The 2015 Kia Sorento comes highly recommended to consumers shopping for a small or midsize crossover SUV with a third-row seat, thanks to its well-mannered driving characteristics, roomy interior and generous standard and optional features.
After last year’s significant but essentially under-the-skin “redesign,” the Kia Sorento carries over for 2015 and as such it remains a solid pick in its class. This Kia offers a few key features — namely available V6 power and a third-row seat — not typically offered on the compacts while still not being as large and unwieldy as traditional midsizers. That combination could be the happy medium that satisfies families looking to get maximum bang for their crossover buck.
In addition to its endearing duality, the Kia Sorento also earns points for its solid build quality, comfortable ride, generous standard features and user-friendly electronic interfaces.
Standard safety features for the 2015 Kia Sorento include antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, hill start assist, front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags for the first two rows and active front headrests. A rearview camera and rear parking sensors are standard on the SX models. The same is true for the Uvo telematics system; its safety features include roadside assistance, collision notification and restrictions and tracking for secondary drivers. A blind-spot monitoring system is standard on SX models.
In government crash tests, the Kia Sorento earned a perfect five-star overall rating, along with five-star ratings for its performance in front- and side-impact crash protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated the 2015 Sorento with its top score of “Good” for moderate-overlap frontal-impact, side-impact, roof-strength and whiplash reduction (seats and head restraints) tests.
While cruising at highway speeds, the Sorento is exceptionally quiet, with a minimum of road noise. For the most part, we also like the way it rides, as the suspension soaks up most bumps with ease. When navigating the confines of a parking lot, the big Kia feels smaller than it really is and in general it’s quite a bit more maneuverable than larger seven-passenger SUVs.
