Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2016 Kia Sorento grows a little bit larger, and grows up a lot.Though the Kia Sorento has been completely redesigned and re-engineered for 2016, it looks like the exterior only modestly evolved. The 2016 model is both significantly roomier and more refined in nearly every way.
There’s some meaningful change all around the 2016 Kia Sorento actually, with every bit of sheet metal and every piece of trim changed. A new body structure, an available turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, and redesigned seating—plus some new active-safety features—add up to tremendously meaningful change once you take it all in.

Pros
Composed, quiet ride
Responsive, economical new 2.0T
Impressive interior trims
Tight, "vault-like" feel

Cons
Short, bench-like second-row seats
Third row not available with turbo four
Limited availability of active safety features

The Kia Sorento is fully redesigned for 2016 and ranks in the middle among midsize SUVs based on the professional reviews and data that drive our rankings. Professional automotive critics generally agree that the Sorento has an appealing mix of interior comfort and technology, but its base engine is underpowered. It also gets excellent safety ratings within its class.

Pros
Accurate steering and composed handling
Premium cabin materials
Zippy engine options
Lots of available safety features

Cons
Weak base engine
Price can climb quickly

By:

The Kia Sorento is bigger, more sophisticated and better to drive for 2016, making it an appealing alternative to five- and seven-passenger SUVs that were previously a class above it. Kia's midsize crossover is definitely worth a long look.

pros
User-friendly controls
Well-made and attractive cabin
Versatile second-row seat
Ample features for the money
Long warranty
Excellent crash test scores.

cons
Turbo engine isn't as punchy and efficient as expected
Less spacious than most seven-passenger competitors.
