IRVINE, Calif. – The 2023 Kia Sorento enters the new model year with improved packaging across all trims, building upon its generous array of standard features, especially advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS).

Starting with the base LX, its roster of ADAS has been extended to include standard blind spot collision-avoidance (BCA), rear cross traffic collision avoidance and safe exit assist.

All other trims gain convenience features that were previously optional: the S gets a wireless smartphone charger; the EX gets an 8-way power front passenger seat and frameless rear view mirror; and the SX gets a 12.3-inch color digital instrument panel, power-folding exterior mirrors and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

The range-topping SX Prestige now comes with standard all-wheel drive (AWD), which includes gloss back exterior accents and revised bumpers as part of the treatment. Other added features include a 115-volt power inverter that can charge household items such as a laptop, Homelink, and retractable rear door shades.

The X-Line package continues to add a rugged look to the Sorento with unique bumper and exterior details, 20-inch alloy wheels and bridge-type roof rack.
