If you’re looking for a capable, convenient, and comfortable two- or three-row-crossover conveyance, the Kia Sorento is a solid choice. Once you’ve settled on the Sorento, however, the choices don’t end there. Seating for either five or seven, three engines, and both front- and all-wheel-drive variants mean there’s a Sorento for every taste.

Pros

The 2018 Land Rover Range Rover ranked #4 in Luxury Large SUVs. Currently the Land Rover Range Rover has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 36 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Legendary off-road ability
Cushioned ride
Roomy, posh cabin
Powerful engines

Cons
Cumbersome infotainment system
Less cargo space than competitors
High price

By: 
usnews.com

For 2018, a number of minor design tweaks have been made to the exterior and interior. Most notably the interior ditches a lot of knobs and buttons in favor of a second touchscreen. New, top-of-the-line seats are available, and the SVAutobiography Dynamic trim gets a slight bump in horsepower.

PROS
Excellent balance of off-road ability and luxury
A wealth of interior and exterior options for customizing
Long-wheelbase variant provides additional rear legroom
Available with a diesel engine

CONS
Standard engine's modest power may disappoint
Capability means compromise, and highway steering may be too heavy for some
Large wheels can bring vibration and noise into the cabin at highway speeds
