The 2016 Dodge Journey is Canada’s favorite crossover, so it should go without saying that Regina and Moose Jaw drivers can expect more from it than from the 2016 Kia Sorento. Standard features are more impressive with the Journey despite the wide gulf between their starting prices, and it continues to pull ahead of the Sorento when it comes to available systems and cargo-carrying versatility. For everything you could demand of a crossover, the Journey simply does it better. Keep reading to see how the Sorento compares to the Journey.
 

Value

Both the 2016 Dodge Journey and the 2016 Kia Sorento come with a strong range of premium features as standard, including:

  • Quad Halogen Headlamps
  • 17-Inch Aluminum-Alloy Wheels
  • 6-Speaker Sound System
  • Steering Wheel-Mounted Audio and Cruise Controls

That might seem to place the two on equal footing, until you notice that the 2016 Journey starts at just $20,495 versus a staggering $27,695 for the 2016 Sorento. That’s a difference of $7,200, and the Journey still manages to offer features as standard that the Sorento doesn’t. For example, the Journey’s entry-level Canadian Value Package offers a dual-zone climate control system – the same isn’t provided as standard with the Sorento until the EX trim, which starts at $35,795.

Entertainment

The 2016 Dodge Journey is available with a Radio 8.4 multimedia centre. Its 8.4-inch touchscreen is the largest in this class, so you’ll find controlling your driving experience much easier than you would in the 2016 Kia Sorento.

Additionally, you’ll be able to keep the kids happy thanks to a 2nd-row 9-inch video screen. It plays DVDs for rear passengers, with sound coming through two sets of wireless headphones to ensure that your own peace and quiet remains undisrupted. The Sorento offers no such rear entertainment system of its own.

Versatility

The 2016 Dodge Journey is able to elevate itself above competitors like the 2016 Kia Sorento based on features alone, but it also goes a step further by ensuring complete practicality. In fact, Regina and Moose Jaw drivers will be able to take advantage of Best-in-Class storage systems, including:

  • Class-Exclusive 2nd-Row In-Floor Storage Bins: Two bins come with removable, washable liners for easy cleaning, and they can each hold up to a dozen 355-ml cans with ice.
  • Flip ‘n Stow Fold-Flat Front-Passenger Seat with Under-Seat Storage: This innovative storage nook is perfect for keeping valuables away from prying eyes. You can just lift up the seat cushion and stow away smaller items in seconds.
