Combing power, technological sophistication, and impressive design, the new 2017 Kia Sorento is turning heads from Lowell and Salem to Haverhill this summer. Not only does the Sorento provide some of the best specs (power and space), it’s also equipped with a spectrum of new devices meant to keep you entertained, connected and informed no matter where you find yourself on the drive. Just compare the Sorento to one of its competitors, the 2017 Nissan Rogue, to see what makes the Kia so impressive.

Engine Power

First of all, the Kia outperforms the Rogue in the important area of engine power:

  • The 2017 Kia Sorento – The Sorento features a 2.4L I4 engine that runs on 4 cylinders while being able to achieve as much as 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque, at least in its base-line trim. Meanwhile, the Sorento gives you 2000 pounds of towing power.
  • The 2017 Nissan Rogue – Though the Rogue runs on a 2.5L I4 engine, it only gives drivers 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque and manages just 1000 pounds of towing

Interior Space

One of the biggest advantages of the Sorento is its size: it has room for the whole family and their things while the Rogue lives up to the “compact” in “compact SUV.”

  • The 2017 Kia Sorento – You can look forward to 146.4 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Sorento, as well as impressive cargo space and a great degree of versatility, too.
  • The 2017 Nissan Rogue – The Rogue offers only 105.8 cubic feet of passenger volume, meaning that you’re going to be significantly more cramped in the Nissan on those long summer trips off to the in-laws.
