The Kia Sorento 2023 gains more standard safety features

This year, the 2023 Kia Sorento (specifically the non-hybrid versions) receives only minor updates. It can’t even brag about getting a new badge. However, Kia has updated the three-row SUV with new features, the most notable of which is the addition of more standard safety equipment on even the base model.

The base LX trim now includes a blind spot and rear cross-traffic alerts. It also includes Safe Exit Assist, which warns of approaching traffic when the doors are opened. Other trims receive minor feature updates. The S now has a wireless phone charger; the EX has an eight-way power adjustable passenger seat and a frameless rear-view mirror; the SX has a 12.3-inch instrument display, power-folding mirrors, and rain-sensing wipers; and the SX Prestige has 115-volt power outlet, retractable rear door shades, and Homelink.

The Sorento’s base price has only risen by $440 to $31,285. All-wheel drive is an additional $1,800. On some trims, this necessitates the addition of the X-Line package, which includes more rugged body parts and other equipment, effectively raising the cost of all-wheel drive.

Base pricing for each trim, plus pricing for the X-Line models, are listed below.

  • LX: $31,285
  • S: $33,785
  • X-Line S (AWD): $35,785
  • EX: $37,185
  • X-Line EX (AWD): $40,885
  • SX: $40,085
  • SX Prestige (AWD): $44,685
  • X-Line SX Prestige (AWD): $44,885
