I bought the Kia Sorento after test driving a Saturn Vue, Honda CR-V and Jeep Compass. The Kia is a more comfortable ride and has a more powerful engine and higher towing capacity. The interior of the Kia and Saturn were similar - both had pros and cons. Far better interior than the Honda or the Jeep. The Kia has slightly higher ground clearance
Michelin tires, full size spare under vehicle, more powerful engine, ability to open back glass alone or full back gate, underseat storage on front passenger seat.
Front passenger seat that folds flat, back seats that fold flat w/out having to take headrests off, a/c vents for back seat, better options for sound system, back seats recline like the Sportage and able to open glass alone from gate (not just by pressing remote).
