2021 Kia Sorento Priced From $33,995 In Canada

The midsize SUV segment has a serious rival in the new 2021 Kia Sorento


  • The Sorento is all-new for 2021.

  • AWD is now standard on all trims.

  • Powerful turbocharged 2.5-litre engine included with most versions.


The whole of the Hyundai Group has, in no uncertain terms, declared war on the competition in nearly all segments. The all-new 2021 Kia Sorento returns to the midsize SUV segment swinging hard with more features, a new engine, and a very stylish new face.

Much could be said about the SUV’s styling but we think all that needs to be written is that it is truly handsome. It takes various design cues from the Telluride, all-new K5 and there are even hints of the ultra-cool Kia Stinger in the mix. The cabin is completely new as well. It is thoroughly modern and features, as standard, an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, heated front seats, and more.

For $33,995, the Sorento LX+ also includes the 191-horsepower 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine, an 8-speed automatic transmission, and AWD. The LX Premium, at $36,495, throws in a push-button start, wireless phone charging, power driver seat, heated steering wheel, and a few extra active safety features.

From the $39,495 X-Line, the engine is upgraded to a turbocharged 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine that develops 281 horsepower and 311 lb.-ft. of torque. Seating arrangements go from seven to six with 2nd-row captain seats, and visually, wheels grow to 20 inches, and the exterior garnish and trim is unique to the X-Line.

The $40,995 EX includes synthetic leather seating, Kia UVO Intelligence, a power tailgate, a power passenger seat, satellite radio, and exterior updates such as a black grille. For $43,995, the EX+ gains a panoramic sunroof, extra active safety features such as Forward Collision-Avoidance, and a 10.25-inch infotainment screen.

The top-line SX, at $47,495, gets full leather, a Bose premium audio system, cooled front seats, a head-up display, and more.

For the moment, Kia Canada is confirming that there will be both a Hybrid and a PHEV version of the new Sorento available in the future but there are no further details at this time.
