Stylish and high-class interior
Extra-long warranty coverage

CONS
Base four-cylinder engine is underpowered
Third-row seat is strictly for kids
Less cargo space than other three-row models

The 2019 Kia Sorento is a right-sized, well-priced three-row crossover SUV for those who can skimp a little on third-row space.

Pros
Upmarket feel inside and out
Terrific ride quality
Responsive, natural steering
High value
Solid, quiet feel

Cons
Second row sits too low
Turbo-4 engine bites the dust for 2019
Don’t bother with the base engine

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Seating comfort
UVO multimedia system
Cargo room
Wireless phone charging added
Wide array of available convenience features
Quiet cabin

Cons
Steering feel
Eco mode
Sport mode is very harsh

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is a sharp spin on three-row family crossovers, but misses on a few details.

Pros
Comfortable interior
Good V-6 power
Sharp face
Good active safety features
Available all-wheel drive

Cons
Rivals cost less...
…and some have better interiors
Rear is a dud
No Super Cruise

By:

The 2021 Cadillac XT6 comes with all wheel drive, and front wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 9-speed shiftable automatic.Luxury trim level debuts below Premium Luxury and Sport.New base 237-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine.Wireless compatibility for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Pros
Quiet interior
Third row is roomy enough for most adults
Easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons
Minimal cargo space behind third row
Many advanced driver safety aids don't come standard
Jumpy throttle makes it hard to accelerate smoothly
Low towing limits

By: 
edmunds.com

A turbocharged four-cylinder joins the XT6 lineup for 2021 as part of the new entry-level Luxury trim level. The turbo four is shared with the smaller XT5 SUV, makes 237 horsepower, and comes paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive. The 310-hp V-6 is still standard on the Premium Luxury and Sport models.

PROS
Sharply styled façade,
three roomy rows of seats,
high-tech features list.

CONS
Less-than-luxe cabin trimmings,
lackluster V-6 fuel efficiency,
borrows too much from other GM SUVs.
