Why Buy the 2018 KIA Sorento

With the Sorento, KIA Motors has been able to provide one of the top vehicles in the highly competitive midsize crossover SUV market. That's because it is an enviable blend of style and substance; it has a sleek exterior profile, provides a multitude of configurations, earns top safety scores, is loaded with standard features, and has one of the most generous warranties in the market. For 2018-at the tail end of the nameplate's third generation of production-the SUV has no major changes. It is split into seven trims: L, LX, LX V6, EX 2.0T, EX V6, SX, and SX Limited.

Standard exterior features on the SUV include heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, projector beam headlights with auto light control, a rear spoiler, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The LX is where the vehicle gets silver-finished low-profile roof rails. Upgrading to the EX 2.0T introduces power-folding ability on the mirrors, a smart power liftgate, fog lights, and 18-inch alloys. On the SX, there is reverse tilt-down ability on the mirrors, a panoramic power sunroof, LED combination rear lamps, roof rails with a chrome finish instead of silver, 19-inch wheels, and jewel-type LED positioning lights above the headlights for an extra dash of style. Only the SX Limited has high-intensity discharge headlights with dynamic bending light technology, LED fog lights (instead of bulb-type halogen ones) 19-inch chrome wheels.

For leather upholstery, 10-way power adjustability and 2-way power lumbar support on the driver's seat, and heating on the front seats, you will need to upgrade to at least the EX 2.0T. At the SX trim level (i.e., SX and SX Limited), the vehicle is further upgraded with 14-way driver-seat power adjustability and 4-way power lumbar support, as well as a driver-seat memory system. The SX Limited stands apart with its Nappa leather seats, front-seat cooling capability (in addition to heating), and second-row heating capability. For comfort and convenience, the nameplate starts out with features such as six-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio, SiriusXM® satellite radio service, Bluetooth® wireless technology, and remote keyless entry. Upgrading to at least the EX 2.0T adds Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ for smartphone-based control, a 7-inch TFT color LCD display, dual-zone automatic climate control, auto-dimming ability on the rearview mirror, HomeLink® for remote-controlling garage doors, a smart key system with push-button engine start, and UVO infotainment integration with a 7-inch touchscreen.

Mechanical / Powertrain - Request More Information

The standard engine on the 2018 KIA Sorento is 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine, which produces 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. The "2.0T" designation is for the EX 2.0T being powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter I4 with 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The top-tier engine is the 3.3-liter V6, which produces 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque; it is present on the aptly-named LX V6 and EX V6, as well as the SX and SX Limited. Each engine is paired with an electronically controlled 6-speed automatic transmission, which has a Sportmatic™ gear shifter to simulate the excitement of a manual gearbox. Although front-wheel drive is standard, you can opt for an all-wheel-drive system if you go with the LX or higher. An independent suspension-consisting of a MacPherson strut design in the front and a multi-link design in the back-provides cushioning from the turbulence generated by less-than-smooth driving surfaces. And motor-driven power steering provides sharp, precise turning and cornering.

Safety - Why Buy with Safety Features

For cushioning and safety, the SUV has dual front airbags, dual side impact airbags, and dual side curtains that flank all rows. Also standard are electronic stability control, traction control, a rearview camera, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist, and hill start assist. On the EX 2.0T and above, advanced safety features such as a rear parking assist system, blind-spot detection, and rear cross-traffic alert. Only the SX Limited comes with smart cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, an electronic parking brake, and a surround-view camera, which supplants the regular rearview one.
