Both the F-Pace and Sorento have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The F-Pace has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The Sorento’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

The F-Pace has standard Passive Front Head Restraints, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Passive Front Head Restraints system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The Sorento doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All-Wheel Drive is standard on the F-Pace. But it costs extra on the Sorento.

The F-Pace R-Sport/S’ driver alert monitor detects an inattentive driver then sounds a warning and suggests a break. According to the NHTSA, drivers who fall asleep cause about 100,000 crashes and 1500 deaths a year. The Sorento doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

The F-Pace has standard InControl, which uses a global positioning satellite (GPS) receiver and a cellular system to remotely unlock your doors if you lock your keys in, help track down your vehicle if it’s stolen or send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy. The Sorento doesn’t offer a GPS response system, only a navigation computer with no live response for emergencies, so if you’re involved in an accident and you’re incapacitated help may not come as quickly.

Both the F-Pace and the Sorento have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, available crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

The F-Pace’s corrosion warranty is 1 year and unlimited miles longer than the Sorento’s (6/unlimited vs. 5/100,000).

Jaguar pays for scheduled maintenance on the F-Pace for 5 years and 60,000 miles. Jaguar will pay for oil changes, lubrication and any other required maintenance. Kia doesn’t pay scheduled maintenance for the Sorento.

The battery on the F-Pace is in the trunk, which protects it from hot underhood temperatures which can degrade battery life. By keeping the F-Pace’s battery 20 to 30 degrees cooler, its life is increased by years. The Sorento’s battery is in the hot engine compartment.

On the EPA test cycle the F-Pace with its standard Diesel engine gets better fuel mileage than the Sorento 2.4 4 cyl. AWD (26 city/33 hwy vs. 21 city/25 hwy).

On the EPA test cycle the F-Pace 3.0 Supercharged gets better fuel mileage than the Sorento SX/Limited AWD V6 (18 city/23 hwy vs. 17 city/23 hwy). The F-Pace S gets better fuel mileage than the Sorento SX/Limited AWD V6 (18 city/23 hwy vs. 17 city/23 hwy).

Regenerative brakes improve the F-Pace’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Sorento doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the F-Pace’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The Sorento doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

For better traction, the F-Pace has larger standard tires than the Sorento (255/60R18 vs. 235/65R17). The F-Pace’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Sorento (265/40R22 vs. 235/65R17).

The F-Pace Base’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 60 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Sorento L/LX’s standard 65 series tires. The F-Pace’s optional tires have a lower 40 series profile than the Sorento SX/Limited’s 55 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the F-Pace Base has standard 18-inch wheels. Smaller 17-inch wheels are standard on the Sorento L/LX. The F-Pace’s optional 22-inch wheels are larger than the 19-inch wheels on the Sorento SX/Limited.

The F-Pace offers an optional full size spare tire so your trip isn’t interrupted by a flat. A full size spare isn’t available on the Sorento, it requires you to depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.

The F-Pace offers an optional driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads or off-road. The Sorento’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the F-Pace’s wheelbase is 3.8 inches longer than on the Sorento (113.2 inches vs. 109.4 inches).

The F-Pace handles at .86 G’s, while the Sorento LX pulls only .78 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The F-Pace executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 2.5 seconds quicker than the Sorento LX (25.9 seconds @ .69 average G’s vs. 28.4 seconds @ .59 average G’s).

For greater off-road capability the F-Pace has a 1.1 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Sorento (8.4 vs. 7.3 inches), allowing the F-Pace to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The F-Pace Prestige/R-Sport/S offers an optional heads-up display which projects speed and other key instrumentation readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The Sorento doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

The F-Pace’s front and rear power windows all open or close fully with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside the car. The Sorento’s standard passenger windows don’t open or close automatically.

If the windows are left down on the F-Pace the driver can raise them all using the key in the outside lock cylinder. On a hot day the driver can lower the windows from outside the vehicle using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the Sorento can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The F-Pace’s rain-sensitive wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically based on the amount of rainfall on the windshield. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving without constantly adjusting the wipers. The Sorento’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The F-Pace offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The Sorento doesn’t offer headlight washers.

The F-Pace has a standard automatic headlight on/off feature. When the ignition is on, the headlights automatically turn on at dusk and off after dawn. The Sorento only offers an automatic headlight on/off feature as an extra cost option.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors available for the F-Pace detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Sorento doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

The F-Pace’s standard side window demisters help clear frost or condensation from the side windows in the winter. The Sorento doesn’t even offer side window demisters, so the driver may have to wipe the windows from the outside to gain side vision.

The F-Pace Premium/Prestige/R-Sport/S has standard automatic dimming rear and side view mirrors which automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Sorento offers an automatic rear view mirror, but its side mirrors don’t dim.

The F-Pace has a standard dual zone air conditioning allows the driver and front passenger to choose two completely different temperatures so people with different temperature preferences won’t have to compromise. This makes both the driver and front passenger as comfortable as possible. Dual zone air conditioning costs extra on the Sorento and isn’t available on the Sorento L.

The F-Pace’s standard automatic temperature control maintains the temperature you set, automatically controlling fan speed, vents and temperature to maintain a consistent, comfortable environment. The Sorento L doesn’t offer automatic air conditioning.

The F-Pace’s available GPS navigation system has a real-time traffic update feature that plots alternative routes to automatically bypass traffic problems. (Service not available in all areas.) The Sorento’s navigation system doesn’t offer real-time traffic updates.

The F-Pace R-Sport/S’ optional Park Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Sorento doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
