Kia is changing its tune of the future with its Plan S, which is set to bring a new range of all-electric models to the lineup. The first out of the gates is the 2022 Kia EV6, an entirely electric crossover SUV. We’ve previously looked at how this all-new model compares to the existing electric Kia crossover – the Kia Niro EV – but now we are looking at how the EV6 stacks up against another all-new model option from Kia – the 2021 Kia Sorento Hybrid.
The 2021 model year brought us the very first hybrid Sorento model and drivers around Tampa Bay have been coming to Friendly Kia to get behind the wheel of this hybrid SUV. As you plan for your next Kia, you might be wondering if you should wait for the all-electric Kia EV6 or go with the available Sorento Hybrid from Friendly Kia. See how the two compare on paper below in this head-to-head comparison guide.

The 2022 Kia EV6 is expected to hit our dealership lot early next year and this model is sure to draw attention from all across the area. The EV6 is the brand’s first model release from its Plan S and the all-electric model is coming with an exciting range of features and options.
The EV6 will be available with two different battery options for normal and long driving ranges. EV6 models are expected to offer up to 300 miles of driving range for an incredible experience around Tampa Bay, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg. The EV6 will be available in a GT trim level later in 2022 that will offer a heart-pounding 576 horsepower for an effortless performance on the road.
The 2021 Kia Sorento Hybrid is the first hybrid variant we’ve seen from the Sorento lineup. Sorento Hybrid models offer standard seating for up to 6 passengers with second-row Captain’s Chairs and a wide range of standard safety features. Drivers will enjoy the added comfort and confidence provided by the Sorento Hybrid SUV’s range of driver assistance features, including Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind Spot Collision Avoidance-Rear, Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go, and enhanced auto emergency braking.
