2018 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 no further than the Kia Sorento. Choose from five models starting with the L and moving through the top-of-the-line SX Limited. At just over 15 feet long the Sorento is easy to maneuver—but it still seats up to seven passengers. Heated and ventilated front seats are available and the second-row seats recline so everybody can get comfortable. Or fold down the second- and available third-row seats and you’ve got 73 cubic feet of cargo space. With all that room for passengers you’ll need to keep them entertained. So the available UVO link infotainment system brings Bluetooth Apple CarPlay Android Auto and Sirius Satellite Radio to a seven- or eight-inch touchscreen. No matter how practical it is a car should be fun to drive. With three engines to choose from and available Dynamax fully active all-wheel drive the Sorento fits that bill. Choose from a variety of colors and options and build a Sorento of your very own. The Kia Sorento. It’s just right.
Technology
Everybody stays connected in your Kia Sorento. Available UVO link infotainment system brings Apple CarPlay Android Auto Bluetooth and more to a seven-inch touchscreen. Navigation is available and comes with an eight-inch touchscreen. Download the free UVO eServices app and you can use your compatible smartphone to access your Sorento’s features. Wondering if you need to make a service appointment? Use UVO Vehicle Diagnostics. The Kia Sorento. Connectivity comes standard.
Safety
When you think of safety think of the Kia Sorento. Available driver-assist technologies include Blind-Spot Detection Rear Cross-Traffic Alert Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Departure Warning. Sick of overriding cruise control when someone’s in front of you? Available Advanced Smart Cruise Control uses radar to track your speed to the vehicle ahead. Ever wonder what’s around the corner you’re taking at night? Available Dynamic Bending Light HID headlights pivot so you can see around curves better. The Kia Sorento. It’s the safer choice.
Performance
No matter how practical it is a car should be fun to drive. With three engines to choose from and available Dynamax fully active all-wheel drive the Kia Sorento fits that bill. A turbocharged two-liter inline four develops 240 horsepower or go for the 3.3-liter V-its 290 horses can tow up to 5 000 pounds. All three engines come with a 6-speed Sportmatic transmission. Dynamax fully active all-wheel drive features torque-vectoring corner control and four-wheel drive lock mode so you’re in control wherever you are. The Kia Sorento. Practical fun.
