The 2019 Honda Pilot in Kenosha vs. The Kia Sorento

October 9th, 2019 by

With an updated look, versatile interior, and technological advancements, the 2020 Honda Pilot in Kenosha can handle any competitor out there, including the Kia Sorento.

 

The Pilot’s powerful V6 engine produces 280 horsepower versus the Sorento’s 185, along with 84 pounds per foot of more torque (262 vs. 178) for ultimate power and control. When these two SUV’s were put to the test, Motor Trend concluded that the Pilot was much faster than the Sorento 4 cylinder and V6 engines:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aside from its incredible agility, the Pilot also hosts a better fuel economy and an engine control system that can shut down half of its cylinders for even more improved fuel efficiency:

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re ever caught in heavy traffic or at a stoplight, the Pilot’s engine will automatically turn off and on for fuel conservation while also reducing pollution. Another way this Honda helps the environment is with its cap-less fueling system that automatically opens and closes when you’re pumping gas. Goodbye gas cap, and hello cleaner Earth. The Sorento doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system or automatic engine start and stop, so, unfortunately, they aren’t as eco-friendly.

 

Moving over to the Pilot’s ergonomics, having an advantage in colder weather can save you time and hassle when you’re out on the road. When the rain starts coming in, the Pilot’s standard speed-sensitive wipers increase in speed when the vehicle does, so you as a driver won’t have to interfere or continuously adjust the wipers. This SUV also has side window demisters to clear off any condensation or frost buildup during the winter, so your vision is always clear. The Sorento doesn’t offer automatic speed adjusting wipers or window demisters.
