Our long-term test Kia Sorento is gone, and with it all three rows of its generous space, adaptability, features and even genuine driving enjoyment. We put it through its paces on our daily grinds, a road trip or two, even some towing. And while I won’t admit this in person to anyone, ever, the Kia Sorento might even have been set loose on a large
The Sorento is a pleasure to drive. I don’t mean that in a “for a seven-seat SUV” way, I simply enjoy driving it.

I finally get to talk about the Kia Sorento’s driving qu
Most owners report satisfaction with the performance of the Sorento’s V6 engine options, plenty of room, a commanding driving position, and all-weather confidence thanks to the AWD traction.
The second-generation of Kia’s popular SUV, the Sorento , launched for model year 2010 with an all-new
In 2014 Kia sold 13,962 Sorento units in Canada, just shy of the brand’s most popular car, the Rio at 14,458. That puts the Sorento and Rio at the top of the Kia food chain as the brand’s top performers – which is why this new edition is so important.
Longer, wider but lower than the outgoing model, the new Sorento increases comfort and feature
Who knew one SUV could be responsible for spreading so much holiday cheer? In the case of this Kia Sorento, it seems good deeds are what it was made for.
Since this one needed to be able to tow that huge float in the Santa Claus Parade, it’s fitted with the 3.3L V6 engine.
First, it began its life as part of Kia’s fleet of 26 Sorentos
Some buyers need three rows, while others could use a third row every once in a while. We began this comparison looking at it from both perspectives, hunting for the least expensive vehicles in Canada that offered three key features: a third row, four- or all-wheel drive, and SUV/crossover packaging.
Not that we have anything against minivans
It's a garage filled with some of the most innovative cars ever to be built: a Tatra T87, a Citroën DS, and (of course) a Tesla Model S as the daily driver. I'm here to cover a few of these for a story or two, but at the end of the ride, it's time to grab something far more mundane to head back home, a mid-sized crossover from a Korean car known fo
HUNTSVILLE, ON – Kia may be calling their 2019 Sorento all-new, but it’s really more of a design refresh, inside and out, to help it compete better with the Toyota RAV4s and Honda CR-Vs of the world.
The base $27,995 Sorento is a front-wheel-drive crossover that looks and feels like a bigger and burlier SUV – which it is – but is priced right
When it comes to mid-size SUVs there’s no shortage of choice, yet Kia’s Sorento manages to stand out from the crowd thanks to its well-rounded blend of just-right sizing, plentiful available features, excellent safety ratings, handsome exterior styling and a well-appointed interior. The icing on the cake is Sorento’s competitive pricing, especial

A reasonable size for most any family, whether it’s just a single child with bulky child gear up to an active family of five with the occasional in-law along for the ride.
As eager as we are to dive in
At its core, Kia’s UVO infotainment system hits all the right buttons. Literally. Because there are buttons. And knobs. And steering-wheel controls and a touchscreen.
Main functions are all accessed via shortcut buttons, and there is a tuning knob and volume knob within easy reach for both driver and passenger. The quickest way to tune stations
Thirty years ago, a pair of Korean automakers prepared the groundwork for the two mainline crossovers you see here today. In a time when Bryan Adams was not only tolerated, but actually encouraged to sing, Hyundai arrived in Canada just as Kia was beginning to manufacture passenger cars again. Over a tumultuous three decades, both

It’s always nice to start out a long-term review with a little bit of good news, so now is as good a time as any to congratulate the newest member of our long-term fleet, the Kia Sorento, for winning its SUV/CUV $35K–$60K category in AJAC’s Canadian Car of the Year testing, making it eligible to win overall Utility o
A few months ago, I had the opportunity to drive the Kia Sorento in its top SXL trim. At this level, the seven-passenger SUV is kitted out with niceties like a 360-degree camera system, adaptive cruise control, and air-conditioned seats trimmed in premium Nappa leather.
The Sorento represents a tremendous value for a well-built and very refin
South Korean automaker Kia is asking owners of nearly 1,300 examples of its Sorento crossover to bring their vehicles back to the dealer to inspect rear suspension crossmembers.
Kia says a crossmember assist arm bracket may not have been properly welded when the car was built and could fail. That would affect the alignment of the rear suspensi
