Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

All-new plug-in hybrid model

Pros
Impressive number of standard and optional features
Lots of second- and third-row legroom for the class
Sharp-looking and easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons
Not as compact as the last-generation Sorento

A plug-in-hybrid model joins the Sorento lineup for the 2022 model year. Its powertrain combines a turbocharged four-cylinder and six-speed automatic transmission with an electric motor for a total system output of 261 horsepower. All-wheel drive is standard, and Kia claims the plug-in Sorento has a combined fuel-economy rating of 79 MPGe and an electric-only range of 32 miles. While we don't know how much the PHEV variant will cost, we know it'll be offered in two top-tier trims: SX and SX-P.

Pros
Looks classy and rugged inside and out,
lots of powertrain options,
pleasant to drive,
and comfy to ride in.

Cons
Adults should avoid the third row,
bigger touchscreen skips wireless smartphone mirroring,
cargo space can be compromised.

Infiniti expands the 2020 QX50 lineup with two new trim levels and newly standard equipment. The Sensory and Autograph models now top the QX50 pyramid with the most desirable features. Every version now has driver assists that include automatic high-beams, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, rear automated emergency braking, and rear cross-traffic alert. The QX50's infotainment system adds the latest software along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Likewise, the lineup gains some fresh and reshuffled option packages.

Pros
One-of-a-kind engine, indulgent interior, generous cargo space.

Cons
Disappointing fuel efficiency, engine can be noisy, top models get top content.
