It is not a comfortable ride. Not much leg room in the back and uncomfortable seats in the front. Noisy ride, even when the windows are up. I have to turn the stereo to max to hear some stations when driving on the highway. Cheap materials - the trim on the dash looks like cheap plastic. Insufficient power on the acceleration.
Great car for a good price!
2015 Kia SorentoElizabeth F - Franklin, TN04/24/2017
I downsized from a basic minivan when the children grew up and was able to afford "luxury" items at a decent price with a Kia. I have leather seats (heated and cooled) and a panoramic sunroof. It has blind spot warning and a backup camera. The car handles great. I just miss all the extra room and sliding doors I had with a minivan. I will definitely buy another Kia when I pass this one along to a teenager.
drives great. lots of features for price

Kia Sorento Overview
The Kia Sorento features a traditional design for crossover SUVs. Blessed with above-average towing and off-road capabilities, the Kia Sorento was a popular choice in the increasingly competitive midsize crossover SUV segment.
Kia Sorento History
The Kia Sorento was sold from 2003 to 2010. The Sorento took more inspiration from trucks than from cars at the time, though the second-generation Kia Sorento had a decidedly more car-like frame to better appeal to customers.
How It Drives
The Kia Sorento's handling and steering are far from sporty, but it's still well-weighted, spacious, and steady enough to comfortably call it a family vehicle. Its base model comes with a very efficient engine, though anyone seeking more performance has more powerful options.
Used Kia Sorento Value
Over its lifespan, the Kia Sorento evolved from more traditional SUV roots to become a more modern crossover SUV that appeals to more consumers. The Kia Sorento now goes up against the likes of the Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Edge, and Dodge Journey.
Kia Sorento Standard Features
The Kia Sorento's most recent offering includes a 3.5L V6 engine standard, with a 2.4L four-cylinder engine as a more economical option. The Kia Sorento also offers an option between a six-speed manual versus automatic transmission. Base Kia Sorento vehicles come with front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive is available on all versions except vehicles with manual transmissions.
