2020 Kia Sorento

$26,990 | U.S. News Score: 8.1/10

Winner of our 2020 Best Three-Row SUV for the Money award, the 2020 Kia Sorento offers one of the lower starting prices in the midsize SUV class. Impressively, the Sorento’s interior doesn’t reflect its budget-friendly sticker; the cabin is well-crafted and is nicer than what you’ll find in many more expensive rivals. Passenger space in this three-row vehicle is good. The first two rows are adult friendly. Like other midsize SUVs, however, the Sorento’s third row is best left to children. Cargo space, while good, doesn’t match that of many competitors. 

Wherever you sit, you’ll find plenty of soft-touch materials. Up front, the standard 7-inch touch screen responds well to inputs and is easy to navigate. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a USB port, and Bluetooth are all standard. The base engine has decent power and helps deliver good fuel economy for the class: 22 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway. Add the available V6 engine or all-wheel drive, however, and those numbers will, naturally, drop a bit. Whichever powertrain you select, you’ll enjoy a smooth ride and easy maneuverability in tight spots.
