Guys,
Got a pearl white EX with no options...
Kia has awesome rebate on Sorentos.. basically $5k Off plus $4k off by dealer.. so in total, $9K off msrp..
Was thinking about buying a use done but new ones are much cheaper i guess
I am in san Diego... no AWD for me..

I was looking for the smallest 3 row suv and i think this is the best out there..
3rd row to be used very rarely...

Thanks a lot to this forum for all the knowledge..

Sorento for sure is getting replaced by telluride as I had predicted long time back.

I do like my Sorento but waiting a few months to buy it would have saved me thousands. Timing is everything.

Thank goodness No Turbo /// 2019 Sorento SX L V6 (FWD)

Are they going to be coming out with a 2020 Sorento?

Anyone know? No one at my local KIA dealership seems to know.

They are not going to discontinue their best sellig model. What I expect to happen is that they market the Sorento as a 5 seater and the Telluride as the 7. Lots of people, like me, have no need for the third row of seats.

The Sportage is on the small side for a compact SUV. They still would need something to be sized between the Sportage and the Telluride.

I agree about the Sportage. I test drove one that was loaded, it was nice. When I left the dealer and sat down in my 2016 Sorento SX, I said NOPE. Too small

Agreed. Why would they discontinue their best selling CUV. It competes nicely against the Ford Edge and like sized CUV's.

Itís June and there is no 2020 Sorento yet. And it is too expensive compared to the Telluride, in fact more expensive when comparably equipped and smaller.
