L -- $39,638

LX -- $41,761

Performance and Handling

A hybrid powertrain is paired with a turbo 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor. The combined output will be around 227 hp. There's also a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is matched with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This delivers about 277 hp.


An optional all-wheel drive will be available for those who want the upgrade.

Another big plus for the newer model Kia Sorento is the added leg room and head room. Even the second row seats will have more room to slide back and forth, which can be helpful on those trips.


Safety and Technology

The Bluetooth technology is a step above the normal, allowing two people to utilize it at once. Choose between the base model 8-inch infotainment screen or the optional 10.3-inch touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both compatible with the Sorento and will make things easier for you as you connect with the world.

Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection

Adaptive cruise control

Blind-spot monitoring

Standard lane-departure warning
