Love my Sorento! Great seating and features

I've had my car for about 7 months and in that time I haven't had any issues with my Sorento. It starts consistently, even in very cold temperatures (-10 F) during the winter. I am especially pleased with the handling in the snow. The AWD is great for gripping slippery roads and it doesn't get bogged down in 6-12' if a road has not been plowed yet. This vehicle is extremely comfortable. My husband and I (6'3' and 5'10') have plenty of leg, head and shoulder room, and have no problem going for a drive a few hours away. The drivers seat has full power adjustment - front/back, up/down. And the steering wheel also manually adjusts so you can get everything just right. We have a car seat installed in the middle of the back seat and have no trouble moving our seats into any position. The backseat is roomy and comfortable for an adult. Optional third row seating is easy to use, although would be better suited for children to use as the legroom is limited. The backup camera is easy to use and very large. I like hooking up my phone via Apple CarPlay, but I wish it could be used via Bluetooth not just USB. Overall, a smooth, comfortable ride with great features at a very affordable price. Great value for the money.

Great small to midsize family vehicle!

Our 2018 Kia Sorento has been a perfect fit for our family. We have a family of five, 2 of which are in booster seats, and one in a car seat. Due to the size of our family, having the third row was a must due to the Sorrento's compact size. We haven't experienced any issues mechanically or other thus far. It handles great and drives incredibly smooth in the city as well as the highway. A great feature is being able to switch between different drive modes (regular, eco, etc...). The best feature, and truly why we decided to purchase the 2018 Sorrento is its stellar safety rating.

Kia Sorento is a comfortable ride.

I bought the car in July of 2018. The oil has been changed and I take the car in for check ups. So far everything is great. I bought it because it seats 7 people. The only problem the car has had is moving the seats forward to use the rear seat. The car is extremely reliable. It has a camera in the back for backing up. The seats are comfortable for long drives. Lots of rear storage room. The computer system tells you if there is a problem anywhere, including a low tire. Nice stereo, the car turns on a dime. It has four wheel drive. Handles well in snow.

Sorento, choose family and comfort!

I absolutely love my Sorento! I love that it is a family car (that is not a van). It has the option of 3rd row seating, which is must when you have a big family. It feels sturdy and safe. I feel like it drive nice and smooth, no shaking or extra sensation of bumps. I love the features it comes with, and the available upgrade options; winters with heated seats a must now. Very reliable car. We haven't had any issues, thus far, with our Sorento. The trunk is very spacious and easy to keep organized. I love how well our kids car seats fit as well.

Kia Sorento is a great family car!

I love my car! It has a great amount of space for a family of four. There's an optional third row for when my kids' friends or my in-laws are with us. When the third row is not in use there's a ton of space for groceries. It drives smoothly. My only issue is that because we purchased a less expensive model it doesn't have some luxury features like an automatic opening of the back hatch, but we knew that and it was our choice.

Kia Sorento: A Great Bang for Your Buck

This vehicle is dependable and reliable and gets great gas mileage (almost 400 miles on a full tank). The seats are very comfortable and easily adjustable. One thing that would be nice in this vehicle would be a third row of seating, but that is a minor detail, and the trunk space in this vehicle makes up for this lack of a third row of seats.

Plush! White and tan line Sorento!

It's a great car! Good on gas, very smooth ride very reliable also very affordable. My car is white with tan interior and the seat are super soft nice large sunroof and a bunch of gnarly features. Road trips are a breeze in my car with the cruise control and automatic sensors that slow the car down when they see the traffic slow down.

Family friendly midsize SUV 2018 Kia Sorento

My vehicle is a 4 door mid size SUV perfect for my family with 2 car seats for both toddlers and plenty of trunk space for my dogs, groceries or anything else. I've had no issues with the vehicle outside of a tire issue due to nails in my driveway deflating tires. Overall it is a good vehicle that fills my needs.

Purple spacious Kia Sorento Lx

I recently just got my Kia Sorento and my family really loves it. The seats are very comfortable and there's enough room for my family. The car also has a good gas mileage. Some of the features in my car are Bluetooth, cloth seats, review cameras, power mirrors, power locks, cruise control, And side airbags.

- Kayla M

The vehicle can fit up to 7 people, which is awesome for our big family.

it is very spacious and is great for my family when we go on long road trips. The only problem is small and unnoticeable: If you are tall like me, it is a little more difficult to enter the back seat. For people who pack a lot, with the back seat up the trunk is quite small, but that is not a problem for us.
