  • The new 2021 Kia Sorento starts at $30,560, a significant increase from last year's model.
  • The hybrid model, a new addition to the lineup, starts at $34,760 and is rated at 37 mpg.
  • The 2021 Sorento is on sale now at dealerships.

Kia's new Sorento has arrived, and we now have pricing for the redesigned mid-size SUV. The 2021 Kia Sorento starts at $30,560 for the base LX model, representing an increase of $2450 compared with the 2020 model's base price. Because the previous Sorento's lowest-priced L trim level is no longer part of the lineup, though, prices for equivalent models are more in line with last year's. The new Sorento hybrid starts at $34,760 and the top SX Prestige X-Line model with AWD and a more powerful turbocharged engine is $43,760.

The 2021 Sorento's lower models, the LX and the S ($33,060), come standard with front-wheel drive and a 2.5-liter inline-four with 191 horsepower. The EX ($36,160) has a turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-four with 281 horsepower, as does the top SX ($39,160). All-wheel drive is an $1800 option on all of these models, and the SX model offers a $2600 Prestige package with desirable features such as cooled front seats, a heated steering wheel, and an upgraded audio system. The SX also offers a rugged-looking X-Line appearance package on AWD models.

A hybrid version of the Sorento is new for 2021, and it starts at $34,760 for the S trim level and $37,760 for the better equipped EX. It's offered only with front-wheel drive and is rated to deliver 37 mpg combined by the EPA.

All 2021 Sorentos come standard with a third row of seats; the seven-passenger LX and S have a second-row bench, while the six-passenger EX and SX have second-row captain's chairs. All Sorento hybrids have the captain's chairs.

2021 Kia Sorentos have already begun arriving at dealerships and are on sale now.
