Exterior – 2019 Kia Sorento
Both the Sorento and the Pilot have exceptional exterior features and design, but we think the Sorento offers a more modern and forward-thinking exterior. Both vehicles come with front fog lights and heated door mirrors. You’ll also get a sunroof when you choose the highest trim level on both vehicles. The sunroof on the Sorento offers an expansive view that extends to the first and second rows. The sunroof on the Pilot only offers a first row regular express sunroof. The highest trim level on the Sorento also comes with 19-inch chrome aluminum wheels while the Pilot comes with 20-inch machined aluminum wheels. Though, in the case of the Sorento, we think the 19-inch wheels end up providing better stability and a smoother ride.

Some features you’ll be missing if you go with the Pilot include both driver and passenger cooled front seats. The Sorento also features premium Nappa leather while the Pilot comes with standard leather seating surfaces on the highest trim levels. If you enjoy your music, we think the 10-speaker Harmon/Kardon speaker system in the Sorento outperforms the 10-speaker performance system in the Pilot.
