There is a lot in common between the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe and the 2021 Kia Sorento. They each offer the same engine options, come with many of the same driver-assistive safety features, and have available cabin amenities to provide a comfortable ride around the Burleson, Fort Worth, and Benbrook, areas.
With so many similarities, our Hiley Hyundai of Burleson team wants to help you figure out just which SUV is more suited to your commuting needs. So, we’ve taken a deeper dive into the specs and features of the Hyundai Santa Fe vs. Kia Sorento—and shared our discoveries with you below!
With the Hyundai Santa Fe, you and your passengers will actually have more space to spread out and get comfortable. Its cabin comes with 111.5 cubic feet of passenger volume. That includes the 41.2 inches of headroom and 44.1 inches of legroom it has up front.
You can also enjoy more upscale comfort inside the Hyundai Santa Fe. It offers available premium Nappa leather seating, as well as quilted leather door panels to add a luxurious look and feel to the SUV.
The Kia Sorento comes with 105.3 cubic feet of passenger volume. Its front row, in particular, has 40.3 inches of headroom and 41.4 inches of legroom. While it offers leather seating, it doesn’t come with the same level of luxury as the Nappa leather seating and door panels the Santa Fe offers.
Each SUV comes with an 8-inch touchscreen that you can wirelessly pair your phone to through Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. That way, you can use various apps as you drive, put on any of your playlists, and respond to messages or make calls.
When listening to your favorite songs, let the whole car jam along with the premium 12-speaker audio system available in each vehicle. Although, when the kids are napping, only the 2021 Santa Fe has Rear Seat Quiet Mode that lets you mute the rear speakers while still enjoying your entertainment up front.
The Hyundai Santa Fe is the only SUV of the two that offers an available Heads-up Display. With this, you can view your navigation, see the speed you are driving at, and get safety alerts right on your windshield. That way, you stay informed while also keeping your eyes on the road ahead.
From Lane Keeping Assist to Driver Attention Warning, both SUVs come with many safety systems that help you stay alert and provide more confidence as you drive. They both come with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, which can help keep you alert and away from any potential frontal collisions.
While this system can detect both cars and pedestrians in your path while driving the Sorento, the Hyundai Santa Fe can also alert you of any cyclists ahead. Plus, its standard Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist also features Junction Turning Detection. That way, if a car is turning in front of your path at an intersection, this system will be able to alert you immediately.
Only the 2021 Santa Fe comes with Smart Cruise Control. While maintaining your desired speed on the highway, this system can also automatically slow down the vehicle to keep you at a safe distance from the car in front of you.
While they share a lot in common—from their towing capacity to infotainment system—the 2021 Hyundai Santa Fe offers a little more when it comes to your comfort, safety, and overall convenience.
