2019 Kia Sorento: Design and Features
2019 Kia Sorento - Design Changes and Tech Upgrades
The 2019 Kia Sorento is a fully redesigned new crossover-SUV, with updates to everything from its great new look to its updated powertrain lineup and smarter infotainment. The Sorento remains a go-to family SUV of choice for Calgary buyers thanks to its ergonomic interior and comfortable all-weather readiness.
The 2019 Kia Sorento is now more robust in appearance, with a revised front grille and better headlamps. Smaller LED fog lamps and optional full LED headlamps are now available. The tail lamps are made to match, with a new lighting pattern for better safety and visibility. The strong look of the Kia Sorento remains in place with the 2019 model, but is softened with some upscale additions like softer fender surrounds.
Inside, the 2019 Kia Sorento sees more technology to go with its already exceptional comfort. Now standard in all Kia Sorento models is a color touchscreen featuring UVO infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Also available are a wireless charging pad, a larger touchscreen option, and more connectivity choices.
The 2019 Sorento also now sees more safety equipment as standard in the mid-level EX trim and higher. This includes active safety systems as well as driver assistance features that include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. Lane-keeping assist and driver attention warning are also available in the 2019 Kia Sorento. A new four-wheel lock mode for all-wheel drive models adds the ability to even split power between the front and rear wheels to get out of those hard to negotiate situations.
Engine Upgrades and Performance
Under the hood, the 2019 Kia Sorento in Calgary will keep the 185-horsepower 2.4-liter GDI four-cylinder engine that's kept the Sorento going with dependable performance. This mates to a new six-speed automatic transmission that offers more efficiency tuning and better overall performance. A newly revised 3.3-liter V6 produces 290 horsepower and uses a better eight-speed automatic transmission to allow for both more efficiency and towing for up to 2,268 kilograms. Fuel economy in the 2019 Kia Sorento is rated at up to 10.7 l/100km in the city and 8.2 l/100km on the highway.
