2017 Kia Sorento vs. 2017 Nissan Pathfinder and 2017 Honda Pilot
Do you like vehicles with the space for a whole family and solid fuel economy, but with the power to head into the hills at a moment's notice? Then you're probably looking for an SUV, and a midsize one at that, since this is the category where you can get in excess of 20 MPG and still have models that can go off-road.
We have three very popular midsize SUVs to compare so you can find the one with the features you need to rock both the morning commute and the weekend adventure, with a side-by-side of the 2017 Kia Sorento, 2017 Honda Pilot and the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder.
The 2017 Sorento has the largest number of model options, with seven available trims, and they come with V6 models that reach the heights of 290 horsepower, while the 2017 Pilot and 2017 Pathfinder top out at five trims apiece and 280 HP for the Pilot and a tad more with the 2017 Pathfinder's 284 HP. But this is just the beginning of the advantages the Sorento has over its competition.

We Have the Ultimate SUV on the Lot in Muncie IN
The 2017 Kia Sorento not only has the most versatility with its model options, it also averages a base fuel economy of 21 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, edging the 2017 Pilot's 19 and 27 and the 2017 Pathfinder's 20 and 27. But the 2017 Sorento also has a durable construction that has earned the model two consecutive IIHS Top Safety Picks, an honor which the 2017 Pilot shares but which the 2017 Pathfinder doesn't. And the 2017 Sorento won a prestigious award from U.S. News & World Report with its "Best 3-Row SUV for the Money" - yet more proof that the Sorento is a valuable and feature-filled vehicle, and also at a lower starting price than the competition. Take all of these advantages, as well as the 2017 Sorento's available UVO eServices with streaming audio, 8 GB for music and access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and you have a vehicle that will thrill your friends and family, and save you money on gas and its starting price in the process!
