Five Trims: What They All Have in Common

The 2020 Kia Sorento is a spacious, three-row midsize SUV with a lot to offer. One thing that remains consistent throughout its five trim levels: its dimensions. No matter which trim you choose, you'll find seven seats inside the cabin with these spacious dimensions to spread out in and enjoy:


Front Row of Seats

Second Row of Seats

Third Row of Seats


39.5 inches

39.3 inches

36.3 inches

Hip Room

56.7 inches

56.4 inches

41.4 inches


44.1 inches

39.4 inches

31.7 inches

Shoulder Room

59.1 inches

58 inches

52.8 inches

Additionally, all five Kia Sorento trim levels sport 73 total cubic feet of cargo space. Utilize all at once by folding down the rear two rows of seats, or use just some of your space by folding down just the third row of seats.

Kia Sorento L: All About that Base

The Kia Sorento L kicks things off with a 185-HP 2.4L I-4 engine that pairs with an Electronically Controlled 6-Speed Automatic Transmission. Additionally, you'll get a standard front-wheel drivetrain and Sportmatic™ Sports Shifter to make every commute a bit more exciting. This equipment works hard but efficiently to achieve up to an EPA-estimated 22 city / 29 highway MPG.1

Inside this model, this trim level sports comfortable cloth seats with YES Essentials® Fabric Treatment as well as 50/50 split-folding third-row seats for easy cargo packing. Keep everyone cool, calm, and connected using this model's standard 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which comes with Bluetooth®, Android Auto™, and Apple CarPlay®.

Kia Sorento LX: A Step Up in the Tech Department

Next up is the Kia Sorento LX, which inherits the same efficient equipment offered by the preceding Kia Sorento trim level. However, in this trim, you'll be able to opt for an optional Dynamax™ All-Wheel Drive system to replace the standard front-wheel drive system.

This state-of-the-art AWD system is fully active, meaning it's monitoring your driving conditions at all times. If it detects a change in the road beneath you, it'll automatically adjust the torque distribution to maintain a steady and firm grip on the road.

Additionally, you'll get two Rapid Charge USB Ports for juicing up on the go and two advanced active safety features. Blind Spot Collision Warning and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning help prevent collisions by alerting you of oncoming vehicles.

Kia Sorento S V6: Power Meets Luxury

Next up is the Kia Sorento V6, which introduces this model's second available engine: a 3.3L DOHC V6 engine. With this engine, you'll get a whopping 290 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. Use this power to take advantage of this model's maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.

This trim also offers a handful of smart features to maximize convenience, like Park Distance Warning-Reverse. The Smart Key with Push Button Start lets you remotely start the vehicle and lock/unlock the vehicle. The Kia Sorento S V6 doesn't stop there, though.

Inside the cabin, you'll be sitting in the lap of luxury with heated front seats to keep you warm no matter how frightful the weather outside is. Additionally, the driver will get power adjustability for their seat as well as power lumbar support to ensure long-term comfort no matter how long you're on the road.

Kia Sorento EX: An Expert in Convenience

The Kia Sorento EX V6 sports the same powerful engine as the preceding trim level and adds several exciting interior upgrades. You'll get leather seating surfaces throughout the cabin as well as a panoramic sunroof for you to fully enjoy the view as you drive.

You'll also get Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Smart Cruise Control with Stop and Go (SCC), and a Smart Power Liftgate™. The latter feature gives you access to the cargo area of your vehicle with just the swipe of your foot under the rear bumper.

Kia Sorento SX: The Best of the Best

Last, but certainly not least, is the Kia Sorento SX. This top-of-the-line model is powered by this model's available V6 engine and offers an array of premium interior features starting with a 14-way power driver's seat with memory. Switch from one driver to another without skipping a beat.

You'll also get a Wireless Phone Charger to keep your devices juiced up for when you arrive at your destination. No need to worry about remembering to bring along your charging cord.

In the center of the cabin, you'll get an 8-inch touchscreen UVO infotainment system with all kinds of capabilities to behold. For starters, it provides turn-by-turn navigation to all your destinations. All you need to do is plug in the address or a point of interest, and you'll be on your way.

The large touchscreen display of this infotainment system can also be used to take advantage of the Surround View Monitor system. With this system, you'll get a 360-degree view of your surroundings for seamless parking and backing out of the driveway.

As a cherry on top, you can also enjoy all of your favorite audio through this trim's premium Harman Kardon® 10-Speaker Surround Sound Audio system. Your favorite tunes, audiobooks, and podcasts have never sounded this clear thanks to this system's Clari-Fi™ technology and external amplifier and subwoofer combo.
