LA Auto Show: 2019 Kia Sorento
The refreshed 2019 Kia Sorento SUV, in L, LX, EX, SX and SXL trim levels, is powered by a choice of a 185 horsepower 2.4-liter inline-4 GDI mated to a revised electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission or a 290 horsepower 3.3-liter V6 engine with a new 8-speed automatic transmission. Sorento offers standard 40/20/40 second-row folding seats and 50/50 third-row folding seats now comes standard on all trims, providing space for up to seven passengers. The new Smart Shift & Drive feature across all trim levels automatically activates the optimum Eco, Sport or Smart drive mode based on driving style or may be set by driver preference. Aside from new front and rear fascias and a new engine choice, newly-added technology includes Driver Attention Warning, Lane Keep Assist and QuantumLogic™ Surround Sound. And for 2019, Sorento now offers 2-way powered lumbar support for the front passenger on SX and SXL trims.
