COMFORT AS YOU LIKE IT
How you furnish your Kia Sorento cabin depends on what you like and what you think you'll use. If you would rather have seating for seven riders, stick with the LX and S trims. To get second-row Captain's chairs and six seats, upgrade to the EX through SX-Prestige trims.
Also choose different upholstery options, like the cloth seats in the LX, SynTex in the S through SX trims, or go all out with the deluxe leather in the SX-Prestige.
Select the Kia Sorento S through SX-Prestige trims that come with a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat if you need extra comfort. The LX includes a 6-way adjustable driver's seat. Those who drive the LX through EX trims can provide passengers a 4-way adjustable passenger seat, while SX and SX-Prestige riders will enjoy the 8-way power-adjustability.
If you're searching for more amenities in your cabin, you can get Dual-Zone Automatic Temperature Control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a leather-wrapped gear shift in the S through SX-Prestige trims. For the ultimate luxe items, the ventilated front seats and heated steering wheel only come in the SX-Prestige.
TECHNOLOGY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Each dashboard display gives you something to look forward to with an 8-inch Touch-Screen available for the LX through EX trims and a larger 10.25-inch Touch-Screen with added navigation and voice recognition in the SX and SX-Prestige trims. Adjust either your 6-speaker Audio System, found in the LX through SX trims, or the exclusive SX-Prestige 12-Speaker Bose® Premium Audio System from the screen before you.
To keep an eagle eye on your odometer and gas gauge, view the 4.2-inch Trip Computer Display in the LX through SX trims or treat yourself to the 12.3-inch Supervision Meter Cluster LCD Display, only available in the SX-Prestige trim.
So many upgraded safety and driver-assist systems appear in the SX-Prestige that there's no stopping you in your Kia Sorento. Those who want the Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go should consider the EX through SX-Prestige trims. If a Surround View Monitor sounds like the perfect guide to exiting a twisty driveway, the SX-Prestige would work for you.
Along with the many systems that come standard, several others, such as Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, can be found in the S through SX-Prestige trims.
PERFORMANCE TO MAKE ANYTHING POSSIBLE
While all the trims provide you with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, the turbocharged version sits under the hood of the EX through SX-Prestige trims. This engine produces a stunning 281 horsepower with 311 lb-ft of torque. With the entry level trims like LX and S, they will achieve 23 MPG city/25 MPG highway, but the upper-level trims including the EX through SX-Prestige can achieve 21 MPG city/28 MPG highway.*
