2020 Kia Sorento vs 2020 Honda Pilot | Harlingen, TX
Are you looking for a spacious, family-friendly SUV that puts safety, performance, and fuel economy above all else? Two SUVs that are likely at the top of your list are the 2020 Kia Sorento and the 2020 Honda Pilot. But if you’ve narrowed down your list to just these two options, how can you make the final call? We recommend test driving both, but also compare the two side by side. In doing so, you’ll easily see how the Kia Sorento offers more bang for your buck.
For starters, buying the 2020 Sorento means you will save money. Kia prides itself on affordability without cutting quality, and that’s true of its Sorento SUV. For 2020, you can get the Sorento at a significantly lower price point than the 2020 Pilot. In fact, if you were to go with the base model of the Sorento, you’d spend close to $5,000 less than you would on the base model of the Pilot.*
But those savings don’t mean you get less. In fact, in terms of warranty, you get more. The 2020 Kia Sorento boasts a 60-month or 60,000-mile basic warranty and a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The 2020 Honda Pilot can’t compete, offering just 36 months or 36,000 miles for the basic and five years or 60,000 miles for the powertrain.
Performance and efficiency
The most potent engine in the 2020 Pilot is a 3.5-liter V6 that serves up 280 horsepower, but that’s no match for the available 3.3-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine in the 2020 Sorento, which delivers 290 horsepower.
But if a difference in horsepower isn’t a selling point for you, perhaps fuel economy is. The most efficient engine in the Honda Pilot yields 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. This is easily outdone by the standard engine in the Sorento at 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.**
