Dare to Compare the 2016 Kia Sorento vs. 2016 Ford Edge
The Ford Edge is one of the most popular SUVs on the market, but is its reputation all it’s cracked up to be? The Kia Sorento is an SUV in the same segment packed with plenty of value and great features. Plus, it’s more affordable. If you need help deciding between the Edge and the Sorento, say no more.
The Kia Sorento is more affordable than the Edge, with a cost of $25,100 in comparison to the Edge’s $28,700 price tag. This low starting price tag means you can get more bang for your buck if you choose the Sorento.
Legroom for you and your passengers is everything in an SUV. While you’d think the Edge would be more spacious due to its longer length, the Sorento has a few inches’ advantage when it comes to front leg and hip room. The real winner is the Kia Sorento’s 146 cubic feet of passenger volume in comparison to the Edge’s 114 cubic feet.
If you’re looking to tow, the Sorento has a higher max towing capacity with 2,000 pounds over the Ford Edge’s 1,500-lb limit.
It’s hard to fight Kia’s warranty. The Ford Edge has a decent warranty with 60,000 miles or 60 months of a powertrain warranty and a standard warranty that covers 36 months or 36,000 miles, but the Kia Sorento comes with a basic 60-month/60,000-mile warranty and a whopping 120-month/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
It’s obvious that the clear winner here is the Sorento, with a better price, more space, better towing, and a warranty that will cover your vehicle for a longer period of time.
