This is a great SUV hiding in plain sight. Most midsized crossovers often feel like uninspiring errand runners. But the Sorento offers class-above elegance at mainstream prices. It's a shade smaller than its midsized competitors, but that allows the Sorento to be city-friendly while still offering the space and features of a larger vehicle—including an optional-but-tiny third-row seat. The smooth 290-hp V6 is responsive with competitive fuel economy, while the base 185-hp four-cylinder is no slouch. The suspension absorbs the worst bumps and ruts with dignity while still giving you confidence in corners. The interior design is flat-out gorgeous, with intuitive controls and infotainment system. The Sorento comes with well-above-average reliability.
