Description:
Pros:
  • Lively and fuel efficient engine
  • Just the right amount of passenger and cargo space
  • Optional flat-folding third row seat
  • Lots of standard equipment makes it a strong value/li>
  • 60 month/60k mile warranty
Cons:
  • Soft handling and little too much body roll when cornering
  • Hard dash plastic pieces
  • Third row seating suitable only for pint-size munchkins
Ruling: The 2011 Kia Sorento has lost its truck-based platform and is now one of the most comfortable-riding and powerful midsize crossovers available.

Though the Sorento can cost more than $29,000 if you opt for the highest trim, a modestly equipped base model is quite a good value. Reviewers like the new Sorento so much that they say it gives the class leaders a run for their money.

The Sorento comes in two trims, LX and EX, with available full-time all-wheel drive and a choice of a four- or six-cylinder engine.

CarReview's opinion of the 2011 Kia Sorento

Likes:
  • Third-row seating
  • Good power & decent MPG
  • Great backseat AC
  • Panoramic sunroof
Dislikes
  • Narrow cabin
  • Temperamental iPod jack
  • Slightly harsh ride

Verdict: The Kia Sorento is a solid and practical performer that exceeds expectations. Kia has come a long way in terms of quality and design, now if only they could do something about resale values and brand equity.
