2019 Hyundai Santa Fe vs 2019 Kia Sorrento SUV

Re-imagined from the pavement to its panoramic sunroof, the bold new 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe design infuses raw energy with a distinctive presence. Add all the innovative safety and technology features along with America's Best Warranty and you'll understand why the Santa Fe continues to dominate SUVs as the ultimate family-adventure vehicle.

A Safer SUV for Slidell Drivers 

All drivers will agree that having a safe vehicle is crucial for themselves and their family members. Both the Santa Fe and Sorento are well known for their safety. However, the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe safety features surpass the Sorento in both quantity and quality. To start, the Santa Fe has a standard Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist that uses rear sensors to monitor and automatically apply the brakes to prevent a rear collision. The Kia Sorento does not offer this feature on standard vehicles. The 2019 Santa Fe and 2019 Sorento both have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Santa Fe goes above and beyond with power child safety locks, which allow the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when the locks are engaged. Hyundai's new Santa Fe won the 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick+; so if safety is a must, then the new Santa Fe you can trust. 

Tech Specs

The 2019 Santa Fe and the 2019 Kia Sorento both incorporate standard safety and technology features.  Providing cutting edge technology in a standard car is Hyundai's game, and we play it well. The 2019 Santa Fe SEL/Limited/Ultimate comes equipped with Blue Link, which uses a global positioning satellite (GPS) receiver and a cellular system to remotely unlock your doors if you lock your keys in, help track down your vehicle if it's stolen or send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy. While Kia does offer a similar feature, they do not provide it as a standard feature. On the dashboard, the new Santa Fe offers a 7-inch pristine touch screen, which provides rear-view, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay; along with basic radio and GPS. Safety is of the upmost importance which is why the new Santa Fe offers automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, driver attention monitoring, adaptive cruise control with full stop-and-go capability, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, rear cross traffic alert, automatic high-beam headlights, and safe exit assist. If you choose to go with the 2019 Santa Fe Ultimate, expect Hyundai's standard heads-up display, which projects speed and other key instrumentation readouts in front of your line of sight, allowing you to view information without diverting your eyes from the road. Although the 2019 Kia Sorento offers basic features similar to our new 2019 Santa Fe, they couldn't quite keep up with our advanced technological specialties that we offer in our standard vehicles.

Speed & Efficiency

The new 2019 Santa Fe and 2019 Kia Sorento both offer a smooth gas efficient ride, however, Hyundai's' 2019 Santa Fe goes above the rest to provide you with an excellent driving experience. The Santa Fe 2.0T's standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. produces 8 lbs.-ft. more torque than the Sorento's optional 3.3 DOHC V6. On the EPA test cycle the Santa Fe AWD with its standard engine gets better highway fuel mileage than the Sorento AWD 4 cyl.
