Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Edge than in the Kia Sorento, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Kia Sorento and the Ford Edge.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sorento as you will with the Ford Edge, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Kia Sorento will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Edge. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Kia Sorento carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Edge.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Sorento is much slimmer than the Ford Edge, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Kia Sorento takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford Edge.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Kia Sorento doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Edge.

Handling
The Kia Sorento has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Edge, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Ford Edge for pulling heavy loads. The Kia Sorento has a little more horsepower than the Ford Edge.

Utility
The Kia Sorento offers greater seating capacity than the Ford Edge, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Kia Sorento as you will in the Ford Edge.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Sorento than that of the Ford Edge.
