Here at Car Town Kia, we know there are plenty of drivers in Nicholasville, Lexington, and Frankfort, KY, who have their eye on the 2022 Kia Sorento. It's for this reason we've created the following sneak peek at some of its top attributes. Read on to get a sense of what it's all about.

How Roomy Is the Sorento Inside the Cabin?

Whether you're going to a concert with a group of friends, carpooling to the office, or taking your kids to the movies, you can be confident everyone on board will enjoy an abundance of comfortable space. See the table below for some of the numbers that make this possible.

Shoulder Room

As you can see, all three rows inside the 2022 Kia Sorento allow occupants to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

Is There Plenty of Cargo Space?

The amount of comfort outlined above takes nothing away from having the ability to stow everything you need for the drive. Because there's 12.6 cubic feet behind the third row, no one will have to share their personal space with a backpack, a soccer ball, or a 6-pack of water bottles. Everything will be able to find a place in the back!

Plus, you can count on this commuter to offer plenty of versatility. When you fold down the third-row seatbacks, that 12.6 cubic feet expands to 45 cubic feet! If you have quite a bit more cargo than people, the second row folds down as well. The resulting cargo volume is 75.5 cubic feet.

Can I Expect the 2022 Kia Sorento to Hold Its Own in Terms of Performance?

The answer to this question is a resounding yes! There are two options for the type of engine you'll find under the hood. These are listed below:

  • 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine
  • Turbocharged 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine

The 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine comes standard with the 2022 Sorento. You can rely on it to produce a solid 191 horsepower. The available turbocharged engine puts out an astounding 281 horsepower. With two such diverse possibilities to choose, you'll be able to pick out the engine that makes the most sense for your preferences and lifestyle.

Does the Kia Sorento Offer a Safe Ride?

There are several features that help this Kia model supply a reassuring driving experience. The available Blind-Spot View Monitor is one. The moment you activate the turn signal, a live video of the corresponding blind spot area will appear on the instrument cluster on the dashboard. With its help, you can make confident lane changes every time.   

Lane Departure Warning is a standard 2022 Sorento feature. It uses a camera to detect when you're unintentionally drifting out of your designated lane. As soon as you receive this warning, you can make the necessary adjustments to get back to where you want to be.

Are You Ready To See for Yourself What the Sorento Can Do?
