2016 Kia Sorento Vs. 2016 Toyota Highlander Vs. 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe
With car buyers' rush to check out the more compact crossover models, it might seem like mid-size SUVs like the 2016 Kia Sorento, the 2016 Toyota Highlander and the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe have been lost in the shuffle. But that just isn't possible - they tower over much of the automotive industry, and when you see them on the road, you recognize one. But the nice part is if you want smooth handling and good gas mileage, these beasts will easily outperform large SUVs and trucks. So it's the best of both worlds - now we'll see which one of these three mid-size crossovers reigns supreme.
If you line up the three models side-by-side and have them race, the 2016 Kia Sorento and the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe would probably get off the blocks fastest, since they both have models available with 290 horsepower coming from a V6 engine. The 2016 Toyota Highlander has less pop under the trunk with a maximum of 270 HP. But with all that power comes responsibility, and with responsibility comes some hard choices. With that in mind, the 2016 Kia Sorento gives you the most options, with eight different model trims to pick from, everything from a base model with 185 HP and great fuel economy to a V6 model that can either go off-road or tear up the city pavement. The 2016 Highlander and the 2016 Santa Fe both only come in four model trims. And with great choice comes great comforts, like the 2016 Optima's available heated steering wheel and available heated seats - both in the front and the second row.
Kia Sorento Gets the Win - Test Drive One Today
You want to get a great value from your car, as well, and the 2016 Kia Sorento has the best fuel economy of the lot, with 21 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, beating out the 2016 Highlander's 20 city, 25 highway and the 2016 Santa Fe's 20 city, 27 highway. Now that you know you'll be pocketing all those savings from filling up less at the pump, what would you say if we told you the Sorento was the safest vehicle also? It's true. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests all models to see which are most impact-resistant and the 2016 Kia Sorento was the only one among the three to be named a Top Safety Pick for 2016.
When you also factor in the 2016 Sorento's 73.5 cubic feet of room for cargo and the ability to tow over two tons in its four V6 models (LX V6, EX V6, SX V6 and Limited V6) - 5,000 pounds - then you've got the ideal combination of size, value and strength in this award-winning midsize SUV, and we'd like nothing more than to see you in a 2016 Sorento today.
