Expert Quotes:

That money does buy an impressive assortment of technological goodies. Upper-level models like the SX we drove feature LCD screens in the center stack and gauge cluster, heated first- and second-row seats (seats for the driver and front passenger are cooled as well), a panoramic sunroof, blind-spot warning, and a ten-speaker Infinity sound system.

Other new equipment—all optional—includes a redesigned sunroof of considerable size with a power shade, ventilated and air-cooled power front seats, heated second-row seats, a 115-volt power inverter, illuminated door handles, and a programmable power rear liftgate.
Car and Driver

Vehicle diagnostics, customized maintenance schedules, roadside assistance and Google Maps join entertainment bits like Pandora and Twitter. Best of all, the services are all free for the first 10 years or 100,000 miles, minus, of course, whatever you already pay for your mobile data plan.

The 2015 Kia Sorento comes in four versions: LX, EX, SX, and SX-L. LX models are offered in four-cylinder or V-6 versions, while all LX, EX, SX, and SX-L models are equipped with the V-6. The fold-away third-row seat is optional on four-cylinder LX models but standard on the rest of the model line. All-wheel drive is on every model.

Even if you stick with the base LX model, you get quite the list of standard equipment. All models include conveniences like power locks, windows, and mirrors; air conditioning; cruise control; 17-inch wheels; Bluetooth; tilt/telescoping steering; steering-wheel audio controls; and a sound system with AM/FM/XM/CD, auxiliary and USB ports.

Automatic climate control, a rearview camera, and UVO can all be had, bundled together, in the base LX. It's a smartphone-driven setup that can offer Google mapping and helpful functions like service scheduling and a parking-lot finder, all free of charge. Although for 2015 you no longer have to upgrade to Infinity audio and the enhanced UVO system in order to get navigation.

On the Sorento EX, you get a large 7-inch LCD screen between the gauges for secondary display of navigation; 18-inch wheels; fog lamps; a leather-wrapped steering wheel; a 115-volt power outlet; and a power driver seat and heating for both front seats. Options include a panoramic sunroof, a power passenger seat, and ventilation for both front seats.

The Sorento SX gets 19-inch wheels; panoramic sunroof; roof rails; navigation; an Infinity audio system; ventilated front seats; and a power tailgate standard.

The SX Limited tops off the lineup with 19-inch chrome wheels, red-painted brake calipers, and inside, Nappa leather seats, a wood-trimmed and heated steering wheel, and heated rear seats as standard equipment.

Infinity audio is optional on the EX and standard on SX and SX-L models. Other options include push-button start, a power tailgate, and blind-spot monitors and reverse parking sensors.

Conclusion

The 2015 Sorento offers an impressive array of features for the money--and now UVO connectivity and the navigation system can be had separately.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
