2017 Kia Sorento Named Most Affordable SUV

The Kia Sorento has long been one of the most affordable SUVs in its class, and the 2017 model year is turning out to be no different. The mid-size model packs in plenty of space and a vast array of standard features while maintaining a competitive price. A powerful engine and extensive warranties make it a hard model to pass on.

The 2017 Kia Sorento boasts seating for up to seven people or as much as 73 cubic feet of cargo space. It’s also available with three engine choices.2017 Kia Sorento

The standard four-cylinder engine delivers a healthy 178 hp while the available V6 engine delivered a massive 252 lb-ft of torque. The new Sorento can even tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Few automakers can match Kia’s long-lasting warranty. The 2017 Sorento comes backed by a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty as well as a five-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.

The new 2017 Kia Sorento starts at an affordable MSRP of $25,600.* It further reinforces its family-oriented design with a spot on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick+ list.

We here at Gossett Kia South are pumped to see the new Sorento offering one of the best values in its class!

Like one would expect from any crossover, the Kia Niro will boast versatile cargo space, like 60/40 split-folding rear seats and an available hidden cargo area with storage compartments.

The seats themselves will offer full support for the driver thanks to the available Integrated Memory Seat that can remember the settings for two drivers. The available heated steering wheel and front seats keeps drivers comfortable on the coldest of days as well.

The upcoming Kia Niro will boast a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor. Together, they’ll produce an estimated 146 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. Kia expects the Niro to earn up to 50 mpg combined.
