Enhance Your Driving Experience with a 2017 Kia Sorento

Because the midsize crossover SUV market is fiercely competitive, you might feel somewhat confused as to which one is right for you. The 2017 Kia Sorento stands out because of its excellent performance, sleek body style, affordable price, and innovative technology and safety features. From the 2016 model year, the 2017 Sorento received several updates, including technologies like the UVO3 system and the increased availability of the Advanced Driver Assistance system, as well as several available safety features. Whether you are interested in the L, LX, EX, SX, or SX Limited trim level, you will not be disappointed with this crossover SUV.

Spacious Interior Features in the 2017 Kia Sorento

The 2017 Sorento is available in two- and three-row seat configurations for almost the same base price. With just a second row, which splits and folds, this crossover seats five people, whereas with the optional third row, it seats seven. Cloth is the standard material on all of the seats, although you can upgrade to the optional leather upholstery. Additional optional features for the cabin, regardless of trim level, include heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, heated front and second-row seats, and power-adjustable driver’s side seat. Moving up in the trim levels, the degree of refinement and sophistication increases. The 2017 SX Limited is the most luxurious trim level in the lineup, boasting multiple high-end standard features, such as ivory or black leather with a stitched and quilted pattern, lumbar support for the power-adjustable driver’s seat, 8-way power-adjustable seat for the front passenger, and more. For hauling groceries, sporting equipment, shopping bags, and more, the 2017 Sorento provides 38 cubic feet of storage behind the second row; with all of the seats folded, it increases to 73 cubic feet.

Sophisticated Exterior Features of the 2017 Kia Sorento

One aspect of the 2017 Kia Sorento that makes it stand out is the refined and sleek body style. Because every detail is balanced beautifully to create a sophisticated look with just a hint of ruggedness, this midsize crossover SUV is a favorable choice for drivers of all ages. Although the exterior updates to the 2017 Sorento are not overly dramatic, they are noticeable. This crossover now has a larger grille, new wheel designs, more rounded corners, and a rear end with updated taillights. On certain trim levels, an innovative fog light style designed with four distinct lamps was added. These changes, along with the existing profile, including a unique sloping D-pillar and gorgeous body colors, make it is easy to understand why the 2017 Sorento grabs attention. To make a bolder statement, the SX Limited painted with Titanium Silver and complemented with 19-inch chrome wheels is perfect.

Performance of the 2017 Kia Sorento

The 2017 Sorento is unique in that it offers three powertrains, unlike most other midsize SUVs that have just two. A 2.4-liter 4-cylinder that produces 185 horsepower serves as the base engine. The midrange 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque is available for the EX and SX trim levels. The greatest power comes from the 3.3-liter V6 with 290 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque and all three engines are paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. In addition, front-wheel drive comes standard on the 2017 Sorento, although all-wheel drive is optional. On certain trim levels, Drive Mode Select, which features Eco, Normal, and Sport, enhances the driving experience on different surfaces. This midsize SUV crossover also has towing capability when it is properly equipped. The front-wheel-drive versions can handle up to 3,500 pounds, while the all-wheel-drive versions can tow 5,000 pounds.
