2016 Ford Edge Sport Versus 2017 Kia Sorento SXL. Similarly Equipped, Price is equal

10

Asked by Aug 18, 2016 at 12:41 PM about the 2017 Kia Sorento SX V6 AWD

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I am a dad with 3 teenagers.  I am looking for a tweeny (Not Compact, Not
Large) SUV.  I travel to customers sites and for soccer & volleyball games.  

Out the door pricing on an 2016 Edge Sport with tech and moon roof is almost
equal to a 2017 KIA Sorento SXL.  

Sorento is near perfect except for no DRLs. Third row in Sorento will likely
never be used.  v6 is a must have!  Edge is also very nice.    

Love your reviews.  Bought my last car on your reviews.   This one is a coin
toss.  Which would you recommend?

Have you looked at the Honda CR-V, Toyota Rav4 or Mazda CX-5? Not a fan of Kia myself.

I have! Looking for something just a little larger. Any opinion on the Ford Edge Sport?

I have owned Fords all my life. No real issues. Sorry, not familiar with the Edge. Did you drive one yet? I would consider a Toyota Highlander if I was looking for a larger SUV.

I am not a fan of KIA either and I also am a Ford fan. I like the Mazda CX-7 and CX-9. The Ford Edge has been a good platform for Ford. If you do much travelling there are not nearly as many places to get a KIA repaired as there are for Fords. Toyota would be a great choice also. I would avoid anything that has a CVT transmission.

My wife owned a 2004 Sorento and replaced it with a 2016 Sorento. Until the last couple years, no major issues with the 2004 model. Our son is 11 and plays soccer & is a Black Belt in TKD, so we often have gear for class, practice or games in the Sorento. We test drove the Edge, Equinox, CX-5, Traverse and Acadia. The Pilot was too big for her, as we're the Acadia & Traverse. The 4-cyl Equinox didn't have enough power for DC area traffic. She felt too low in the Edge & 6-cyl Equinox. The CX-5 felt cramped. Built like a MLB, even I felt comfortable in the Sorento passenger & 2nd row seats. We have the 3rd Row almost always folded down for plenty of in-car storage. For us, the 2016 Sorento was a good choice. I do like the look of the Edge. My mom had a Lincoln version that was nice for her until someone hit it; she was safe, good safety features.
