According to U.S. News & World Report writer Steven Loveday, the Sorento earned rave reviews due to its incredible safety scores, stylish interior, and expected longevity and reliability.
“Standard features include Bluetooth®, a USB port, and a rearview camera, but we suggest stepping up to Kia’s user-friendly 7- or 8-inch display with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™,” he said.
The 2018 Kia Sorento is available at seven trim levels: L, LX, LX V6, EX 2.0T, EX V6, SX, and SX Limited.
The Kia Sedona impressed the editors withits high-end quality at an affordable asking price, noting that the Sedona achieved higher safety scores and delivered a more comfortable ride than the Dodge Grand Caravan, which secured a spot several notches below the Sedona. The editors also appreciated the Sedona’s impressive warranty and powerful V6 engine. The 3.3-liter V6 engine is paired to an electronically controlled six-speed automotive overdrive transmission with Sportmatic® to generate 276 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque.

“The Sedona also has an above-average predicted reliability rating, and it features versatile Slide-N-Stow second-row seats. You can also choose optional second-row lounge seats, which are some of the nicest in the class,” said Loveday.
