The Kia Sorento is a car-based crossover with seating for up to seven in three rows. In Kia's lineup, the Sorento sits above the compact Sportage crossover. It competes roughly with smaller crossovers that also offer a third row, like the Dodge Journey, Toyota RAV4 and Mitsubishi Outlander.
Trim levels include the LX, EX and SX. Four-cylinder or V-6 power is available. All-wheel drive is optional.
