Room for the family and some fun in the 2014 Kia Sorento

The 2014 Kia Sorento gets a number of updates that improve how it drives and keeps all of the appeal that makes it such a versatile family hauler. The optional V6 engine receives a bump in power to 290 horsepower. A revised suspension improves handling and ride quality. Plus, the Sorento is one of the few small SUVs to offer an optional third row, so it can provide more seating than most of its rivals. It also packs a punch when it comes to value and offers a lot of standard features for the money.
