Kia Sorento 2021 Review

Source: Kia


The Kia Sorento may appear to be an older model at first glance. However, since it is less expensive and offers fewer features than its bigger brother Telluride, it is a rival for popular SUVs such as the Ford Explorer and VW Tiguan and related Hyundai Santa Fe models.

It’s ideal if you only need extra seats from time to time but don’t want to spend a lot of money. Kia’s Sorento 2021 turbocharged and inter-cooled DOHC 16-valve inline-4 engine provides a smooth, powerful ride. The Kia Sorento 2021 is equipped with a turbocharger that forces extra air into the combustion chamber to produce more power. A larger air intake allows for faster fuel delivery, which produces more power under acceleration.

Engine and Safety

A 2.5-liter V6 engine comes standard on all models and provides plenty of power when driving uphill or through inclement weather. This allows for a sleeker design and more storage space for luggage. Standard amenities include keyless entry, a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity with 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that can be shifted manually via the gearshift or steering wheel-mounted paddles.

Not only is the Kia Sorento 2021 a safe choice because it has advanced airbags and electronic stabilization, but also an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. With the car’s impressive efficiency and excellent features, you would expect a much higher price tag. The Kia Sorento 2021 lineup now includes eight distinct trims, allowing you to choose from a wide range of options. The core LX trim costs $30,565, while the top SX Prestige X-Line starts at $43,765.

Overall, the Kia Sorento 2021 checks all of the boxes: affordability and safety wrapped in a sleek package that can handle just about any terrain or conditions that you could throw at it. It’s a practical, dependable vehicle for everyday use. You get to choose from four powertrain choices, including a hybrid and plug-in hybrid, Turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 16-valve inline-4, aluminum block and head, port, and direct fuel injection.

The Sorento offers a sleek, informative dashboard. The standard touch screen with quick response times is easy to learn and use, while physical buttons provide clear feedback when pressed or clicked – making this car an excellent choice for new drivers who want the benefits of both worlds.

The third-row seats also fold flat, making this vehicle great as an everyday family hauler while still having enough room. The 12.6 cubic feet behind third-row seats isn’t going to be enough space if you’re planning any major vacation where carrying lots of luggage may come into play, but it will do just nicely as long-term storage.

Final thoughts

The Kia Sorento impressed us with its thoughtful detailing and premium touches of leather, metal, or wood throughout. Even though this vehicle has plastic bits scattered about the cabin, it still manages to look like good value for money at $44k – but that price tag puts you closer towards larger vehicles than your average compact SUV!

The Kia Sorento 2021 is an excellent choice for those who want an affordable, safe vehicle that can handle any terrain. It’s stylish and offers plenty of space to carry your family or luggage. The car handles well on the road and has comfortable seating with lots of legroom upfront. We recommend this model if you’re looking for something dependable without paying too much money!
