What model Kia Sorento is best?
The Sorento is again available with eight trims for 2023: LX, S, X-Line S AWD, EX, X-Line EX AWD, SX, SX Prestige, and X-Line SX Prestige AWD. We like the X-Line S AWD trim best, as it comes with the naturally aspirated powertrain and less troublesome eight-speed automatic.
