a lotta SUV for the $
We compared several mid sized SUV's by test driving and pricing them out with similar features/packages and the Kia was the best value that we found. We were also very impressed with the ride and the safety features (autonomous braking, lane monitoring, blind spot monitoring and a great back up camera). The basics of the vehicle are great as well - a smooth and surprisingly quiet ride and solid acceleration with the 3.3 V6.
"Made" in USA
Assembled here with US engine and US transmission. Best warranty in the market that I have seen. Rides and handles well. Slightly underpowered accelerating onto highway smoothly with 4 cylinder standard engine. Smallish rear window.
Best SUV for the money
Leased this SUV for 3 years this past week. I choose the snow white pearl with merlot leather interior. I traded 2 other vehicles in for this one as my wife and I didn't need 2 since we are retired. I have leased over 20 vehicles in the past 20 years including BMW, Mercedes, Audi and Lexus. The Sorento is one of the best vehicles I have ever leased. I have the SX with Advanced Technology package which includes Lane Departure Warning, Advanced smart cruise control, Forward Collision Warning Autonomous Emergency Warning and Electronic Parking Brake. I added remote start and Home link rear view mirror. The build quality is exceptional, doors close with a solid thud like the German cars, and interior quality is as good or better than Lexus RX350. Interior noise levels are exceptionally low with no tire hiss being heard in the rain which makes listening to the very good 10 speaker Infinity sound system even better. Heated and ventilated front seats are great along with the heated steering wheel. The 3rd row isn't that roomy but I will probably not use it that much but cargo room behind the second row is very good. If you will use the 3rd row often this may not be your best choice. Reliability isn't known yet since I only have 650 miles on the SUV. I hope this helps anyone looking to purchase an suv.

2017 Kia Sorento video

MARK TAKAHASHI: I'm Edmunds editor Mark Takahashi. And here's an Expert Rundown of the 2017 Kia Sorento. There's a lot to like about the 2017 Kia Sorento, even among other mid-size SUVs. It's hard to beat the value proposition for a long list of features, reasonable pricing, and the industry's longest warranty. As a family hauler, its top safety scores should be a strong draw for shoppers. The Sorento is available as either a two or a three-row SUV, with the last row being suitable for smaller passengers only. There's not a lot of cargo space behind the third row. But overall, you get more capacity than the average two-row SUV. The second row seats are comfortable and score points for their ability to slide and recline. They also fold flat using remote levers in the cargo area. The Sorento's interior is well-made and attractive, making it look and feel more expensive than it is. The bottom line is the Kia Sorento is worth your attention. Whether it's the two or three-row model, it competes well against the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport as well as the Ford Edge, even the Toyota Highlander, which is one of our favorites. Also, keep an eye out for the forthcoming Volkswagen Atlas.

There's ambition behind the 2017 Kia Sorento. Redesigned for the 2016 model year, it makes its way into this new year with some significant refinements. That includes improved smartphone integration, a few choice safety tweaks and some trim variations. Previous generation Sorentos may have been compact crossovers at a keen price, but this latest Sorento has ascended up into mid-size mainstream where the competition is stiff and the options list must be comparable.

One advantage the Sorento brings into the fray is that it can be tailored to any customer. There are three different engines available: a base non-turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four and a thumping 3.3-liter V6. Those powerplants all come mated to a six-speed automatic transmission churning either the front wheels or all four of them.

Particularly when equipped with the V6, the Sorento is a refined and sophisticated everyday driving companion. And it's versatile too, with a choice of two or three rows of seating. Save the rearmost seat for the toddlers, however.

With its multiple personalities, the Sorento can be considered an alternative to virtually any crossover, from basic compacts to three-row behemoths fitted out like the Sultan of Brunei's personal 747. Well, minus the gold-plated lavatories and on-board dining room(s).

Fuel consumption naturally varies according to powertrain choice. The best fuel economy numbers come with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive that specs out at 24 mpg combined (21 city/28 highway). The lowest ratings are generated by the Sorentos with the big 3.3-liter V6 under their hoods and all-wheel drive. Those come in at a thirsty 19 mpg combined (17 city/23 highway). The turbocharged four-cylinder models have numbers closer the naturally aspirated four then the six.

With its wide range of talents, even wider range of options, and overall versatility, the Sorento attracts, no surprise, a wide range of buyers. It's one of Kia's best-selling vehicles and the largest crossover the company makes. It's also the first vehicle Kia produced (and continues to produce) at its assembly plant in West Point, Georgia.

Cutting through the blizzard of Sorento possibilities takes some solid research, and seeking out some good advice is always a good idea. And you've already taken a good first step by starting your buying journey here at Edmunds.com.
