2025 Kia Sorento Hybrid

While Kia gave the gas-powered Sorento a facelift for the 2024 model year, the automaker waited until the 2025 model year to give the electrified versions of the SUV, the Sorento Hybrid and Sorento Plug-in Hybrid, the same facelift. With updated exterior designs and revised cabins, pricing for the 2025 Sorento Hybrid has, understandably, gone up. Pricing for the 2025 Sorento Hybrid EX will start at $40,065.

Compared to the 2024 model year, that represents an increase of $1,700. That’s a large price increase, but the 2025 Sorento Hybrid has received a facelift. All-wheel drive is available on the EX and carries a starting price tag of $41,865, which is $1,200 more than last year. Springing for the range-topping Sorento Hybrid SX Prestige, which comes with AWD as standard, costs $48,265. That represents a hefty increase of $4,100 from last year.

An extra $4,100 is a large increase compared to the 2024 model, but the 2025 Sorento Hybrid comes with more equipment. Standard features on the Sorento Hybrid SX Prestige trim include two 12.3-inch displays, heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, 14-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a heated steering wheel, and heated second-row seats.

With a starting price tag of $40,065, the 2025 Kia Sorento Hybrid costs more than the Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid ($38,345), but less than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid ($42,365), and Toyota Grand Highlander Hybrid ($46,415).

In addition to announcing pricing for the 2025 Sorento Hybrid, Kia has also confirmed pricing for the 2025 Sorento PHEV. The Sorento PHEV EX trim will start at $49,365, while the SX Prestige trim will cost $54,465. Both of these trims come with AWD. Last year, Kia offered the 2024 Sorento PHEV in a single SX Prestige trim that started at $51,665. Compared to 2024, pricing for the 2025 Sorento PHEV has gone up by $2,800.

There aren’t many other midsize SUVs on the market with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, but the addition of the 2025 Sorento PHEV EX trim makes it a good value option. The 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe PHEV costs $43,735, Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe is priced at $62,285, and Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV costs $51,840.

Both the 2025 Kia Sorento Hybrid and Sorento PHEV receive the same facelift as the gas-powered model from 2024. The electrified SUVs gain a more rugged design with an updated grille, new headlights, a revised front fascia, and new wheel designs. On the inside, the two SUVs have an updated dashboard, a new curved display that houses the digital instrument cluster and central display, and updated interior controls.
