To put it bluntly, the Traverse looks like a glorified minivan with bland styling that would have easily looked at home on the roads a decade ago, and this is a brand new generation of Traverse, yet it still comes out behind. The Sorento has a much more refined look with elegant lines flowing from front to back, and the signature tiger-nose grille to cap things off under the hood.

How do the Sorento and the Traverse 2018 models compare?

If you are considering your options, then likely price is the first category that you are going to be looking at. In that department, the Kia Sorento comes out on top by a long shot. When you side with the Sorento you are signing up for $4,000 in savings over the Traverse.

Not only does the Sorento save you money with its purchase price, but it will also continue to save you money on the road with that impressive fuel economy. By getting 3 mpg extra in the city and 1 extra mpg on the highway, you may be surprised at how quickly those savings can add up.

The Kia Sorento lets you choose between having a third row, and not having one. This way you can decide whether to prioritize room for people or room for cargo, and you can still get a third row at a lower price point than the base price for the Traverse. With the third row in place, the Sorento can accommodate seven passengers total.

Finally, we come to warranty. You may already know about the amazing Kia warranty, but what you may not know is that Chevy offers a powertrain warranty that only provides protection for half the amount of time and a little over half the mileage of a Kia. That should be enough to convince anybody, and if it’s enough to convince you, then you come to Carolina Kia of High Point, and let us help you find the perfect Sorento in the High Point area.
