In the past few years, Kia has made a completely new reputation for themselves — complete with an underwhelming name change and a new logo. The Kia Sorento has been one of the brand’s longest-running production models, but it has adapted so well over the past years that it has become a modern and competitive SUV that is worthy of the prestige that the brand has developed as they’ve begun to release completely new models, like the Kia Stinger and Kia Telluride. The 2022 Kia Sorento might not be the brand’s latest and greatest, but along the affordable trim levels, buyers are given more than enough options of drivetrains and safety features that can work for any budget.
