The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
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 Porsche Macan swings for the crossover fences, with Cayenne performance in a more tidy, somewhat more cost-effective package.
