Model News

Following a restyling and mechanical upgrade in 2012, the 2013 Kia Sorento receives only selective upgrades to various equipment and packaging. In the Sorento EX, leather seating is now standard, the base LX has an optional UVO voice-activated infotainment system, rearview camera, rear sonar, heated front seats and fog lamps. The LX V6 now comes with standard third-row seating. Planned for later in the model year is a new Convenience Package with 8-way power driver's seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter and a first aid kit.


Value Writeup

The 2013 Kia Sorento is sized between more compact crossover models like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 and mid-size models such as the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander. The Sorento is a little more maneuverable than the larger vehicles while offering just as much practical space.

The Sorento was completely redesigned in 2011 and offers a wealth of passenger and cargo space, while its engine lineup offers both power and fuel efficiency. Kia says that the V6's 276-horsepower output is best-in-class, and fuel economy on the 4-cylinder Sorento is among the best in this category.

The Sorento's strong warranty--ten years or 100,000 miles for powertrain and five years or 60,000 miles basic warranty, and five years or 60,000 miles of roadside assistance--also help make this a strong choice for families.


Model Highlights

For 2013, the Sorento offers a 4-cylinder engine with Base, LX, SX and EX GDI trims, and is offered in two versions. The standard engine is a 175-horsepower 2.4L 4-cylinder, offered on the Base and LX models. A direct-injected 191-horsepower, 2.4L 4-cylinder engine is standard on the LX GDI and EX GDI, and paired only with a 6-speed automatic. The SX's standard (and LX- and EX-optional) 3.5L V6 makes 276 horsepower and brings especially strong acceleration with a smooth, refined character, while the 4-cylinder is quite economical, achieving EPA ratings of up to 21 mpg city, 27 mpg highway in all-wheel-drive configuration.

The all-wheel-drive system is available with LX or EX trims, regardless of the engine. Kia's all-wheel-drive system can send up to 50 percent of power to the rear wheels when needed and comes with a locking center differential that can help provide better traction in harsh weather conditions. Kia hasn't completely forgotten about weekend hauling and towing needs, and the Sorento can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

First- and second-row seating in the Sorento is ample for full-size adults, and the optional third-row has enough space for children, though it does reduce cargo room. Second and third-row seats both fold forward to allow 72.5 cubic feet of cargo space in all.

Standard equipment on all Sorento models is extensive, and includes a trip computer, power windows, locks and mirrors, air conditioning, a Bluetooth hands-free calling interface and a sound system that includes an MP3-compatible CD player, USB interface, auxiliary inputs and Sirius satellite radio. Base models are equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, while LX GDI models step up to a 6-speed automatic in addition to body-color heated mirrors with integrated turn signals for a more upscale appearance. Automatic one-touch up/down windows and a rear center armrest are also included. EX GDI models include push-button start, smart keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, leather seating, fog lamps, heated mirrors, automatic headlamps and larger 18-inch alloy wheels.

Options on the all-new Base LX include a UVO voice-activated infotainment system, rearview camera, rear sonar, heated front seats and fog lamps, while the LX GDI options include a third-row seat, plus a Convenience Package with heated front seats, a backup system, fog lamps and roof rails. Among the exclusives offered on the EX GDI are a Premium Package, with a panoramic sunroof and leather seats; a rear DVD entertainment system and a Limited Package that brings chrome wheels plus a navigation system, real-time traffic information, accent interior lighting and a 550-watt Infinity surround-sound system.

Safety features on the 2013 Sorento include seat-mounted side airbags, side-curtain bags and front active headrests on all models, along with electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes, plus Hill Start Assist Control and Downhill Brake Control, which uses the vehicle's transmission to help moderate speed on slippery grades.

Summary
Kia Motors America (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Kia Sorento vehicles manufactured October 19, 2009, to January 31, 2013. In the affected vehicles, if excessive force is applied to the gear shift lever, the brake-shift interlock mechanism may chip or crack allowing the transmission being able to be shifted out of "Park" without the brakes being depressed. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 114, "Theft Protection."

Consequence
Without requiring the brake to be pressed, the vehicle may be unintentionally shifted out of Park, allowing it to roll, which may result in a crash.

Kia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the brake-shift interlock mechanism, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 24, 2015. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is SC124.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
