Overview2017 KIA SORENTO
The 2017 Sorento is Kia's midsize SUV entry, and it is a solid family car for those who want to stick with an SUV instead of opting for a minivan. The Sorento is reasonably priced and gives you strong value for your purchase price. There are five different trim levels of the Sorento, ranging from the base model to the top-of-the-line SX that has the most features. Learn more about a 2017 Kia Sorento today.
Interior Space and QualityThe 2017 Sorento offers families plenty of space with seating capacity for up to seven people. The first two rows are very roomy, and even the third row is able to fit children, but it may be a little tight for adults as is the case with many three-row SUV's. The interior materials are soft and have a luxurious feel to them that certainly seems beyond the Sorento's price point.
Affordable PriceThe Sorento is a value entry in its class and is at the lower end of midsize SUVs in terms of price. The starting price is several thousand dollars cheaper than many of the competitors in its class. In addition, prices on used Sorentos, such as those from 2017, are generally more competitive than those of many midsize SUVs, and there are plenty of features to make the car a solid value.
The V6 EngineFor only several thousand dollars more than the base model, you can get a Sorento that has a V6 engine that magnifies the performance of the car. Not that the base model engine is ineffective, but the V6 model puts out 290 horsepower and gets to 60 miles per hour in just over seven seconds. The V6 especially helps when you have a full complement of passengers in the car.
Cargo SpaceThree-row SUVs in general do not have a great deal of cargo space. The Sorento has less cargo space than other models in the class with 11.3 cubic feet of space located behind the third-row seats. This area does expand with the third row folded down to give you more room if you need it, but a full family car means less room for luggage and gear on long family trips.
Safety FeaturesWhen you buy the more upscale trims of the Sorento, the vehicles come loaded with many available safety features. However, the base models do not come with all of these safety features standard. Blind spot monitoring and lane-keeping assist are not standard on all models of the Sorento and are only included on the higher trim levels.
SteeringWhile the steering is generally responsive when the Sorento is driving on the highway, it feels somewhat numb when it travels on more windy back roads. In general, the steering performs well enough to keep drivers happy, but it's not at the top of its class.
