2018 Kia Sorento driving on the highway at night

The crossover SUV remains the most popular vehicle on the U.S. market today thanks to its well-rounded nature. In fact, it’s the crossover’s high-tech features, dynamic driving experience and a spacious interior that has truly won over car shoppers. Today, there are so many crossover SUVs to choose from and models in every size and shape. From massive family haulers to subcompact models, the possibilities are endless.

But what if you’re looking for a crossover SUV that fits somewhere in between? Something with plenty of style, power and the latest automotive features? Introducing the 2018 Kia Sorento. Its spacious cabin comes in five- and seven-passenger configurations and it’s available with the choice of three engine options. Choose from five trims, including the L, LX, EX, SX and SX Limited. If you’re looking for a model a step from the base L, we recommend the LX or the EX. Here’s how the two compare.

The LX and EX models are very different, in particular, because of the engines and high-tech features available. The LX model is standard with a rearview camera, six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, roof rails, three USB ports, a noise-reducing windshield and selectable drive modes. For even more premium features, there are three optional accessories packages available. These include the Convenience, Cool and Connected and Technology packages.

Moving up to the EX model carries over all the features from the EX and adds all the content from the Convenience Package. This includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 7-inch Uvo touchscreen, heated front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. There are also foglights, a hands-free liftgate, power-folding mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and much more.
