2015 Toyota Highlander


2015 Kia Sorento

In the ever popular SUV segment, the 2015 Toyota Highlander and 2015 Kia Sorento are two customer favorites. Which one is the superior vehicle? We compared the two SUVs in categories like safety, warranty, and interior space. In the end, one vehicle surged to the lead and never looked back. Read on for our comparison of the 2015 Toyota Highlander LE and the 2015 Kia Sorento L.


The Toyota Highlander started off on the right track with its tremendous safety advancements. While both vehicles include standards like airbags and stability systems, the Highlander has extra conveniences that could prevent injuries. Toyota included Daytime Running Lights and whiplash injury lessening seats, which Kia left out completely. Further, the Highlander earned the IIHS’s “Top Pick Plus” in 2015. The Sorento didn’t even make the list. The Highlander is the clear winner for outstanding safety.


Toyota’s warranty is one of the best in the business. Kia has a hard time competing with Toyota’s 2 years and 25,000 miles of scheduled maintenance at no charge. In fact, Kia doesn’t offer those services at all. You’ll pay out of pocket for every oil change and tire rotation. Additionally, the Highlander has a 5 year corrosion warranty without a mileage limitation. The Sorento is limited to 100,000 miles of coverage. Toyota wins the warranty comparison, hands down.

Interior Space

If space is a concern, then you’ll want to go with the Toyota Highlander. The Highlander can seat eight passengers with more passenger room, compared to the Sorento’s seven passengers in a smaller space. If you are looking for plenty of cargo volume, then the Highlander has the Sorento beat yet again. The Highlander has a maximum capacity of 83.7 cubic feet, while the Sorento maxes out at 73 cubic feet. Any way you measure, the Toyota Highlander is simply a more spacious vehicle.
