Previewing the 2025 Kia Sorento near Santa Fe, NM

 

If you’re on a mission to find a new midsize SUV, get over to Fiesta Kia, and you’ll be spoiled for choice! Not only do we offer the outstanding Telluride and all-electric EV9, which both provide three rows of seating, but we also have an excellent selection of three-row Sorento and Sorento Hybrid models. 

For the traditional gasoline-powered 2025 Kia Sorento near Santa Fe, NM, front-wheel drive and a non-turbo 4-cylinder are standard. A more robust turbo-four and all-wheel drive are available, while a rugged, off-road-ready X-Pro version is at the top of the lineup. There is also a hybrid variant and a plug-in hybrid model, which we’ll review in more detail later.

Even if you’re on a budget, the entry-level Sorento models bring a lot to the table, including plenty of driver-assist tech, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and many other convenience features. Although it won’t tow as much as the Telluride and its third row isn’t quite as spacious as its bigger sibling, the Kia Sorento is still an exceptional midsize SUV with a wide range of options.

 

 

 

 

New for the 2025 Model Year

The ICE Sorento was given a midcycle refresh for 2024, which brought a restyled front and rear end, interior upgrades, and new paint and upholstery options. A faux skidplate at the back adds extra toughness in the looks department. The 2025 hybrid and PHEV Sorento models have now received the same styling and cabin upgrades as the gas-powered models, meaning all versions of the Sorento now have the updated multimedia infotainment system (with a 12.3-inch touchscreen as standard) that integrates wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto no matter which trim level you choose. 

 

Power Options in the 2025 Kia Sorento near Santa Fe, NM

When you choose the Sorento, you’ll have a broad selection of engine options, as well as the choice of front- or all-wheel drive. The standard mill is a 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder with 191 horsepower, and the available turbocharged 4-cylinder boasts 281 hp! Both of these are mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, while the hybrids utilize a 6-speed automatic. 

The Sorento Hybrid uses a turbo 1.6-liter 4-cylinder ICE engine with an electric motor to produce 227 hp. The AWD Sorento PHEV features the same setup, but delivers 261 hp thanks to a more powerful electric motor. If you want the top-tier X-Pro trim, it comes only with the turbo-four, plus a center-locking differential, fatter, all-terrain tires, and 17-inch wheels. 

 

Interior Comfort and Convenience

Soft-touch materials, an attractive layout, and solid build quality highlight the Sorento’s interior. A clean and uncluttered dashboard features the 12.3-inch infotainment screen and incorporates two upright air vents on either end. Double stitched door panel surfaces and seat inserts, along with ambient lighting, lend an upscale feel to the cabin, and an assortment of cupholders and storage space add to its practicality. 

A pair of captain’s chairs can be traded out for the second row bench seat for a posher look, but if you need the most room, keep the bench, as the third row is best left for children- adults may feel cramped. With the seats in all rows in the upright position, there is 13 cubic feet of cargo space, 39-45 cubes behind the second row (depending on seat configuration), and 76 cubic feet with the middle and rear seats folded.

A curved panoramic display includes the infotainment screen and a 4.3-inch digital instrument cluster, but the higher trims swap it for a larger 12.3-inch configurable gauge display. Besides smartphone integration, the Sorento offers a wireless charging pad, a back-seat entertainment system, and a 12-speaker Bose audio system.
