2017 Kia Sorento Staten Island, New York
Island Kia of Staten Island, NY introduces the all-new award-winning 2017 Kia Sorento. With utility and rugged good looks, the Sorento is a value-oriented ride for those seeking to avoid the minivan stigma. A 185-hp four-cylinder is standard; a 240-hp turbo four and a 290-hp V-6 are optional. Five- or-seven-passenger versions are available. The optional navigation comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and premium cabin fittings have the Sorento fighting above its weight. A six-speed automatic and front-wheel drive are standard; all-wheel-drive models can tow up to 5000 lb.
The 2017 Kia Sorento attempts to cover two markets with one entry, going after the competition’s five- and seven-passenger mid-size crossover SUVs alike. With comfortable seating for five, the four-cylinder Sorento L, LX, and EX models set their sights squarely on vehicles such as the Ford Edge and the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.
The Kia Sorento enters 2017 with a modicum of changes, the most significant of which affect the top-of-the-line Sorento SXL. No longer available with Kia’s 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, the SXL is now a V-6–only affair. As such, all SXL versions are equipped with HID headlights (which now swivel to follow steering inputs), a 360-degree camera system, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and an electric parking brake. The 2017 Sorento is available with many driver-assistance systems including Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Advanced Smart Cruise Control1, Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), and HID headlights with Dynamic Bending Light (DBL) technology, high-beam assist (HBA)1, and rear parking assist1.
The 2017 Sorento carries over into its second model year with new technology such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay (late availability) in addition to two new packages that add greater flexibility – the Advanced Touring Package and the Advanced Technology Package. The third-generation Sorento is available in five trim levels. The handsomely equipped LX, EX, SX, and SXL models are powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that produces 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft. of torque, or a 3.3-liter V-6 that makes 290 horsepower and 252 lb.-ft. of torque, while the EX trim is also available with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 240 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Sorento continues to offer an advanced AWD system that automatically routes power to the wheel with the most traction, while inside, the Sorento delivers class-up premium materials, offering the perfect combination of refinement and capability.
