Total Performance

Drivers can tailor the Sorento to their performance needs with one of three engine options: the 185-horsepower 2.4L 4-cylinder GDI, the 240-horsepower turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder T-GDI and the 290-horsepower 3.3L V6 GDI with 5,000lb towing capacity. The available Dynamax all-wheel drive system continuously monitors road conditions and anticipates traction requirements to allow drivers to travel every road with confidence.

Sure Footed

The fully automatic and always active Dynamax all-wheel drive system uses electronic sensors to monitor your driving conditions. So when you need more traction and control, more power can be sent to the appropriate wheels and properly distributed for better acceleration and precision turning.

Eyes All Around

Maneuvering is made easy in the Sorento. Shifting into reverse engages the available rearview camera to help you see behind the vehicle. Providing further coverage is an available 360° camera monitoring system that utilizes four cameras at the front, rear and sides to provide you with a bird's eye view of the vehicle. While you reverse, the available rear parking sonars will make an audible warning when they detect certain objects close to your vehicle.

Safety

Designed to Protect

The Sorento's advanced safety systems have been designed to help give you peace of mind every time you drive. Each one is engineered to help you maintain control - from the harshest road conditions to potential emergency situations. The best part is that the systems were programmed to function automatically, leaving you free to focus on safe driving.

Safety

World Class Quality

To achieve structural rigidity that is on par with many luxury cars, the Sorento features a uniquely engineered body that combines Ultra High Strength Steel throughout its structure - more than twice the amount used in previous generations. This body structure provides better crash protection, driving dynamics and is the foundation for not only a quieter ride but also one with peace of mind.

Safety
