2019 Kia Sorento vs 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

2019 Kia Sorento vs 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

Previously, we've discussed the 2019 Kia Sorento SUV on its own. However, examining the specs and features of this new 2019 Kia SUV doesn't exactly test them against the market. To do that, we need a competitor. In this way, we can see how the updates of the 2019 Kia Sorento compare to other SUVs on and determine whether or not the changes are significant enough to elevate its place within the automotive market. Therefore, today, our matchup is the 2019 Kia Sorento vs the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan.

Although not as recent, the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan also underwent a redesign to its build. The 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan seated 5, which would make it a poor comparison, size-wise, against the 7-passenger seating of the Sorento. However, its 2018 model stretched and reworked its size and interior organization, creating the 2018 VW Tiguan that seats 7. Therefore, the 2018 Tiguan presents itself as a great matchup.
