Model Highlights

The 2017 Kia Sorento offers an exciting range of powerplants, including a turbocharged 4-cylinder displacing 2.0 liters. The engine makes 240 horsepower and slots squarely between the non-turbocharged 4- 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 horsepower, while the more powerful and expensive V6 displaces 3.3 liters and makes a full 290 horsepower. 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 at 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 SX Limited. All but the L model are available with the 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 17-inch alloy wheels, 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, and a set of roof rails. Optional equipment for the LX includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, parking sensors, a powered drivers seat, leather steering wheel and dual-zone climate control.

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-inch alloy wheels.

The sporty SX trim gets even bigger 19-inch 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 (TFT) instrument cluster and rear seat sunshades.

The top-of-the-line SX 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 fog lamps. New this year is all the equipment from the Advanced Technology Package, including forward collision mitigation, emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and adaptive headlights.


Model News

Following a complete redesign last year, the Kia enters 2017 with few changes. Among them, the Sorento adds Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, plus an Advanced Touring Package and Advanced Technology Package, which make active safety like forward collision warning, adaptive headlights and cruise control, and emergency braking features available on lower trims. The top SX Limited trim comes with these features standard.


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 styling and a bevy of options, making it an extremely versatile competitor. Kias are known for their great warranties and an affordable base price, and the Sorento doesn't disappoint. With a base price of about $25,000 and a 5-year bumper-to-bumper warranty, the 2017 Kia Sorento is extremely value-competitive.

Summary
Kia Motors America (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Sorento vehicles manufactured October 27, 2014, to August 25, 2016, and 2017 Sportage vehicles manufactured December 10, 2015, to August 26, 2016. The affected vehicles are equipped with an accessory trailer hitch wiring harness that, due to a malfunction of the tow hitch module, may result in the trailer brake lights being constantly illuminated. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, " Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

Consequence
If the trailer brake lights stay illuminated while being used, other drivers may be confused, increasing the risk of a crash.

Kia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the trailer tow hitch harness, free of charge. The recall began January 18, 2017. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia's number for this recall is SC142.
