Which Midsize SUV Is Right For You?

World Car Hyundai South

If you are in the market for a new SUV, weighing your options can be challenging. World Car Hyundai South is here to help you! The family-first 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe has all the features your family needs. It stands out amongst the competition by allowing drivers to enjoy an elevated level of versatility, top-notch features, and a sleek design. Let's look into how it measures up to the competition by comparing it to the 2020 Kia Sorento.


2020 Hyundai Santa Fe:

The starting MSRP price for the base is $25,900

Starting MSRP for the highest trim level, the Limited 2.0T is $37,500

2020 Kia Sorento:

The starting MSRP is $26,690 for the baseline Sorento

MSRP for the SX, the highest trim level is $39,990

Both of these prices are a great value compared to other midsize SUVs, but the Santa Fe clearly has lower overall prices than the Sorento.

Interior Convenience and Comfort

2020 Hyundai Santa Fe:

60/40 power push-button fold down rear seats

Heads-up display

Available panoramic sunroof

Seating for 5

Standard Apple CarPlay & Android Auto

Available 8" touch screen navigation

2020 Kia Sorento:

50/50 Split-folding third-row seats

Available panoramic sunroof

Third Row Seating, seats 7

7" color display with Apply CarPlay & Android Auto

Both of these SUVs have the essential amenities every family needs. The Kia Sorento offers seating for 7, but sacrifices passenger comfort and cargo space. You can sit more comfortably with more room in the Hyundai Santa Fe, which seats five. If you are looking for a vehicle with more space, check out the Hyundai Palisade that seats up to 8.


2020 Hyundai Santa Fe:

185-horsepower 2.4L 4-cylinder engine

235-horsepower 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine on upper trim levels

2020 Kia Sorento:

185-horsepower 2.4L

290-horsepower 3.3 L DOHC 24-valve VG engine, optional on upper trim levels

These SUV's both offer high-quality performance abilities. On every trim level of the Santa Fe, All-Wheel Drive is an available upgrade. For the Sorento, All-Wheel Drive isn't available on the base trim, but is an option for the other models. The Santa Fe also has higher torque on the turbo engine, so it transmits power to its wheels more effectively than the Sorento.

Safe Exit Assist

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection

The Hyundai Santa Fe is equipped with Hyundai SmartSense, a suite of cutting-edge safety features. It is a sophisticated network that acts as an extra set of eyes on the road, so you and your family can feel more secure. The Kia Sorento has Kia Drive Wise, which includes the safety features listed above. Both SUVs are equipped with phenomenal safety features. The Santa Fe offers more features overall, and offers more features that are standard on the base model. Meaning, in the Kia Sorento if you want similar features you will have to pay more to upgrade them.

The competition is fierce in the midsize SUV market, but it can't match the overall value of the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe. The Santa Fe offers next-generation technology, the space and comforts your family needs, and exceptional performance, all at an affordable price.
