The 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.
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.
The Nissan Pathfinder comes loaded with safety gear and is available at big discounts, but it lacks the precise driving feel of the Kia.
Of course the Ford Explorer is on your shopping list—your parents probably had one in 1992.
The latest model brings excellent road manners and interior space to the fore, as well as a hybrid model for the first time.
