Colorado Review | 2019 KIA Sorento Overview

2019 KIA Sorento's Exterior

One standout exterior feature is the smart power liftgate. When your key comes in range of the vehicle, the liftgate automatically opens without having to wave your hands or feet. KIA automakers also gave this year's model a few exterior tweaks that will certainly turn heads in Colorado. The EX model trims get LED taillights while the SX and SXL trims get full LED headlights to match. The four cube-like fog lights from the KIA sportage have now made their way to the mid-sized crossover and both the front and rear bumpers have been sculpted to provide a more upscale look. You can choose larger wheels now. There are now options for 17, 18 and even 19-inch wheels. Although the upgrades are subtle, you can easily tell that KIA automakers are focused on elevating this vehicle from an already over-crowded segment.

2019 KIA Sorento's Interior

Perhaps the differences between the 2018 and 2019 models of the Sorento are most apparent on the interior. The Sorento was always a comfortable ride, but now it's more driver-friendly. Right away you'll notice the new steering wheel design, revised air vents, standard 7-inch touchscreen and new instrument cluster. Everything you need is within reach and streamlined for ease of access. That doesn't mean the passengers were left out of the equation. The new model has options for upscale Nappa leather and smooth to the touch upholstered surfaces. These upholstery options were specially-designed to dry quickly, reduce static cling, and eliminate odors. It can also be equipped with a panoramic power moonroof and dual zone climate controls. Be sure to contact Arapahoe KIA serving Denver Centennial Littleton Colorado for full details about all the interior options and model trims available.

2019 KIA Sorento's Mechanical / Powertrain

When placed under review, it's apparent that this isn't quite an off-road vehicle. Yet, with options for front and four-wheel drive in 2019, it's certainly versatile and willing to tackle some difficult Colorado roads. The turbo four cylinder engine is no longer available, but it will be replaced with a turbo diesel engine during the mid-cycle refresh. Currently, there is a 2.4 Liter inline four that gets 185 horsepower and 3.3 Liter V6 that can achieve 290 horsepower. Last year's six speed transmission has been updated with an even smoother eight speed automatic. It's the same transmission from the Cadenza sedan that provides a smooth ride with less bumps and hiccups along the way. If you want more information or have questions about the mechanical options for this vehicle, be sure to contact the dealer directly.
