2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport vs. 2016 Kia Sorento

Hagerstown and Chambersburg families looking for a crossover SUV are often torn between the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the 2016 Kia Sorento. We've conducted a quick competitive comparison to see which vehicle comes out on top.

Price and Features

The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and the 2016 Kia Sorento start at roughly the same price, so it's natural for Hagerstown and Chambersburg drivers to be tricked into thinking that they're equal in terms of value.

A quick look at the available trims shows otherwise. A state-of-the-art 2016 Santa Fe Sport 2.0T comes in at $31,250, while the upper-level 2016 Sorento Limited V6 demands a minimum of $41,300. That's over $10,000 worth of difference. Additionally, the 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport offers standard features which don't come as standard in the 2016 Kia Sorento, such as:

  • Driver Selectable Steering Mode (DSSM): You'll be able to cycle between three driving modes - Comfort for easy cruising, Sport for enhanced performance, and Normal for a blend of both.
  • YES Essentials Seating Surfaces: These are family vehicles, so it makes sense to offer stain-resistant cloth as standard to help out.

Available Technology

The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport doesn't just come out ahead of the 2016 Kia Sorento when it comes to standard features, it also provides plenty of optional technology which can't be offered by the Sorento, including:

  • Hands-Free Smart Liftgate with Auto Open: The rear liftgate automatically opens when drivers stand within three feet of the vehicle for more than three seconds, with the key about their person, and a height-adjustable function lets you stop it at various heights to avoid low overhangs.
  • Infinity Logic 7 Surround Sound Audio System: With 550 watts and 12 speakers to draw upon, the Infinity Logic system brings a whole new meaning to onboard entertainment.
  • Blue Link Telematics System: Connects to your smartphone, allowing drivers to use apps, start the vehicle remotely, or learn about mechanical issues.

The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is a League Apart from the 2016 Kia Sorento
