2018 Kia Sorento Review
The Kia Sorento is a bit bigger than your average 5-seater car, but not quite as big as a three-row, seven-seater vehicle. It’s that special something for drivers looking for the ideal crossover SUV—something not too big and not too small, but just right. In fact, it’s configurable for either five or seven passengers, making it supremely practical while staying peppy and fun to drive.
It’s got solid interior quality, and plenty of features for discerning drivers across the Philadelphia and West Chester areas. If you’re wondering whether the Sorento holds up against its competitors, it certainly does—with more standard features this year, as well as the best warranty on the market, it might be time to check out a Kia.
Kia Sorento Features and Options
Available in several trim levels, the 2018 Kia Sorento also has three different options for engines:
- 2.4L I-4 engine: 185 horsepower/178 lb-ft of torque
- 3.3L V6 engine: 290 horsepower/252 lb-ft of torque
- Turbocharged 2.0L engine: 240 horsepower/260 lb-ft of torque
Although the engines deliver substantial power, they also are quite fuel-efficient, with an EPA-estimated 21 city/28 highway MPG.1 By blending power with efficiency, you can wave bye to the gas stations as you cruise down the highway.
The Kia Sorento is as tech-savvy as it is fuel-efficient, with a suite of standard features to keep you entertained on your commutes and road trips. Some standard features include a 4.3-inch touchscreen display, a 6-speaker sound system, a rear camera display, and Bluetooth® connectivity. By upgrading, you can unlock even more available features, such as the UVO infotainment system. This advanced technology system utilizes voice-command navigation, SiriusXM Traffic®, and an 8-inch color touchscreen, so you can keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road as you discover new routes.
However, the 2018 Sorenta is also a safety-oriented vehicle, too. It comes equipped with several standard safety features, such as:
- Electronic Stability Control, for improved directional stability and vehicle control.
- Brake Assist System, for enhanced safety when it detects an emergency braking situation.
- Hill Start Assist Control, for an added measure of security when moving from a stop on a hill.
