5. 2013 Kia Sorento – 31.7 Inches

Topping its corporate sibling by just one-fifth of an inch is the Kia Sorento. This cleanly styled three-row crossover offers 31.7 inches of third-row legroom. Curiously the Santa Fe and Sorento tie each other in third-row headroom.

Given that some of their dimensions are identical, it’s interesting why the Kia has so much less cargo space than its Hyundai doppelganger. The Sorento’s maximum volume is just 72.5 cubic feet while the Santa Fe’s is 80. It probably has to do with wheelbase; the Hyundai’s is about 4 inches longer.

Other than the cargo discrepancy these two crossovers share a lot in common. Engine size and output, transmission gear count and fuel-economy ratings are identical. However, the Santa Fe can tow up to 5,000 pounds; the Sorento can only drag 3,500.
