New 2021 Kia Sorento

The 2021 Kia Sorento Might Surprise You

Kia is known for its affordable and practical vehicles. Many of these vehicles have become leaders in the industry, and with the Sorento, Kia has given customers a lot to consider. The 2021 Sorento is sure to gain a lot of attention as it hits the market.

It's been transformed from its minivan's shape to one that could be considered an SUV or a crossover. It looks athletic and strong, and it has high-tech amenities that people will appreciate. At Jones Kia in Fallston, we're excited about showing off the Sorento to our Baltimore customers.

Interior

There are three rows in this SUV, and this will help it appeal to those who plan on driving a lot of friends or family around Parkville, MD. You can choose whether to get your Sorento with a second-row bench seat, which can accommodate three passengers or a pair of captain's chairs. One advantage of the captain's chairs is that they can make it a little easier for people to climb in and out of the third row. Even if you get the second-row bench, though, moving the seats around should only take a second.

Cloth seats are standard, and leather ones are available. Higher end models can come with contrast stitching and two-tone steering wheels. The new Sorento's air vents show just how much effort Kia has put into the vehicle's redesign. The vertical air vents look futuristic, and they definitely contribute to the sleek aesthetic of the cabin.

Exterior

In a strategic move, Kia has changed the way we think about the Sorento. It has a wide stance and sits nice and tall, and it looks like a rugged SUV. A bold front grille, available chrome accents, and LED lights help the Sorento shine. Roof racks are available, and there a few different wheel designs available. In terms of paint color, there are a couple of standard colors to choose from, such as Crystal Beige and  Sparkling Silver, and there's also an Aruba Stone shade of green that will surely stand out as you drive around Lutherville.

Trim Levels

There's a wide range of trims available with the 2021 Kia Sorento. The lower trims will be great for people in Bel Air, MD who aren't looking to spend too much on their next vehicles, and the top trims are definitely going to impress people with more sophisticated tastes. The trims are:

  • L
  • LX
  • S
  • EX
  • SX

Safety

If you're at all familiar with the Kia brand, you already know that Kia models come with full safety packages. The Sorento is not different, as it comes with driver-assist technology that can monitor how you're doing, warn you if there's an issue you need to be aware of, and potentially take action to help you avoid an accident or at least reduce the force of any impact.

With forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, your SUV can work to keep you from rear-ending someone, and the available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic monitoring systems can come into play quite frequently.

Technology

Standard on the Sorento is an eight-inch touchscreen. With this touchscreen, you can make calls, send and receive texts, access certain apps, and play your favorite music, all thanks to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The higher trims come upgraded with 10.3-inch touchscreens that have navigation built into them. Wireless charging is available, as is a premium sound system that uses 12 Bose speakers.

Performance

A few different engines are available with the 2021 Sorento. If you go with a lower trim, you'll be using a 2.5-liter engine that can provide you with 191 horsepower. Other trims come standard with turbocharged 2.5-liter engines, and these engines come with 281 horsepower. There's also a hybrid powertrain that uses an electric motor in conjunction with a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine. The hybrid Sorento comes standard with all-wheel drive, and the non-hybrids come with a choice of either front-wheel or all-wheel drive.
