    2003 Kia Sorento Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Kia Sorento

    • Sorento is the only under-$30,000 SUV with standard front and rear side-curtain airbags.

      - AutoWeek
    • With all the available seat adjustments, such as front- and rear-cushion tilt, it's a breeze for short and tall drivers alike to get comfortable behind the wheel.

      - Edmunds.com
    • The engine is smooth and powerful, barely perceptible at idle but producing a velvety roar at full throttle.

    What reviewers liked least about the Kia Sorento

    • The ride is okay, based on our few-hour drive, though in 2wd the rear tires got skittish on gravelly curves at modest speed.

      - AutoWeek
    • The EX has splashes of 'woodgrain' trim, which is plastic doing a poor job imitating wood.

    Kia Sorento Comparisons

    • At the test track the Sorento ran to 60 mph in 9.3 seconds and took 17.1 ticks to run down the quarter-mile. These figures actually place the Kia near the front of the pack when compared to rivals such as the Ford Escape V6, Jeep Liberty and Hyundai Santa Fe.

      - Edmunds.com
    • The Kia Sorento is a roomy vehicle, offering slightly more headroom and equal front shoulder room to that of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • $5,000 to $6,000 less than comparable SUVs. Yet it comes loaded with standard features.

    Best one-liner about the Kia Sorento

    • Just a few years ago, Kia was as anonymous as a wanna-be rock star at karaoke night.
