Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Kia Sorento crossover finds a new look but the same mission: it’s the smaller hauler compared to the Telluride.

PROS
Better style
Available hybrid powertrains
Bigger interior
Telluride’s looks

CONS
What’s with the door tooth?
Is the second row more comfortable?
Not appreciably bigger

The all-new Sorento is expected to make its debut at the Geneva auto show in March. Disguised and undisguised spy photos and several official images of the Kia have given us a pretty good idea of what to expect from the redesigned mid-size crossover. Its boxier proportions and bolder styling mark a stark departure from the curvier and softer appearance of the current Sorento. The Korean automaker has also said that the next-gen model will ride on an all-new platform that helps make it bigger inside and out. It will also feature a hybrid powertrain as well as an eventual plug-in variant.

Changes are few to the 2020 Hyundai Nexo. The base Blue model gets a cargo cover and rear privacy glass, and the Limited gets rain-sensing wipers.

Pros
Impressive cruising range,
spacious interior,
lengthy warranty to back up the exotic technology.

Cons
Priced higher than normal crossovers,
dull to drive,
sparse California-only network of hydrogen stations.

A cargo cover and tinted rear glass are now standard on base Blue model.Automatic wipers added to Limited equipment.Part of the first Hyundai Nexo generation introduced for 2019.The 2020 Hyundai NEXO comes with front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 1-speed direct drive.

Pros
Promises 350-plus miles of range from a five-minute hydrogen fill-up
Smooth, silent and torquey drive qualities of an electric vehicle
SUV-like body style

Cons
Only available in select areas of California
Hydrogen availability is limited

By:

The Nexo was an all-new model for 2019, so the new decade brings with it minimal changes to the world's first dedicated hydrogen-powered SUV. The base model, named Nexo Blue, now includes a rear cargo cover and rear privacy glass, and the top-spec Limited model sees the addition of rain-sensing window wipers.

Pros
Good cruising range
Lots of space cabin space
Impressive warranty
Gives us a look into the future

Cons
New tech means high asking price
It's not the most entertaining to drive
Only practical to own in California
Reliability of new powertrain untested
