    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2016 Kia Sorento OVERVIEW

    The Kia Sorento has always been generously sized for a compact crossover, and the latest redesign pushes it even further toward midsize. Given its seven-passenger capacity and available V6, the new Sorento can be a legitimate alternative to larger vehicles costing thousands more.

    What's New for 2016

    The Kia Sorento has been completely redesigned.

    Choosing Your Kia Sorento

    The Sorento enjoys a more sophisticated look and feel this year, thanks in large part to upgraded interior materials and a stronger body structure. The second row slides and reclines for the right mix of passenger and cargo room. Third-row seating is standard with the V6 but unavailable on four-cylinder models. With all rows folded, the Sorento can handle up to 74 cubic feet of cargo, enough space to be competitive with midsize crossovers.

    • The engine roster starts with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that produces 185 horsepower.
    • The newly available turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder offers a boost to 240 horsepower, an increase that should be really noticeable in everyday driving.
    • The top choice is a 3.3-liter V6 that achieves 290 horsepower.

    All engines run with a six-speed automatic transmission and can be paired with all-wheel drive. Selectable driving modes (Sport, Normal, Eco) allow the driver to tweak transmission performance and steering effort. It's worth noting that a V6 Sorento with all-wheel drive can tow up to 5,000 pounds, capability that no compact crossover can match.

    While all-wheel drive is available on all models, the engine and seating configuration of your Sorento will be determined by the trim level:


    Carries the 2.4-liter engine and five-passenger seating, plus 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth phone and audio, LED running lights and satellite radio.


    Builds on the L with automatic headlamps, an acoustic windshield, a rearview camera, and Kia's infotainment and app interface known as Uvo eServices. The Convenience package adds heated front seats with driver power, rear parking sensors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an auto-dimming mirror. Models so equipped are eligible for a third row. The LX V6 adds the V6 engine and third-row seating.


    Comes with the 2-liter turbo and the contents of the Convenience package as standard, plus leather seating for five passengers, dual-zone automatic climate control, acoustic front side glass and 18-inch wheels. The EX V6 adds the V6 engine and third-row seating.

    The available Premium package tacks on a hands-free power liftgate, power-folding mirrors, keyless access and ignition, rear sunshades, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Models with the Premium package are also eligible for the Touring package, which adds luxuries like a panoramic sunroof, navigation with real-time traffic data, a larger touchscreen interface and a 10-speaker Infinity sound system.

    SX V6

    Gets the V6 and third-row seating plus the contents of the Premium and Touring packages as standard, plus driver memory, upgraded steering, 19-inch wheels, LED taillamps, additional exterior trim and a fabric headliner.


    Tops off the Sorento with chrome wheels, upgraded leather upholstery, ventilated front seats and heated second-row seats. Exclusive to the Limited is the Technology package with a surround-view parking camera, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, xenon headlamps and an electronic parking brake. The Limited V6 swaps out the 2-liter turbo for the V6 engine and adds third-row seating.

    CarsDirect Tip

    There's a substantial $16,000 spread between base MSRPs for an L and a Limited V6 -- if you want space for seven and lively acceleration, we recommend splitting the difference with a carefully optioned EX V6.
