The 2017 Kia Sorento offers more value for a lower price than the 2016 Toyota Highlander, 2016 Ford Edge and 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee. This efficient and affordable SUV offers seating for five, ample cargo room and plenty of convenience features, such as standard Satellite Radio to keep everyone onboard comfortable.

Kia Sorento is Most Affordable

The new Kia Sorento base price is significantly lower than other vehicles in the same class. With a base MSRP of only $25,400 the 2017 Kia Sorento 2.4L L FWD offers remarkable savings compared to:

– 2016 Toyota Highlander LE I4 FWD – Base Price MSRP $30,490
– 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4X2 – Base Price MSRP $29,995
– 2016 Ford Edge SE FWD – Base Price MSRP $28,700

Sorento Has Best Passenger & Cargo Room

With 146.4 cu.ft. of passenger volume the Sorento offers more breathing room than the Toyota Highlander (144.9 cu.ft.), Ford Edge (113.9 cu. ft) and Jeep Grand Cherokee (105.4 cu.ft). It also offers more cargo volume than the Highlander and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Although the Kia Sorento has a more spacious cabin and cargo area, the overall vehicle height and weight are lower and lighter than models from competing brands. The compact profile of the Sorento body structure stands at 66.3 inches, up to three inches lower than the other models. The Sorento also has a modest curb weight of 3704 lbs, far less than the Jeep Grand Cherokee at 4545 lbs, Toyota Highlander at 4134 lbs. and the Ford Edge at 3927 lbs.

Kia Sorento Is Fuel Efficient

The lighter and smaller body construction allows the new Kia Sorento to offer exceptional fuel economy. Powered by a 2.4L I4 Direct Injection engine, the Sorento delivers an estimated 21 mpg during city driving and 28 mpg on the highway. This combined fuel economy of 24 mpg is equal to the Ford Edge and better than the combined fuel economy of the Toyota Highlander and the Jeep Grand Cherokee at 22 mpg.
