New 2017 Kia Sorento – Release Date and Info

2017 Kia Sorento Review

If you are looking for an appealing alternative to five- and seven-passenger crossover SUVs that were previously a class before it, the bigger, more sophisticated and better to drive 2017 Kia Sorento is definitely a worthy look. Some of its strengths include excellent crash test scores, attractive and well-made cabin, user-friendly controls, ample value for the money, and a versatile second-row seat. Its release date should be expected sometime in the middle of 2017.

See, the previous-generation Sorento could be viewed as a slightly bigger alternative to compact SUVs like the Toyota RAV4, with matching driving dynamics and interior quality. As the titular Malcom would attest, it can be tough being in the middle ground between midsize and compact SUVs.

It has grown up both figuratively and literally to become a more of a smaller alternative to larger, more sophisticated family crossovers like the Toyota Highlander. For 2017, buyers should expect a mildly redesigned Sorento that carries on with its tradition, but its needle now swings a bit one side off-center to another.

And given its five- and seven-passenger configurations, it’s akin to having a crossover like the 2017 Ford Edge while still undercutting them in terms of the window sticker. Cabin materials give up a little (if anything) to pricier alternatives, the styling is more attractive inside and out, and the feature content embodies the term “generous.” In overall, the changes for 2017 go beyond greater interior and cargo room. In fact, those increases are rather negligible compared to the increases in driving and interior refinement.

Mechanical improvements include an improved steering, an upgraded suspension, and a strengthened structure, which together create a more refined driving, comfortable, and substantial experience.

In conclusion, we are impressed by Kia’s efforts in trying to offer a strong, value-rich 2017 Kia Sorento. Other alternatives you could also check out before committing to the Sorento include the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 2017 Ford Edge, 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, and the “A” rated 2017 Toyota Highlander.
