The Sorento is presented by Kia as possessing combination of style and strength that can take you to any kind of road. Similarly, Toyota considers the top-selling Fortuner as a tough SUV that can conquer on- and off-road conditions. These two SUVs interestingly carries similar positioning, but what makes each one better than the other? Let’s further look into their features.

The Kia Sorento and Toyota Fortuner boast cozy leather-covered seats and first-class entertainment systems that are compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Of course, they also have Aux-in and Bluetooth.

What makes these two SUVs outstanding is the high level of performance, in addition to the build quality — they come, of course, from two reputable global brands.

The Toyota Fortuner’s engine is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission while the Kia Sorento uses an eight-speed automatic transmission with Shiftronic.

The Fortuner is equipped with the Toyota Safe Sense (TSS) suite of features that include a pre-collision system (PCS), lane departure alert (LDA), and adaptive cruise control (ACC). It is also equipped with an immobilizer with horn as a part of Toyota Vehicle Security System (TVSS).

Meanwhile, over 52.7% of the Kia Sorento's  body is made of advanced high strength steel (AHSS) for enhanced collision protection for the front, rear, and sides of the vehicle.
