Kia Sorento 2010 4-door SUV
The Sorento was priced similarly to many small SUVs, even though it was larger than most of its competitors. The interior was fairly roomy, with good fit and finish. With its low-range gearing and ample ground clearance, the Sorento was competent off-road. The ride was very stiff and handling was clumsy.

Safety Equipment

ABS available, standard from 2007. ESC standard from 2007. Head protection air bags standard from 2011.

Road Test

The Sorento LX is a traditional SUV with a worse ride than some pickup trucks. Further, its part-time four-wheel-drive system must be manually engaged and disengaged. Handling is clumsy, though standard stability control keeps it secure. On the plus...
