The 2018 Kia Sorento is a midsize crossover SUV that can seat five or seven passengers in two-or three-row configurations. The folks at the Carlsbad Kia dealer tell us the Sorento is great for shoppers who are looking for something a bit different. That’s because the Sorento is larger than the usual five-seat crossover, but smaller than the typical three-row SUV.

When you buy a Kia Sorento at a dealership like the Carlsbad Kia Sorrento dealer, you’ll get a great family vehicle with more room and utility that five-seat crossovers. At the same time, the Sorento is more maneuverable and less expensive than bigger SUVs. None of this comes at the expense of features or cabin quality; instead, you’ll get a long list of features and a great-looking interior constructed with high-quality materials. If you’re looking to straddle the world between a five-passenger crossover and a large three-row SUV, you should place the 2018 Kia Sorento at the top of your list.

Autotrader sang the praises of the 2018 Kia Sorento in a recent review, writing: “Although the 2018 Kia Sorento may be priced like some well-equipped compact SUVs, its impressive list of available features and optional powertrains make it just as easily mistaken for an expensive Audi or Lexus luxury vehicle. ... The 2018 Sorento is still a good value, but that's not the headline news anymore; what's remarkable about this Kia is that it's now one of the best vehicles in its class.”

The refined and upmarket look of the Sorento’s cabin carries over to the outside of the vehicle. The straightforward styling and "tiger-nose" grille treatment have led some reviewers to declare the Sorento the best-looking midsize SUV available today. You’ll appreciate the design touches, such as the LED accent lights in the headlights, the multi-element LED fog lights (on some models) and the chrome finish that adorns the vehicle. The base L and LX models get 17-inch alloys wheels, the EX gets 18-inch alloys and the SX is equipped with 19-inch alloys.

One feature that buyers appreciate is the Smart Liftgate. Accessing it couldn’t be easier; simply stand near it with the key fob in your pocket or bag and it opens automatically. You’ll never again have trouble getting items inside while your hands are full.
