Have you been busy making SUV comparisons to find the perfect new ride for your Raleigh life? Your research isn’t complete until you’ve compared the 2020 Kia Sorento vs. Chevy Equinox. On the surface, both options appear to offer the advanced features you desire. But a closer look reveals the Sorento to be a favorable choice with third-row seating, superior towing capabilities, and great cargo space. Get all the details you need in this mid-size SUV comparison, courtesy of Hendrick Kia of Cary.

Kia Sorento vs. Chevy Equinox: Passenger Capacities

This may be a mid-size SUV comparison, but don’t be fooled into thinking the new Kia Sorento and the Chevy Equinox are on equal levels when it comes to passenger space. Only the Kia Sorento offers third-row seating for up to seven passengers. Meanwhile, the Chevy Equinox maxes out at just two rows for a five-passenger capacity. Whether you want to bring two more people or two more furry companions on your next Durham trip, the Sorento makes it possible.

Kia Sorento vs. Chevy Equinox: Cargo Volume

Any SUV comparison should include a detailed look at cargo space. This is yet another area where the Kia Sorento excels with more space behind the 2nd row and a greater maximum cargo volume than the Equinox:

2020 Kia Sorento

  • Cargo Volume Behind 1st Row: 73 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume Behind 2nd Row: 38 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume Behind 3rd Row: 11.3 cubic feet

2020 Chevrolet Equinox

  • Cargo Volume Behind 1st Row: 63.9 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume Behind 2nd Row: 29.9 cubic feet

The Kia Sorento is not just spacious but also incredibly versatile. 40/20/40 Split-Folding 2nd-Row Seats and 50/50 Split-Folding 3rd-Row Seats instantly adapt to your ever-changing passenger and cargo needs.

Kia Sorento vs. Chevy Equinox: Towing Capabilities

Do you have a compact camper or lightweight fishing boat you’d like to be able to tow through Apex? Thanks to its greater capabilities, the Kia Sorento keeps your towing options wide open:

2020 Kia Sorento Towing Capacity

  • Base Towing: 2,000 lbs
  • Maximum Towing: 5,000 lbs

2020 Chevrolet Equinox Towing Capacity

  • Base Towing: 1,500 lbs
  • Maximum Towing: 3,500 lbs

The Kia Sorento towing capabilities are made possible by a 290-hp 2.4L DOHC 16-valve I-4 engine. The Chevy Equinox engine is a 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder, generating a mere 252 hp.
