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

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

Cons

The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse is bigger and more butch, but still every bit as good for a bunch.

Pros
Bold new exterior
Stout V-6
Spacious third row
Built for families like network prime time
Plenty of cargo room

Cons
Active safety is pricey
Turbo-4 further sidelined
No hybrid batteries, at all
Poorly functioning all-wheel-drive system

For 2019, the Traverse returns with the same winning formula. Today's lighter Traverse carries over the same V6 engine from the last model, but with an additional 29 horsepower (310 hp). The engine pairs with a nine-speed transmission, a combination that helps achieve up to 21 mpg combined (18 city/27 highway). There's also a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but it's only available on the sport-styled RS trim.

Pros
Passenger room is generous in all three rows
Loads of space for any combination of passengers and cargo
Feature-rich infotainment system comes with standard Wi-Fi hotspot

Cons
Some safety features are only available on top trims
Quality of some interior panels and controls seem low-rent for this class

By: 
edmunds.com
