Get to Know the New Kia Sorento and What It Can Do

At WestGate Kia, we get asked all the time about the new Kia Sorento and its capabilities. If you've been wondering about this midsize SUV from Kia, you can read the breakdown for information about its performance, standard features, and various amenities. This vehicle has proven itself to be very popular for a variety of customers around Raleigh, so let's explore what makes the Sorento such a viable vehicle.


The Sorento offers a variety of power outputs and specs with its multiple engine and powertrain options. With the available V6 engine, Millbrook drivers get up to 290 horsepower and a towing capacity of over 5,000 pounds, making the Sorento a very capable midsize SUV. Available all-wheel drive can make the Sorento into a vehicle that feels much more responsive to steering and improves the vehicle's general handling.

The Sorento's standard 2.4-liter engine option can give Knightdale drivers 185 horsepower, which while is still impressive for an SUV of this design. With 178 pound-feet of torque, it handles pretty well for a standard vehicle model, especially with the Sorento's standard front-wheel drive. With a pretty impressive fuel economy, the Sorento also ensures that it won't break your bank anytime due to its fuel consumption.

Standard Features

The Sorento has a decent collection of standard features to talk about. One that particularly impressed us was the seven-inch touchscreen, which includes both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This standard inclusion means no paying extra for easy device connections and a better entertainment experience. The Sorento's interior features other comforting standard features like air conditioning, Bluetooth, folding second and third-row seats, and 12-volt power outlets for easy charging.

The Sorento also includes some driver assistance features. This includes the rear camera, which makes backing up into difficult parking spaces and managing bumper-to-bumper traffic a much easier process. Features like Hill Assist Control help you stay safe when starting up the Sorento on a slope. At the same time, Electronic Stability Control means your vehicle will stay balanced and centered when you're hauling around heavy equipment. Again, these are all standard features, and can greatly increase the sense of safety and security one feels in the Sorento.


The technology included in the Kia Sorento is impressive even for the most experienced drivers. The Bluetooth that it offers allows drivers to safely communicate via phone or device through the Sorento's speakers so that hands always stay on the steering wheel. The touchscreen also aids in removing driver distractions by being dimly lit when not in use. When it is in use, it features colors and designs that are more soothing than vibrant, allowing driver attention to stay on the road in front of them.

Technology like remote keyless entry makes getting into the Sorento easy, especially if your hands are full. The one-touch slide & fold seats in the second row make organizing your cargo much easier as well - press a button, and suddenly, there's more space for whatever you need to pack away. The Sorento's Traction Control System is one piece of tech we haven't mentioned yet. It's certainly worth knowing about - it allows the Sorento to adjust to different terrains and surfaces. Whether you're driving through slush, mud, snow, or sand, the Sorento will be able to help you stay in full control.
