SUVs are the preferred vehicle for most drivers today. With so many different models on the market, it can be a challenge to decide which one is the best choice for you. Two popular options in the mid-size category are the 2022 KIA Sorento and the Nissan Pathfinder. The two models are comparable to one another, but which one is the best for you? As you drive around Kenner, Metairie, or New Orleans, you want the best ride for your travels, and we’ll help you find it at Premier Kia of Kenner.

Comfort and Convenience Compared

Both the 2022 KIA Sorento and Nissan Pathfinder have three rows of seating, but your second and third-row passengers will love the extra legroom found in the KIA Sorento. You and your passengers will also love that the Sorento has more standard options than the Pathfinder on the base trim. For example, you can find fog lamps, heated mirrors, and illuminated vanity mirrors standard on the Sorento, but not in the Pathfinder. The Sorento also offers several optional features that are not offered on the base trim of the Pathfinder, including interior cargo shade, remote engine start, universal garage door opener, and an electro-chromatic rear-view mirror.

Comparable Safety and Driver Assistive Technologies

Both KIA and Nissan offer similar safety features that are standard like keyless entry, power door locks, brake assist, electronic stability control, and traction control. They also both offer many of the same driver-assistive safety features. However, KIA’s driver-assistive technology also offers lane departure warning and lane-keeping assistance as standard features to help you stay in your lane and avoid an accident on a busy highway.

Comparable Engine and Performance

The functionality of the two vehicles is also very similar. The KIA model is a bit slimmer, so you’re able to get into spots you wouldn’t be able into with the slightly larger Nissan Pathfinder. KIA also has a distinct advantage of range and miles per gallon for your fuel economy. The 2022 KIA Sorento base trim gives you 24 city mpg with a range of 513 highway miles. Pathfinder provides 21 city mpg with a range of 481 highway miles on the base model.


KIA is well-known for its outstanding warranty. This is one of the major differences between KIA and Nissan models. Nissan Pathfinder’s coverage includes a basic warranty of 3 years or 36,000 miles, a drivetrain warranty of 5 years or 60,000 miles, and Roadside assistance of 3 years and 36,000 miles. The 2022 KIA Sorento is protected by a basic warranty of 5 years and 60,000 miles, a drivetrain warranty of 10 years or 100,000 miles, and a 5-year/60,000-mile roadside assistance.
