If you like the idea of maximizing your infotainment and seating capabilities while keeping vehicle size and price in check, you're going to like the more refined, mostly new 2014 Kia Sorento.
If you need three rows on a regular basis, or need room enough for six or seven people and more than a couple duffel bags at the same time, you'll probably be better served by a more traditionally
What the 2014 Kia Sorento gives up in interior volume to its larger competitors, it gains in everyday maneuverability. The Sorento is seven inches shorter than a Honda Pilot, with a shorter wheelbase and tighter turning radius, making the Kia easier to navigate into and out of the many parking spaces it's likely to visit on a daily basis. Out on the road, the Sorento's new 290-horsepower V6 and smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission combine to deliver responsive, seamless acceleration. Our very first taste of the revised Sorento

"I bought this car in September 2012. It was the new 2013 Kia Sorento. In 8 months it's been back to the dealer 4 times. I've never had a car that I've had to take in to the shop for anything other than regular upkeep. The car has no power! It can barely go up hills at the speed limit. The interior is cheap and rattles a lot. The car is uncomfortable and has really bad blind spots. I am sorry I purchased this vehicle."

"Owned 2012 Sorento SX and loved it. Especially liked the engine power and road handling. Had minor concern with torque steer until I adjusted to the power of the V6. The seating was comfortable and the navi was very accurate. My wife even learned to love it but the lack of a power liftgate made it hard for her to use for shopping (she's tiny). Traded in the 2012 SX for the 2014 SXL this weekend and have been blown away by the upgraded quality of the interior. More power and the handling is even better top my lists and my wife loves the Nappa Leather and power liftgate. Seems most people don't look at a Kia if they want upgraded options so the dealer was more that willing to negotiate a very good deal (for me) since they wanted my gently used 2012 Sorento for their "pre-owned" lot."
