The Kia Sorento is equipped with a 191-horsepower four-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission as standard. This combination will get you where you need to go, but acceleration can be lacking at times.

The base Kia Sorento gets 24 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, which is among the best ratings in the midsize SUV class. Fuel economy drops to 23 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway for models with the base engine and all-wheel drive.

The front-wheel-drive Sorento with the turbo-four engine gets 22/29 mpg city/highway, while turbocharged models with AWD get 22/27 mpg.
