2018 Kia Sorento
The Kia Sorento: A Value-Packed Midsize SUV
Perhaps no manufacturer is quite as successful at packing plenty of value into budget-friendly vehicles as Kia. They do such a remarkable job, in fact, that sometimes people in the market for a new SUV bypass Kia’s supremely worthy options in favor of more prominent brands-and their accompanying higher prices.
The 2018 Kia Sorento dispels the myth that a vehicle can’t be both a high-quality, feature-loaded road warrior and an affordable investment at the same time. This midsize SUV can seat up to seven people with the third row equipped. It offers a comfortable ride and spacious interior, and its initial affordability extends to its fuel economy numbers, which are good and will save you money at the pump for years to come.
Add to that its impressive array of standard features and available upgrades and you’ve got a top contender in the midsize SUV class.
There are seven different trims to choose from in the 2018 Sorento lineup, but whether you choose the L, LX, LX V6, EX 2.0T, EX V6, SX, or SX Limited, you’ll receive a remarkably well-equipped vehicle with prime features like Bluetooth wireless technology,* a rear camera display, a trip computer, remote entry, and an EcoMinder fuel efficiency indicator-plus a whole lot more. The higher you move up the trim levels, the more features and upgrades will appear.
If it sounds like there are a lot of factors to consider when it comes time to choose the Kia Sorento trim that’s right for you-no arguments here. But fortunately for drivers in and around Richmond, Manassas, and Woodbridge, VA, Safford Kia of Fredericksburg is here to help. We have a huge lineup of Sorento models on our lot waiting for you to explore up close and in person, and we also have a friendly and knowledgeable staff standing by to answer your questions and help you find the right Kia for you.
Inside the 2018 Kia Sorento
You’d be forgiven for thinking you were in a much higher-priced vehicle when you sit inside the 2018 Sorento. That’s because you’ll find yourself surrounded by premium materials, relaxing into comfortable, well-cushioned seats with plenty of space at your disposal.
Upgraded interior features include a navigation system, Android Auto / Apple CarPlay integration, a panoramic sunshade, leather seats, and an abundance of desirable, confidence-boosting safety features.
Ample cargo will fit in the conveniently accessible space behind the second and optional third row, and split folding rear seats enable a variety of cargo-versus-passenger configurations as the need arises.
The 2018 Kia Sorento Exterior
The Sorento has a striking design, with sweeping curves and muscular stature that ensures the SUV announces itself on the road, even among the throngs of similar-sized SUVs out there. Customize your Sorento with one of the four available exterior paint options: Snow White Pearl, Titanium Silver, Platinum Graphite, and Ebony Black.
