The Orlando Toyota Highlander takes on the Kia Sorento!

When it comes to family-friendly SUVs, it may seem like the options are endless. There are a ton of different makes and models to consider, but which one is going to meet all of your drive time needs and keep you and your family safe? We've got numerous options at Toyota of Orlando alone - just trying to pick a model followed by a trim-level can seem near impossible. However, don't let it get you worked up - we're here to help! 

The Orlando Toyota Highlander dominates in technology and style 

One of our most popular family options is the new Toyota Highlander in Orlando. The 2014 model has been completely redesigned and should be here any minute; it's already earning rave reviews for its efficiency, its connectivity, its performance, its safety, and its incredibly sleek new style. Why should you consider this new Toyota SUV for your family, though? We're stacking is up against a main competitor - the Kia Sorento - to show you why it's a clearly superior choice!

Orlando Toyota highlander vs Kia Sorento

  • Let's talk technology and connectivity first. The 2014 Toyota Highlander in Orlando comes standard with Entune Audio (which means Bluetooth streaming, iPod connectivity and more) and an integrated backup camera with projected path. You'll find MP3 playback on the Kia Sorento, but you'll have to add on the backup camera for an additional fee!

  • Comfort and interior space are also a big deal when it comes to family-friendliness, and the new Toyota Highlander surpasses its competitor in this department, too. You'll find seating for up to eight (the Kia Sorento maxes out at seven passengers), plus way more cargo space - the Toyota SUV offers 13.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row of seats, while its Kia competitor only has 9.1 cubic feet to spare.

  • Performance is also taken up a notch on the 2014 Toyota Highlander in Orlando. If you're looking for a vehicle that can tow, this is the big winner - it can pull up to 5,000 pounds without batting an eye, where its Kia SUV competition falls short with towing capabilities of just 3,500 pounds.

  • Did we mention style? The Orlando Toyota Highlander comes standard with features like a sporty rear spoiler, projector-beam halogen headlamps, daytime running lights, heated power outside mirrors, and 18-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels. If you want any of those features on your Kia Sorento, you'll have to drop a chunk of change to get them!
