2018 Kia Sorento vs 2017 Kia Sorento

Proudly Serving Orlando, FL

If you're shopping for a midsize SUV, the Kia Sorento is likely on your list. After all, it's ranked as the best overall vehicle in its class and the best three-row SUV for the money by U.S. News and World Report. This outstanding value can seat up to seven passengers comfortably. Read on to learn about the changes Kia has made to the Sorento for the 2018 model year.

Performance

There are no performance changes to the 2018 Kia Sorento. Both the 2017 and 2018 models can be equipped with either a four-cylinder engine that provides 185 horses, a turbo-four that ups the ante to 240 horsepower, and a 290-horsepower V6. With the latter engine, the towing capacity is boosted from 2,000 to 5,000 pounds.

Appearance

The 2017 and 2018 Sorentos are virtually identical in appearance. However, if you choose the LX model and add all-wheel drive for 2018, you'll automatically get the optional third row. Front headrests and headlights have been upgraded in every model.

Features

A rearview camera and automatic headlights are now standard on all Kia Sorento models; these features were optional on the base model for 2017. The LX model, which is one trim up from the base model, can be upgraded with a new equipment package including two-zone automatic climate control and a 7-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

The mid-level EX trim features new standard features for 2018, including power-folding outside mirrors, a 7-inch digital driver information screen, a power liftgate, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The latter feature is also standard in the SX and SX Limited trims for 2018. These models also get new rain-sensing windshield wipers.
