Largely revised a year ago, the Sorento is a midsize SUV with seating for five or seven, depending on the configuration. For 2020, the Dynamax AWD system comes standard on all trims. The top-line SXL is no longer offered (mostly due to the arrival of the new, larger Kia Telluride), but new body colours are available. The 2.4-litre four-cylinder and 3.3-litre V6 engines continue to deliver 185 and 290 horsepower with six- and eight-speed transmissions, respectively.
