Sometimes a vehicle gets redesigned and the differences aren’t all that noticeable, but that couldn’t be further from the truth for the 2021 Kia Sorento. This model year brings a new take on the Sorento characterized by a balanced, sharp exterior design and an enhanced powertrain that is more prepared to take up to 7 passengers off-road.
The Sorento is poised to rewrite the rules of the mid-size crossover competition for many more reasons that can be written on one page. The redesign comes as part of a gradual wave of reinventions within the Kia lineup. The hybrid option can’t be ignored, and its use of space as a 3-row mid-size crossover is impressive. As buyers have come to expect from recent Kia standards, the Sorento provides generous technological appointments and other interior features.
