The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Kia Sorento gets a quick fix for its minor flaws: they brighten the cabin and soften the ride. The 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe splits its identity in two: the three-row ute goes V-6 only, while the five-passenger Sport leans on turbo power, a flexible second-row seat and a cushy ride to make its best case ever.
