Both the 2020 Nissan Murano and Kia Sorento offer powerful engines to take you where you want to go. With the Sorento, you start out powered by a 2.4L I-4 for 185 horsepower with the option to upgrade to a 3.3L for more power. The Murano starts out with a 3.5L V6 for 260 horsepower, dominating the Sorento. Both models have the option of all-wheel drive to take on more challenges. Faster acceleration is possible with the 240 lb.-ft. of torque on the Murano compared to the lesser 178 lb.-ft. of torque for the Sorento. The Murano also has an edge with a slightly larger fuel tank at 19.0 gallons against the 18.8 gallons of the Kia.
Enjoy the features and functions of the latest technology on both the 2020 Nissan Murano and the Kia Sorento. Each one comes with an infotainment system to entertain and inform. It’s the little details where you will notice the differences. For instance, the Nissan comes with USB ports even on the base trim, while the Kia doesn’t have any. The Kia also doesn’t come with a standard proximity key like the Intelligent Key for Nissan. Both these SUV’s come with a stereo system, but the Nissan offers HD and a CD player, MP3 capability and auxiliary port for more versatility. Another area where the Murano shines is with voice recognition standard on even the base trim, which the Sorento lacks.
Both the 2020 Nissan Murano and the 2020 Kia Sorento offer ample space for passengers and cargo; however, the interior cargo volume for the Nissan is significantly more at 32.1 cubic feet rather than the 11.3 cubic feet of the Sorento. This same difference is noticeable when the seats are folded with the Nissan offering 67.0 cubic feet compared to 38.0 cubic feet with the Kia. Both models include a one-touch window up and down for the driver, but the Nissan also has it for the front passenger.
Enjoy a comfortable cabin in either SUV you select with power driver seats and many amenities. While both models include air conditioning, only the 2020 Nissan Murano includes the dual-zone automatic climate control for the base trim. Multiple airbags keep you safe in either SUV, but the Nissan also includes knee protection airbags for the driver and front passenger while this isn’t available with the Kia model. Parking assist and lane departure warning are available add-ons for the Murano to help you stay safe. Electronic stability and brake assist are standard for both models, but the Nissan Murano has its advantages over the Kia to put it on top.
