2015 Kia Sorento: this family SUV keeps it sporty

Larger than most compact SUVs but smaller than midsize ones, the 2015 Kia Sorento is a bit of an in-betweener. It comes as a two-row SUV but offers an optional third row, which is a rarity among small SUVs. It also offers a choice between a base four-cylinder engine and a more powerful optional six-cylinder engine. Thanks to its relatively small size, the Sorento can navigate tight spots pretty well, and with the V6 engine, it's fun to drive.
