The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Kia Sorento gets a little better each year, and its combination of elegance, versatility, and value makes it a great pick for families. The 2015 Chevy Suburban hasn't forgotten it's an SUV--but the new interior and infotainment features are welcome crossover cues, while the powertrain gets some welcome modernization.
