2013 Kia Sorento Gets UVO, More Features in Refresh

By Jacob Brown | March 14, 2012
Not ones to rest on their laurels, the folks at Kia have refreshed the midsize 2013 Kia Sorento crossover, giving it a slightly updated look and more features in each trim level. Starting with the base 2013 Kia Sorento LX, the Korean automaker will make its voice-command UVO infotainment system available for the first time in three model years. Sorento LXs will also have a new convenience package available, which will come with an eight-way power driver's seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a first aid kit. LX V-6 models will have a standard third-row bench seat. In the mid-level 2013 Kia Sorento EX, Kia will be offering all models with leather seats as standard equipment on both four-cylinder and V-6 models. A third-row bench seat will also be available, as well as being available for the top-range Sorento SX. Lastly, the 2013 Kia Sorento SX will lose some standard equipment to lower its point of entry. The 2013 Kia Sorento is available with three engine options: a base 2.4-liter four-cylinder available only in entry-level LX models with 175 horsepower, an advanced direct-injected version of the 2.4-liter engine making 191 horsepower for available in LX models and standard in EX four-cylinder models, and a 276-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 available in LX and EX models and standard for SX models. All of them come with a six-speed automatic and all-wheel drive is available. Pricing for the 2013 Kia Sorento has not been announced, nor has a release date, but we expect to see it on dealership lots by summer at prices that stick close to the 2012 model's, which starts at $23,950, including $800 for destination and handling.
