The Kia Sorento is a popular choice for a crossover SUV, and it's easy to see why with its pleasing combination of style, ruggedness, utility, and affordability. With a partial redesign for the 2019 model-year, the Sorento gets even better, with many exterior and interior upgrades, improved performance, newly standard 7-passenger seating, and new driver assistance and multimedia technologies. Come check out the all-new 2019 Kia Sorento at Kia Marin in Novato!
The beautiful styling of the Sorento really grabs your attention. Exterior design highlights include a new radiator grille with a greater amount of artistic detail, a more sculpted look for the front and rear bumpers, three new wheel choices, a sporty new muffler tip, and a new lighting layout with the choice of available full-LED lights. Inside the Sorento, the cabin has a more refined look, with enhancements to the steering wheel, instrument cluster, center cluster, air vents, and shifter knob. With 73 cu-ft of maximum cargo, there's plenty of room for storing your gear, and the 40/20/40 split-fold for the second-row and 50/50 split-fold for the third-row give you considerable flexibility for your cargo needs.
Buyers of the Sorento have a choice of two state-of-the-art engines. This includes the 2.4-liter inline-4 GDI, which produces 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. For a more powerful ride, the 3.3L V6 GDI delivers 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come standard with a six-speed automatic transmission, while the V6 engine offers a newly-available 8-speed automatic. If you have towing needs, the Sorento can tow up to 5,000 pounds — and for all-weather traction and off-road capabilities, you can get the available AWD system. Also, the driving experience of the Sorento is further enhanced by a new Smart Shift & Drive feature with three different settings (Eco, Smart, and Sport), enabling you to personalize according to your driving needs and preferences.
The new Sorento offers many advanced safety technologies. This includes the standard Brake Assist System, Electronic Stability Control, Hill-start Assist Control, and the Traction Control System. Also, for the Sorento EX grades and higher, you'll get many advanced driver assistance technologies, including the Surround View Monitor, Blind Spot Collision, the Forward Collision Warning System, and Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning.
