Introduction

Kia applies a high standard to its cars. The 2014 Sorento boasted 80 percent new or re-engineered parts and content, including cosmetic changes, a new V6, new chassis, new electric steering, suspension revisions, improved braking, upgraded interior appointments, and new infotainment and telematics. Sorento will be all-new for 2016. So there aren’t many changes to the 2015 Sorento.

The Kia Sorento comes with Torque Vectoring Control (TVCC), for added stability in corners, and quicker electric power steering, with less than three turns of the steering wheel, lock-to-lock. The steering features an available Flex Steer system that offers drivers a choice of three steering modes: Comfort, Normal and Sport.

The 2015 Sorento was named the Best Family Vehicle by the Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA), during the annual Mudfest competition in Snoqualmie, Washington, in which we participated. More than 20 NWAPA automotive journalists evaluated vehicles on an autocross course as well as paved and moderate off-road routes during the two-day event.

The front and rear fascia are fairly low and wide, while the grille is enhanced by either anodized silver or black mesh, depending on the model. The lower valance has been opened to expose a cross-hatched intake, while LED positioning lamps create striking eyebrows over projector-style headlights in clear lenses. Available fog lights on all trim models are upended and pushed to the far corners of the front bumper for better forward and side visibility. Horizontally positioned rear LED combination lamps warmly embrace the turn signal and back-up lights. The Sorento rides on 17-, 18- and available 19-inch wheels.

Like every vehicle in this class, the Sorento is a unibody design, basically front-wheel drive with an all-wheel drive option. Although, because the Sorento is available as a three-row seven-seater, there are precious few cars in its exact class (Mitsubishi Outlander to name one). But in fact, the Sorento is in a class of its own. The Sorento’s list of standard and optional features goes well beyond the rest of the compact crossover crowd, and so can its price. But the affordable beauty of the Sorento is the well-equipped LX model.

Although Kia continues to offer the smaller Sportage, Kia places the Sorento in the compact crossover field, where it has a size advantage. The Sorento is substantially bigger and roomier than the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, Mazda CX-5, and Toyota RAV4, none of which offer a third row.

Comparing specs and the feel and quality of the car, we’d say the Sorento is most like the Acura RDX: about the same wheelbase, length, weight, second-row legroom, horsepower and torque from a smooth V6, and 6-speed auto transmission. Cost for a fully loaded model is about the same, nearly $40,000, but the big difference is that the Sorento is available in the LX model with fewer luxuries, for about $8000 less than the base Acura RDX.

The Sorento’s double-overhead-cam V6 engine made its initial appearance in the 2012 Hyundai Azera sedan. A V6 is a rare option among compact crossovers, although the Outlander too has a V6 available. Kia’s 3.3-liter V6 uses direction injection to produce 290 horsepower, and 252 pound-feet of torque.

Fuel economy for the 2015 Sorento with 3.3-liter V6 is an EPA-estimated 18/25 mpg City/Highway, 18/24 mpg with all-wheel drive. It comes with a 6-speed automatic. Regular gasoline is recommended for all models, a definite engineering plus, as many direct-injection engines today require Premium fuel. We put 764 miles on a 2015 Sorento SX AWD, and averaged a combined 24.1 mpg, beating the EPA estimate by a good bit.

Only the base Sorento LX comes with a four-cylinder engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic. It’s a 2.4-liter with GDI direct injection rated at 191 horsepower, 181 pound-feet of torque. It’s EPA rated 20/27 mpg City/Highway, 19/25 mpg with all-wheel drive. Although the V6 option adds $1600 to the bottom line, it doesn’t carry much of a fuel economy penalty, especially when all-wheel drive is ordered.

The one-year-old chassis features a subframe supporting the strut front suspension, stiffened front strut towers, larger bushings in the multilink rear suspension, and more high strength steel throughout the shell. Kia engineers cite an 18 percent increase in torsional rigidity, an area of chassis construction where more is always better, contributing to better handling and crashworthiness.

The Sorento has the feel of solid goods, with a goodly list of standard features even in basic LX editions.

Lineup

All 2015 Sorento models come standard with the 3.3-liter V6 except the 2015 Sorento LX, which comes standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. All models come with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive is optional.

Kia Sorento LX ($24,300) and LX V6 ($26,700) come standard with manual air conditioning, Tricot fabric seats with YES Essentials fabric treatment, 40/20/40 split-folding second-row seats, AM/FM/XM/CD/MP3 audio, USB jack, steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls, power windows with one-touch auto up and down, power locks with remote keyless entry, trip computer. Options are available for the Sorento LX to add many of the features found on higher trim levels.

Sorento EX ($31,700) upgrades with dual-zone climate control, leather seat trim (first and second rows), eight-way power adjustable driver seat with lumbar, 7-inch LCD driver information cluster, rearview camera, backup warning system, Blind Spot Detection System, UVO eServices Infotainment System, push-button start with Smart Key, automatic headlights, second-row sunshades, interior accent illumination, auto-dimming mirror with compass.

Sorento SX ($36,700) adds navigation system with 8-inch display, Sirius Traffic, Infinity audio system with 10 speakers, subwoofer and external amplifier, ventilated front seats, memory for driver’s seat and mirror position, stitched dash visor, stainless steel sill plate with illuminated scuff trim, four-way power passenger seat, voice command for UVO, FlexSteer, power liftgate, rear air conditioning, 115-volt outlet, HomeLink.

Sorento Limited ($39,900) upgrades to Nappa leather seat trim, leather-and-wood heated steering wheel, leather shift knob, second-row seat heaters.

All-wheel drive ($1800) and the third row seat package ($1000) are optional on all models.

Walkaround

The Sorento is the bigger of Kia’s two compact crossovers (the smaller one is the Sportage), sharing structural and powertrain elements with the Hyundai Santa Fe, which is available with two wheelbases, 106.3 inches for the two-row version and 110 inches for the three-row. The Sorento uses only the smaller wheelbase, even with its third row squeezed in. We think it enhances the package.

The Sorento’s front stance is wide but subtle, with the most visible distinction a new semi-circle of LED lights flanking each projector beam headlamp. A wide trough in the hood, between character lines at the edges, gives the Sorento a touch of macho. You enjoy these lines through the windshield. You can actually see the hood of your Sorento, unlike some steep-nosed crossovers.

Fog lamps (optional) are vertical and at the edges, enhancing the appearance of width. New for 2015 are LED turn signals, taillights and reverse lights.

Wheel/tire choices are unusually extensive. The basic Sorento LX comes with 7×17-inch wheels wearing 235/65R17 tires. The range also includes 18- and, for the first time, 19-inch aluminum alloys.

Interior

The Kia Sorento cabin is roomy, with lots of cargo capacity: 72.5 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded flat, and still almost 40 feet with the just the third row flat. The second row offers adjustability and decent leg room. It’s a 40/20/40, not the usual 60/40, making the Sorento a sweet four-passenger with easy access to the cargo area. The third row is cramped, but it works for a family with four or five kids. Sorento is the soccer mom’s delight.

The interior materials and design say quality. The dash is clean and handsome, and the instruments are easy to read. The chassis and body engineers have done a very good job of noise suppression, winning plaudits for the quiet cabin. We found the seats comfortable if not sporty, and widely adjustable. The seats in our SX had power lumbar, which helped to make it a wonderful road trip car.

The center stack is dominated by an eight-inch touch screen that’s home for the navigation system and infotainment. Kia calls it UVO eServices, and it includes a broad range of connectivity options.

We found the screen’s incessant messages annoying and distracting to our driving. We got sick of being told, Watching this screen while the vehicle is in motion can lead to a serious accident, and then being presented with unnecessary questions that had to be correctly answered and touched, to move forward with the navigation. That can lead to a serious accident.

Upper trim levels include upscale features such as ventilated leather power front seats, front and rear dual zone auto climate control, premium audio pushbutton starting, heated and ventilated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, second row sliding sunshades, illuminated door handle pockets, and a 115-volt power inverter.

Higher trim levels include a large power sunroof, with a power-operated shade, and Kia has added a programmable power rear liftgate.

The Sorento continues to offer the option of a three-row, seven-passenger configuration. However, adding the third row consumes a bit of cargo space and continues to be very snug in terms of third-row leg room. Kia and Mitsubishi are now the only players in this segment to offer a third-row option. Toyota bailed with the RAV4, due to lack of buyers. The Hyundai Santa Fe with 110-inch wheelbase offers a third row, but it is a longer vehicle.

Five-passenger models (with just two rows of seats) get a storage compartment under the rear cargo floor.

The Sorento offers a sonar-based blind spot monitor system, a first for Kia. Like other blind spot watch dogs, the system tracks vehicles lurking in the Sorento’s rear quarters and provides visual alerts, followed by audible warning if the driver begins to move into the occupied lane.

Driving Impressions

The Kia Sorento is marketed as a compact crossover utility, but is big and heavy by the standards of the class, with curb weights crowding two tons, so the Sorento scores lower EPA ratings than its competitors in that CUV class. The weight also steals from that wished-for nimble driving experience. We forget we’re talking about a seven-passenger vehicle here, so when you put nimble in that context, we’d say it’s way so.

At the least, we’d say it’s tight, and the ride is firm and compatible, without the jagged edges that you get in an Acura RDX, to which the Sorento compares favorably, in the handling department. The Flex Steer option conveys on-center tactility, particularly in Sport mode. After experimenting with all three settings, we left it in Sport, which made steering effort higher but handling more precise.

The brakes have gratifying power with excellent pedal feel and easy modulation.

We put 764 miles on our loaded Sorento SX AWD, including filling it with cargo on a northwest road trip in rainy fall weather, and it passed every test. The powertrain felt perfect, especially the smooth 6-speed automatic transmission, without paddles but not needed. The V6 engine’s torque makes silky acceleration all the way up to 6500 rpm, without transmission kickdowns; or else the kickdowns are so smooth you can’t feel them. The 3.3-liter doesn’t produce neck-snapping acceleration, but stoplight getaway and two-lane passing are excellent.

The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine in the base LX makes 191 horsepower, but they’re hard to find, even for us. Without driving one, we think the Sorento will make owners much happier with the V6. In the LX, it’s $2400 more with front-wheel drive.

Summary

The Kia Sorento is large for a compact crossover utility vehicles, which means it is roomy with lots of cargo capacity. Unless you need to carry six passengers, two of which must be small, the two-row version makes more sense. The engine, transmission and ride are all sweetly smooth. The cabin is quiet and classy. Sorento offers good value, especially in the LX model with fewer options.

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
