The 2018 Kia Sorento, hitting dealer lots in the summer of 2017, is a carryover from the 2017 model year. But that is a great thing, as the 2018 Sorento has the same level of power, cargo space and handling as the model year that garnered recognition for safety (IIHS Top Safety Pick) and value (U.S. News & World Report's "Best 3-Row SUV for the Money" award), among other praise.
Similar to 2017, the new 2018 Kia Sorento comes with upwards of 290 horsepower in its top trims with a V6 engine, and starts out with robust fuel savings in its base L and LX trims, with a sedan-like 21 mpg city, 28 mpg highway. But a sedan can’t tow up to 5,000 pounds like a 2018 Sorento does, and this road-chewing SUV also can take it off-road, with six trim levels (all but the L trim) capable of off-road adventure if you choose that version of the Sorento. Now, let’s move on to some new features for this SUV!
|Performance||Interior & Towing||Features & Technology|
|185 base HP: L, LX trims||Seats up to seven passengers||Nine exterior color options|
|240 HP: EX trim||Up to 73.5 cubic feet for cargo||Available 8-inch touchscreen with Premium Navigation|
|290 HP: Four V6 trims (LX, EX, SX, SXL)||Nine interior fabric options, inxcluding Nappa Leather for SXL V6 trim||Available Autonomous Emergency Braking|
|21 mpg city, 28 mpg highway||Tows up to 5,000 pounds (V6 trims)||Available Advanced Smart Cruise Control|
The 2018 Kia Sorento has available UVO eServices, which provide access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for compatible smartphones, but it also comes standard with Rear-Camera Display for added safety when you're backing out of a space. It also has available drive-assist features like Autonomous Emergency Braking, which pumps the brakes if someone or something jumps in front of your Sorento and you don’t have the time to brake, plus Blind Spot Detection, which keeps tabs on if vehicles are in your blind spot. Add up all this cool technology, its nice performance and the low starting price for this SUV, and we have a winner once again with the 2018 Kia Sorento!
