2013 Kia Sorento: Largely unchanged for 2013, the Kia Sorento is a mid-size crossover SUV available with two different engines; a standard 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 175 hp and 169 lb-ft of torque, and an optional 3.5-liter V6 engine that generates 276 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission can be paired with standard FWD or optional AWD to yield an EPA estimated range of 20 mpg city to 30 mpg highway, depending on engine and drivetrain selection. Features include 18-inch alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof, surround sound audio system, navigation system with rear-camera display, audio input jacks, push button start, dual-zone climate control, leather seating, air-cooled driver seat, and heated front seats. Safety is comprised of an advanced airbag system, child-seat LATCH system, anti-lock braking (ABS), electronic stability control (ESC), traction control system (TCS), brake assist system (BA), electronic brake-force distribution (EBD),and tire-pressure monitoring (TPMS). The Sorento is backed by a 5-year/60,000-mile warranty.Read more Read less

The 2013 Kia Sorento is sized between more compact crossover models like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 and mid-size models such as the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander. The Sorento is a little more maneuverable than the larger vehicles while offering just as much practical space. The Sorento was completely redesigned in 2011 and offers a wealth of passenger and cargo space, while its engine lineup offers both power and fuel efficiency. Kia says that the V6's 276-horsepower output is best-in-class, and fuel economy on the 4-cylinder Sorento is among the best in this category. The Sorento's strong warranty--ten years or 100,000 miles for powertrain and five years or 60,000 miles basic warranty, and five years or 60,000 miles of roadside assistance--also help make this a strong choice for families.
