Overall:

This 2019 was the best SXL AWD Ive owned and I have owned 3 SXL s AWD prior to this model year all with appox 85k miles before being traded in . (still own a 2014 Lx) . The SXL was KIAs best Model as it was loaded out with everything except a toothbrush . Sadly KIA messed up by discontinuing the 2020 SXL line on the Sorento. which has sent me to a VW Premier AWD as it HAS EVERYTHING the KIA had . Kudos however for the 2019 as saved our lives after a major accident with all its safety features . As to date I have owned 14 Kias in total as I bought my girls Kias. also and love them. .

2019 Kia Sorento Review
Kenmar41 says:
The KIA Sorento is a well made SUV, roomy, comfortable and excellent 3 seat configuration. Leg room is good front and back. Cargo space is great with third seats folded down. V6 engine is peppy and average gas mileage is 28 mpg combined for a good sized SUV.

"First of all I liked the V6 over the 4 cyl. Second, I like the dash, front windshield is bigger, able to see better. The dash controls were easier to operate. Larger cargo space and a more comfortable ride."

2019 Kia Sorento S V6 FWD Review
GuruXP4BS says:
Test drove all of the SUVs. Also went and rented all of the SUVs. Toyota RAV, Honda Pilot, Nissan Rogue and even the Ford Edge. The overall winner was the V6 Kia Sorento LX model or now that its newer s model. You cant go wrong with the middle model Sorento SUV which is called the S now. Wait for them to be used because as soon as you drive them off the lot you lose $10,000. Which makes for a great used car bargain. I bought mine for right under $20,000 with only 14000 miles on it. So I saved $10,000. However enough about money where the rubber meets the road is that it has a ultimate Powerful V6 engine. Has great towing capacity. Has ultimate cargo area. Totally drove better than all of the others. And it actually gets decent gas mileage 29 MPG Highway. And about 25 mpg .mixed City driving. I love all of the great safety features. This V6 is tried-and-true in this Kia line of cars. Have put around 30,000 of trouble free miles on it. Nothing but preventive maintenance so far. Have other Kia products in my driveway that Ive put 200,000 miles on so all of those old mechanics that say these cars are not good. Need to go back and look at what they are making these cars like now. I would say Kia was junk 2006 and below. However after 2006 Kia Motors got serious. If you notice Kia is one of the top auto manufacturers in the nation right now in a lot of non-partisan car magazines like Motor Trend and Consumer Reports. The new Kias are actually out doing Honda, Toyota, and also Nissan. Gone are the days that Kia is not a Reliable Auto. Plus they have the best warranty in the business at a hundred thousand miles. Theres a reason they put that there. They know their cars are built to last now. Go test drive them you will see they drive better than all of the rest. They give you the most options for the money. And you will have it paid off long before a Honda, Toyota, or even a Subaru. Drive something you can pay off before it gets old. Try the Kia line and save about $15,000. You wont be sorry they now last 200000 miles or more just like Toyota ,Honda or Subaru. Stick to the middle of the road one without the sunroof. But make sure you get the V6 motor in the Kia Sorento. And you will get a lot of mileage out of it. Just keep the maintenance up and you will be fine with your $15,000 in your pocket that you saved.

Looks/Style Ranked 2019 Toyota RAV4 Limited FWD worse.
"Like the interior cargo space of the Kia better. Toyota drove so clumsy. Gas mileage was better in the Kia. The power of the engine of the Kia was much better then the Toyota 4 cylinder. Safety features goes to Kia also. Also it was $15,000 less and had a bigger hundred thousand mile which Kia offers."
Front Seats Ranked 2019 Toyota RAV4 Limited FWD worse.
"Much more usable space in the Kia Sorento both back and front and cargo. The Toyota had a lot of wasted space with the console. Also ergonomics were very easy in the Kia Sorento. Enjoyed the seats a lot better in the Kia. Children felt like they had a lot more room in the Kia. Love the flat floor in the back of the Kia with the third seat down. Really dont understand why people dont buy more Sorrentos especially the V6. Drives like a race car and sits very nice and has excellent posture control."
