2018 Kia Sorento vs Jeep Grand Cherokee

Mid-size crossovers like the 2018 Kia Sorento and Jeep Grand Cherokee offer a wide range of features, from family-friendly comfort to impressive towing utility. Which of these models is right for you and your busy family? Our comparison guide is here to help. Keep reading to find out how these two crossovers stack up.

Family-Friendliest Cabin: 2018 Kia Sorento

The Sorento offers impressive comfort and versatility. It's bigger than the typical five-passenger SUV, offering an optional third row and expanding passenger capacity to seven. The Sorento is perfect for growing families, with generous head- and legroom in every row. It's also got a wide range of luxury features, so you can spend your time on the road in style with leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel if you so desire.

Still, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a close second. It may only have space for up to five passengers, but it makes the most of that space with impressive seat comfort and support. If you've got money to spend on one of the higher trim models, the Grand Cherokee will also provide impressive luxury, such as premium Harman Kardon audio or full-leather upholstery.

Smartest Tech Lineup: It's a Tie!

Both models impress with their infotainment technology. The 2018 Kia Sorento features the UVO system, which includes an 8-inch touchscreen and intuitive, responsive voice controls. When you're stuck in traffic, you can alter infotainment settings without looking away from the road. We also like Jeep's Uconnect technology, which responds to your touch without any hesitation. Both systems feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. This technology displays smartphone apps on your central touchscreen, eliminating the urge to look down at your beeping device.


Most in Utility: 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Thanks to its excellent towing and off-roading capabilities, the Jeep Grand Cherokee takes the lead here. With the V8 engine and two-wheel drive, this mid-size SUV tows max loads of 7,400 pounds. That's more than enough power to move a big boat or a horse trailer. The Grand Cherokee also leads the segment in off-road capabilities. With a range of four-wheel drive options available, you can tailor your model to suit your need for adventure.

The Kia Sorento also suits a wide range of towing needs. Depending on powertrain, the Sorento can tow max loads of 2,000 or 5,000 pounds. That's more than enough utility to get a small boat to the beach. However, the Sorento doesn't offer four-wheel drive. On the other hand, all-wheel drive is optional, helping you down light trails with increased traction.

Safest SUV: 2018 Kia Sorento

For the most in passenger protection, choose the Sorento. This family-friendly crossover earned impressive crash-test scores, including a five-star rating for overall protection from the government. We also like the Sorento's collision mitigation system. When it detects an oncoming accident, the automatic emergency braking feature kicks in to mitigate damages.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee also offers high-tech aids to help you avoid danger. As with the Sorento, you can add blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert for maximum safety on the highway. However, in government crash tests, the Grand Cherokee only landed four out of five stars for overall safety.

When you stop by our friendly dealership and test-drive the 2018 Kia Sorento, we think you'll agree that it's the best choice. The 2018 Kia Sorento is the overall favorite for passenger space and modern safety. It's also got every tech feature you could want, keeping you connected with minimal distraction from traffic. And it offers impressive utility, giving you the power to tow a boat or a pair of Jet Skis to your favorite watering hole.
