If you’re looking for a midsize SUV big enough for the family but not so big you’ll need to expand the garage, the 2019 Kia Sorento might be the answer. This midsize SUV comes with a third row and seats seven passengers. According to the Kia dealer in Pala Mesa, one of the nice things about the 2019 Kia Sorento is that it comes in five trim levels, so you can buy an economical Sorento or get it with sophisticated amenities approaching luxury level.

When you check out the Kia Sorento at a dealership like the Kia dealer serving Pala Mesa, you’ll notice a few changes for 2019. Last year’s six-speed automatic transmission is replaced by an eight-speed gearbox. Three-row seating is now standard, and there’s refreshed styling for the front and rear.

The automotive reviewers at CNET found compelling reasons to buy the 2019 Sorento over the competition, writing: “The Sorento competes in a crowded segment of three-row crossovers. … But as of now, none of the Sorento's competitors can touch it on price, with most starting in the low $30,000 range. That MSRP, plus the tweaked styling and other 2019 model year updates, ought to keep the Sorento pretty competitive in this very important segment.”

As we mentioned earlier, the 2019 Kia Sorento is available in five different trim levels: L, LX, EX, SX and SX Limited. All models get standard front-wheel drive, and all trims other than the L can be equipped with all-wheel drive.

Powering the L and LX trims is a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine developing 185 horsepower and 178 lb.-ft. of torque, connected to a six-speed automatic transmission. The EX, SX and SX Limited trims are equipped with a 3.3-liter V6 that puts out an impressive 290 hp and 252 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This gearbox is optional on the LX. Depending on the engine and the drive choice, the Sorento can tow between 2,000 and 5,000 pounds.

EPA-estimated fuel economy for the Sorento with the four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive is 22 mpg city/29 mpg highway, while all-wheel-drive models get 21 mpg city/26 mpg highway.* The V6 delivers 19/26 with front-wheel drive and 19/24 with all-wheel drive.

While the base L trim is economically priced, it still comes with a fair number of standard features, including 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, keyless entry and stain-resistant cloth upholstery. Also standard is a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and Bluetooth. Step up to the LX trim and you’ll get an acoustic windshield, blind-spot monitoring and two rapid-charge USB ports. With the V6, the LX comes with dual-zone automatic climate control and a power driver’s seat. The higher trims add even more amenities.

One feature buyers appreciate is the automatic emergency braking system, which comes standard on the EX V6 models and higher. This system includes pedestrian detection, which uses sensors to spot pedestrians in the roadway. It will deploy the brakes if a collision is imminent.
