2020 Kia Telluride vs 2019 Kia Sorento

Comparing The Two Kia SUVs

For over a decade, the Kia Sorento has been giving Orlando drivers flexibility and power on any road. From traveling down I-4 to exploring downtown Sanford, the Sorento has been a standard in many homes. But now, new for 2020, Kia has introduced the Kia Telluride. A new mid-size SUV that’s rivaling even the most luxurious of vehicles.

With the Telluride’s four different driving modes – including Comfort, Eco, Sport and Smart – and exclusive driver-assist features, it would seem that there is a new Kia SUV king in town. But which Kia SUV is the right fit for you? Let’s compare the specs, performance, and safety features of the 2019 Kia Sorento against the up and coming 2020 Kia Telluride.

Differences Between The Telluride & Sorento

Built to seat up to 8 passengers, the new 2020 Kia Telluride is a spacious SUV that is quickly making a name for its self with its large cargo hold and beautiful cabin space. In fact, the new Telluride has almost ten cubic feet more cargo space than the Sorento.

While the Telluride might have the more passenger and cargo space, the Sorento is still ready to go the distance. If you’re an Orlando driver looking to enjoy fewer stops at the gas pump, then the 2019 Kia Sorento is the SUV for you. With a better fuel economy over the Telluride, the Sorento is still the choice for SUV drivers looking the superior gas life.

But for those drivers looking to tow their favorite weekend toys, the Telluride is the model for you. With a standard maximum trailering capacity reaching 5,000-pounds, the Telluride is the superior model when it comes to towing. However, the Kia Sorento’s 2,000-pound capability is still better than most other model options. It should also be noted that both automobiles come with an available Trailer Hitch Receiver.
