Get the fast facts of the 2019 Kia Sorento EX in four key categories:

• Style 00:28

• Comfort 00:56

The 2019 Kia Sorento EX features clean lines with a slightly rugged appearance. Featuring LED taillights and 18” alloy wheels, it’s a great fit for a night on the town or a family camping trip.

The Sorento EX has a premium feel with leather seats and plenty of extras like dual-zone heating and cooling. The optional heated steering wheel and panoramic sunroof complete the luxury feel.

This 3-row SUV has room for seven but the reduced legroom in the back is best left for the kids.

The 2019 Sorento EX gets an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.*

With three rows up, the 11.3 cubic feet of cargo space can be tight. But when folded down, the power liftgate becomes your gateway to 73 cubic feet of storage.

Powered by a 3.3-liter, V6 engine, the Kia Sorento EX is not the biggest or most powerful midsize in its category. But the EX does feature a variety of technology, like a touchscreen infotainment system and available driver-assist options including lane-departure warning, parking sensors, and blind spot monitors.

The Kia Sorento has a strong sales history at CarMax® and is an excellent value for 3-row SUV shoppers. Based on CarMax® vehicle and sales data from May 1, 2019 through October 31, 2019, the Kia Sorento has been ranked as a top five midsize SUV for 2020.

2019 Sorento SX

Get the feel for this set of wheels as we test:

• Cargo Space 2:35

• Seating Capacity 4:01

• The Ride 5:36

Our first test goes to the dogs to learn how much cargo space is offered by the Sorento SX. With all three rows up, the 11.3 cubic feet of storage space is limited versus the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder SV and the Subaru Ascent Limited. But when we fold them flat and unleash the hounds, we discover the 73 cubic feet of cargo space is more than enough room for groceries, gear, and puppies!

With three rows of seating and two full sets of LATCH child seat connectors, the Sorento SX looks like a solid choice for young families. But when we went old school with a group of young students, we discovered that tight legroom in the third row might not cut it on those long summer road trips.

We took on an obstacle course to test out the ride of the Kia Sorento SX. Overall, it’s quiet, smooth, calm, and serene, with very few jarring bumps.

The Kia Sorento SX gets an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.*

Overall, there are many great features that make the 2019 Kia Sorento a solid choice for families seeking a 3-row SUV with style.

The Kia Sorento has a strong sales history at CarMax® and is an excellent value for 3-row SUV shoppers. Based on CarMax® vehicle and sales data from May 1, 2019 through October 31, 2019, the Kia Sorento has been ranked as a top five midsize SUV for 2020.
