In any market, there are products that require quite a bit of drumming and to move stock, but there are also those that need too little talk for they tend to take much of the action and initiative on their own. The KIA Sorento belongs to this latter class.

Still, lost? This what I am saying; if you go out shopping for a capable, convenient, and comfortable three-row-crossover conveyance, the Kia Sorento is not only a perfect choice but one that won’t let you down.

One of the good things is that your choices here are way too many. Think of it this way, you can choose one with seating capacity for seven, two different engines, and both front- and all-wheel-drive variants.

Besides making it a seven-passenger affair, KIA has upped the Sorento with lane-keeping assist and a driver attention monitor which are optional, as well as a wireless smartphone charging pad and a Harman/Kardon audio system. Trim levels include L, LX, EX SX and the premium SX Limited for which you will part with anything from $45,680.

On the upscale model, you will enjoy features such as a panoramic sunroof, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, navigation, leather upholstery with power-adjustable heated front seats, and a 10-speaker Harman/Kardon stereo.

This is a vehicle whose cabin is meant to work hard. For this reason, all Sorentos come with a 40/20/40 split-folding second-row bench seat. The third row has a 50/50 split-folding arrangement and, along with the middle row, stows flat into the cargo floor to make a level load surface. This is quite a roomy car to move around on a holiday.
