Kia Sorento vs Kia Sportage: Which Crossover Completes You? Orr Kia of Bossier City is Here to Answer!

People consider an SUV for a variety of reasons, with some people wanting something more robust that can handle the more treacherous pathways in and around Marshall TX, while others are looking for that dependable family-friendly SUV.

Here at Orr Kia of Bossier City, we have two fantastic crossover SUVs which people have trusted for many years for these and many other reasons: the Kia Sorento and Kia Sportage. Let's take a look at the advantages both bring you, so you can decide which is worth the investment and test drive one here at Orr Kia of Bossier City! We are less than an hour outside of Mansfield and proudly serving Plane Dealing.


The base trim levels of these two SUVs run on inline four-cylinder engines with comparable power outputs, the Kia Sorento ultimately generates more power overall as its most powerful model is capable of 290 total horsepower, while the most powerful engine of the Sportage generates 240 horsepower. However, the Kia Sportage offers an advantage in performance as all of its trim levels come available with the Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive System; this feature is available on most trims of the Sorento but is absent from the base.

Interior Space

A comfortable and useful interior can mean everything to a Stonewall SUV driver, so if you are looking for the larger of these two crossovers, the Kia Sorento is your best bet as it seats up to seven passengers. However, the Kia Sportage more than makes up for this with its cargo bay area which can hold up to 30.7 cubic feet of cargo volume. The Kia Sorento features 11.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, though more is available with the seatbacks folded in.


While both of these crossovers offer a lot of the same conveniences and entertainment features, the Kia Sportage has a few advantages in this area as it offers a bit more simplicity to Greenwood or Coushatta drivers, with which one to choose. The Sportage comes available in three trims, each one offering a lot of comfort and convenience, whereas the Sorento offers six trims to choose from. As a bonus, heated front seats come available on all three trims of the Sportage.

Both of these SUVs have something for many drivers, so come test drive one at Orr Kia Bossier City, located outside Shreveport and serving Minden.
