First launched in 2003, the Kia Sorento became a very different SUV after a 2011 redesign. The reason? In its second generation, the Sorento switched from truck-like body-on-frame design to car-like unibody construction. This means later Sorentos have more on-road refinement and less off-road capability than early Sorentos. It’s a tradeoff Kia customers welcomed.
The born again crossover appeals to a wide variety of drivers with an array of options including 6-cylinder power, and the versatility of available third-row seating.
