The 2021 Santa Fe has a classic crossover outline, but it’s cut and stamped to excess with lots of busy lines that try to make it look sporty. The new 2021 Kia Sorento, with its confidence-inspiring performance and impressive interior spaciousness, starts off with a clear advantage. We wanted to see how these two crossover models would match up in a side-by-side comparison, and you might be surprised by what we were able to find out.
