The Car Connection's Take

8.0
7.6
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. Despite the 2014 Honda Pilot's truck-like exterior, it's one of more practical and family-friendly models on of the market today.
