In recent years, South Korea's Kia and Hyundai brands have been synonymous with overachievement. With each freshening or redesign, these cars, crossovers and SUVs always seem better than anyone would expect. The redesigned 2016 Kia Sorento continues that happy tradition, reaching a level of refinement unprecedented in any Korean model save the pricey Genesis and Equus luxury sedans.
And we're done wondering whether Kia's and Hyundai's high-end models can justify their elevated prices. It's plain that they can. So the $46,495 price tag for our 2016 Kia Sorento SXL is justified by the car's long list of favorable attributes, not to mention its even longer list of standard features.
