Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy

The 2024 Sorento Hybrid is a six-passenger midsized crossover that Kia presents in trim packages called EX and SX Prestige. Its hybrid system combines a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor, which together produce 227 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission completes the powertrain. While front-wheel drive is standard on the EX, the SX Prestige comes with traction-enhancing all-wheel drive, which optional for the EX. According to the EPA’s official fuel economy estimations, the front-wheel-drive Sorento Hybrid achieves an estimated 36 mpg in both city and highway driving, while the all-wheel-drive version returns 34 mpg in both conditions.

Standard Equipment

The base EX gets remote start, proximity keyless entry, SynTex leatherette upholstery, heated power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button ignition, second-row captain’s chairs, a 50/50-split third-row bench seat, a dual-level cargo floor, and privacy glass. Its technology highlights are wireless phone charging, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 4-inch digital gauge cluster, six USB charging ports, and two 12-volt power outlets. The exterior is marked by a power liftgate, roof rails, heated power-adjustable side mirrors with built-in LED turn-signal indicators, automatic LED headlights, and LED fog lights.

The SX Prestige edges toward luxury with perforated leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, a driver’s seat with power thigh extension and position memory, a heated steering wheel, heated outboard second-row seats, a 12.3-inch curved digital gauge cluster, Digital Key, a panoramic sunroof, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a frameless auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink. It also has power-folding side mirrors, second-row sunshades, a synthetic-suede headliner, aluminum sport pedals, LED interior lighting, a 115-volt power outlet, and LED taillights.
