Kia Sorento Overview

The Sorento offers lots of interior space yet is easily maneuverable and not too bulky in day-to-day driving. Its refined 290-hp, 3.3-liter V6 averaged 20 mpg in our tests. Base models get a 2.4-liter direct-injected four-cylinder. The ride is 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. An optional third-row seat is OK for small children. Reliability has been average, but we can no longer recommend the Sorento because it scored a Poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test. A redesigned Sorento is due in 2015.
