The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Kia Sorento gets a quick fix for its minor flaws: they brighten the cabin and soften the ride. The Toyota Venza gets substantial improvements in entertainment and connectivity for 2013; otherwise it remains a comfortable, practical, and somewhat stylish pick for those who don't need a rugged SUV.
