Vehicle Summary

As a midsize crossover SUV, the Kia Sorento provides families small and large with a wide range of options, plenty of room and a drive full of thoughtful features that allows everyone to relax. With fuel efficiencies ranging from an EPA estimate of 21 mpg city and 28 mpg highway for the 2.4L inline-four engine and front-wheel drive version to an EPA estimate of 17 mpg city and 23 mpg highway for the 3.3L V6 engine and all-wheel drive version, it provides either an efficient ride for city life or a solid powerhouse for rough roads1.

Kia Sorrento

This is a great family car. My wife loves driving it. It drives smaller than a minivan, and is easier to fit in the garage and in tight parking lots. But has the room of a mid-sized SUV with room for 7. Gets great gas mileage for its size, and has lots of power.


  • Visibility: Sits high, but isn't huge.
  • Ride and Handling: Rides nice and smooth and quiet
  • Styling: Looks great

Nice, clean and Dependable

great gas mileage, comfortable seats and love the blue toothe. load the back with 10 bags if mulch without letting the rear seat down.


  • Interior Space: very roomy for a large family or anyone with a very large dog.
  • Ride and Handling: Handles curves very good, tracks to the road surface.
  • Visibility: love the model, design and color


  • Dashboard: easy read for all systems. Like the service reminders.
  • Value: wish I could have bought it sooner.
  • Seat Comfort: passenger seat doesn't adjust up and down like drivers seat.

- Bb Holland, 2018 Kia Sorento

LOVE it - such a great vehicle!

I love it, we just moved to a mountainous area and it's perfect for going up and down in elevation, snow and rough roads. It's comfortable and an easy ride.


  • Ride and Handling: It handles really well and rides easy on roads
  • Weather Versatility: We have all kinds of weather here and it's been a champ through it all so far!
  • Interior Space: I used this car to move a lot of our stuff to our new home and it has a lot of space in it!


  • Dashboard: I do wish the slippery road light wouldn't stay on once the temps drop below 39, I live in the mountains that's a lot of the time!
  • Visibility: I do wish the back window was a little bigger, it would be just a little easier to see out of.
