Cutting-Edge Technologies Found in the Kia Sorento

The 2019 Kia Sorento is filled with tons of features that'll make the biggest technophile happy. It comes standard with a UVO play infotainment system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ functionality. Plug your phone into the vehicle's USB port, and you can send texts, listen to audio books, and more, without needing to touch your phone while driving.

A navigation system is available, which uses voice command and shows your maps on a crisp 8-inch color touchscreen. Plus, with SiriusXM® Traffic, you'll get real-time highway conditions to help you get to your destination as quickly as possible.

Furthermore, the Sorento offers lots of driver-assisting technologies to help you get from point a to point b safely. This includes things like Forward Collision Warning and Blind Spot Collision Warning. It also includes Driver Attention Warning, which will provide alerts if it senses that your attention level has significantly dropped.

Sorento Interior Space

Not only does the Kia Sorento have all kinds of high-tech features, it can also accommodate lots of people.

It seats seven among three rows, with plenty of room in each one, as shown by the following interior dimensions:

  • First-row headroom/legroom: 39.5 inches/44.1 inches
  • Second-row headroom/legroom: 39.3 inches/39.4 inches
  • Third-row headroom/legroom: 36.3 inches/31.7 inches
  • Passenger volume: 154.2 cubic feet

There's plenty of cargo room inside this midsize SUV, too, with 73 cubic feet behind the first row. Plus, with 40/20/40 split-folding second-row and 50/50 split-folding third-row seats, there are lots of ways to fit items while still leaving room for some backseat passengers.

Kia Sorento Performance Specs

The final thing we'll go over in this Kia Sorento review is the performance. If you often take your family along for drives around town, then you'll appreciate how comfortable this SUV's ride is. It feels nice and smooth over rough roads and has composed handling.

It can tow up to 5,000 pounds, which is great for a vacation to the beach or mountains. Plus, if you're taking a trip to the mountains, then you'll love the available all-wheel drive system.

Dynamax™ AWD will continually monitor conditions to help determine when extra traction is needed. If the road is slicker than normal, the system will distribute power between the front and rear wheels to help prevent you from losing control.

Another performance feature that you're sure to appreciate is the impressive fuel economy. When equipped with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and 6-speed automatic transmission, the vehicle achieves an EPA-estimated 22 city/29 highway MPG.1

As a result, you can get to any destination, any time of year, without needing to make frequent stops at the gas station.
