2021 Volkswagen Atlas vs 2021 Kia Sorento

Volkswagen has been focusing more and more on new SUV lineups over the last few model years, and we’ve all been reaping the benefits of that focus by being able to get behind the wheel of the most impressive SUVs in their respective classes.

But saying that our new VW SUV lineups are better than any other new SUV lineups out there is one thing – proving that fact is another. And that’s exactly what we’ve set out to accomplish here at Karen Radley VW in Woodbridge, VA. This time around, we’re shining the spotlight on the greatness of the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas as we compare one of the most impressive SUV lineups on the road today with the 2021 Kia Sorento lineup. So, let’s get right down to it and see if a new Kia SUV can outmatch a new VW SUV.

As outlined in our 2021 VW Atlas lineup versus 2021 Kia Sorento lineup comparison table above, the 2021 Volkswagen Atlas lineup comes out on top in some very important categories – starting with what’s found under the hood.

As you can see, the 2021 Atlas lineup features far more standard power than its new 2021 Kia counterpart – 235 horsepower/258 pound-feet of torque to 191 horsepower/181 pound-feet of torque.
