2018 Santa Fe Sport vs Sorento Value Comparison
It's not uncommon for Hyundai models to have an edge over the competition when it comes to value. That is certainly the case here, as the Santa Fe Sport starts at a lower MSRP than the Sorento, while also providing some standard equipment the Sorento does not.
These features include driver lumbar support, passenger-side 1-touch window down function, driver knee protection airbags, a full chrome grille and even daytime running lights. On top of that, it also comes with a far superior anti-perforation warranty. For those who want the latest and greatest infotainment capabilities, they can be found in both models through Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, but you should expect to pay a bit more to have those features come standard if you opt for the Sorento.
