There’s a lot of heavy-hitting competition in the midsize SUV class these days, yet despite the challenge, the 2017 Kia Sorento has the potential to thrive. Though this class has a lot of well-established models, offering everything from impressive power to great fuel economy, the Sorento can be configured to compete on pretty much any point.
