The Sorento first made its debut in 2002 and has remained on the market ever since, making it one of the oldest models in Kia’s SUV lineup.

Since its release, there have been a total of four generations. The latest of these first hit the market in 2020.

Each generation also received a mid-cycle facelift. The last of these was the third-gen facelift, which was unveiled in 2018.

Competition for the Sorento has typically come from the Kia Telluride, Ford Bronco, Hyundai Palisade, and Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Kia has typically offered the Sorento in a number of different trims. For the latest generation, these consist of six options, the LX, S, EX, SX Prestige, and SX Prestige X-Line.

The Sorento has been offered with a variety of engine options. Thankfully, these have been streamlined with the release of the sixth generation.

Petrol options consist of three 2.5 L inline-4s and a single 3.5 L V6. This generation also featured a single 2.2 L inline-4 diesel engine.

These are similar engine sizes found in the previous generations. However, the older models featured more V6s in the lineup.

A plug-in hybrid powertrain was first introduced with the release of the fourth generation in 2020. This uses a 1.6 L inline-4 coupled with an electric motor.

These various engines have been mated with a 6-speed automatic, an 8-speed automatic, and an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission.

During its long stay on the market, the Sorento has won a number of awards. The latest of these include the 2021 Large SUV of the Year by What Car?, as well as the 2022 Best 7 Seater from Auto Trader.
