2017 Kia Sorento Review #SorentoFamily2017 Kia Sorento Review

The all new 2017 Kia Sorento is the most up to date line of vehicles made by Kia and a new addition to the Sorento models as a crossover SUV type. The newer version has had some changes added to it, mainly by adding more smartphone capabilities, one of them including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functions. Better headlights and automatic emergency braking systems are another new feature that has been added to the recent model. We hope that you enjoy our 2017 Kia Sorento Review.

2017 Kia Sorento Review #SorentoFamilyPerformance

The overall performance of the new 2017 Kia Sorento vehicle is quite similar to how the previous models have been designed over the years. For instance, the Sorento has a 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission and a front wheel drive train to keep it balanced when on the road. The engine contains inline 4 cylinders, though may also be fitted for V6 and can generate between a 185 and 290 horsepower rating while riding along at 6,000 wheel revolutions per minute. It can also generate between 178 and 260 feet per pounds of total torque. As far as the fuel economy goes, the crossover SUV runs on regular unleaded gasoline and has 24 combined miles per gallon as a rating, with 21 MPGs when on the city and 28 on the highway.

2017 Kia Sorento Review #SorentoFamilyInterior features

Performance is not the only thing that will attract more people to the new 2017 Kia Sorento. The special interior features have also been changed and re-formatted for future drivers. Many of the features are made for the comfort of the driver and passengers, starting with the fact that the SUV can hold a total of five people, though other models can hold up to seven of them. Cruise control is one of the standard features that comes installed into the vehicle.

The cruise control settings, along with the audio settings, are all mounted onto the steering wheel, which comes with its own electric power steering capability. Air conditioning is a pretty standard feature, though some models also have climate control and interior air filtration added into the mix. The front seats are built in as bucket seats and the driver's seat is completely height adjustable.

2017 Kia Sorento Review #SorentoFamilySafety

Safety is always an important aspect, whether it's a Kia or any other crossover SUV. Child passengers require the most safety and this takes the form of installed child seating anchors and rear door child safety locks. We love the emergency braking assist feature in the vehicle which pairs well with the stability and traction control added into the mix. Even better, a remote anti-theft alarm system is also included in the event that someone tries to illegally enter or cause damage to the vehicle.

The 2017 Kia Sorento is a solid choice for your next vehicle and all of extras makes this car feel upgraded plus it handles beautifully when driving. We hope that you enjoyed our 2017 Kia Sorento Review. There is a reason that they call it the Perfect Getaway Vehicle.

2017 Kia Sorento Review #SorentoFamilyOur family was taken to Lake Tahoe as part of the 2017 Kia Sorento #SorentoFamily Winter Adventure. We got to drive Kia's in the snow among other things and really test these cars out! Think these two below loved the snow or what?

  2. WHat an absolutely fantastic looking car, I would love to give it a try myself I have to admit.

  3. I’ve been eyeing the Sorento a lot lately. It has a ton of space, and I like the styling, as well.

    The Sorento is a value-oriented ride for those seeking to avoid the minivan stigma. A six-speed automatic and front-wheel drive are standard; all-wheel-drive models can tow up to 5000 lb. Its really impressive!

  13. Mars

    Such a pretty rugged SUV. I heard good reviews about this car. And price is competitive also.

  14. One of my good friends has a Kia Sorrento and she loves it. She gets good mileage and has been very pleased. Looks like your experience was positive, too.

  36. Reesa Lewandowski

    I am really loving the looks of the Sorento. We will probably be in the market for a new car in about a year and will def. be looking at this!

    Handsome looking car! The interiors are so plush and I love all the new features too. I would take this Sorento into consideration if we are in the market for a new car.

  47. Sherry

    The next vehicle I am going to buy is this one. I could have really used the automatic emergency braking system earlier this year.

  48. Amy

    I love my KIA vehicles. They are the perfect size for our family and they are mega affordable. 

  49. Annemarie LeBlanc

    I love this Kia Sorento! Sad that I am not in the market for a new vehicle, but I do love the interiors. The controls on the steering wheel is awesome and a height adjustable driver’s seat is so great! To top it all, the gas mileage is so good.

  50. It’s a car that you want to have when you go on a lot of road trips with your family or friends. I love that it’s perfect for the outdoors!

  51. My husband and I have been thinking of getting a new car. We both love to travel and go on road trips together. This would be a really good car to have.

  52. I have been on the hunt for a cute mid size SUV and this one at the top of my list. I really need to get out and test and drive one. The Sorento has some great features!

  53. As a lifelong New Yorker, the one thing I never learned to do was drive. Parking is the price of a house here and the traffic struggle is super real. I’m pretty sure I don’t have the patience, all cars look pretty to me! But I love being the passenger, it’s the one place I am happy giving up control so I can catch up on work, listen to music or NAP! LOL 🙂

  54. Jennifer

    I really love the look of these vehicles! So pretty. I want to give one a test drive and see if I like it.
