Large and In Charge: 2017 Kia Sorento Review
The 2017 Kia Sorento is out, and the reviews are rolling in. The latest version of this crossover defies stereotypes and brings a high-quality design and plenty of power to the road. The overall refinement and style is set to revolutionize comparable models from American automakers. Put simply, the new Kia Sorento brings a value-oriented design no competitor can match.
While many automakers have abandoned rounded edges and curves, designers stayed the course with the 2017 Sorento. Inside, an upscale interior marked by luxurious upholstery and silver trim accents. The front seats deliver excellent support and the SXL trim brings both heated and cooled front seats. The new model even brings third-row seating.
The Kia Sorento brings a 3.3-liter V6 engine that delivers a pavement-pounding 290 hp. That powerful engine also earns up to an EPA-estimated 23 mpg on the highway. An available all-wheel-drive system adds to the vehicle’s maneuverability while the maximum towing capacity tops competitors at 5,000 pounds.
At the end of the day, the Sorento is a midsize crossover with a utility-driven design. The easily accessible hatch brings up to 73 cubic feet of interior space with both back rows folded down.
