The Kia Sorento has been completely redesigned for 2021. Gone is the rounder appearance that gives off a mini-van vibe and its place is a bigger more defined design. The new Sorento features a larger build that allows for more interior space and comes equipped with upgraded features on every trim. A new hybrid powertrain trim gets added to the lineup as well.
The 2021 Sorento gives you options so you can choose the drive you enjoy most. The new standard 2.5L direct-injection engine is power enough with 191 horsepower while remaining fuel efficient at a combined mpg of 26. For the ultimate power upgrade, the turbocharged powertrain features 281 horsepower and 311 lb-ft of torque. Also new for this year’s lineup is a turbocharged charged hybrid powertrain.
The new 2021 Kia Sorento wasn’t only redesigned to look more capable but to be more capable as well no matter the road conditions. Adaptive All-Wheel Drive with Lock Mode, Torque Vectoring Cornering Control, and Traction & Stability Control are just a few of the new features that upgrade the Sorento’s capabilities to handle changing road conditions.
With a bigger build comes a larger interior for the 2021 Sorento. The newly designed interior space not only offers premium upgrades like 3D-embossed genuine leather seating, but there are more available seating configurations as well. You can opt for second-row captain’s chairs and easily fold the second and third rows down for additional cargo space.
Along with a bigger interior design, the new Sorento features bigger and better tech. A new 10.25-inch touchscreen with built in navigation makes it easier to view maps, apps, and more. Bring your smartphone along and take advantage of wireless connectivity with Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
The 2021 Kia Sorento offers a full lineup of safety features that are enhanced and equipped on more trims. Standard features include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assistance, Rear Occupant Alert, and more. Blind Spot Assistance as well as a 360-degree surround view monitor take the guess-work out of the areas you can’t see when driving or parking.
