On the hunt for a capable, reliable SUV?

But which vehicle is better suited for you? We at Hyundai of Abington created this informative comparison of the 2020 Santa Fe vs. the Kia Sorento to help you make your final decision. 

Willow Grove, Abington, and Lower Southampton Township-area car shoppers can learn more about the different amenities in each of these impressive rides right here!

Entertainment for Your Ride

Do you plan on taking your SUV out for a thrilling road trip? Whether you journey miles away or stay close to home, you'll want your next car to feature plenty of entertainment options to keep you engaged. 

The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe and the 2020 Kia Sorento both offer available 8-inch touchscreen infotainment systems with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. Pair your compatible smartphone to these displays to gain access to your music library along with some of your most utilized applications.

Sound Systems

Your music will sound crystal-clear in both SUVs thanks to the available sound systems with Clari-Fi™ Music Restoration Technology in the 2020 Kia Sorento and the Hyundai Santa Fe. This technology restores what's lost through digital compression, so you can experience the true sound of your favorite beats. 

Ultimately, however, the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe steals the show with its optional 12-speaker Infinity® Premium Audio system. By comparison, the available system in the Kia Sorento maxes out at 10 speakers. 

Room to Stretch Out & Convenient Cargo Space

When you're jetting down the highway, enjoying your tunes, you'll want plenty of room for both you and your passengers. The Hyundai Santa Fe and the Kia Sorento both offer 44.1 inches of legroom up front for you and your copilot.

When it comes to front headroom, however, the Hyundai Santa Fe provides 41.2 inches, while the Kia Sorento only offers 39.5 inches. 

Hands-Free Smart Liftgate

When it comes to cargo space, these vehicles both offer plenty of room for camping gear or luggage. If you find yourself with your arms full, the available hands-free smart liftgate in the Hyundai Santa Fe has you covered. When it senses your key fob, it opens automatically for your convenience. 

The Kia Sorento offers a similar feature but with just one opening speed, while the Santa Fe has two selectable modes to make loading up even quicker.

Cruise Around Safely & Securely

When it comes to enhanced safety features, these SUVs are almost evenly matched. The Santa Fe makes safety a top priority with standard driver-assist technologies, such as Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection⁠, and Lane Keeping Assist⁠.

These driver-assist features help boost your awareness and expand your senses by providing real-time audio and visual alerts as well as braking intervention or steering corrections if necessary.

While the Kia Sorento does have similar safety features, they don't come standard like they do in the 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe. Drivers looking for a more advanced standard safety system will find just that in the Hyundai Santa Fe. 

Safe Exit Assist  

The 2020 Hyundai Santa Fe also offers a safety feature not available on the Kia Sorento. Available in the Santa Fe, Safe Exit Assist lets your passengers know when it's safe for them to exit the vehicle onto a busy road. In contrast, the Kia Sorento doesn't offer a comparable safety feature.
