Having a full-size SUV is great if you have a large family, do a lot of carpooling or just like to have the extra space. SUVs offer the maximum seating you'd find in a minivan with ample cargo space, flexible interiors and exceptional style as well. With an SUV, you can upgrade from your "soccer mom" minivan to a vehicle with a bold look and a number of convenience features. To help you find the perfect SUV for your lifestyle, at Frank Boucher Kia we have a side by side comparison of three full-size SUVs, the 2017 Kia Sorento vs 2016 Toyota Highlander vs 2016 Nissan Pathfinder.
Each of these models have a number of style features and high performance powertrains, offering you high capacities for towing, fuel economy and cargo space. Across all three models, you can get a max towing capacity of 5,000 lbs., a capability perfect for towing a pop-up camper or small trailer. Each SUV also offers similar fuel economies, the 2017 Sorento offering a slightly higher rating than the others.
