The 2019 Kia Sorento competes against some heavy hitters.
Chief among its rivals are the Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot, which both do almost everything well.
The Toyota’s biggest asset is its compact car-rivaling hybrid fuel economy, while the Pilot delivers unmatched interior space and flexibility.
The Nissan Pathfinder comes loaded with safety gear and is available at big discounts, but it lacks the precise driving feel of the Kia.
For enthusiastic drivers, the Dodge Durango is the first and last stop to make.
Its optional V-8 is unmatched, but this big SUV comes up short in interior space and refinement.
Of course the Ford Explorer is on your shopping list—your parents probably had one in 1992.
The latest model is graying around its temples but offers a fine ride quality and is usually discounted.
