The Sorento covers acres of market territory with five trim levels that start with the $24,900 L and top out with the $41,300 SXL.
You'll still have to pay $1,200 for third-row seating on the $25,234 LX, but that's included as standard equipment, along with a bigger engine, if you upgrade to the $28,300 LX V6.
The mid-level $31,100 EX is where most buyers will find the right mix of price and features. It comes with a turbocharged 2-liter four-cylinder, and also offers six-cylinder power in the $31,700 EX V6. With either, you'll get standard leather upholstery and an upgraded climate control system.
It's a big price leap to the $37,900 SX V6, the turbocharged $39,900 SXL, and the SXL V6, but all are equipped like true luxury SUVs.
All-wheel-drive is available for about $1,800 on all trims except the base L. If you want seven-passenger seating, you'll need to choose a V6 model, where it's standard, or the LX, where it's optional; it can't be ordered at all on other four-cylinder Sorentos.
