The 2020 Kia Sorento is one of the most desirable crossover SUV model we have come across that offers not only a couch with three rows of comfortable seating, but also executes all the other qualities of one, for which it gains a respectable rating across the globe.
When we first got to see and explore the 2020 Kia Sorento at the Cypress Kia dealer showroom, the sales executives took pleasure in showing us the dynamic lineup of the Kia crossover that was finalized for the year 2020 that is now revamped in the flavors of L, LX, S V6, EX, and SX trim models. Our first impression on the 2020 Kia Sorento made us feel more drawn towards the models each of which combined the virtues of style and comfort, in terms of individual space and ride safety. All that finally buys you the peace of mind, which is invaluable.
Kia has refreshed the looks of its flagship model Sorento with the most cherished styling cues, just the last year. Both the front and rear end now look different , while a newly designed shimmery grille sits at the front fascia with a more widely spread angle, which is commonly found in the latest Kia models. but we specially liked the beautifully sculpted body sides of the Sorento that matched s well with the artistically drawn roofline draping the cabin and reaches out to cover the taillights as well. What makes the design look distinctive and eye-catching is the proportionate usage of details that are all so well-placed.
Interior Design Theme
Inside, the cabin looked fashionable with the abundant usage of low-gloss plastic in the right combination of fine leather, if you explore the higher models. what came as a pleasant surprise, is that the 2020 Kia Sorento interior is designed on the theme of oval shaped cues to add some spicy elements to the otherwise subdued environment.
Tech Support for Ride Convenience
After leaving enough space to seat five adult passengers with ease, the 2020 Kia Sorento spreads out 73 cubic feet of space behind the behind the front seats and 11.3 cubes behind the third row to store your luggage.
Technology is best found in the Safety section in each of the 2020 Kia Sorento models that standardized the installation of automatic emergency braking, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and many more.
Horsepower Count and Performance
Most of the 2020 Kia Sorento models are set as front-wheel-drives. The base models are given a 2.4-liter inline-4 engine that brings out 185 hp and 178 pound-feet of torque after being coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
But the most popular powertrain combination among the 2020 Kia Sorento lineup is the 3.3-liter V-6 engine that builds up 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque after an 8-speed automatic transmission agrees to send the power mostly to the front wheels, but also to all four of them, if so configured, with which the 2020 Sorento gets motivated enough to tow 5,000 pounds of weight.
Our test drive with the 2020 Sorento at the Cypress Kia dealership made us like this Kia crossover as an ideal family travel companion.
