2013 Kia Sorento is a spacious, three-row SUV

The 2013 Kia Sorento is a small SUV with seating for up to seven passengers. As one of the few compact SUVs with an optional third row, the Sorento offers space and utility uncommon in this class. It comes well equipped too, with plenty of standard features even on base models. Athletic handling and an available V6 make it relatively fun to drive too. The Kia Sorento is a great option if you want midsize SUV passenger space with small SUV maneuverability.
