Find out more details about the 2014 Kia Sorento. The compact/midsize crossover introduces an updated interior, new powertrains, and advanced safety features.

The 2014 Kia Sorento is about to enter the market with major updates that spell excellent value in a modern family vehicle. New features include a revised chassis, a new V6 engine, an upscale interior, and more advanced safety technologies. It also adds an optional third-row seat in the mix, bringing the total seating capacity to seven. Restyled front and rear fascias, new taillights, and a slightly wider stance renders a more athletc profile for the 2014 Kia Sorento from its predecessor. But the biggest highlight would be a completely redesigned suspension that delivers safer handling dynamics for a driving experience that is smooth but not floaty. Several NVH-reducing measures have also been applied, resulting in a whisper-quiet interior. The instrument cluster has been reworked with a new center stack that has sleeker-looking controls. Additional soft-touch materials are incorporated in the enhanced cabin. An eight-inch touchscreen controls navigation with infotainment functions is also available for the 2014 Kia Sorento. The new Sorento upholds the Kia’s overall commitment to delivering safety and exceptional value to customers. Kia Sorento was awarded a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, as well as a five-start crash-test rating.

The new version retains the 106.3-inch wheelbase of its predecessor but the modestly restyled body shell has undergone some heavy engineering, sporting a new subframe supporting the front suspension, a new strut-tower brace, and greater percentage of high-strength steel. Engineers claim an 18% improvement in torsional rigidity. The track is slightly wider for this year’s model and the multilink rear suspension is fitted with new bushings and mounts. Upgraded spring rates and shock absorbers will further enhance steering response. An electric power-steering system will be introduced on all models.

Power and Performance:Entry-level models for the 2014 Kia Sorento makes last year’s mid-level direct-injection 175 horsepower 2.4-liter four as the new base engine for the 191 hp 2.4-liter four with direct injection, which was optional for previous versions. Standard on up-level models and optional on base Sorentos is Hyundai’s direct-injected 290 hp 3.3-liter V6, replacing the 276 hp 3.5-liter V6 of the old Kia. The unit generates 252 lb-ft. of torque. All Sorento models come with six-speed automatic gearbox. Front-wheel-drive is standard for all models with an all-wheel-drive option available at an extra cost. The all-wheel-drive delivers better traction and reduced understeer through a yet to be specified torque-vectoring system.
Interiors and Special Features:The 2014 Kia Sorento offer four trim levels: LX, EX, SX, and SX-Limited. A seven-inch TFT display enhances the instrument panel of all models except the LX. The interior retains the same appearance except for a more stylish look overall. The infotainment system comes with voice activation and some other upgrades. The navigation system even offers access to Google Maps and Google Places. An optional third row expands the seating capacity from five to seven passengers, leaving 9 cubic feet of cargo space available. Both second and third rows can be tucked away to allow for more room, up to 72 cubic feet.
Safety features:All Sorento models feature the standard dual front, front side, and 1sr/2nd row side curtain airbags. Traction and stability control systems are also in place. Blind spot monitoring systems are available for upper-level models. The 2014 Kia Sorento is one of the best-looking SUVs in the market. The larger seating capacity will attract buyers who wish to accommodate more passengers. The sophisticated design and installed technologies promise optimum convenience for both long and short trips.
