Introducing the 2024 Kia Sorento in Albuquerque, NM
In the crowded world of three-row SUVs, the Kia Sorento has been a formidable and solid option for years, thanks to its outstanding well-roundedness and excellent value. The current model is part of its fourth generation, introduced in 2020, which has been given a mid cycle refresh for the upcoming year. Borrowing from the Kia Telluride and EV6, the front end has been significantly restyled, distinguishing it from the 2023 model, and the interior now boasts a curved, dual 12.3-inch panoramic instrument display and touchscreen. The 2024 Kia Sorento in Albuquerque, NM continues to offer a superior combination of comfort, performance, fuel efficiency, and technology making it a highly desirable vehicle.
An Assortment of Trims
You’ll have no trouble finding a new Sorento that checks all the boxes regardless of your lifestyle or driving needs. This popular Kia offers eight trim levels, easily making it one of the most customizable midsize SUVs on the market today. There’s a Sorento to fit every budget, beginning with the base LX model, moving up the lineup to S, X-Line S, EX, X-Line EX, SX, SX Prestige, and top-tier SX Prestige.
Despite significant differences in equipment features, each trim provides incredible bang for your buck. Even the entry-level model comes with a long list of infotainment and safety features, although it’s one of the best bargains in the segment. However, if you want an ultra-luxe ride, consider choosing the SX Prestige or X-Line SX Prestige, which come with upscale features such as leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, and a 12-speaker premium audio system.
If you’re thinking of venturing off the pavement, an X-Line trim is the way to go. Besides the rugged exterior styling, X-Line models are equipped with features like all-wheel-drive with a center-locking differential, lower body cladding, all-terrain tires, high-utility roof rails, and selectable drive modes that make them more adventure-ready than the rest of the lineup. Additionally, they have 1.3 inches more ground clearance, enabling them to tackle off-road obstacles easily and an increased towing capacity of 4,000 pounds.
Looking to save money at the pump? The 2024 Sorento offers three hybrid versions that provide excellent fuel economy. They are the EX Hybrid, the SX Prestige Hybrid, and the SX Prestige Plug-in Hybrid. EPA fuel ratings are 39/35 mpg for city/highway, which is fantastic for a midsize SUV.
2024 Kia Sorento in Albuquerque, NM: A Perfect Interior
Step into the cabin of the new Sorento, and you’ll be surprised at how premium it is for its price tag. It also matches the more futuristic look of the exterior. Made with an abundance of quality materials, the interior has a modern design with flawless fit and finish. Ambient lighting and stitched surfaces bring an even more upscale style.
While the Sorento can accommodate seven occupants, choosing the optional second-row captain’s chairs will reduce that capacity to six. The first and second rows provide ample room for adult passengers, but like most SUVs in this class, the third row is best left for children due to the smaller area. Behind the rear seats, are 12.6 cubic feet of cargo space, 38.5 cubes with the third row folded, and an impressive 75.5 cubic feet with the second row also folded.
While higher trims get the 12.3-inch dual displays, lower trims get the bigger infotainment screen but keep the smaller 4.3-inch instrument cluster display. Wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto are standard across the trim levels.
