Kia Sorento Overview

The midsized Sorento's redesign has resulted in a vastly improved SUV. It straddles a wide price range, making it an alternative to both small SUVs and midsized three-row SUVs. A 240-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder is new, and the 185-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder and the smooth and quiet 290-hp, 3.3-liter V6 carry over. All use a six-speed automatic. The cabin is now quieter, and ride comfort has improved markedly. Handling is responsive and secure. Available safety gear includes adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning, blind-spot detection, and rear cross-traffic alert, as well as a surround-view monitor. Good crash-test results are a plus.
