Our first Sorento was an LX back in 2012 then we traded for a 2014 EX V6 and just last week traded that one for a 2017 Limited. The wife loves the fact that the Sorento can be outfitted with 3rd row seats and I love the features for the price, notwithstanding great dealer support and warranty. Our previous Sorento's have always been dependable. I almost traded our 2014 for the 2016 but it was the 1st year of the re-tooling and dealers were getting MSRP pricing plus it didn't have auto braking with the front collision warning system. Our dealer had a great price on a brand new 2017 limited and we traded. I chose the limited for several reasons: to get some of the same features our 2014 EX had (such as ventilated front seats) we had to go to the limited trim. But I also liked all the other features the limited offered so we chose this trim level. You can't get any additional options on this trim level as they are all included, except for any extra dealer options (like a cargo net, mats, etc). There are a number of great features on this car. To begin with, the sound deadening glass and underbody makes for a really quite highway ride. The interior redesign is very functional. The power seat on drivers side has many new features on lumbar support and leg extension support at front of seat. The LCD display and Navigation/Audio/Bluetooth/Climate displays are much more user friendly. It seems there are on-screen prompts to almost all functions to help you. The audio system is outstanding. The menu choices have been broadened and are extensive: you can download Yelp, Pandora is included, SirusXM Traffic, Apple Car Play and Android Auto just to mention a few. You still have the UVO system (download POI's you create on your own Smartphone or PC and Parking Minder). We love the new Android Auto. You hook up your phone via USB and you basically have Google maps and voice support at your command via the car's system. The Lane change warning is a nice feature. You still have Blind Spot monitor which we loved on our 2014. Adaptive Cruise control is really neat. You set your cruise speed and if you come up on a slower vehicle your vehicle automatically adjusts its speed to the vehicle ahead until you move out of the lane and pass which time your car goes back to the speed you originally set. The surround view cameras give you front views, backup camera with obstacle warning and cameras on underside of each outside mirror give a computer generated image of a birds eye view of your car. This is nice when parking in a tight space you can see on the screen how you are fitting between two cars or other obstacles. There is an electric parking brake on the Limited which automatically releases as you drive forward. There is also a feature called Auto Hold which when activated allows you to take your foot off the brake when waiting in a line of cars at a light or a stop sign. Once you come to a complete stop the "auto hold" holds your car just as if you have your foot on the brake, but you can relax your foot and as you step on the accelerator to move forward it automatically releases (part of the electric parking brake system). The full ceiling panorama roof remains a great feature. And of course with the 2017 model you have auto braking in advance of a frontal collision situation. Haven't tested out that yet as no way to really simulate it in a situation without risking it not "seeing" the potential frontal crash. You also have 1 USB connection port and 2 additional USB charging ports as well as 3 12v ports and one 110v port. Sunshades are on the 2nd row windows, the V6 is the only engine to go with in my opinion, and in the Limited you have heated/cooled front seats and heated 2nd row seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Yes I know that is a lot of features which some are just 'luxury' items, but at $46,000 MSRP with most dealers discounting off that, you would be hard pressed to find another vehicle with V6 and 3rd row seats with all those features at such a good price.

Our new Kia Sorento is great

My Wife and I just purchased this Kia Sorento V6 AWD with the SX trim level in a beautiful red. This was a demonstrator with about 2800 miles on it so we got a great discount from the $45,000+ price. We originally were talking with the dealer about a lower EX trim level model but we were able to negotiate for this higher trim level at about the same price as the lower EX trim because it was a demonstrator. This is a fantastic car with the safety and technology packages on it. One of the coolest features is the smart cruise control which maintains the distance from the car in front of you even down to a full stop. The lane keeping alert is also very helpful. The UVo voice activation feature is nice so you don't have to take your eyes off the road to tune the radio or make a call. The ride is very comfortable and quiet even on rough roads and at high Interstate speeds. The leather power seats have multi position adjustments which are quite comfortable and these happen to be heated and cooled. The only nitpick is that there is no daytime running lights feature and the lights don't come on automatically with the wipers. Kia engineers should fix this. Otherwise this car is great. It gets high ratings from Consumer Reports, Kelly Blue Book and J D Power. The Kia warranty is an industry leader. The value Kia puts in this vehicle is tremendous. The features on this car can be had on vehicles twice the price. This is the first NEW car we have had in our 40 year marriage and we are very satisfied with it.

my best car yet

I did my research and test drove almost every mid-size SUV under $50,000. After a year of looking, I kept coming back to the Kia Sorento SX Limited AWD. It fits my needs like a glove made just for me. It's sporty, sexy, luxurious yet still has the power to tow 5,000 lbs and cargo space to help a friend move or bring lumber home from the hardware store. The Sorento has the best turning diameter out of all the SUVs - do a donut (slowly, of course) and feel the difference it makes turning into a parking space! I'm a little short and if I had two wishes to make it better - it would be to reduce the height of getting in and out of the vehicle and changing the driver's seat headrest, minor details for such an amazing SUV.

Love my KIA

This 2017 KIA replaces my 2012 KIA and is much improved over the 2012. The 2012 is the very first 4 cylinder that I had ever purchased and it exceeded my expectations for performance particularly speed increase. The 2017 is every bit as good if not better.

Well Worth the Money and RIVERSIDE KIA was Amazing and they were great to deal with, so with that said: PROS: Many PROS LIKE PRICE AND WARRANTY, STYLING IS VERY NICE, interior is pretty nice for the price, Headroom is good as I am 6' and it works well with my daughters car-seat :-) It has pretty good storage room but but could use a little more :-) CONS: A 3" SCREEN for Radio and CONTROLS ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!! You cannot see the screen most of the time due to the angle and glare from the sun/window it is HORRIBLE and I MEAN HORRIBLE come on KIA you can due much better then this!!! The sound system is OK nothing to brag about! ANOTHER BIG CON IS NO AUTOMATIC HEADLIGHTS and I forget to shut them off all the time thinking they will off automatically like most other older cars and most if not all NEW Cars! ANOTHER VERY POOR CHOICE ON KIA'S PART!!! FUEL ECONOMY is not that great right off the bat as I got the car with 8 miles on it and it now has over 600 but not over 700! I really have to watch what I am doing driving wise to get 19/20 around the city. I got the SUV on 8/31/2016 so most of my driving is around the city as I am retired :-) I REALLY LIKE THE SORENTO DESPITE MY CONS, WHICH MANLY ARE PET PEEVES AND KIA SHOULD HAVE DONE A LITTLE BETTER IN THESE AREA!

My 3rd Sorento!! And I love it...most of the time

My 2014 EX was a big jump up from my 2011 EX. My 2017 is an even bigger jump!! Great looking in and out! Drive is smooth and (mostly) quiet. Mostly everything has been improved over my 2014 (which I loved) except a couple of things. First, my 2014 was 100% free of squeaks, rattles, vibrations...noise. My 2017 has a couple of rattles on bumpy roads that can get a bit annoying. I get rattles with the sunroof but on very bumpy roads the rattles become vibrations and then it's very disappointing...like various sections of the roof get loud vibrations...kind of kills the ride. I also get a little bit of rattle coming from around where the center console meets the dash board. I took everything out of the car like coins, phone/GPS wires, other stuff to make sure it was not any of my loose stuff. Although not consistent...I did get rattles from that section on bumpy roads. So that "noise" is also disappointing and kind of ruins the ride...when it occurs. Everything else is fantastic with this car. I thought the 2014 was a little small (aesthetically) for my 6'4" tall frame...a little girly is how I put it. But, this 2017 which is only a few inches longer feels like it fits me much better and I feel great (cool) driving such a nice car that also seems manly for me to drive...while still being very stylish. This car looks great from all angles inside and out...very proud to drive it and be seen driving it. Except for the rattles...all other fit-and-finish seems high quality! Materials are all good. Everything is like you'd find on a more expensive model/brand....dear I say mid-entry level Mercedes. The only thing knocking this car down a peg or two is the rattles and vibrations...which is a big deal to me...especially since my 2014 had none. I also noticed that my cargo area doesn't seem to be as wide as my 2014. I would get my mountain bike and my dog crate side-by-side easily into my 2014. My 2017 those two items are squeezed right up next to each other...seems a few inches narrower than my 2014. On the other hand, it seems the cargo is a little deeper so that helps. Also, even though the 2017 V6 drives great (better than '14)...I do think that since it is heavier than the '14...Kia should seriously think about upping the V6 power by about 25hp and maybe get a 7 or 8 speed automatic like the competitors are doing. I do think my back up camera parking assist guides are not calibrated like my '14 was. I could drive my '14 backwards all over town just by looking at my dash video...the guides were very accurate. I knew if my guide lines were touching anything on my camera then I knew my car wasn't going to hit anything. It was excellent for parking backwards in tight spots and getting out of tight spots...I relied on it a lot...TRUSTED it! My '17 guideline seem off so I really have to rely on my mirrors to see the parking lines and be extra careful. If I just followed my camera I'd likely side-swipe cars parked next to me. The camera lines don't match up with the real parking lines...so that isn't cool. Might have to ask my dealer about that. So, overall, I'd give my 2017 a 4.5 stars and not a 5 because of the occasional rattles/vibrations (Kia should have ironed out for the 2017) and the backup camera guides aren't calibrated well...not as easy to park or get out of tight spaces as my '14. Otherwise...I LOVE my 2017 EX V6 Sorento!!

I did a lot of homework before my purchase. By far the Sorento has the best quality, interior, and technology. The navigation and blue tooth are very user friendly. In addition, the vehicle is so so quiet, it is hard to believe as there are extra insulation and acoustic glass. Kia engineers hit a home run on the build quality. The more I drive this vehicle the more I really enjoy it and can appreciate such great quality. Even the electric steering has great road feel, since Kia placed the motor on the steering rack. This is the first Kia I have owned and I never thought I would buy a Kia, but I am sold now. Kia hired an engineer from Audi and he has really upped the quality. I would put this crossover up against Lexus any day of the week. The front seats are very comfortable and supportive so you do not get driver fatigue. You will not be disappointed and you must include this vehicle on your short list if you are in the market.

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.

NOTE IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING TOWING WITH A 2017 SORENTO --- 2016 Kia Sorento AWD 6-cylinder with tow package: towing capacity 5000 lbs with tongue weight 500 lbs (Owner's Manual p. 5-104). 2017 Kia Sorento AWD 6-cylinder with tow package: towing capacity 5000 lbs with tongue weight 350 lbs (Owner's Manual p. 5-113). Separately, you might also be interested to know that to change the oil it is necessary to first remove a cover plate with 17 bolts before you can access the oil drain plug. Consequently, most will end up hacksawing an access hole in the cover.

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.

Love my new KIA except for one thing.

My new Sorento SX is loaded with goodies and I love it. The goodies are better designed and easier to operate than my Wife's new Lexus LS460. The nav. is much more "Americanized". The ONLY PROBLEM that I have is, I'm a big guy and the driver's seat if very uncomfortable due to the very hard bolsters. They are very hard and gives me hip pain when I sit in the seat. After much searching, I found a cushion that makes it much more comfortable to drive. It takes a little more effort to get seated as I have to try to adjust the cushion when I get in. I guess they design these seats for small Korean folks with small butts. If you have a large rear end, ya better be careful before buying this car.

Our 3rd Sorento - best yet!!

The V6 is very responsive. In general, the car feels sturdier and more solid than previous years. Gas mileage is better even though it is a V6 - averaging between 24 and 25 mpg. Great car, good value.

Overall, I think it is a great car, but it has one MAJOR flaw that upsets me. Being designed in Korea, most of the folks there are small and those seat bolsters hold them in place nicely I'm sure. Due to cancer meds, I have gained some weight and no longer have a little butt and as such the seat bolsters are very hard and jab me in the hips making it very uncomfortable. I didn't notice this during the test drive, but after the purchase and the 100 mile drive home I realized that I had made a bad decision to purchase this auto. If you don't have a big rear end, then this is a great car, but if your behind is above average, I suggest you not purchase this car. KIA should make the bolsters softer so that they don't jab a person in the hips. I mentioned the discomfort to the dealer and they indicated that they were sorry.

Third row carpet seam is easily visible and staples show even around the carpet mat. 2nd row would be better with captain chairs. There is not a lot of space to get into the back row seats.

Kia has outdone themselves with new Sorento. It's a perfect size crossover - huge trunk in 5 seater configuration and always available fairly comfortable 3rd row to haul up to 7 adults. Very blunt front and rear minimize exterior dimensions to assist in parking, while providing the same interior dimensions as much larger Highlander. Comfort on the top trim SXL is rivaling premium crossovers from Japanese and American carmakers. Compare Sorento with Lexus RX, Lincoln MKX or Acura MDX and you will find that Sorento matches them feature by feature, seat comfort, road noise isolation, technology and ride. All while costing $10K less MSRP. Considering that KIA & dealers are also providing very aggressive discounts from MSRP, you can easily save $15K by forgoing the prestige brand logo. Sorento's Adaptive Cruise Control is also considerably better then competition - keeping distance reliably and supporting full stop & go traffic where most of the competition cuts out below 15mph. Ride quality is excellent - assertive, yet soft enough to forget road imperfections. Acceleration for V6 Direct injection engine matched with 6-speed automatic is excellent too. Starting up hill or overtaking cars on the highway is piece of cake. Fuel consumption could be better, but at least the listed specs are very conservative. My V6 AWD trim is rated 17/23/19 combined and so far in the first 1,000 miles of mixed driving with plenty of traffic and AC on I am averaging 23mpg. 2017 model adds Adaptive headlamps that swivel in the curves to provide better illumination and Autonomous Emergency Breaking that keeps an eye on the traffic ahead and will apply brakes automatically if it feels that collision is imminent. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also come standard and greatly enhance available infotainment system. Otherwise 2017 is indistinguishable from 2016 redesign model. Huge panoramic sunroof goes beyond second row of seats and provides great sky views for passengers in all rows. My only pet peeve with it is that it is controlled by single lever. So if you want to just open blind, but leave the sunroof closed, you can't. Once you push the button to open the blind, the roof starts to open automatically and you need to go back and forth to achieve what you want. Another perplexing omission in US is absence of DRLs. There is an LED brow light on Sorento that acts as DRL in all regions outside US, but in US it is can not be turned on without full headlight. So you either drive with your lights off, or you need to turn on main headlights. It's a mystery why KIA decided to disable this feature in US.
