Find your perfect Sorento

2017 Kia Sorento is a great pick for a family hauler

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.
