Reviews for 2019 Kia Sorento
Exactly what new family needed!
With a new addition of my little girl to our growing family my KIA Soul (hamster car) wasn't gonna cut it. The Kia Sorento with the optional 3rd row is perfect. Leave it down permanently and have huge cargo space for all the kids accessories.
- Ride and Handling: Very smooth ride. With the LX and slightly larger engine I can drive with ease and let the Kiddos sleep.
- Fuel Economy: Just a larger car and larger engine. Had to sacrifice at the pump for the room needed. On Eco I'm getting 21-22 mpg city.
2019 Sorento LX
I love my SUV! Not a fan that it doesn’t come equipped with the Uvo System. Nor does the remote key fob open the tailgate. Overall the space and speed make up for it! I’m going to wait a couple of yrs & purchase another Kia! This is my 4th Kia, I am a fan!
- Power: There are 4 drive modes! Eco, Comfort, Smart & Sport. I keep mine on Eco but it never feels sluggish! I previously owned a 2018 Kia Optima. My Sorento has just as much power as the Optima!
- Interior Space: I wanted a vehicle with space where I could make big purchases & use my own vehicle for pick up. This Sorento is just what I needed!!!
- Ride and Handling: Made a 6 hour drive in rain! Not once did I feel uneasy! This vehicle remained sturdy next to huge semi trucks! I felt like I was sitting at home!
- Technology and Entertainment: This model did not come equipped with Kia’s Ovu Infotainment System! I was a little disappointed once I found out. I had to cancel my Sirius subscription from my previous vehicle early.
- Styling: Would have liked 2 key fobs and fobs that actually work with the rear liftgate. I always have to get out & open the tailgate for curbside ordering.
Looks good and handles well!
The Sorento has been a great car so far. I love how it handles and the versatility of the space it does have. We have had some weather to contend with already and the Sorento handles it beautifully. We had a Nissan Quest previously and it was a nightmare in as little as rain. In addition to functionality and handling, it looks good, too!
- Ride and Handling: Just beautiful and quiet, too.
- Interior Space: Three rows!! If you’ve got kids this works so well. You can even handle a bunch of teens in it around town. I wouldn’t suggest trying to put adults back there unless you know them really well and they are agile.
- Seat Comfort: My teens managed a long car trip in the Sorento. This is significant because they grew up in a Nissan Quest. They were used to more room than they knew what to do with. To have them give this car good marks for that trip is significant to me!
- Cargo Space: I wish somehow there was a well in the back for storage. There is just a tiny little space for a couple of small items. If you need space, you have to put the third row down.
