2024 Hyundai Santa Fe vs 2024 Kia Sorento?

Families from the Windsor region in Ontario live in a great environment and need a roomy vehicle for day-to-day commutes and weekend enjoyment. It means looking for a spacious, dependable car that suits all these activities. Although many SUVs are on the market, only some meet these demands, including the 2024 Hyundai Santa Fe and the 2024 Kia Sorento.

This article examines and compares the specifications of the Hyundai Santa Fe vs. Kia Sorento.

What Trims Are Available

Let’s look at the various trims and starting MSRP* for these two models in Ontario. There are three trims available for the Santa Fe. At the entry-level, there’s the XRT, which starts from $49,731*. Then there’s the Luxury, at $52,731*, and at the top of the line is the Ultimate Calligraphy, at $56,231*.


The Sorento has five trims from which to choose. These trims are the LX at $38,975.00*, EX at $42,975.00*,  X-Line at $47,975.00*, X-Line Limited at $50,975.00*, and the X-Pro at $52,475.00*. In terms of cost, there’s little to choose between the two.

Performance is More Than Adequate


The Santa Fe has a 2.5-litre Turbocharged engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, which produces 277 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. Its maximum towing capacity is 3,500 pounds. The Sorento has two engine options, both with an eight-speed automatic transmission. There’s a 2.5-litre four-cylinder making 191 horsepower and a 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder making 281 horsepower.

These are Not Just A Mom’s Taxi

The newly designed Santa Fe is making waves in the automotive world with its retro fascia. Modern slim-line LED lighting brings boxy, rugged good looks into the 21st century. These distinctive looks elevate this SUV from simply being a bland Mom’s Taxi into a desirable car for the whole family. 


The Sorento also received some minor facelifting this year, giving it an assertive front end and a sporty look that enhances its visual appeal. The Santa Fe has a more appealing exterior design with its unique look and distinctive light clusters.

Two Spacious, Accommodating Interiors

If you need lots of space for your family, you’d want to buy one of these vehicles. These interiors prioritize space, comfort, and storage, with outstanding legroom and reconfigurable seating. 

With its boxy rear end, the roof has a minimal slope towards the rear, ensuring that the Sant Fe has lots of headroom for all the rows of seats.


The Hyundai Santa Fe has a longer wheelbase than the Sorento, and with its boxy rear end, the designers have managed to give it more cargo space—an impressive 2,267 litres. The Sorento has a more conventional roofline, reducing the headroom in the rear. The Sorento has 1,090 litres of cargo space. Santa Fe is a clear winner in terms of interior comfort and space.

Safety is Everyone’s Priority

Both manufacturers prioritize safety, and these cars come with all the safety bells and whistles. The Santa Fe has ten airbags in total, while the Sorento has eight, but both have a full range of driver assistance features, such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assistance.
