The All-New 2017 KIA Sorento

The 2017 Kia Sorento, as featured in Kia’s recent ads with Bo Jackson and Brian Bosworth, was fully redesigned for the previous model year. This year, the brand has built upon the redesign even further, creating the best Sorento yet and something all St. Louis Kia fans are going to love.

For 2017, the Sorento features better smartphone integration, more advanced safety features, and the option of three different engines. The Sorento also offers two additional trim levels- the new Advanced Technology Package (which features Kia’s latest driver assistance features) and the Advanced Touring Package.

Standard on both the L and LX trims, power comes from a 185-horsepower 2.4-liter engine. A 240-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is exclusive to the EX. In all Sorento trim options, torque is routed through a six-speed automatic transmission.

As far as the interior goes, the 2017 Sorento will offer the ability to configure the cabin for either five-passenger seating or seven-passenger seating- a very popular option in previous years. Regardless of trim, Sorento purchasers can choose from cloth, leather or Nappa Leather upholstery.

In addition to the 2017 Sorento’s upgrades, this vehicle has also earned itself a Top Safety Pick+ status from the IIHS, when equipped with the front crash prevention technology.
