2020 Kia Sorento Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.0

 The 2020 Kia Sorento has one of the nicest looking interiors in the class, ample space in its first two rows, and user-friendly infotainment features. However, its cargo area is small for the segment, and third-row space is minimal.

  • "In our interior evaluation, we were struck by the Sorento's premium character. The materials are almost uniformly nice, with ample soft-touch surfaces, and there's a vibe of cohesiveness and refinement that was absent in earlier models." -- Autotrader
  • "If your family is at the stage where messes and spills are inevitable, there's also good news if you don't opt for the leather interior -- the cloth on the other models has been treated with YES Essentials to resist stains and quell odors." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
  • "The space inside the Kia is nicely trimmed, with an attractive dashboard, [and] plenty of soft-touch materials." -- Car and Driver (2019)

Seating

There's seating for up to seven people in the Sorento. The front seats are supportive for long commutes, but some critics find the bottom cushions to be on the short side. Nonetheless, there's ample space for adults to sit comfortably in the first two rows and enough space for children in the third row.

Cloth upholstery and manually adjustable front seats are standard, while leather upholstery a 10- or 14-way power-adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are available.

For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the second row's outboard seats and an upper tether for the second row's middle seat.

  • "There's plenty of room and comfort in the first and second rows, but the third row is for small passengers and short trips." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "A bit of a squeeze is required for adults to get into the third row, and second-row riders must slide the seats forward to give the wayback passengers adequate legroom. There’s enough room back there for short trips, and the third row stacks up competitively against other not-so-XL-size rivals." -- Car and Driver (2019)
  • "Firm padding in the front seats is a plus on long trips, but the bottom cushions may prove too short for some. The nicely shaped second-row seats slide and recline. The third row's bottom cushion is basically on the floor; comfort is in short supply." -- Edmunds (2018)

Interior Features

The Sorento comes standard with Kia's intuitive UVO infotainment system. It features a 7-inch touch screen, handy physical controls, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a USB port, and a six speaker stereo. Reviewers praise the UVO system for providing clear graphics and quick menu responses to user inputs. A rearview camera is also standard.

Two additional USB ports, an 8-inch touch screen, a 10-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a wireless device charger, navigation, satellite radio, and HD Radio are available.

Several active safety features are also optional, including front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera system, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and driver drowsiness monitoring.

  • "The gauges are crisp and clear, while the optional 8-in touchscreen features great graphics and intuitive operation." -- Autotrader
  • "We’re big fans of the control layout, which combines a simple-to-operate touchscreen with volume and tuning knobs and clearly marked HVAC controls. You’d think it would be easy to put together such a friendly and intuitive assortment of controls, but many other automakers fail to do so, and Kia deserves credit for not trying to reinvent the wheel here." -- Car and Driver (2019)
  • "The SX trim's intuitive 8-inch touchscreen features a distinctive font, slick graphics and quick responses. Other controls are logically arrayed with no hitches." -- Edmunds (2018)

Cargo

The Sorento has below-average cargo numbers for the midsize SUV class. Behind the third-row seats, there's only 11.3 cubic feet of space. You'll find 38 cubic feet when the third row is folded down and 73 cubic feet when both the second and third rows are folded.

  • "One of our few gripes: The cargo area is pretty small compared to the rest of this segment." -- Autotrader
  • "There's not a lot of cargo space behind the third row either, although the seats fold down to expand that dramatically." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The third row folds easily via pull-straps on the seatbacks (not much room behind them). The second row folds via nifty trunk-mounted remote handles. Cargo capacity is ample but still trails that of three-row rivals. Plenty of nooks for personal items." -- Edmunds (2018)
