2017 Kia Sorento vs Toyota Highlander vs Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Edge
When you’re searching for the best crossover SUV, you’ll find yourself faced with some tough choices. However, at Carriage Kia we’re totally confident in saying that the 2017 Kia Sorento is the best one out there. Here’s why.
It starts with price. The Sorento is significantly less expensive than its competitors. With an MSRP of $25,600*, it beats the next lowest option, the 2017 Ford Edge which runs for $28,950, where options like the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Toyota Highlander have price tags that exceed $30,000.
For that lower price, you might think that the Kia Sorento would be lacking in things like fuel economy or standard features. However, even with the affordable price tag, the Kia Sorento has a long list of standard features, like satellite radio, that are either extra cost or not available at all in the competitors.
Things like manual air conditioning—which isn’t available in the Jeep Grand Cherokee—helps to make passengers comfortable, as does the ample passenger space. A versatile and roomy interior is one of the things people look for in a crossover, and at 146.4 cu.ft. the 2017 Kia Sorento offers the most passenger volume. The Toyota Highlander is a close second with 144.9 cubic feet, yet the Sorento is also shorter in height—the shortest of all four, in fact—making it smaller and more maneuverable when driving.
There are so many other things that make the 2017 Kia Sorento stand out. This is just the tip of the iceberg. To learn more about our favorite crossover and how it stands up to the competition, visit Carriage Kia today.
