2019 Kia Sorento Review


The 2019 Kia Sorento now comes standard with a third row seat and room for seven. It just arrived at Waikem Kia in Massillon, Ohio as the first 2019 model on the Waikem Auto Mile. Along with the standard third-row seat, the new Sorento also features brand new style, all the latest technology and the power and performance you need in your next vehicle. 

With the Sorento on the lot today, we’re excited see you and your family in our Massillon Kia showroom for your test drive. 


Standard third row seat

Like we’ve mentioned before, the most exciting part of the 2019 Kia Sorento is the standard third row seat. More and more, customers are looking for a third row SUV. Previously, the third row was an option on the Sorento, but now we’re making it possible for everyone to get a 7-passenger Sorento. 

You’ll still get plenty of trunk space with all the seats up. When your cargo needs exceed your people needs, it’s easy to fold down that seat and expand your trunk area. 

The Sorento offers ample legroom and plenty of space to easily get in and out of the second and third row. 


Modern safety tech

The Sorento offers all the latest safety technology to keep you heading in the right direction. New this year, the Sorento offers Lane Keep Assist, which will help keep your vehicle in its lane. Also new this year is Driver Attention Warning. If the vehicle detects driver fatigue or unsafe driving habits, the vehicle will issue warning and chimes to tell you to take a break from driving. 

Safety features from previous models include: 

- Autonomous Emergency Braking will automatically apply the brakes if it detects a collision risk.

- Forward Collision Warning includes audio and visual chimes if traffic ahead of you is stopped.

- Lane Departure Warning comes in when you sway or change lanes without signaling 

- Advanced Smart Cruise Control is a radar based system that helps maintain a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. 

- Blind Spot Detection includes visual and audio warnings that a vehicle is in your blind spot.

- Rear Cross Traffic warns you what’s happening behind you, making it safe and easy to back up. 

- Dynamic Bending Lights is an innovative headlight system that prevents you from “blinding” oncoming traffic while using your brights. 

- Rain Sensing Wipers will automatically engage in a rainstorm. 


The 2019 Kia Sorento comes standard with a backup camera. There’s an optional Surround View Monitor that gives you a 360-degree view of what’s happening in front, to the sides and behind the vehicle. This makes it much easier to park the Sorento on the street or in a very tight spot.

Power and Performance

The Sorento offers two engine choices and available all wheel drive to easily get from point A to point B. 

Standard engine is a 2.4L inline-4 GDI mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission capable of delivering 185 horsepower. Your second option a 3.3L V6 engine with 290 horsepower and a new 8-speed automatic transmission. 

Available all wheel drive is designed to automatically route power to the wheel with the most traction. It’s a great SUV on a snowy day and it’s also a great choice for those who like a summer outdoor adventure. 

Towing capacity maxes out at 5,000 when equipped with all wheel drive and the 3.3L V6 engine. 



The Sorento is loaded with entertainment tech. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is now standard on the Sorento. These systems allow for easier connectivity between your car and your phone.

Apps and options are laid out on the center console and it looks just like your phone's screen. From there you can safely and easy make phone calls and audibly send or hear text messages. 

These systems also provide you access to your Google or Apple Maps software, along with other popular apps like Panroda, Yelp, NPR, Spotify, Podcasts, Skype, MLB At Bat, Audiobooks and much more. 

The Sorento is a party on wheels with the updated sound system. The 630-watt, 10-speaker new Harman Kardon® branded stereo system with an 11-channel amplifier features Clari-Fi technology2 and newly integrated QuantumLogic™ Surround Sound technology.2  Clari–Fi works in real-time to rebuild audio details lost in digitally compressed music, while QuantumLogic™ extracts signals from the original recording and redistributes them into an authentic, multidimensional soundstage for playback that is clear, refined and full of detail.  Ultimately, the result is a more robust and enjoyable on-road listening experience.

A new wireless charging pad eliminated the need for a charging cord. 

Stay comfortable on the daily drive with available options like heated and cooled leather seats, sunroof, panoramic roof, heated steering wheel, seat memory, heated mirrors and more.
