Top Safety Pick +||IIHS safety designation||Not recommended by IIHS|
|$31,290||MSRP starts at||$39,800|
As you can see, beyond badge shopping, there are zero reasons to choose the Volvo XC60 over the dynamic 2019 Kia Sorento V6. If you’re after comfort, the 2019 Kia Sorento has more of it in the form of more passenger space, more interior volume and a smoother ride courtesy of the added horsepower.
In addition to its luxurious charms, however, the 2019 Kia Sorento V6 also offers added functionality in the form of more seats, higher towing capacity and an interior that can accommodate more essential adventure gear.
Perhaps the greatest luxury of all, however, isn’t wood-grain accents or a decadent touchscreen. The greatest luxury of them all is confidence. With the 2019 Kia Sorento, you’ll drive in the utmost of confidences, knowing your SUV is backed for twice as many miles or more than twice as many years as the 2019 Volvo XC60. You’ll also have the confidence that comes along with a Top Safety Pick + award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
