Introducing the 2019 Kia Sorento
The perfect getaway vehicle.
Built to adapt.
The 2019 Sorento upgrades standard utility with optimal versatility to fit any lifestyle, whether in-town or off-road. The exterior facelift adds sleek, sculpted lines to its bold wide stance, while newly available LED headlights illuminate your drive with a modern touch to match its personality. Best of all, with standard 3-row, 7-person seating, you can comfortably fit even more friends on your road to adventure. Whether you're shopping in town, or camping out, the new 2019 Sorento makes extra room for fun and adventure with its standard 7-person seating, and a flexible, spacious interior that adapts to your needs. Second-row sliding seats give rear passengers easy third-row access, while standard Remote Release lets you conveniently fold down the second row while standing at the rear of the vehicle to expand space as you pack in your cargo. Get a helping hand next time you load up. Intuitive and automatic, the available hands-free Smart Power Liftgate opens when it senses your smart key—with no hands or feet required. And the liftgate can be adjusted to your height preference, making closing the hatch even easier for you, and easier on the ceiling of your garage.

It's a crowded road out there, but you can maneuver with added confidence thanks to Kia’s innovative Kia Drive Wise driver-assist technologies. Newly available additions include Driver Attention Warning (DAW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), and Park Distance Warning – Forward (PDW-F). Get extra help with your blind spots with an advanced radar-based detection system that sends out visual or auditory signals to help warn you of objects not in your field of view. Enjoy the added control and convenience of available Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go (SCC). SCC is designed to adapt to your driving environment by automatically applying the brakes, or accelerator, to help maintain a predetermined distance from a vehicle it detects in front of you. In fact, it’s so smart it can bring the vehicle to a complete stop and start off again with just a tap of the accelerator pedal in certain circumstances. Get a little help staying alert and aligned. Available Lane Departure Warning (LDW) monitors the position of your Sorento under certain conditions and will provide an audible alert if you drift. As an added measure, available Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) may intervene by applying corrective steering if it senses you drifting outside your lane. Ease into tight spaces a little bit easier with this advanced drive-assist technology. Using sonar sensors integrated in the Sorento’s bumpers, the available Park Distance Warning Forward and Reverse gives an audible warning when the system detects you nearing other vehicles or objects. And for a comprehensive sense of space, the available Surround View Monitor (SVM) gives you a 360° bird’s eye view of your Sorento in relation to surroundings.
Peace of mind comes standard.
For over a decade, the Sorento has reflected Kia’s commitment to safety. That legacy continues with upgraded features and technology like Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD), as well as a reinforced body of 53% advanced high-strength steel.
