Kia is known for valuing their customer’s money, and the 2019 Sorento does just that, saving you both at the time of purchase and at the gas pump down the road. Enjoy 22-City mpg and 29-Highway mpg.

Towing? Yeah, the 2019 Kia Sorento does that too!

The base trim Sorento LX boasts a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 pounds! Upgrade to a higher trim level (S, SX, EX, SXL) and get 3,500-pounds of towing capacity with front-wheel drive and 5,000-pounds with all-wheel drive. Don’t fret, Kia has you covered when it comes to the safety of towing.
