Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sorento as you will with the Toyota RAV4, 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). The Kia Sorento is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota RAV4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Kia Sorento and the Toyota RAV4 have similar Destination Charges.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Toyota RAV4 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Sorento greatly out-muscles the Toyota RAV4.

Utility
The Kia Sorento offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota RAV4, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Sorento than that of the Toyota RAV4.
