Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Kia Sorento stays true to its high-value roots, but it's grown up in refinement and comfort.
Kia Sorento received a full redesign, with completely new sheet metal, a new body structure, a newly available turbocharged inline-4 engine, plus modest gains in interior space and major gains in general cabin comfort and ride quality.

Pros
Tight, "vault-like" feel
Generous feature set
Responsive, economical 2.0T
Quiet cabin

Cons
Short, bench-like second-row seats
Can't get a third-row seat and turbo-4 engine together
Active-safety features not widely available

By:

The 2017 Kia Sorento ranks 1 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Kia Sorento is a versatile crossover that rates highly in a competitive class thanks to a powerful V6 engine, many user-friendly tech features, and the availability of third-row seats. It also has excellent safety and reliability ratings, and its low starting price makes it a great value.

Pros
Easy to use infotainment system
Potent V6 engine
Stable handling
Quality interior

Cons
Weak standard engine
Limited options for base model

By: 
usnews.com

The 2017 Sorento can now be had with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, along with a couple of new safety features (adaptive headlights and automatic emergency braking). Also, the EX 2.0T gets standard shift paddles, but the SX Limited is no longer offered with the 2.0T engine.

Pros
Controls are easy to operate
Cabin is well-made and attractive
Second-row seats are versatile and comfortable
Strong value proposition
Excellent warranty
Top crash-test scores.

Cons
Turbo engine isn't as punchy or efficient as expected
Most seven-passenger competitors offer more interior space.
