2019 Kia Sorento vs. 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe: Comparison of Specs & Features

specs features trim price 2020 kia sorento vs 2020 hyundai santa fe

When looking for a mid-size SUV few can take on the ’19 Kia Sorento. The combination of practical cost, excellent appearance, technology, and warranty are difficult to defeat, but the new Hyundai Santa Fe provides the most effective challenge to date. The Sorento and Santa Fe were the initial SUVs from both Kia and Hyundai and they remain incredibly prominent with today’s purchasers. While the Santa Fe is brand new for 2020, the Sorento continues on with a moderate refresh as the car manufacturer waits on a brand-new Sorento in the next year, approximately. So, can the all-new Hyundai Santa Fe defeat the rejuvenated Sorento? Let’s find out.

Performance Highlights

You might not know it, but Hyundai Motor Group is the corporate owners of Kia Motors. So, it would make good sense that the two automobiles would share a number of the same parts, the principal of which is the base engine. This engine is a 2.4L 4-cylinder that produces 185hp and 178 lb-ft of torque. The Santa Fe and Sorento both get about 29mpg on the highway with the base engine, in the Front-Wheel Drive arrangement. The optional engine is where the Sorento takes the lead from the Santa Fe. The Sorento offers a 3.3 L V6 engine that generates 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. At the same time, the Santa Fe makes do with a 2.0 L Turbo 4-cylinder generating 235 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The bigger, more powerful engine seals the win, and the Sorento is the victor in performance.


The brand-new Kia Sorento is not just your basic SUV; it’s been made to offer ideal flexibility. The tough yet fine-tuned outside uses available LED lights, standard 17-inch wheels, and an optional Smart Power Liftgate. The Santa Fe, on the other hand, joins a pattern of SUV design that presses the headlamps down in the front fascia. It looks far better than a lot of cars however it’s still a design that isn’t for everybody. Despite being almost the same size (in and out) the Santa Fe only has seating for 5 yet the Sorento comes standard with 3rd-row seats. When thinking about that both SUVs can be had with heated/ventilated front seats, leather seats, and a color multi-information screen the capacity to transport even more individuals is a clear benefit for the Sorento.


This is the one area where the Santa Fe apparently has the edge on the Sorento. Like lots of new cars, the Santa Fe benefits from safety tech that either cost more or aren’t even offered on the Sorento. For instance, every Santa Fe comes with a Rear Occupant Alert, Lane Keeping Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance (with Pedestrian Detection), and Driver Attention Warning. The other hand is that you are able to obtain the Sorento without every one of the ‘nanny’ technology that is bloating some brand-new cars and trucks and their prices. Considering that both SUVs can be purchased with 8-inch touchscreen displays, Navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and a Surround View Monitor it comes down to whether you desire the nanny technology on your SUV.

Chris was very customer friendly and took care of making sure that all of my questions were answered. He even gave me a great deal! The other guy at the counter (didn’t get his name) brought my car and even turned on the AC because it was so hot.
