If small crossovers are too small for your needs and midsize three-row SUVs are too big, you're in luck. The 2017 Kia Sorento fills the gap between those two classes by offering a seven-passenger vehicle that's easy to drive and value-packed. It's a great choice if you need extra seats for the morning carpool, yet it's as maneuverable as a typical compact crossover. Adding to the mix, the Sorento gains Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration for 2017, along with adaptive headlights and frontal collision mitigation.

If you enjoy off-road driving, don't miss the 2017 Kia Sorento. With the available all-wheel drive, this SUV can handle various road conditions and different types of terrain with ease.

Plus, the 7.3 inches of ground clearance make it easier for the Sorento to overcome obstacles and uneven terrain.

While the standard equipment on the 2017 Kia Sorento provides a nice array of tech features, numerous optional packages can help make every ride even more enjoyable and convenient.
