2019 Toyota Highlander

Let your wanderlust captivate you when you put yourself at the helm of the latest and greatest Kia Sorento driving option. The 2019 iteration puts a premium on efficiency and interior amenities, and you will find yourself making every excuse to hop behind the wheel and go for an errand run in this visual stunner. Don’t believe us? We have pitted this model up against the 2019 Toyota Highlander to show that it leaves other vehicles in the SUV segment in the dust. You can see it for yourself today by stopping at Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte at 202 Tamiami Trail in Port Charlotte, FL.

Performance

If you are looking to add an SUV of this caliber to your driveway, then having top-notch fuel ratings at your disposal is essential. The 2019 Sorento will instill undeniable vigor paired with frugality into your morning commutes, thanks to the standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that offers a money-saving 22/29 MPG city/hwy1 efficiency rating. When you opt for the 2019 Highlander, you might find yourself pulling over more often, as its standard 2.7L 4-cylinder engine can only offer a lesser 20/24 MPG city/hwy2 fuel rating. When inclement weather rears its ugly head, you want to be prepared. The 2019 Sorento will make sure you grip the pavement with ultimate precision, thanks to the available Dynamax™ AWD system that you can pair with the standard engine. If you want uncompromised traction in the vehicle from Toyota, you will have to switch engines and upgrade to the 3.5L V6 powertrain.

Interior

You deserve to have a cabin that lets you decompress after a long day at the office. The 2019 Kia Sorento makes sure that happens when you recline in the available 14-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with 4-way lumbar support. Unfortunately, when you choose the 2019 Highlander, you will only have an available 12-way power adjustment that doesn’t deliver in terms of flexibility. If you are the go-to carpool driver, then you will definitely appreciate the standard cloth seats with YES Essentials®3 fabric treatment that repels spills and stains to keep your interior looking like-new for the long haul. When you spill your coffee in the Honda, you will have to bring your ride to get detailed because this feature simply isn’t available! After you and your crew get settled in the Sorento, you can look toward the center stack where you will find the standard 7-inch touchscreen that is ready to play all of your music while you access your applications. The 2019 Highlander doesn’t quite live up to expectations, with a 6.1-inch screen.

Space

What better way to enjoy all of the features in the 2019 Sorento in a place that you can call home? Gone are the days of hearing passengers complain about feeling squished, as the Sorento boasts 39.4 inches of legroom in the second row that outshines the Highlander’s 38.4 inches. The third row is usually a position that most passengers dread, but that certainly won’t be the case in the 2019 Sorento, as it provides its occupants with 31.7 inches of leg space. The Highlander will have everyone begging to hop out and stretch their lower extremities, as it can only provide a compact 27.7 inches of room for your crew’s legs. So, go ahead and become the designated driver for your next trip to Mexican Grill for a night of fun because the vehicle from Kia has got you covered!

This matchup between the 2019 Kia Sorento vs 2019 Toyota Highlander near North Port, FL, ends with the Kia model taking home the crown! Come check it out today at Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte.

I had a recall on my 2012 Sportage. So had to take it to the dealership. Car was also due for oil change and tire rotation. Was expecting to hear I needed all kinds of other “ dealerships recommended repairs “. But was nicely surprised when no “additional repairs “were suggested. As with other Kia dealerships I have been to. Thank you Port Charlotte Kia.

I called to set up an appointment to have the oil changed in our Kia. I was pleasantly surprised upon arriving at the dealer when Eric asked me if I wanted it done now. He said it would be ready by 7 (it was 5:30)- I said, “Sure!” I went home and received a phone call within an hour- “Your car is ready!” I went back, had an easy check out and pick up. They followed all CDC guidelines- I felt safe. Thank you Eric. Thank you Fuccillo Kia. I was wowed!

Mikey G. was very helpful and courteous from the moment he approached me when I was "cruising" the lot and through the whole car-buying experience. He never tried to convince me that I should buy something I could not afford. Mikey was sympathetic to my needs and limitations. He was efficient and courteous in the final closing and explained everything thoroughly.
