The SUV was nice and well appointed at the EX trim. It felt and drove in a entry level luxury level. Its a nice smaller 3 row SUV. The dealership environment fell short for brand reaching towards luxury.

2016 Kia Sorento EX V6 AWD Review
billbrush says:
Really impressed with this Kia Sorento ExV6 AWD. We were looking for a midsize SUV with three rows or seats. The Nissan Pathfinder was a big contender in our search. In fact it definitely had some pros over the Kia but in the end the Kia had more pros than the Nissan. I like the looks of the Kia much more than the pathfinder, the electronics and safety features were far and away better on the Kia than pathfinder. The second but mostly third row seats in the pathfinder were roomier. I am a big guy and sit comfortably in either vehicles second row. The third row seats in both are comfortable but where the Kia falls short is head room. A full size adult simply cant sit in the Kia third row with out hitting their head on the headliner. However, we have this feature more for our younger child and friends than anything else so for us it wasnt that big of a deal. The storage is all but none in the Kia when the third row of seats are utilized. Again this is a point for the pathfinder. Two of the biggest reasons we picked the Kia were the front seats and price. First off what you get for the price in a KIA is outstanding. Secondly, most people buying these SUVs are two income families. That said I feel the passenger should always be just as comfortable as the driver. Nissan refuses for what ever reason to give that option to the passenger. The adjustability of the front passenger seat is lacking in the pathfinder where as in the Kia it is the identical seat with the identical power adjustments as the driver. This may be a little thing for some people but to us, we both pay for this vehicle and whom ever is driving or riding as the passenger deserves to be comfortable.

Cargo Capacity Ranked 2016 Nissan Pathfinder better.
"The rear cargo space is nearly double to triple that on the Nissan Pathfinder compared to the Kia Sorento. Only a big deal if third row is often utilized and in our case it is not."
Family Car Ranked 2016 Nissan Pathfinder worse.
"Easy to maneuver, three rows or seats, safety features, price."
