The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
6.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Kia Sorento is a right-sized, well-priced three-row crossover SUV for those who can skimp a little on third-row space. The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder has value and interior flexibility as its assets, but this crossover SUV is ripe for a redesign.
