Expert Rating

Not Available

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.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Kia Sorento

Matthew Keegan
Contributing Editor - November 7, 2020
  • 2020 Kia Sorentos available
  • Bonus: Up to $5,500 cash
  • Finance: From 0.0% for 75 months
  • Lease: From $229 for 36 months

Kia’s popular utility vehicle:

Kia’s second-largest utility vehicle is the Sorento, offering room for five to seven people. Previously, it was the largest model, but it has since lost that position to the all-new eight-passenger 2020 Telluride.

Dealers are stocking as many Sorentos as they can get from Kia so you shouldn’t have any trouble locating the one you want. The volume seller is the LX trim and it is the easiest one to find. When the 2021s arrive by year-end, we're expecting an all-new model. A hybrid variant will join the model line in 2021 followed by a plug-in hybrid in 2022.

Kia’s current offers are in place through November 30, 2020. We may see an update before Thanksgiving and Black Friday, so please check back.

Excellent cash offers for the taking:

Cash deals are in place for the 2020 Sorentos. Here, you'll find $4,500 on the four-cylinder models and $5,500 on the V6. These are fantastic offers for a midsize, three-row crossover utility vehicle.

Keep in mind you cannot combine these deals with promotional financing.

Zero-percent promotional financing:

Purchase a 2020 Sorento and you’ll find 0.0-percent APR financing for 75 months and 1.9-percent for 84 months. These are excellent offers!

Our recommendation is for customers to take the cash offer and shop for low-rate financing, including non-promotional options with Kia or the best deal you can find with your bank or credit union.

Consider these lease offers:

There are several lease offers in place for the Sorento. We're tracking four of them.

Choose the 2020 Sorento LX 2.4 FWD and you’ll pay $229 per month for 36 months with $3,499 due at signing. Your effective monthly cost is $326. This is a competitive offer. Choose the AWD model and your monthly payment rises by $20.

Kia also has offers on the LX V6 models. Choose the front-wheel-drive model and your monthly payment is $289. Select the all-wheel-drive version and you’ll pay $309 per month. Both offers require $3,499 due at signing. The monthly cost of ownership for these two models is $386 and $406, respectively.

Kia provides a mileage allowance of 12,000 miles per year. At the end of the lease term, you’ll pay a $400 termination fee.

2021 Kia Sorento: Model Preview

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor

Model Preview

The third-generation Kia Sorento hit showrooms in the 2015 model year, and it’s remained mostly unchanged since. That ends with the 2021 Sorento, which will boast an all-new look, an updated powertrain, and more.

The Kia Sorento has long been a mixture of minivan and SUV styling. The 2021 Sorento will push the design needle toward SUV with a bolder tiger-nose grille, a longer and flatter hood, stronger body lines, and a more upright stance. The 2021 Kia Sorento will also have wider wraparound LED headlights, rugged body cladding, a more aggressive lower front bumper, and vertically oriented taillights.

Inside, the 2021 Kia Sorento will feature a flexible cabin with 4+2 or 5+2 seating and best-in-class passenger room. The interior will also boast an all-new look with an upright dash, chunky three-spoke steering wheel, large dash-top infotainment screen, a stubby gear shifter, available quilted leather seats and open-pore wood trim, and more. As for tech, the 2021 Sorento will offer an available 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, up to eight USB ports, an 8- or 10.25-inch touchscreen, available SiriusXM, available 12-speaker Bose sound system, optional wireless phone charger, and more.


Kia Sorento

Under its hood, the all-new 2021 Sorento will get four powertrain options: two standard powertrains and two hybrids. The base powertrain will be a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 191 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive. Next will be a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 281 hp and 311 lb-ft of torque paired with an eight-speed wet dual-clutch transmission, and mated to front or all-wheel drive.

The Sorento Hybrid will feature a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine paired to a 44-kW electric motor with a 1.5-kWh battery for a combined 227 hp. The 2021 Sorento Plug-In Hybrid will bump the electric motor to 66.9 kW and the battery to 13.8 kWh for a combined 261 hp and an estimated 30-mile EV range. Both hybrids will use a six-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid will come standard with front-wheel drive, and the plug-in model will have standard all-wheel drive.

We won’t know about its official safety ratings until the IIHS and NHTSA start tossing 2021 Sorentos against walls, but we do know it’ll have a long list of standard and available safety gear. The standard safety gear will include speed-limit sign recognition, forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, driver attention warning, lane-keeping assist, and more. Optionally, buyers can add cyclist detection, blind-spot collision avoidance, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance, and more.

Pricing & Release Date

Kia expects to have the 2021 Sorento in showrooms in late 2020.

Pricing on the 2021 Kia Sorento will range from $30,560 to $43,760 (destination fees included).

This three-row crossover will compete with the Dodge Durango, Ford Explorer, and Honda Pilot.
