The Sorento received a comprehensive refresh in 2014, and the new 2016 model is already in showrooms, with enough changes to arguably be considered an all-new model. But the 2015 model is still on dealer lots, and certainly merits consideration if you’re shopping for a midsize crossover.
The Sorento is available with either a 2.4L I-4, or a 3.3L V-6, both with direct fuel injection. Pricing starts at around $25,000 for a two-wheel-drive LX model, going up to a little less than $40,000 for a fully loaded Limited model. But to clear out the remaining 2015s, Kia is offering cash back and special financing to sweeten the deal.
If you’re a family with two kids, the ’15 Sorento will probably fit your needs fine, but the third row is quite small and should only be considered for occasional use. A 3-inch wheelbase stretch on the ’16 model makes it more accommodating, but it still can’t rival the third-row class leaders GM and Ford. Like most Kias, the Sorento offers ample standard equipment and can be a better buy than many similarly equipped competitors.
