The 2022 Kia Sorento reviews aren’t great

Consumer Reports doesn’t love the 2022 Kia Sorento, or at least not compared to other three-row midsize SUVs. It gets just an overall 46/100. While the road test score is great, at an 83/100, the predicted reliability rating is just 1/5. In addition, the predicted owner satisfaction score is only a 3/5.

The performance scores are pretty good, with the acceleration being perfect and the braking excellent, at a 4/5. The transmission and emergency handling, on the other hand, get only a 3/5. Comfort ratings are also between a 3/5 and a 4/5 for each of the subcategories. Consumer reports says “it has regressed in terms of ride comfort and overall refinement compared with the outgoing model.” 

In addition, Consumer reports says that “The Sorento’s ride is stiff and jumpy, with pronounced impacts from bumps transmitted into the cabin over rough pavement, a sharp contrast to the comfortable ride of the previous model.”

The Kia Sorento doesn’t have great reliability

The 2022 Kia Sorento‘s predicted reliability rating is pretty poor, at just a 1/5. Consumer Reports says that it expects that the Sorento will be way less reliable than other midsize SUVs. It based this prediction on data from the 2021 Kia Sorento, which has a 1/5 for reliability. This is due to a poor rating for the 2021 Sorento’s transmission and body integrity.

The predicted owner satisfaction score for the 2022 Kia Sportage is slightly better than its reliability rating, at a 3/5. Current Sorento owners are happy with its driving experience, giving it a 66/100 and its comfort, at a 50/100. On the other hand, the value is just a 50/100. The styling gets the best score, at an 86/100.

How much does the Sorento cost?

The 2022 Kia Sorento base model costs $29,490. This is called the LX. This comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The Sorento engine makes 191 hp, 181 lb-ft of torque, and is matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It also has LED headlights, heated mirrors, and a height-adjustable driver’s seat.

You have a lot of seat options in the 2022 Kia Sorento interior as well. The second row is a 60/40 split-folding bench seat. In the third row, there are two split-folding seats. The 2022 Kia Sorento LX comes with an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen and a six-speaker sound system. You can use both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in the 2022 Kia Sorento LX.

The 2022 Kia Sorento may have less than favorable reviews and ratings, but that doesn’t mean it has nothing going for it. Its average predicted owner satisfaction score shows that despite the Sorento’s shortcomings, people tend to be at least relatively happy with the 2022 Kia Sorento.
