Introduction

Redesigning for the 2016 model year gave Kia’s largest crossover SUV an elegant new look. Though more generic than distinctive in appearance, the reworked Sorento fits in the heart of the crossover category.

Detail changes mark the 2018 model year, starting with enhanced headlight performance and revised front headrests. A rearview camera and automatic headlights now are standard on the base model. LX trim gains a standard third-row seat, when equipped with all-wheel drive. EX models add a hands-free power liftgate, and the EX V6 gains autonomous emergency braking.

Especially in EX trim with the turbocharged engine, the Sorento incorporates all the typical crossover-SUV characteristics. An upscale, substantial overall feel is matched by a well-damped ride and a broad choice of configurations.

Five trim levels are available: L, LX, EX, SX, and SX-L (Limited). In base L and step-up LX models, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine makes 185 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque. EX trim upgrades to a 2.0-liter turbo four that develops 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet. Both engines mate with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

L and front-drive LX models have two-row seating. Others contain three rows for seven-passenger capacity.

Though it’s more powerful, generating 290 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque, Kia’s V6 engine, also driving a 6-speed automatic, feels less enthusiastic than the turbo four. Optional all-wheel drive includes a locking center differential.

Crash-test scores rank highly in the crossover SUV category. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has named the 2018 Sorento a Top Safety Pick+, with Good scores in each crash test. However, the “plus” designation applies only to top models with V6 engines, whose HID xenon headlights have been rated Acceptable. Sorentos with autonomous emergency braking promise Superior frontal crash protection.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given the 2018 Sorento five stars overall, along with five-star ratings for both frontal and side impacts.

Some of the latest safety technology is available, either optional or standard on upper models. All Sorentos have a rearview camera and Bluetooth connectivity. Advanced safety features that can be fitted into most trim levels include adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring.

Lineup

Optima L ($25,800) comes with the base 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, front-wheel drive, two-row seating, remote keyless entry, cloth upholstery, 6-speaker CD audio, satellite radio, Bluetooth, heated power mirrors, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a rearview camera. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.) All trim levels except L can be equipped with all-wheel drive.

Optima LX ($27,100) adds rapid-charge USB ports, an acoustic-glass windshield, and a roof rack. All-wheel drive ($2,790) includes three-row seating.

Optima LX V6 ($29,500) substitutes the V6 engine and has three-row seating. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available ($1,800).

Optima EX ($33,000) comes with the 2.0-liter turbo, front-drive, two-row seating, 18-inch wheels, leather seat trim, heated power front seats, dual-zone climate control, power liftgate, rear parking assist, and blind-spot detection. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is included. All-wheel drive is optional ($1,800).

Optima EX V6 ($34,100) substitutes the V6 engine and has three-row seating. All-wheel drive is optional ($1,800).

Optima SX V6 ($39,100) adds a panoramic sunroof, 10-speaker Infinity audio, 10-way power driver’s seat, 19-inch wheels, and navigation with an 8.0-inch touchscreen. All-wheel drive is optional ($1,800).

Optima SX-L Limited V6 ($44,400) comes with forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, surround-view camera, xenon headlights, and Nappa leather. All-wheel drive is optional ($1,800).

Walkaround

In its current form, the Sorento conveys a sense of balance. Standing well ahead of previous Sorentos, the look is neatly elegant. Smooth sheetmetal edges create a handsome profile. Nothing is excessive.

Up front, the Sorento’s grille, though prominent, is less exaggerated than on some crossover vehicles. Body panels are softly sculpted, accented at corners by LED lighting, with appropriate yet restrained levels of chrome.

Interior

Modification of the cabin as part of the 2016 reworking propelled Sorento forcefully up the sophistication scale. Soft-touch plastic trim and supple front-seat upholstery help give the impression of a luxury SUV. The cockpit comes across as polished and well-organized.

Controls are grouped into logical, enclosed zones on the wraparound dashboard. Front seats are sculpted effectively, similar to those found in premium makes. Cushions are marvelously supportive, augmented by extendable thigh supports.

Second-row seating is less impressive. Three occupants fit, but sit low. Contouring of bottom cushions isn’t sufficient for adults, and the ill-shaped bench is short on support. With a panoramic roof, headroom is scant.

Second-row seatbacks fold to ease access to the third row, which is roomier than some. Climbing back there isn’t too tough, but legroom could be better.

Cargo space is adequate but far from vast. Volume totals 38 cubic feet with the third row folded, shrinking to 11.3 cubic feet with all seatbacks up.

Driving Impressions

Occupants can expect an impressive sense of solidity, amplified by highly composed handling capabilities. Electric power steering is nicely tuned, allowing faithful tracking on the highway. Brakes modulate easily. As a result, the Sorento delivers an admirably fluid driving feel.

Ride quality is well-controlled, resulting in a quietly poised highway experience, matched by satisfying levels of confidence.

Well-behaved powertrains can deliver frisky acceleration, especially with the turbo engine, marred by just a touch of turbo lag. The turbo works well with Kia’s automatic.

A V6 Sorento feels strong when starting from a standstill, followed by undramatic acceleration to road speed. Although the automatic transmission generally shifts smoothly, some “shift shock” may occur with the V6.

Kia’s Drive Mode Selector has Eco, Comfort, and Sport modes. Transmission shift points and steering are altered, but the rather sensitive engine throttle is not.

Even though an all-wheel-drive Sorento is no hardened off-road machine, 7.3-inch ground clearance permits a fair amount of potential after the pavement ends. A lockable differential keeps front/rear power split at 50/50. Electronic torque-vectoring can apply brakes as needed to help the Sorento steer more accurately.

Fuel economy is reasonably good, though not exactly frugal. With front-drive and the 2.4-liter engine, the Sorento is EPA-rated at 21/28 mpg City/Highway, or 24 mpg Combined. Turbo power is EPA-rated at 20/27 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined, with front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive drops the estimate to 19/27/22 mpg.

With the V6, an all-wheel-drive Sorento is EPA-rated at only 17/23 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined. A front-drive V6 manages 18/25/20 mpg.

Summary

Even the base L edition is amply-equipped, with some options available. All Sorentos yield a solid upscale feel, as passengers enjoy a quiet cabin and a nicely-controlled ride. Best powertrain choice is the responsive turbo four-cylinder, which is significantly thriftier than the V6.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

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.
