Exterior – Kia Dealer serving Detroit MI

If you’re writing the next chapter of mid-size SUV, you’ll definitely need everything found on the new Sorento exterior. The brand went more rugged in 2021, with earthy and outdoorsy colors like Aruba Green, Crystal Beige, and Glacial White Pearl. You can really go hot or cold with your colors here, or you could get a little bit artsy and grab a Sapphire Blue Sorento. If you’re a sporty buyer, you’ll want to check out the Sorento S. It’s bedazzled in 18-inch alloy wheels with Gloss Black Pockets and sports all those darkened exterior features (such as a darker grille) that make a mid-size model look so special and modern. There’s an SX-Prestige model in 2021 that you won’t want to miss. It features power folding exterior mirrors and an X-Line inspired design. And for the biggest wheel options, so with the SX. It gets standard 20-inch gloss black alloy wheels.

Interior – 2021 Kia Sorento near Detroit MI

The 2020 Sorento held back some on interior style elements. There were definitely upscale features available and some serious technology, but they went more for economy on low and mid-trims, and then they saved their big guns for the last top of the line trim. This year, you’ll find luxurious refinement built into trims throughout the lineup. For example, the LX base model features an 8-inch touchscreen display with a rear view monitor standard. You don’t have to upgrade to get that already large 8-inch screen. The S gets lively SynTex seat trim and the option for a panoramic sunroof. The second trim already has push-button start. Your SX grabs a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system that’s one of the largest in its class. It’s a joy to use and very responsive to all your commands (voice command is also standard). Your SX-Prestige rocks leather trim, heated and ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a huge 12.3″ digital instrument display, and a highly adjustable driver’s seat that’s ergonomic. Second row captain’s chairs can be added to some trims, while they’re standard on others. Everyone in the entire Sorento feels like the star of the show.

Kia Sorento Mechanical specs

The two powertrain options on the Sorento begin with the 2.5L 191 horsepower base model’s standard engine. It also gets 182 lb-ft of torque to your wheels in a very dominating way. However, starting on the SX, you get a 2.5L turbocharged engine that’s rated at 281 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. Now, that’s working with some power. Thanks to its 8-speed dual clutch automatic transmission, you also get a more race-inspired gearbox that really lets you take your Sorento into a much more glorious era of drive quality.

Safety – 2021 Kia Sorento dealer

Kia’s Drive Wise has won an entire battalion of safety awards, and it always gets great scores on safety. However, it’s going the extra mile this year with all new features like Enhanced Automatic emergency braking with junction turn and cyclist detection. In the past, pedestrian detection just picked up pedestrians on foot. And that was a great stride forward for automobile safety. Some pedestrians are riding smaller vehicles, though, and you need to be able to pick those up, too. Now your Sorento is smart enough to detect that cyclist before a tragedy occurs. The vehicle can bring itself to a full stop before a collision. Forward and Reverse Parking Distance Warning is a great feature on the SX-Prestige. You’ll find yourself able to avert collisions from all angles when you’re driving a Sorento. That’s why we highly recommend it for safety.
