2017 Kia Sorento vs 2017 Nissan Murano in Kaneohe, HI

You deserve to get a midsize SUV that includes everything on your checklist. Here at Aloha Kia, we want to do our part to help you navigate the options with this comparison of the 2017 Kia Sorento vs 2017 Nissan Murano in Kaneohe, HI. Come and test drive the commendable Sorento at your local Kia dealer today!

Performance is what defines your driving experience on a daily basis, and the Sorento easily impresses with its power and capability. When equipped with the 3.3L V6 engine, you’ll have access to plenty of muscle with 290-hp and 252 lb.-ft. of torque. The Murano’s 3.5L V6 engine won’t give you same sense of excitement with its 260-hp and 240 lb.-ft. of torque. In the Sorento, you’ll also have the option to go with a 2.4L 4-cylinder or a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, allowing you to customize based on your needs. The Murano doesn’t have this kind of flexibility, as it only offers one powertrain option.

When it comes to bringing your boat out to Kailua Bay, there is hardly any competition in this comparison of the 2017 Kia Sorento vs 2017 Nissan Murano in Kaneohe, HI. The Sorento offers a muscular 5,000-lb. maximum towing capacity1 that is ready to accommodate all kinds of different loads. You won’t find anything close to this capacity in the Murano, which tops out at a 1,500-lb. tow rating2. Even when equipped with the 4-cylinder engine on the base trim, the Sorento beats out the Murano with a formidable 2,000-lb. towing capacity3.  

Enjoy advanced technology and convenience when you are behind the wheel of the 2017 Sorento. Audiophiles will love the addition of the Clar-Fi™ and Infinity® Surround Sound Audio System4, which improves the quality of music by scanning compressed files and restores them to fill the cabin with crisp versions of your favorite songs. The Murano’s advanced speaker system lacks the addition of

Clar-Fi™ innovation. Find your ideal position with the available 14-way power-adjustable driver’s seat in the Sorento, a feature you will truly appreciate on longer drives. You’ll be limited, however, with the Murano’s mere 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Little details can make a big difference when it comes to the overall mood of the cabin, and the Sorento features optional carpeted floormats and a leather-wrapped and wood-style steering wheel for premium sophistication. You’ll only get a plain leather-wrapped steering wheel available in the Murano and no option for carpeting.  

See where the day takes you with the winner of this head-to-head: the Sorento. Feel free to give us at Aloha Kia a call with any questions you have about this 2017 Kia Sorento vs 2017 Nissan Murano in Kaneohe, HI, comparison. We can’t stop talking about this amazing midsize SUV!
