Burlington NC - 2020 Kia Sorento's Overview

Exterior – 2020 Kia Sorento

The EX Sport and EX Limited trims are dropped for 2020, giving you a much sportier EX and SX trim. They’ve absorbed all of the advanced exterior perks of the dropped trims and given you those perks at a lower price. The SX boasts 19-inch sport alloy wheels, giving it a powerful stance. Kia describes the design of the Sorento as “ultra-modern,” and they back this up with potent LED lighting all the way around, larger wheel options, sportier stances, and a smart power liftgate that creates ideal loading and unloading. A panoramic sunroof makes things all the sportier and more refreshing on the EX trim.

Mechanical – Sorento specs in Burlington

Your transmission is electronically controlled on the 2020 Sorento, giving you the choice of either a 6-speed automatic or an 8-speed automatic with Sportmatic sport shifter for a more dynamic feel at the wheel and in command of your gears. The result is a supremely confident, rigid drive that lets you feel like you’re taking each and every curve on the road like a king. A 2.4 liter DOHC 16-valve I4 engine is standard on your L and LX trim, while the rest of the lineup gets a 290 horsepower 3.3 liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine. Dynamax all-wheel drive is also an option on each trim of the Sorento, but it’s standard on some models. Using electronic sensors, Dynamax monitors road conditions every moment you’re driving and then shifts power to the right wheel at the right time, giving you a better handling experience.
