Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sorento than in the Lexus UX 250h. 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 Lexus UX 250h.

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 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lexus UX 250h.
