2016 Kia Sorento Overview

The 2016 Kia Sorento enters the 2016 model year completely redesigned, even after a recent design refresh in 2014. Kia's somewhat aggressive approach to updating the midsize crossover SUV is paying off in a much more competitive vehicle than previous iterations.

Features & Specs

The base model for the 2016 Kia Sorento comes standard with air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, remote keyless entry, stereo system, satellite radio, auxiliary input jack, USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity. The 2016 Kia Sorento's infotainment system, called UVO, is standard on all trim levels higher than the base model. It offers features like app access connected to a driver's smartphone, Siri Voice controls, real-time traffic updates, stock quotes, sports quotes, etc. Much of the equipment of the higher models is optional for lower line models.

Design & Performance

Due to the rigid, sturdy frame, the Kia Sorento looks impressive with its larger, stronger dimensions. The 2016 Kia Sorento is quiet, delivering a smooth ride and dynamic driving experience. On the road, handling is controlled, car-like and predictable. The Kia Sorento creates a comfortable atmosphere for its passengers due to the easygoing, well-weighted drive.

Trim levels for the 2016 Kia Sorento include: L, LX, EX, SX and SX Limited.

Powertrain & Engine

The Kia Sorento is quietest when it's equipped with the 3.3L V6 engine. Even the 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine, added specifically for 2016, is louder, though the horsepower is somewhat weaker. Acceleration is lacking for either engine option, though both options balance out power and fuel efficiency surprisingly well for a crossover SUV. All models have a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all wheel drive is optional on all trim levels above the base Sorento.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The 2016 Kia Sorento is slightly longer than previous models, ensuring that the vehicle, which some may have mistaken for a compact crossover SUV, is rightfully placed in the midsize crossover SUV class. The increased size is reflected in its interior space, especially for front seat passengers.

Love my Sorento
Laura P | 10/13/2016

I love the design of the new Sorento. It's very roomy, I feel very safe (tremendous safety history) and even the simpler LX model has plenty of offerings. By going with the LX model, I did give up a good sound system and I wish it had an automatic tailgate. Other than that, I really love my vehicle.
