2023 Kia Sorento: Buyers Guide

With its sleek compact style and myriad of standard and optional features, Kia Sorento has already won a large fan base. But drivers are enthusiastic about the 2023 Kia Sorento release, which promises even more features and more modern stylings.

Thus far in its recent incarnations, the Kia Sorento has managed to maintain a sleek, compact design while still sporting room for six. There aren’t many compact SUVs that offer third row seating, but you’ll find it with the Sorento. As Kia gears up for Sorento’s 2023 release, you’ll want to get to know its updates if you’re in the market for a compact SUV.


The 2023 Sorento, like past Sorento models, is expected to boast a value-driven design. That’s not surprising as drivers expect good value from Kia autos. Not only is the 2023 expected to feature a well-built design, it’s also expected to come equipped with more features and come with an exceptional warranty–and most drivers already know that Kia is a warranty leader. Expect Sorento to come with a five-year bumper-to-bumper 60,000-mile warranty along with a 100,000-mile powertrain warranty or 10 years. While there’s likely going to be a bump in price for top-tier Sorento models, customers can expect plenty of value to accompany any increase they see across the board.


While Kia’s best-in-class warranties often attract potential customers to Kia dealerships, it’s the performance of Kia’s vehicles that typically seal the deal. Kia prioritizes vehicle performance, and the 2023 Sorento is expected to deliver with an impressive acceleration to 60 mph in under seven seconds. Its powerful performance had drawn comparisons with Honda and Volkswagen. Customers should look for the model’s 8-speed dual clutch as well as new off-road drive modes that complement its seamless highly merging.

Tech Features

Today’s auto shoppers expect innovative technology features and that’s what they can expect in the 2023 Kia Sorento. Look for clear, vibrant graphics on the SUV’s 10.25-inch touchscreen. The Sorento comes standard with built-in navigation and a dynamic instrument panel. There’s also an onboard Bose audio system and voice command system. Drivers needn’t worry about smartphone compatibility as both Apple and Android pair seamlessly with the new Sorento. The vehicle also features eight USB ports and a wireless charger. Hybrid and plug-in Sorentos will also be available.

Interior Space

The 2023 Kia Sorento is designated a compact SUV, but its interior space is certainly ample. The third row of the vehicle is quite suitable for adults and there’s plenty of leg room to enjoy. The vehicle can seat seven if necessary but six passengers can ride quite comfortably. Of course, if you’re not transporting people, there’s plenty of space for cargo. The third row seat can be easily folded down to make room for a wide range of goods from groceries to home improvement supplies.


Car experts look for the 2023 Kia Sorento to tone down its style details for a more modern look. While many other designers have already embraced a more minimalist styling aesthetic, previous Sorentos hung onto their trim details. This year, however, promises a more streamlined, sleeker appearance, which will add to the vehicle’s sporty look. Although this vehicle can carry as many passengers as a mini van, it’s still an SUV at heart, so expect its exterior to reflect its sportier side.

Fuel Economy

At a time when gas prices are breaking records for their high cost per gallon, it’s no surprise that drivers are looking for vehicles that offer great mileage. To that end, compact SUVs like the Kia Sorento have a lot to offer in terms of space, performance, and fuel efficiency. Gas mileage may vary depending on the engine option drivers choose, but the turbocharged engine on the new Sorento should earn drivers 27 highway miles per gallon and 22 city miles.

2023 Kia Sorento: An All-Around Great Option

When customers weigh what other compact SUVs have to offer in comparison with the Sorento, they’re likely to be impressed by Sorento’s offerings and value. Its easy-to-use infotainment system, three rows of seating, turbo engine option, refined styling, robust warranty, and reliable performance make it an excellent option.
