Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia Sorento offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Chevrolet Blazer, with comparable head- and legroom. The Kia Sorento will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Blazer.

Convenience

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).

With similar torque, the Kia Sorento and the Chevrolet Blazer are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.
