Advanced safety
comes standard.

Since its debut over a decade ago, the Sorento has been a model of Kia’s commitment to safety. The legacy lives on with the 2018 Sorento, which features trusted systems like Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD), as well as a reinforced body of 53% advanced high-strength steel.

Active handling.

Experience enhanced control with advanced active safety systems. From more precise handling with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) to additional brake support with Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), the Sorento continuously tracks and adapts to your driving conditions, for peace of mind on any getaway.

Maintain control when it matters most. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps keep you on course, while the Traction Control System (TCS) helps avoid wheel spin. All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) models feature Torque Vectoring Corner Control (TVCC), which applies braking force to the inside rear-corner wheel for increased cornering stability and control.

Advanced braking for improved efficiency: Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) adjusts braking, front to rear, depending on load. The Brake Assist System (BAS) senses emergency braking situations and boosts braking pressure when needed. Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) helps keep your Sorento in place as you accelerate from a stop on an incline.

From the inside out.

The Sorento features trusted passive systems to give you peace of mind. With a body made of 53% advanced high-strength steel, plus advanced airbags and seat-belt systems, the Sorento delivers protection when you need it most.

Built with patented construction techniques, industrial-strength adhesives, and even more advanced high-strength steel for exceptional body rigidity.

The advanced airbag system features sensors that detect impact levels and the presence of a front passenger, helping to manage airbag inflation.

The front seats come with height-adjustable seat-belt anchors for a proper fit, as well as pretensioners that tighten the seat belts in certain collisions. Every seat has three-point seat belts for over-the-lap and shoulder straps, and the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH) system helps to securely install a child seat.
