Overall Rating: 8.2
Bottom Line: The 2014 Kia Sorento gets a quick fix for its minor flaws: they brighten the cabin and soften the ride.
The Kia Sorento isn't completely new for 2014; instead it's a very smart, calculated mid-cycle refresh that addresses nearly all the ways the current generation might have missed the mark. New materials, a little more interior space, and much-improved infotainment altogether grace the cabin with a more refined, upscale look and feel, while a new direct-injection V-6 puts the powertrain on the same ground as luxury crossovers. With improved ride and handling, multi-mode steering, and other new features, this collection of changes is enough to make the 2014 Sorento one of the top picks in the class.
