The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
6.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Kia Sorento skimps on third-row seating, but in all other respects it’s a more than respectable crossover SUV. The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder three-row crossover steers into the middle lane among rivals with just-enough for most families.
