The Kia Sorento is the standard, midsize vehicle option from the South Korean automaker. Originally offered as a truck-based body-on-frame compact SUV for its first-generation introduced in 2002, the Sorento was then redesigned and presented as a midsize crossover SUV, which is its vehicle class to this day. This puts its size above the Kia Sportage compact SUV and below the slightly larger Kia Telluride midsize SUV.

In 2020, Kia released its fourth- and current generation of the Sorento to drivers. This major redesign included all-new exterior and interior styling, better fuel economy and power for its standard engine, and hybrid and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) powertrain/model options as a first for the Sorento. Always a reliable and affordable family SUV option for consumers, the new Kia Sorento is now more powerful, more stylish, and more eco-friendly.
