Do you want to drive a compact crossover SUV but you want more size than what most vehicles in this class have to offer? If so, you need to choose the 2020 Kia Sorento. This is an SUV that is certainly on the smaller size of the midsize SUV class while being a larger compact crossover. You do get a third-row seat in the Sorento, but this seat is small and only good for children. There’s lots of room for your stuff and for the comfort of five people to ride together in this SUV.
Items You’ll Find in the Sorento
You’ll find a low starting price in the Kia Sorento to give you the right place to have the drive you want. This SUV has a small footprint to make it one of the most agile three-row SUVs in the market. The excellent standard warranty gives you the peace of mind you want and the benefits of the simplified V6 trim lineup makes it easy for you to have the experience you want when you take a drive. New EX and S trims have been added to the Sorento for this model year and the SX trim has been changed to make it more affordable.
Control Elements are Right in this Kia
The steering, acceleration, handling, and ride quality of the Kia Sorento all make it one of the most impressive and enjoyable SUVs for you to drive and enjoy on the road. You’ll be pleased to have the option of a more dynamic drive with the AWD system and the Torque Vectoring Cornering Control. Figure out how you want this SUV to feel when you’re ready to get behind the wheel and take a drive that will be perfect for you.
A Cabin Filled with Comfort in the Sorento
You’ll see three rows of seats for every version of the Kia Sorento. Step inside this SUV and let it give you the package of features and the comfort you want during your drive. The third row is good for small children and passengers that only need to take short trips for you. Most of the time, this row of seats will be used for cargo to be carried with you to where you need to go. The treatment of the Yes Essentials stain protection and the technology you want to enjoy will make this Kia the SUV you love to drive every day.
A Fresh Look to this Kia
You’ve known the Kia Sorento for a long time and have admired its appeal and appearance. This SUV has a fresh look for 2020 to give you upgraded front and rear bumpers, improved taillights, and better headlights. The sculpted look of these items makes it an SUV that has an upscale feeling to it so that you can have the design and drive hat you want. Higher trims add more with stainless-steel bumper trim, a dark metallic grille, and chrome roof rails.
Get Started with the Sorento L
The starting trim for the Kia Sorento is the L model. This version gives you a good level of equipment to make sure you have what you want.
