Model News

The Kia Sorento has been completely redesigned for 2016. With its clean styling, improved interior space and multiple engine options, the new Sorento is a big improvement over last year's model.


Value Writeup

The Kia Sorento competes in an extremely crowded segment against other mid-sized SUVs. Luckily for Kia, the Sorento stands out with bold new styling and a bevy of options, making the Sorento an extremely versatile competitor. Kias are known for their great warranties and a reasonable base prices however and the Sorento doesn't disappoint. With a base price of about $25,000 and a 5 year bumper to bumper warranty the 2016 Kia Sorento is extremely value competitive.


Model Highlights

While last year's Sorento only offered two engine options, the 2016 model adds an exciting new turbocharged 4-cylinder engine to the lineup. Displacing 2.0L, the new turbocharged engine makes 240 hp and slots squarely between the non-turbocharged four and 6-cylinder engines in the Sorento lineup, providing good power without a huge penalty to fuel economy. The base 4-cylinder is a 2.4L unit that makes 185 hp, while the more powerful and expensive V6 displaces 3.3L and makes a full 290 hp. All three engines are mated to a 6-speed transmission, while all-wheel drive is an option across the entire lineup, save base L models. Even the all-wheel drive V6 Sorento is rated 18 mpg in the city, while 4-cylinder models without all-wheel drive can achieve up to 29 mpg on the highway.

The Sorento comes in five trim levels, L, LX, EX, SX and Limited, while all but the L model are available with a V6.

The L may be the lowest trim level for the Sorento, but it's far from just a basic people mover. The L still comes with plenty of features to please those who maybe don't want to splurge too much on their new car purchase. Standard equipment on the L includes Bluetooth connectivity, SiriusXM satellite radio, steering wheel mounted audio and cruise controls, a USB input jack, power windows and door locks, heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signals and keyless, remote entry.

LX models feature a UVO eServices infotainment system, a rear mounted camera, additional USB charging ports, the option of adding third row seating, automatic headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels and a set of roof rails.

The EX comes standard with the 2.0L turbocharged engine, though the V6 is still an option. Buyers opting for the EX will also get dual-zone climate control, heated, 8-way power adjustable front seats, a backup warning system, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather seating trim, a gloss black grill, fog lamps and 18" alloy wheels.

The sporty SX trim gets even bigger 19" wheels and several body colored exterior additions to give the SUV a more cohesive look. The SX trim also includes a panoramic sunroof, a power rear liftgate, an Infinity sound system, voice recognition, a blind spot detection system with rear cross traffic alert, a thinfilm technology instrument cluster and rear seat sunshades.

The top of the line Limited trim includes just about everything. Unique items include premium Napa leather seating surfaces, ventilated front seats, heated second row seats, a driver's seat memory system, a heated steering wheel, alloy pedals and LED foglamps.
