Recently redesigned for its fourth generation, the boldly stylish Kia Sorento is a standout among three three-row family movers, with a roomy and refined cabin, versatile cargo options, and lots of standard and available tech. It offers comfortable seating and a pleasantly smooth ride, plus it's available in numerous powertrain configurations, including a potent turbo-four, an efficient hybrid, and a PHEV with an EPA-estimated 32 miles of electric range. It's an excellent option for Fall River families who like the Kia Tellurides style and accommodations but want something with smaller space requirements. Here's a quick look at a few notable highlights.

Powertrain Options

Sorento S and EX models are powered by a competent 2.5-liter four-cylinder (191 horsepower, 181 pound-feet of torque) paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, with torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive available across the lineup. EX, SX, and SX Prestige models at a turbocharger, boosting output to 281 hp and 311 lb-ft.

The Sorento Hybrid combines a 1.6-liter turbo-four with an electric motor (227 hp, 258 lb-ft) for increased power and efficiency, achieving EPA-estimated combined ratings of 37 and 35 mpg for FWD and AWD models, respectively.

If you're interested in experiencing the world of EVs but aren't ready to commit fully to battery power, the Kia Sorento Plug-in Hybrid is a great stepping stone. A larger electric motor boosts horsepower to an all-wheel-driving 261, and a 14-kWh battery enables an EPA-estimated electric-only range of ~32 miles.

Interior and Tech

The Kia Sorento offers classy and impressively roomy accommodations for first and second-row passengers, with 38.5 cubic feet for cargo behind the second row. It also provides the added practicality of a third row, making it ideal for Taunton families who need the additional seats but not the increased space requirements of a larger three-row model.

Sorento comes nicely equipped across its lineup, with standard features like reclining rear seats, a one-touch slide-and-fold second-row, and an 8-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The base trim also features advanced driver aids like Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping and Lane Following Assist, and Driver Attention Warning with Leading Vehicle Departure Alert.

And by stepping up just one trim level, Swansea drivers can enjoy a bevy of appealing upgrades, including:
