Kia is a manufacturer best known for producing reliable vehicles that are pleasant to drive and work well all around. As such, the latest Kia Sorento is a prime example of this design philosophy in action.
The 2019 Kia Sorento does not excel in any one particular area, for the sole reason that it is quite good in all areas. Several improvements have been made since last years model, most clearly represented in the addition of a third row that is now standard on all trims.
The latest incarnation of the Sorento has been streamlined to two available engine configurations. The base model packs a 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Although it is the less powerful of the two options, this is still a fairly significant amount of power for a vehicle of this size and type. The alternative configuration, a 290 horsepower 3.3-liter V6, is truly a beauty. Capable of cranking 252-pound-feet of torque channeled through an eight-speed automatic transmission, the optional V6 configuration is a powerful addition to an already well-equipped vehicle.
Aside from under-the-hood concerns, the 2019 Sorento comes replete with state-of-the-art technology and cabin features. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are both standard options, easily controlled from an intuitive portal located on the dash. Optional features such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist are both responsive and easy-to-use.
All in all the 2019 Sorento holds true to Kia’s core values of quality and affordability, featuring exceptional tech and options mounted to a reliable well-engineered frame. If the 2019 Sorento is any indication, the future remains bright for Kia.
