The writers at Motortrend also had great things to say about the 2019 Sorento! Drivers in the Saline area will be excited that the “refreshed 2019 Kia Sorento gets three-row seating as standard and adds full LED headlights as an option.” Adding to that, they stated that the “Sorento’s interior is a nice place to be, with comfortable first- and second-row seating” with minimal cabin noise. Here are some of the other highlights from their review:

  • “The crossover’s suspension does a great job at absorbing potholes and other road imperfections.”
  • Because it works like a smartphone, the Kia infotainment system “is user-friendly and easy to learn.”

J.D. Power

The writers at J.D. Power close their review by stating that, “The 2019 Kia Sorento is loaded with desirable comfort and safety features, is a pleasure to drive on most roads, and is engineered to keep your family as safe as is possible.” These weren’t the only things they noticed:

  • “Around town, the Sorento coddles occupants with a plush, softly tuned suspension that soaks up abnormalities before they intrude into the hushed cabin.”
  • On the available V6 engine, they write, “This motor pulls strong and smooth across the rev range, sending a surge of copious power to the optional all-wheel-drive system.”
  • “Every Sorento except for the base L trim level gets blind spot monitoring and rear-cross-traffic alert.”


The Autotrader team had the chance to test out the 2019 Kia Sorento on the roads of Southern Georgia, where the model they drove was assembled. Their experience behind the wheel wouldn’t surprise anyone who’s had the chance to step inside this model’s cabin:

  • “The materials are almost uniformly nice, with ample soft-touch surfaces, and there’s a vibe of cohesiveness and refinement.”
  • “On the road, the Sorento’s accurate steering system (with three levels of adjustable effort) inspires confidence, and ambient noise levels are generally quite low.”
  • “Well contented, the Sorento delivers plenty of bang for the buck. And there is that terrific warranty, too.”

Kelley Blue Book

The experts at Kelley Blue Book gave the 2019 Kia Sorento a score of 4.1 out of 5, and the consumers who visit their site rated it even higher, at 4.7! For these reviewers, one of the most exciting thing about the 2019 Kia Sorento is its value proposition. Although it has a low starting price for the class, the Sorento “includes everything from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration to a powertrain warranty good for 10 years/100,000 miles.”
