Kia Sorento Guide
Get the best online car shopping experience with expert reviews of the Kia Sorento. Read more to learn about the most important features and important factors to consider when researching the Kia Sorento.
When the midsize Kia Sorento first appeared, it featured a traditional, trucklike (body-on-frame) design that provided a level of ruggedness not typically found on midsize SUVs. Nowadays, most consumers want the better efficiency and handling that carlike (unibody) architecture provides. So Kia provided precisely that with its second- and third-generation Sorento models. These newer Sorentos are among the best picks for a small or midsize crossover SUV thanks to their choice of four-cylinder or V6 power, roomy interiors, available third-row seat and extensive warranty coverage. Discover the ins and outs on used Kia Sorentos, available now in Carvana's inventory.
Quiet, Comfortable RideWith comfortable seating for both front and second row passengers, the Sorento is also exceptionally quiet when traveling at freeway speeds. Furthermore, the Sorento's suspension system does a fine job of soaking up most bumps and ruts in the road.
Powerful V6 Engine AvailableThough the Sorento's base engine is a 2.4-liter four cylinder, optional on the LX version and standard on all other Sorento models is a 3.3-liter V6 that churns out 290 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque. In Edmunds performance testing, the V6 flashed impressive acceleration, going from 0 to 60 mph in 7.5 seconds.
Generous Cargo SpaceWhile dedicated three-row crossovers have more room to spare on average, the Sorento does offer a generous amount of storage capacity behind the second row seating with 36.9 cubic feet being made available. Folding the second row expands that available area to 72.5 cubic feet. It should also be noted that third row seating is available, though it's really only suitable for children.
Base EngineOne of the main criticisms of the Sorento is the somewhat underpowered base four-cylinder engine. Not only does the base offer mediocre acceleration, but the fuel economy is also somewhat disappointing for the small crossover segment. For this particular model, the Sorento gets 23 mpg combined (20 mpg city/27 mpg highway).
Price TagFor individuals in the market to buy a Sorento, you may be surprised to see an unexpectedly high sticker price for this vehicle. Base models of the Sorento start out modest enough, often hovering around the low-to-mid $20,000 range, however upgrading to the V6 can nearly double the amount you'll have to shell out.
HandlingThe Sorento boasts mostly passable handling attributes, though when forced to maneuver in confined areas or tackle winding roads, the Kia's lack of athleticism shows. For people eyeing the Sorento as more of a family vehicle, these drawbacks will be far less underscored.
