This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The Sorento is Kia's entry into the cross-over utility vehicle (CUV) segment. The Sorento features unibody construction and a streamlined, modern appearance. The Sorento is available in front-wheel drive (FWD) or four-wheel drive (4x4) in five- or seven-seat configurations. A 175-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder, 191-hp direct-injection 2.4-liter four-cylinder or a 276-hp 3.5-liter V6 are the available engine choices. A six-speed automatic transmission sends power to the wheels. All-speed traction control, stability-control, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, overhead curtain airbags, anti-whiplash head restraints and ignition disable are just a few of the standard safety features offered. 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, satellite radio, steering wheel audio controls, heated front seats, navigation system and a rearview camera are all available. The Sorento is a carry-over with minor repackaging for 2013.
