Kia Sorento SUV 7 seats

The Kia Sorento is a mid-size crossover with seating for seven. It comes in several configurations, with optional all-wheel drive and the choice of four- or six-cylinder engines. A new version arrived for 2016. The Sorento has evolved from its earlier life as a traditional SUV to a more modern, car-like crossover; the same switch that was made with its Hyundai platform mate, the Santa Fe.

Sorentos face off against a raft of competitors in various sizes, from Chevrolet's Equinox and larger Traverse, Ford's Edge and larger Explorer, the Nissan Murano and Pathfinder, the Toyota Venza and Highlander, and trailing the pack, the Dodge Journey. Of course, its half-siblings, the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport and seven-passenger Santa Fe, should be considered as well. In line with the competition--or perhaps slightly below it--prices for the current Sorento start at about $26,000, though a heavy hand on the options list will drive that above $30,000 quickly and the top models go for more than $40,000.

All Kia Sorento models are assembled at the carmaker's first U.S. factory in West Point, Georgia.
In its first generation, which was sold from 2003 to 2010, the Sorento was a body-on-frame SUV instead of using a carlike unibody to create a crossover. This decision hurt the model some, as many families prioritize the interior space, ride, and handling of a crossover over towing and off-road capability offered by a traditional sport-utility and its truck-like frame.
