Car-shopping typically begins with intense excitement that soon morphs into nail-biting indecision. This is because the automotive industry features tons of vehicles with a broad spectrum of sizes, colors, features, capabilities, styles and so forth. It gets difficult to make your decision and we get it. That’s why today we’re going to explore how the 2019 KIA Sorento stands up against its friendly competition - The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe. To keep things completely fair, we will be using the base models of these two vehicles for our comparisons.

The 2019 KIA Sorento and 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe nearly mirror each other in several ways. However, as you can see in the table above, the Sorento gives the Santa Fe a run for its money when it comes to interior aspects. Not only does the 2019 Sorento seat 2 more passengers than the 2019 Santa Fe with its additional third-row seating, but it also features Dual Illuminated Vanity Mirrors and an Auto-dimming Rearview Mirror, which are not available as standard equipment in the 2019 Santa Fe. If you find yourself often worried about not having enough room for your passengers, the 2019 KIA Sorento may be the better vehicle for you.
It’s undeniable that cars are monumental investments. Many families save for years before upgrading or purchasing a new car to call their home on the road. Naturally, when we invest a lot of ourselves into something, we want to keep that thing safe. Well, being that the 2019 KIA Sorento comes equipped with an engine immobilizer, theft of your vehicle is one less thing you have to worry about.

This is true for the 2019 KIA Sorento in all of its trim levels, but this is one feature the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe base model lacks.
