The Sorento is available in front- or all-wheel drive configurations with a choice of two engines; either a 185-hp direct injection 2.4-liter four-cylinder or a 290-hp 3.3-liter V6. The four-cylinder is pared to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the V6 is mated to a nine-speed. Alloy wheels, steering wheel audio controls, a rearview camera, fully automatic headlamps and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are just a few of the standard features offered. Some of the available options are dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, navigation system and proximity entry.
For 2019 the Sorento is refreshed with new headlights and taillights, updated front and rear fascias, and now comes exclusivley with seven seats. Last year's 2.0-liter turbo has been dropped, but the V6's nine-speed transmission is all new.
