Kia Sorento Overview

The Sorento offers lots of interior space yet is easily maneuverable and not too bulky in day-to-day driving. An optional third-row seat, though tiny, is OK for small children. Revisions for 2014 brought some attractive interior upgrades and, most importantly, a refined new V6 that averaged 20 mpg in our tests. The ride remains a little jiggly, and handling, though responsive and secure, isn't exactly sporty. Comprehensive infotainment and electronic connectivity features are available and work well. The EX trim brings comfortable leather seats among its long list of features. Reliability of the V6 version is average; the four-cylinder is unknown. We can no longer recommend the Sorento because it scored a Poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test.
