Kia Sorento vs. Ford Edge: Dimensions

Is a Ford or Kia SUV the better choice when it comes to cargo space and seating? This is a key consideration in any mid-size SUV comparison, and you’ll note some significant differences between these two competitors. If you’re looking for something more compact, the 2-row Ford Edge may be the more sensible choice. For growing families and those looking for lots of space for groceries, sports gear, and more, the 3-row Kia Sorento is likely the better fit. See how these two SUVs size up, below:

2021 Kia Sorento Dimensions

Ford vs. Kia Safety Suites

For many Arlington families in the market for a new SUV, a comparison of safety systems is a must. On that count, both the Ford and Kia SUVs come equipped with their own safety suite: Ford Co-Pilot 360™ and Kia Drive Wise, respectively. First, we’ll take a look at what they have in common. Both systems include essential driver-assistive features like Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, High Beam Assist, and a Rear View Camera.

That said, the Kia base Sorento includes some additional features as standard that can only be accessed with a trim upgrade on the Ford Edge. These include: 

  • Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist with Pedestrian Detection
  • Rear View Monitor with Dynamic Parking Guidance
  • Driver Attention Warning with Leading Vehicle Departure Alert
