2021 Kia Sorento Review

Overview
Looking for a mid-size crossover with full-size passenger capability? Want a family hauler that’s as luxurious as it is practical? With enough technology to keep everyone entertained? Then look at the Kia Sorento. Choose from five trims starting with the LX and moving through the top-of-the-line SX Prestige. The Sorento is easy to maneuver—but it still seats seven. Heated and ventilated front seats are available and the second-row seats recline so everybody can get comfortable. Or fold down the second- and third-row seats and you’ve got over 75 cubic feet of cargo space. You’ll need to keep all those passengers entertained. That’s why the infotainment system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. With two engines to choose from and available Adaptive All-Wheel Drive with Lock Mode your Sorento is as fun to drive as it is practical. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a Sorento of your very own. The Kia Sorento. It’s just right.
Technology
Everybody stays connected in your Kia Sorento. Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto bring your compatible smartphone to an eight-inch touchscreen. SiriuisXM satellite radio is available for the latest music news and sports. Available Navigation adds real-time traffic information. Available UVO Link turns your compatible smartphone into a remote control for your Sorento. Find your car in a crowded parking lot. Use Remote Climate Control to warm or cool the cabin before you get in. And with Remote Lock/Unlock you’ll always know your Sorento is secure. The Kia Sorento. Connectivity comes standard.
Safety
When you think of safety think of the Kia Sorento. Standard and available Kia Drive Wise driver-assistance technologies include Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. Sick of overriding cruise control when someone’s in front of you? Available Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go uses radar to track your speed to the vehicle ahead. The available 360-Degree Surround View Monitor gives you a bird’s-eye view of your Sorento. It’s perfect for pulling into tight parking spots—or driving down tight trails. The Kia Sorento. It’s the safer choice.
Performance
No matter how practical it is a car should be fun to drive. With two engines to choose from and available Adaptive All-Wheel Drive the Kia Sorento fits that bill. The standard 2.5-liter engine develops 191 horsepower and gets up to 29 miles per gallon. Or add a turbocharger for even more power. And turbocharged models come with the Trailer Package so you can tow up to 3 500 pounds. Adaptive All-Wheel Drive with Lock Mode features Torque-Vectoring Cornering Control giving you extra stability and all-weather performance. The Kia Sorento. Practical fun.
