Harvey customers looking for a reliable midsize SUV for their family may find themselves torn between the 2019 Kia Sorento vs. the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe. While they can ultimately decide on one, we’ve broken down how these popular vehicles differ when it comes to performance and interior dimensions. Find out which is the right choice for you!


One of the first things Marrero customers assess is the performance of their vehicle. And, the 2019 Sorento not only provides great engine options but also leaves the amount of available power used up the driver. The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe also comes with the same standard 2.4L inline-4 cylinder engine as the Sorento that generates 185 hp. However, the Sorento’s strongest engine produces 290 hp, while the Santa Fe’s most powerful engine only produces 235 hp. And, when it comes to towing capacity, a properly equipped Kia Sorento can tow up to 5,000 pounds, while the Santa Fe can only tow 3,500 pounds.

Interior Dimensions

The Kia Sorento interior dimensions indicate a similar cabin space to that of the Hyundai Santa Fe where drivers and passengers alike will surely enjoy the extra room to move and store their belongings. Despite similar seating specifications, the Kia is the only one to offer third-row seating for a total of seven passengers as opposed to the Santa Fe, which only has room for five. The Sorento’s maximum cargo space similarly outdoes the Santa Fe’s.

Here are the 2019 Kia Sorento’s interior specs:

  • 154.2 cubic feet of passenger volume
  • 73 cubic feet of cargo space
  • 39.5 inches of front headroom
  • 44.1 inches of front legroom
  • 59.1 inches of front shoulder room
  • 39.3 inches of second-row headroom
  • 56.4 inches of second-row hip room

Similarly, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe offers:

  • 110.7 cubic feet of cargo space
  • 71.3 cubic feet of cargo space
  • 41.2 inches of front headroom
  • 44.1 inches of front legroom
  • 59.1 inches of front shoulder room
  • 39.2 inches of second-row headroom
  • 56.3 inches of second-row hip room
