Along with receiving a facelift for the 2019 model year, the Kia Sorento received some new driver-assist technology systems to make the SUV smarter than ever.
Connected and comfortable
The interior of the 2019 Kia Sorento is extremely versatile and is packed with convenient and sophisticated features. The SUV has room for seven passengers, with easy third-row access, but you can quickly fold down the second row with the standard Remote Release as you load in cargo that needs a bit more space. Once inside, an in-cabin concert awaits you via the available Harman Kardon® 10-speaker surround sound system with Clari-Fi™. To round out the ultimate driving experience, Kia’s available UVO eServices makes your life easier by assisting you with tasks such as finding your parked vehicle, scheduling maintenance and keeping track of your favorite locations around town.
Beat the competition
Powering the L and LX trims of the 2019 Kia Sorento is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain can generate up to 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque, while getting an estimated 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.* On the LX V6 trim and above, a standard 3.3-liter DOHC V6 engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, giving the Sorento 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is hardly affected by the new engine, with the SUV still managing a reasonable 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.*
With the expansive collection of safety technology included on the 2019 Sorento, you’ll be able to drive smarter every time you get behind the wheel. The innovative Kia Drive Wise driver-assist technologies work in tandem to ensure you and your passengers are supremely safe during any adventure. On the base trim of the new Sorento, you’ll have access to standard features like Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control, Hill Start Assist Control and a tire pressure monitoring system. When you upgrade to the EX V6 trim, newly added advanced systems like Driver Attention Warning, Lane Keeping Assist and Park Distance Warning — Forward will help you maneuver with confidence and stay alert on the road ahead.
Keeping your family entertained during road trips is essential, but keeping them safe is even more important. The 2019 Kia Sorento is filled with the most advanced technologies to ensure an entertaining and secure journey, every time you get in the driver’s seat. Test drive this award-winning SUV to experience the quality and expertise Kia puts into each of its vehicles.
