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 Tahoe is the anti-crossover--except where its savvy cabin and infotainment features are concerned--with almost all the capability of a full-size pickup.
